Where: HBO Max
Release date: April 11

Set in Victorian London, this HBO Max series explores a supernatural event that gives certain people — mostly women — abnormal abilities, some wondrous, some disturbing.

Wahl Street

Where: HBO Max

This HBO Max docuseries follows the entrepreneurial and personal life of actor Mark Wahlberg.

Big Shot

Where: Disney Plus
Release date: April 16

John Stamos stars in this new Disney Plus original series with an all too familiar sports drama narrative. A celebrated coach (Stamos) from the National Collegiate Athletic Association finds himself coaching an all-girls high school basketball team that’s not very welcoming of his professional approach. But as it usually goes with such a storyline, he forms a deep bond with his team members, eventually leading them to glory. If you’re wondering what to stream with the family this month, Big Shot might be a good title to catch.

Sasquatch

Where: Hulu
Release date: April 20

You can probably tell from its name that this streaming title has something to do with the Bigfoot folklore. If so, you’re partially right. This upcoming Hulu docuseries by the Duplass Brothers introduces us to investigative journalist David Holthouse as he looks into three grisly murders in Northern California. Three men were torn apart in the region in 1993, leading to theories that the ape-like creature was to blame. Holthouse’s probe, however, leads him to the Emerald Triangle, famous for producing Cannabis plants. Could there be a connection between the murders, the weed haven, and Sasquatch?

Mortal Kombat

Where: HBO Max
Release date: April 23

A live-action adaptation of NetherRealm’s cult fighting game, Mortal Kombat is coming to HBO Max in late April after being delayed by a week. It’ll follow the story of MMA fighter Cole Young (Lewis Tan), who gets entrenched in a tournament to defend Earth. He is an original character created for the movie, but gaming enthusiasts will be happy to know that there are many other classic Mortal Kombat characters also present in the movie, including Sonya Blade (Jessica McNamee), Liu Kang (Ludi Lin), Kano (Josh Lawson), Jax Briggs (Mehcad Brooks), Raiden (Tadanobu Asano), and more. That said, the trailer for the film looks absolutely smashing, so we’re pretty pepped-up for this one.

Hulu’s popular dystopian drama is back for round four this April. If you’re familiar with the story of The Handmaid’s Tale, you would be glad to know that this season we might actually see a proper revolution arise against Gilead. Get ready for June Osborne and her army of handmaids.


Things Heard & Seen

Where: Netflix
Release date: April 29

A Netflix horror-thriller with Amanda Seyfried in the lead, Things Heard & Seen seems to present a conventional plot — a young couple moves to a big old house in a quaint new town only to discover that it’s haunted by a tragedy from the past. However, the film’s synopsis teases a “sinister secret” in the couple’s marriage that just might make things interesting.
