Best New Movies on Netflix in April 2023

Raise your hand if you love movies! Our hand is in the air too and so we’re always excited to see what Netflix has in store. Here are some of the latest and greatest titles to hit their ever-expanding library.

Hunger – April 8

Those with an appetite for culinary thrillers will surely be satiated by this new one out of Thailand. It follows a young and talented cook (Chutimon Chuengcharoensukying) from her family’s small noodle shop into the intense and often ridiculous world of fine dining. Now working under a ruthless chef (Nopachai Chaiyanam), she’s pushed to her very limits and beyond. Have you seen it all before? Probably. Should you watch it anyway? Definitely!

Director: Sittisiri Mongkolsiri
Distributed by: Netflix

Seven Kings Must Die – April 14

The acclaimed historical action series “The Last Kingdom” will both continue and conclude with this hotly anticipated feature film. It goes down in the aftermath of King Edward’s death and follows Uhtred of Bebbanburg (Alexander Dreymon) and his peers on an epic adventure across a fraught and violent landscape.

A Tourist’s Guide to Love – April 21

We love ourselves a solid rom-com and this upcoming Netflix Original appears to fit the bill. On assignment in Vietnam, a travel executive (Rachel Leigh Cook) gets whisked away by a local tour guide (Scott Ly) on an exciting and romantic adventure. It will probably be every bit as sappy as the title would suggest but sometimes that’s exactly what the doctor ordered.

Initial release: 21 April 2023
Director: Steven Tsuchida

Chokehold – April 21

We don’t know much about this upcoming Turkish thriller and that’s arguably why we’re so eager to see it. What we can tell you is that it centers around a modern couple from Istanbul, who move to the Aegean coast for a new lease on life, only to piss off various locals. Here’s hoping it delivers on the juicy premise.

Director: Onur Saylak
Writer: Hakan Gunday
Cast: Kivanç Tatlitug, Funda Eryigit, Gürgen Öz

Longest Third Date – April 18

After meeting on Hinge, romantic couple Matt and Khani flew to Costa Rica and found themselves stuck there during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. So goes the longest third date in history, which provides the subject matter for this Netflix Original documentary.

Chimp Empire – April 19

From the director of “My Octopus Teacher” and narrator Mahershala Ali comes this gripping docu-series about the life of modern chimpanzees.
