Movies To Look Out For This April!
By Khushi Bhatt
Without Remorse (Amazon Prime Video)—April 30
- Michael B. Jordan is arguably Hollywood’s hottest young star. Taylor Sheridan, who was hired to do a script rewrite, is arguably Hollywood’s hottest screenwriter. Meanwhile, Tom Clancy’s best-selling novels have long-fed both the big and small screens. Put ’em all together and you have the highly anticipated new action-thriller Without Remorse, which Paramount Pictures sold off to Amazon during the pandemic. Paramount’s original hope was that Without Remorse could spark a new action franchise with Jordan at its center as John Clark. We’ll find out soon enough if that’ll be the case.
Thunder Force (Netflix April 9)
- The superhero future is female … at least on Netflix. Melissa McCarthy returns to the action-comedy genre she has achieved success in with hits like Spy and The Heat. This time, she teams up with Octavia Spencer, whose comedic chops are often overlooked. They play estranged best friends, reunite when scientist Emily Stanton (Octavia Spencer) accidentally bestows superpowers on Lydia (Melissa McCarthy). They form a superhero duo called Thunder Force in order to save Chicago from the villainous plans of The King (Bobby Cannavale).
Shadow and Bone (Netflix April 23)
- Leigh Bardugo’s best-selling Grishaverse novels come to life in Netflix’s adaptation. Shadow and Bone is the latest fantasy epic that hopes to capture some of the Game of Thrones audience. Orphan Alina Starkov (Jessie Mei Lin) has recently discovered an extraordinary power that could set her country free from the terrors of the Shadow Fold. Alina goes to train with the magical elite soldiers known as Grisha but soon discovers that her new world is just as dangerous as the Fold.
