Every show and movie coming to Neon this April


Neon holds a giant basket full of goodies to keep you entertained this Easter season. This includes an on-the-run series from a frequent Phoebe Waller-Bridge collaborator, and one of last year’s loveliest family films.

Run

In this limited HBO series, Golden Globe nominee Merritt Wever (Unbelievable) plays a woman living a humdrum life. Desperate for something more—or something else—she responds to a text activating an “escape plan” her and an old flame (Domhnall Gleeson, Goodbye, Christopher Robin) concocted years ago.

Created and written by longtime Phoebe Waller-Bridge collaborator Vicky Jones (director of the original Fleabag stage show), with a Waller-Bridge appearance in the show teased in its trailer.

Streaming on Neon 13th April

What We Do in the Shadows: Season 2

Making its own mark with a well-received first season, the vampire comedy series based on Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi’s hilarious mockumentary gets a new batch of episodes. Considering how many delicious vampire cameos they managed to cram into the first season, we cannot wait to see what they’re able to conjure up next.

Abominable

Last year’s modest hit for DreamWorks Animation follows a young woman and her pals who encounter a stranded Yeti in their city. With a shady force out to capture the loveable creature, they set out on a 3000-mile quest from Shanghai to his home in the Himalayas.

“Impresses in its scale and colorful flights of fancy, as well as in its awesome eagerness to please.” -HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Downton Abbey

Where movie-to-TV adaptations have proved very successful recently, last year’s British hit showed the opposite to be true as well. The UK series’ creator, Julian Fellowes, assembles the original cast for this feature outing. Yes, that includes the impeccable Maggie Smith and Hugh Bonneville.

“Fans of the enduringly popular ITV period drama series will no doubt embrace this feature film spin-off, which represents a step up in lavish visual spectacle while retaining a comforting familiarity of themes and storytelling style.” -SCREEN DAILY

Stuber

Funny buff guy Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) and funny guy who is now buff Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick) lead this buddy comedy about an unorthodox detective (Bautista) on the hunt for a notorious killer, forcing the help of an Uber driver (Nanjiani) who cannot risk losing a five-star rating.

“The best thing about Stuber is the two leads, Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani. Both have buckets of charisma and charm, and putting them together as an unlikely crime-fighting duo should only make their appeal exponentially greater.” Daniel Rutledge, FLICKS (full review)
