The sun is out, the snow has melted, and the birds are chirping. However, thanks to Netflix many of us may be skipping the nice weather and instead will be spending it on the couch binging the newest Netflix has to offer this April.

One of the only Netflix original movies released this month include the directorial debut of Brie Larson in the inspirational comedy entitled “Unicorn Store”. The plot is exactly as the title suggests, a struggling artist who failed out of art school, discovers a store owned by Samuel L. Jackson’s character that sells unicorns. The casting reunites Larson and Jackson after the successful “Captain Marvel”. “Unicorn Store” may be so strange and obscure that it just may be worth the watch when it comes on the platform April 5.

Netflix may be lacking in original movies this month, but they definitely make up for it in original series’. For anime fans that love campy cheesy fun, the new series entitled “Ultraman” is set to be released April 1. 

This continuation of the live-action 1960’s television show will use CG effects to further the plot about a super-enhance scientist who uses martial arts to fight to protect his city from giant monsters.

After part one premeiring only about 5 months ago, part two of the cult-favorite television show “The Chilling adventures of Sabrina” is already set to be released April 5. Fans of “Riverdale” or the original 90’s sitcoms should definitely check out this dark retelling of everyone’s favorite teen witch.

Netflix’s first use of interactive story telling in December of 2018’s “Black Mirror’s Bandersnatch” was a giant success. Netflix plans to copy that success with their new series “You v.s. Wild. Following the star of the hit television show “Man v.s. Wild” viewers will be able to choose how survivalist Bear Grylls will make it through the wilderness. Those interested can learn how survive the jungle from the comfort of their own home April 10.

The highly anticipated new Kevin Hart stand up special “Irresponsible” is also set for release April 2.

This month Netflix is not only adding new original content but they are also adding some great movies from the past. For those who are not looking for a laugh on April fools day and would rather spend their day getting scared, the streaming platform is releasing many horror films April 1.

These include; the 2009 remake of “Friday the 13th”, the ultra-gory and campy Freddy V.S. Jason, the crime thriller “Bone Collector” starring Angelina Jolie and Denzel Washington, “Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, and lastly the classic backwoods nightmare of a movie “Deliverance.

Other notable movies coming on Netflix this month include the stoner-comedy “Pineapple Express” just in time for April 20, “All the President’s Men” April 1, and the highly-acclaimed sci-fi/ fantasy “Fifth element will also release April 1.
