Whats new on Netflix: New Netflix original movies April 2021

Thunder Force

Debuts April 9 

Have you grown tired of overly serious superhero movies? Let Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer be the solution to your problems with the hilarious Thunder Force. McCarthy stars at Spencer’s bumbling estranged best friend who accidentally gives the duo superpowers.

Facing a world full of supervillians, they team up to create the Thunder Force, a two woman war on crime. After the four hour Synder Cut this will be a breath of fresh air.

Concret Cowboy

April 2

Based on the true story of the real life story of Philadelphia’s Fletcher Street Cowboys, Concret Cowboys might be April’s sleeper on Netflix. During a long summer visiting his father (Idris Elba) in Philly, a teenage boy finds himself torn between the streets and an urban cowboy subculture.

Stunningly filmed and starring Caleb McLaughlin, Jharrel Jerome, Byron Bowers, Lorraine Toussaint and Clifford “Method Man” Smith, Concret Cowboy can’t be missed. Here’s the trailer.

What’s new on Netflix: New classic movies April 2021

Crimson Peak (2015)

Available April 16

Guillermo del Toro’s classic gothic ghost story is finally bringing its blood-soaked horrors to Netflix. When Edith was a little girl her mother died tragically while watching over her. But she never really left, visiting again as a ghost.

Now in adulthood and wealthy from her inheritance, Edith writes ghost stories as shares a life with her husband Sir Thomas. Until a mysterious secret makes her question everything she knows. Equal parts romantic and nightmarish, this is one of del Toro’s best.

What’s new on Netflix: Original series February 2021

Firefly Lane

Available April 14

Jamie Foxx is possibly the greatest entertainer of our modern era, if only through sheer versitiliy. He’s one Tony short of an EGOT, which might make his return to the sitcom world strange for some. For us, we’re excited to see him doing short-form TV for the first time since The Jamie Foxx Show.

Dad Stop Embarrassing Me finds Foxx as a single father raising his teenage father with the help of his dad, played by David Alan Grier. Blending wholesome family comedy with Netflix’s slight edge. Given the talent of the cast, the promise of Foxx in multiple roles, we’re sold.

The Circle Season 2

Available April 21

Netflix’s gloriously dystopian game show The Circle is back for season 2, with new games and new lies. Another group of hot strangers will live in solo apartments, communicating through a messaging app and trying to find who’s lying about their identity.

Right off the bat, things are off to a wild start with the show’s first “celebrity” Chloe from Netflix’s Too Hot to Handle. But that is just the beginning of the brain games and chaos that await. Season 1 of The Circle was one of 2020s biggest sleeper hits. We expect the same from Season 2.
