What’s New on Netflix Canada – April 2019

By Marriska Fernandes on March 25, 2019 | 1 Comment

New on Netflix Canada - April 2019As we head into the next quarter of the year (already?), we want to see more binge-worthy content with (or without) bae and our trusty BFF squad.

The influx of rom-coms on Netflix (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, The Kissing Booth, Set It Up) have been quite popular with viewers. How many times did you and your crew have sleepovers while watching chick flicks? Cue: Violins. How many times did you sleep with one eye open after Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes? Cue: Horror movie sound track.

That being said, action and comedy haven’t taken a back seat either — Triple Frontier with Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac and Charlie Hunnam, and comedy series Turn Up Charlie with Idris Elba were among the new gems released last month. So here’s what you can help yourself to this April!

Netflix Originals

Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) is back in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 2 (April 5) and if we’re lucky, it might just be a whole lot darker. Sabrina is no longer the simple witch from season 1; she has now claimed her full power by signing the Book of the Beast, and will be a full-time student at The Academy of Unseen Arts. I hope more chilling adventures await.

If you think you’ve seen every nature documentary worthy of your time, then wait until you’ve watched this one. Our Planet (April 5) is an eight-part documentary series that not only showcases the beauty of Earth, but also highlights the urgency of actively helping protect nature and wildlife. It’s made with a lot of heart — watch this with family and friends.

How many times did you wish you had a fake bf to take as a plus-one to a wedding or to make your ex jealous? Go on, admit it. This teen rom-com titled The Perfect Date (April 12) is about high school teen Brooks Rattigan (Noah Centineo), who creates an app in which he offers his services either as a fake date or to stand in as a boyfriend when needed. You know how things go from there, but I just can’t wait to enjoy this rom-com. If only someone developed said app IRL.

Another rom-com I can’t wait to watch with our squad is Someone Great (April 19). It follows music journalist Jenny (Gina Rodriguez), who has been with her boyfriend for nine years in New York City. When she gets a job offer in San Francisco, her boyfriend breaks up with her. She deals with her heartbreak with the help of her two closest friends (Brittany Snow, DeWanda Wise). It’s a movie to watch with your BFFs, hands down.

Zombie apocalypse movies have a huge cult fan following and rightfully so. Who wouldn’t want to know how to survive a zombie apocalypse? I recommend the new Netflix original series titled Black Summer (April 11). In the dark, early days of a zombie apocalypse, complete strangers band together to find the strength they need to survive and get back to their loved ones. Sound good? We need all the tips we can get.

A horror/thriller to enjoy in April is the Netflix original film titled The Silence (April 12). When the world is under attack from terrifying creatures who hunt their human prey by sound, 16-year-old Ally Andrews (Kiernan Shipka), who lost her hearing at 13, and her family seek refuge in a remote place outside the city. Sounds like they need “a quiet place,” amirite? However, there’s a sinister cult whose intentions aren’t quite noble, as they try to exploit Ally’s heightened senses.

Heartfelt and Inspirational
In What They Had (April 12), a woman (Hilary Swank) returns home to Chicago to see her mother, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s. Her brother (Michael Shannon) thinks their mother belongs in a nursing home, but their father doesn’t agree. This is a heartfelt story about family, love and loss. Note: Must bring tissues.

In Pope Francis: A Man of His Word (April 4), Pope Francis travels all around the world and this film shares his message of hope and peace. Here’s a film we can all learn something from.

All Hail Superheroes
For fans of the DC Universe, Wonder Woman (April 29) is here for streaming. Gal Gadot gives a strong performance as Diana Prince, Princess of the Amazons who kicks butt and puts the super in superhero.

Our Picks
Want to laugh your heart out? Snatched (April 1) is a comedy starring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn. What happens when your boyfriend dumps you before your exotic vacation? You travel with your mother, of course. This film is packed with all things appropriate (and inappropriate) to watch with your mom and/or friends.

One of my favorite movies of 2017 was Split (April 1). It is a twisted, compelling film unlocked from the mind of M. Night Shyamalan. Split follows a man named Kevin (James McAvoy) who has 23 different personalities. Shyamalan builds the suspense and keeps you hanging onto your seat until the end — and his signature twists are in true Shyamalan style.

Who says romance is dead? At least, not for Christian (Jamie Dornan) and Ana (Dakota Johnson), who are trying to make it work in Fifty Shades Darker (April 1). Love, power, betrayal and jealousy make this one steamy film.

Until next time, happy streaming! ~Marriska Fernandes
