Netflix’s New Releases Coming in April 2021



Idris Elba, Melissa McCarthy, Octavia Spencer and Anna Kendrick are just some of the big stars with new films hitting Netflix next month.

At the beginning of the month, Elba saddles up for Concrete Cowboy, which Netflix acquired after the movie premiered at last year’s Toronto Film Festival. A week later, Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer join forces as crime-fighting superheroes in Thunder Force.

Later in the month, Anna Kendrick, Daniel Dae Kim and Toni Collette deal with an unexpected passenger on a trip to space in Stowaway.

The month ends with the voices of Abbi Jacobson, Danny McBride and Maya Rudolph as ordinary family members who embark on a road trip and end up trying to save humanity from a robot uprising in the animated The Mitchells vs. The Machines, produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Spider-Man: Into the Spider VerseThe Lego Movie). The film, previously titled Connected, was sold by Sony Pictures to Netflix in January.

Other noteworthy movies hitting Netflix in April include Legally Blonde, Friends With Benefits, Insidious, The Pianist, The Time Traveler’s Wife, Yes Man, The Zookeeper’s Wife, Miss Sloane and August: Osage County.

On the TV side, Netflix is premiering Shadow and Bone, based on Leigh Bardugo’s bestselling Grishaverse novels, on April 23 as well as the third installment of Family Reunion and the Jamie Foxx-starrer Dad Stop Embarrassing Me! earlier in the month. The streamer is also adding new seasons of reality series The Circle, The Wedding Coach and the Gaten Matarazzo-hosted Prank Encounters.

Other TV shows being added to Netflix include the third season of PJ Masks and the first (and only) season of ABC’s The Baker and the Beauty.
