The turning of the calendar means that Netflix is clearing its library of old content and bringing in a truckload of fresh additions. The streamer has announced an impressive slate of movies and television shows that will be new to Netflix throughout April 2020.
Among the streamer's early dump of popular previously released action titles are several franchise entries, including all four installments of the classic action hit Lethal Weapon, which shows up April 1st. Once you've got your fix of Mel Gibson and Danny Glover's spit-fire chemistry, you might want to try your hand at several other action entries that are classics in their own right. Among them are the '90s video-game adaptation Mortal Kombat on the 1st, and, for Quentin Tarantino buffs, his bloody, Academy Award-winning 2013 feature Django Unchained, which arrives on the 25th.
You'll also be able to stream Angel Has Fallen, the third entry in the so-so Fallen franchise. This installment follows agent Mike Banning, played by Gerard Butler, after he's framed for an assassination attempt on the U.S. president. If you've seen either of the other two Fallen movies, you pretty much know what to expect. Look for that on April 4.
Despite having several oldies but goodies populating this month's list of action and adventure releases, Netflix is clearly banking on one new film to be its number one streaming hit of spring 2020. That's the Joe and Anthony Russo-produced, Chris Hemsworth-led film Extraction, which follows a fearless black market mercenary's rescue of an imprisoned crime lord's son. Look for that to drop on April 24th.
