the fall

Want to know what's new on Amazon Prime Instant Video this month? Check out this little lot.

The Fall

Originally shown on BBC2, this cat-and-mouse crime drama stars Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan.

Met Police Superintendent Stella Gibson (Anderson) is seconded to the Police Service of Northern Ireland to assess the progress of a murder investigation that has remained active for more than 28 days.

It soon becomes clear that a serial killer is at large, played by Dornan, who starts taunting Gibson as to his whereabouts. Nail-biting stuff.

Ray Donovan

Ray Donovan (Liev Schrieber) is a Hollywood fixer and fills his days arranging bribes and payoffs for corrupt public officials.

However, things take a turn a turn for the worse when Donovan's father (played by Jon Voight) is released from prison, and the FBI tries to bring down Ray and his associates. Stick with it, it really starts to find its way in the second series.

Gravity

Sandra Bullock and George Clooney star in this space-set thriller, which won seven Oscars, among them best director and best visual effects.

Bullock plays Dr Ryan Stone, an astronaut tasked with attaching a scanning device to the Hubble telescope. To say things go wrong would be an understatement.

Revealing any more would ruin it, so just sit back and enjoy one of the biggest cinematic spectacles of recent years. And don't forget to breathe.

The Dark Knight Rises

Tom Hardy is the Bane of Christian Bale's life in the latest instalment in the Batman franchise. Anne Hathaway also appears in an impressive turn as a cat burglar.

Bane is leading an insurrection of underground warriors to destroy Gotham City and with it Batman. Obviously Batman/Bruce Wayne has other ideas. Bane is an impressively menacing, if incomprehensible, baddie, and the set pieces are suitably epic.

Contagion

If there's one man to update the all-star disaster film (think 'Earthquake' or 'Towering Inferno'), it's Steven Soderbergh.

Gwenyth Paltrow plays Beth, a woman who cheats on her husband and puts her illness symptoms down to jet lag.

But in fact, she's the first to suffer from a highly infectious disease that will soon spread around the world.

It also stars Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Laurence Fishburne, Marion Cotillard and Jude Law.
