Want to know what to watch this month? Michael B. Jordan wants revenge, John Stamos courts attention, Bad Bunny battles The Miz in Wrestlemania, and gamers get their kicks with Mortal Kombat in April’s streaming picks.

 

 

What to Watch on Amazon Prime: April 2021

Michael B. Jordan has played a Marvel villain (Black Panther) and a Rocky hero (Creed) and now he’s taking on the Jack Ryan extended universe. Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse (Amazon Prime, April 30) is the explosive origin story of Navy Seal John Clark (Jordan), who uncovers an international conspiracy as he seeks revenge after being wounded in an assassination attempt that resulted in the murder of his pregnant wife. (The John Clark character was previously portrayed by Willem Dafoe in 1994’s Clear and Present Danger and Liev Schreiber in 2002’s The Sum of All Fears.) Could this action thriller eventually lead to a crossover sequel with John Krasinski’s Jack Ryan? Maybe, but Jordan kicks ass on his own.

What to Watch on HBO Max: April 2021

The classic video game Mortal Kombat (HBO Max, April 16) gets an epic, R-rated adaptation. New protagonist Cole Young (Lewis Tan) battles along with familiar fighters like Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim), Scorpion (Hiroyuki Sonada), Sonya Blade (Jessica McNamee), Mileena (Sisi Stringer), and Jax (Mehcad Brooks) in an intergalactic martial tournament for the ages. The restricted trailer shows that the movie has definitely captured the vivid violence of the video game experience; let’s hope the story will be fun for viewers when they can’t control the characters

What to Watch on Netflix: April 2021

Stowaway (Netflix, April 22) is like Survivor in space. While on a mission to Mars, a crew—medical researcher (Anna Kendrick), biologist (Daniel Dae Kim), and commander (Toni Collette)—is faced with a dangerous decisions when a stowaway (Shamier Anderson) accidentally causes devastating damage to the spacecraft’s life-support systems.
There may not be enough oxygen left for everyone—and the resulting dilemma may not bring out the best in everyone on board.

What to Watch on Disney Plus: April 2021

John Stamos goes from Full House to full court press on the dramedy series Big Shot (Disney+, premiering April 16). He plays a hot-tempered basketball coach (a chair-throwing Bobby Knight type) who is fired from his NCAA job and begrudgingly takes a teaching and coaching position at an elite all-girls private high school. Can his team help put him on a road to redemption after his fall from grace? Created by Brad Garrett, Dean Storey, and David E. Kelley, this sentimental story about second chances is worth a shot. It’s The Way Back meets The Mighty Ducks.

What to Watch on Hulu: April 2021

Blame it on Bigfoot! In the tantalizing and terrifying true crime docu-series, Sasquatch (Hulu, April 20), journalist David Holthouse investigates a haunting rumor about three Mexican men who were torn apart limb from limb (supposedly by a Sasquatch) while working at a Northern California pot farm in 1993. Holthouse learns that the truth about the triple homicide is even more troubling in a twisted saga of greed and the power of myth.

What to Watch on Peacock: April 2021

Talk about a wild card! The line-up for Wrestlemania 37 (Peacock, April 10 and 11) includes Drew McIntyre vs. Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship, Sasha Banks vs. Bianca Belair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship, and Bad Bunny vs. The Miz- and that’s just night one! Night two features Roman Reigns vs. Edge for the Universal Championship, Asuka vs. Rhea Ripley for the Raw Women’s Championship and The Fiend vs. Randy Orton. With more matches yet to be set, the WWE promises to make Peacock more than just a place to watch The Office and Friends.
