New Movies And Shows On Netflix, And What's Leaving April 2020

"The Matrix" trilogy, "The Hangover" and "Taxi Driver" join the streaming service.

Netflix adds three dozen movies to its library on April 1. You’d be a fool (see what we did there?) not to check out the list.

The films joining Netflix include “The Hangover,” “Minority Report,” “The Death of Stalin” and “Taxi Driver.” Both the “Lethal Weapon” and “The Matrix” film series also become available the first of the month.

I’m most excited about Netflix’s addition of “The Social Network,” directed by David Fincher and written by Aaron Sorkin. I haven’t watched it since it debuted in 2010, and I’m looking forward to revisiting this movie that stars not one but two Armie Hammers.

Netflix adds quite a few Originals throughout the month, as well. A couple of notable shows include the fourth season of the baking program “Nailed It!” and the second season of Ricky Gervais’ “After Life.”

Perhaps something will surprise me, but looking at the lineup right now, Netflix appears to have a lackluster month for Originals.

Many movies will leave the service at the end of April, including “GoodFellas” and “Space Jam.” The latter has been in Netflix’s new Top 10 list of popularity since it joined the service this month.

See below for the full list of arrivals and departures.
