New Releases on Netflix UK (April 20th, 2018)

Published on EST

We’re heading towards the end of April already, time is ticking and the year is flying past. We’ve been hit with spells of good weather in the UK and we are hopeful that this will continue into the weekend. However, if you’ve got spare time on your hands then you’ll likely be wanting to watch something on Netflix. This week, 20th April 2018, there’s been a total of 56 new titles added to Netflix UK and this includes 27 new movies, 20 new TV series, five new documentaries and four new comedy specials. As usual, we’re going to recommend our top three picks that we think you should watch.

Our first pick of the week is Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016). We all know the adventures of Alice and all the crazy people and creatures she meets along the way, but not everyone may have seen the sequel. Alice finds a magical looking glass that transports her back to Wonderland and what she comes across is madder than she first believed. The Mad Hatter is one of the most loved characters and this time, the focus is on saving him. Alice travels back through time to wade through the past in attempt to save the Hatter. The film stars many of our favourite actors including Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Matt Lucas and Helena Bonham Carter along with her co-star from Harry Potter, Rhys Ifans. Not forgetting Alan Rickman, whose last role in a film was the Caterpillar in Alice Through the Looking Glass.

High school is full of all kinds of dramas and changes – it’s when you discover so much about yourself that you didn’t already know, right? This teen comedy focuses on four best friends who have to deal with many changes in their last two weeks of high school. They do ‘normal’ things, like go to parties, get drunk and get their hearts broken. Not forgetting smoking a whole tonne of weed. Those of you who are Lucy Hale fans (for her impressive performance as Aria Montgomery in Pretty Little Liars will want to give this film a go considering that she plays one of the main characters. So, what will happen next for the unforgettable foursome?

Everyone has a goal in life, whether it big or small. Everyone loves something, whether it’s someone else, money, or a job. Detective Mario Conde in Four Seasons in Havana (2016) digs through the dirty, the greed and the darkness in the city. This Netflix Original is about one man who likes the ladies, is in the business of solving crime and uncovers truths that others couldn’t. Reviewers have commended the series for the great scenery of Havana as well as Jorge Perugorriá’s role as the main character. Corruption is everywhere – you just have to know where to look. Season one of Four Seasons in Havana is available to watch on Netflix UK.
