With April weather coming in hot, we admit we’ve been searching for more reasons to stay in instead. The new lineup of Netflix releases certainly helps build the case. For the rest who find the thought of holing up with a Netflix marathon just appealing, keep reading. This roundup is for you.


In April, several cult classics joining the roster: The original 1989 Pet Sematary flick is here; so are Ghost starring Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore, and Sophie’s Choice, the 1982 novel-turned-film that earned Meryl Streep her first Best Actress win at the Oscars. For those gearing up for Avengers: Endgame, meanwhile, there are seven full-length Marvel movies that, when put together, can serve as great MCU refresher before hitting the cinemas on the 24th.
