Chris Hemsworth is a mercenary on a deadly rescue mission in Extraction, an action thriller written by Joe Russo (Avengers: Endgame) and directed by Sam Hargrave, longtime stunt coordinator whose work includes Captain America: Civil WarAtomic Blonde and Avengers: Infinity War.

A kidnapped boy beckons the unparalleled skill of a mercenary named Tyler Rake (Hemsworth). But Rake is a broken man with nothing to lose, harbouring a death wish that makes an already deadly mission near impossible.

Extraction streams from 24 April

The Willoughbys

Based on the beloved children’s novel, four siblings believe they’re better off raising themselves and trick their awful parents to go on a life-threatening vacation in Netflix animated family film The Willoughbys. Features the voices of Will Forte, Maya Rudolph, Martin Short and Ricky Gervais.

The Willoughbys streams from 22 April

Coffee & Kareem

When a 12-year-old boy hires a criminal to scare off his mum’s new police officer boyfriend, the scheme backfires horrendously in this buddy comedy. With the situation out of control, the kid and the cop must work together to take down Detroit’s most ruthless kingpin. Stars Ed Helms (The Hangover), Taraji P Henson (Hidden Figures) and Betty Gilpin.

Coffee & Kareem streams from 3 April

Brews Brothers

Stuck at home, but want to feel like you’re at a craft beer bar? Crack a cold one and hang out with the cast of sitcom Brews Brothers. This 8-episode comedy series from showrunner Greg Schaffer (That ’70s Show) is set in a struggling craft brew bar, whose owner is surprised by the arrival of his estranged brother. Both highly competitive, and passionate about making beer, they’ll butt heads and etc etc (you know the sitcom drill).

Brews Brothers streams from 10 April

Cooked with Cannabis

Netflix’s new competitive cooking show sees chefs vie for the favour of judges and special guests with “their artful use of leafy herb, THC infusions and CBD sauces”. Hosted by Kelis, and with a launch date that makes much more sense the way Americans order their dates—4/20, geddit?—this could be just the thing if you’ve hotboxed all the way through all seasons of Top Chef.

Cooked with Cannabis streams from 20 April

Modern movie classics

A bunch of great catalogue titles arrive on Netflix in April—the perfect time to revisit (or discover) supremely-watchable pics like Catch Me If You Can, Mission Impossible – Fallout, BlacKkKlansman, Superbad, and The Breakfast Club (if the plight of being cooped up in detention isn’t too close to the bone) and many more. See the full list of April titles below.
