What’s coming soon to Amazon Prime Video in November 2021?
Amazon is stepping up its game this November, with the debut of its fantasy epic The Wheel of Time – but there’s plenty of other exclusives and acquisitions on offer, from a Liam Neeson thriller and a Chippendale reality series to a sporting biopic, a volley of tennis tournaments and a new collection of stand-up specials from London’s Soho Theatre.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Amazon Prime Video UK in November 2021:
ATP Rolex Paris Masters – 1st November

The Green Hornet – 2nd November
The Green Hornet changed comic book hands multiple times during its run, but Michel Gondry stamps his one-off personality all over this madcap blockbuster, which lets Seth Rogen do his funny thing while still punching people in the face. Daft turns from Christoph Waltz and James Franco complete the entertainment – while enjoyably OTT editing makes the visuals as entertaining as everything else.
