Our top picks for April

Extraction

Marvel franchise actor Chris Hemsworth plays a black-market mercenary recruited to rescue the kidnapped son of an international crime lord in this Netflix Original thriller. Hemsworth is joined by Stranger Things and fellow Marvel Cinematic Universe (via Black Widow) actor David Harbour in the cast of the film, which is based on a script penned by veteran MCU director Joe Russo (Avengers: Endgame).

The Last Kids on Earth: Book 2

The second chapter of this animated saga picks up where the previous installment left off: With 13-year-old Jack and some of his fellow classmates attempting to survive in a post-apocalyptic world filled with monsters, zombies, and all manner of supernatural threats. Based on the hit children’s book series by Max Brallier, the series features a cast of young voice actors, as well as the voices of Mark Hamill, Keith David, Bruce Campbell, and Rosario Dawson.
