TV Releases April 2021 - Staying in and socially-distanced?

Our top movies and series should help you pass some of that time!

Coming 2 America
It only took 30 years, but the follow up to Eddie Murphy’s hit comedy is finally making its royal debut. This time, it’s an even bigger family affair: Murphy’s (now) King Akeem along with his trusted friend Semmi (played by Arsenio Hall) jet back to America to find Akeem’s only male heir, his son (Jermaine Fowler) that he may have left in New York. Meanwhile, his eldest daughter Princess Meeka (KiKi Layne) back in Zamunda is left to wonder why she can’t just rule herself.

Based on the ground-breaking comic book by Robert Kirkman, this animated superhero drama series revolves around 17-year-old Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun), who is just like every other guy his age, except for the fact that his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons). The series also features Sandra Oh, Zazie Beetz, Gillian Jacobs, Zachary Quinto, Jason Mantzoukas, Mark Hamill, Mahershala Ali, Seth Rogen and more.

Formula One: Drive to Survive - Season 3
It’s that time of year again: the Formula One season has begun, which means the third season of Drive to Survive has dropped on Netflix. This year, things are a little different: Covid-19 first postponed and then shortened the season and introduced a whole host of regulations that made filming a little more difficult than usual. But all those changes also resulted in some incredible races that the producers have refined into a series of 10 episodes, each one following a different team.

Worn Stories
In this funny, heartfelt and moving docuseries, real people unpack the fascinating and quirky stories around their most meaningful pieces of clothing. In eight episodes, a diverse array of people, their clothes and the stories behind them are introduced, all far from concepts related to fast fashion shopping or the season’s must-have garment.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
Set after the events of Avengers: Endgame, this new entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe sees Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) unite to try and live up to the legacy left behind by Captain America. Unlike WandaVision, this show goes big on the spectacle early on – MCU fans won’t be disappointed by the movie-level set pieces on display here.

Before the Flood
From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens and Academy Award-winning actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio, Before the Flood presents a riveting account of the dramatic changes now occurring around the world due to climate change.
