Bored of aimlessly scrolling through Netflix? Spend hours searching for something to watch? Want to know what new releases are coming up? Well I’ve done the research for you – here is the top 3 titles of Netflix’s newest releases this April.
Thunder Force (2021)
This is a recent release from Netflix directed by Ben Falcone. Falcone’s wife Melissa McCarthy stars in a leading role, both having teamed up on several occasions to release titles that you may already be familiar with The Boss, Life of the Party, Superintelligence, and, now, Thunder Force.
The premise is that criminals are now becoming super villains, Octavian Spencer as Emily Stanton has developed the technology to give ordinary citizens super powers as a means to fight back. This goes awry when Melissa McCarthy as her estranged best-friend Lydia takes the formula.
Can these two unlikely heroes save the day? Will the film successfully balance it’s comedy against the seriousness that comes with superhero stories? You can watch the trailer below and find out for yourself
Love and Monsters (2020)
This movie has been a long time in the making with original development starting back in 2012. Despite production delays and it’s debut release via video on demand, due to Covid restrictions, Love and Monsters has been met with critical acclaim.
Love and Monsters is an apocalyptic action-adventure moving co-starring Dylan O’Brien and Jessica Henwick as on screen love interests.
The visuals look incredible – i.e. the collective of jellyfish floating in the sky and the graphics surrounding various monsters that inhabit Earth. This is certainly one to add to your watch list if you have not already.
Shadow And Bone (2021)
It is safe to say that you may have been living under a rock to have not heard all the buzz surrounding Netflix’s launch of their newest TV series. Based on the worldwide bestselling debut novel written by Leigh Bardugo.
