What’s New on Amazon Prime: April 2018.

Amazon adds a Spike Lee exclusive as well as several recent indie darlings to its movie releases in April.

Pass Over, Spike Lee, Amazon Prime April 2018Amazon is set to make a big splash this month in theaters with its dark thriller, You Were Never Really Here.  On the home market, things are a little less exciting in April.  What was shaping up to be a quiet month got a last minute jolt when Amazon announced a deal to stream Pass Over, the latest effort by director Spike Lee.  For other original content, the detective drama Bosch is back for a fourth season and Amazon has two football docu-dramas that are, ahem, past their prime.

Things look much better on the movie release schedule listings, were a solid line up hits the platform this month.  Much like Hulu, the focus seems to be on classic dramas (Taxi Driver, Philadelphia, Steel Magnolias) and iconic comedies (Meatballs, Throw Momma from the Train, The Replacements).  Heck, we even get Billy Zane’s big purple action flick, The Phantom!  In case those don’t tickle you, two high profile exclusives hit Amazon:  Oscar nominated The Florida Project and one of my favorites from 2017, The Killing of a Sacred Deer.

That’s right, Billy, we’re both pissed you didn’t make the “It Came From the Comics” list!
