Welcome to the first new release post in a while where we’ve got quite a number of new releases to catch up on. Here’s everything new on Netflix for April 22nd, 2021. 

If you missed our Monday roundup of new releases head back as you missed a cracking couple of movies.

Tomorrow’s big new release is Shadow & Bone which we’re expecting to light the world on fire. Today is your last chance to watch Disney Channel’s Liv and Maddie before it departs for Disney+.

Just before we dive into the new releases, we’re rolling out some changes to our what’s new on Netflix hub this week and next with new features such as our top picks highlighted as well as more information to help you decide your next watch.

Now let’s get into some of the new releases.

Genre: Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller
Director: Joe Penna

We don’t quite know why sci-fi thrillers are so controversial when it comes to audience and critics’ reviews but this new thriller headlined by Kendrick and Collette certainly is splitting opinions.

Here’s what you can expect from the new space adventure:

“A three-person crew on a mission to Mars faces an impossible choice when an unplanned passenger jeopardizes the lives of everyone on board.”

Life in Color with David Attenborough (Season 1)

Not dividing opinions is this BBC co-production narrated by the legend that is David Attenborough. Throughout this series you’ll get to find out how color plays a big role in wildlife with absolutely stunning shots and sounds from around the world.
