What’s new on Amazon Prime Video in April 2020

If you’re looking to kill some time indoors and want to catch up on some movies or TV, you’re in luck. Amazon Prime Video regularly adds fresh content, giving subscribers plenty of new and interesting things to watch each month. If you’re a streaming enthusiast and want to make use of that new Amazon Fire TV, here’s the best of what’s new on Amazon Prime Video in April.

A new Amazon original seriesTales from the Loop is inspired by the futuristic, science-fiction paintings of Swedish artist and designer Simon Stålenhag. The show centers on the people who live about the “Loop,” a machine built to unlock and examine the mysteries of the universe. The townspeople embark on mind-bending adventures like a trip to the grocery store, constantly blending reality and science fiction.

Will Smith delivers one of his best performances in I Am Legend, a post-apocalyptic tale about a man who has lost everyone he loved but continues moving on despite, by all appearances, being the last man on Earth. With his trusty canine companion, Robert Neville treks through a devastated New York City, searching for any survivors from a vicious plague, all while using his own immune blood to try and develop a cure. The plague, however, doesn’t kill people. It turns humans and animals alike into bloodthirsty, zombie-like creatures who cannot endure sunlight. Between Smith’s outstanding dramatic performance and some genuine horror, I Am Legend is a gripping couple of hours, even if the ending doesn’t quite stick the landing.

April 10 sees the debut of Amazon’s original, modern adaptation of Victor Hugo’s seminal French Revolution novel, Les Misérables.

In addition to originals, Amazon Prime will also welcome a massive collection of James Bond films to the library in April. All of them are pre-Daniel Craig, but include such classics as GoldfingerLive and Let DieGoldeneye, and many, many more. Bond marathon, anyone? Other highlights include Robert Eggers’ 2019 psychological horror film The Lighthouse, starring Willem Defoe and Robert Pattinson, and ’80s classic Footloose, starring Kevin Bacon.
