HOT NEW RELEASES ON AMAZON PRIME IN APRIL 2021
THE MAURITANIAN – Hot New Releases on Amazon Prime in April 2021
9/11 altered world history and impacted people’s lives across the world. Countless lives were lost, but countless were also wrongly accused and a whole community prejudiced. Among the hot new releases on Amazon Prime in April 2021, The Mauritanian is a legal drama that explores the consequences that were borne from those prejudices.
The movie follows the inspiring true story of Mohamedou Ould Slahi’s fight for freedom after being detained and imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay detention camp without charge by the U.S. Government for years. Alone and afraid, Slahi finds allies in defense attorney Nancy Hollander and her associate Teri Duncan. Together, they battle the U.S. government in a desperate fight for justice that tests their commitment to the law and their client at every turn. Their controversial advocacy, along with evidence uncovered by a formidable military prosecutor, Lt. Colonel Stuart Couch, uncovers a shocking truth and far reaching conspiracy, which ultimately proves that the human spirit cannot be locked up.
The film is based on the 2015 best selling memoir Guantánamo Diary by Mohamedou Ould Salahi, a true story of Salahi’s experience. He was being held for fourteen years without charge in the Guantanamo Bay detention camp, on suspicion of being behind the 9/11 attacks.
The film stars Tahar Rahim, Benedict Cumberbatch and Shailene Woodley in the lead roles and is directed by Kevin Macdonald.
SOUND OF METAL – Hot New Releases on Amazon Prime in April 2021
Hailed by both critics and audiences alike as one of the best movies of 2020, this critically acclaimed movie is finally making its way into the list of hot new releases on Amazon Prime in April 2021. It is an immersive drama that tells the story of a punk-metal drummer who loses his hearing.
During a series of adrenaline-fueled one-night gigs, itinerant punk-metal drummer Ruben (Riz Ahmed) begins to experience intermittent hearing loss. When a specialist tells him his condition will rapidly worsen, he thinks his music career — and with it his life — is over. His bandmate and girlfriend Lou (Olivia Cooke) checks the recovering heroin addict into a secluded sober house for the deaf in hopes it will prevent a relapse and help him learn to adapt to his new situation. But after being welcomed into a community that accepts him just as he is, Ruben has to choose between his equilibrium and the drive to reclaim the life he once knew.
Utilizing startling, innovative sound design techniques, the movie is directed and co-written by Darius Marder who takes the audiences inside Ruben’s experience to vividly recreate his journey into a rarely examined world. This film among the new releases on Amazon Prime in April 2021 received rave reviews, with praise for the performances of Riz Ahmed and Paul Raci, who were in the lead and supporting roles respectively. Additional cast includes Olivia Cooke, Lauren Ridloff and Mathieu Amalric.

THEM – Hot New Releases on Amazon Prime in April 2021
Taking a dig at racism in America through a narrative driven by spine chilling horror, next in this list of hot new releases on Amazon Prime in April 2021, we have “Them”. Created by Little Marvin, “Them: Covenant” is slated to be the first season in a highly anticipated limited horror anthology series.
“Them” is a story that explores terror in America. It centers on a Black family, The Emorys, in the 1950s who moves from rural North Carolina to an all-white Los Angeles neighborhood of Compton during the period known as The Great Migration. Needless to say, their neighbors are not happy that they’re there. They begin to terrorize them in order to get them to go back to where they came from. All the while, there are also malicious supernatural entities that also don’t want them there.
The family’s idyllic home thus becomes ground zero where malevolent forces — next-door and otherworldly — threaten to taunt, ravage and destroy them. The message is clear: The Emorys aren’t safe in Compton.
The dialogue-free teaser trailer offers a glimpse into the unnerving new neighborhood as well as a few of the hostile forces within, including hordes of “Stepford Wives” gathered around a house and a surprise guest at the very end.
The cast includes Deborah Ayorinde, Ashley Thomas, Shahadi Wright, Melody Hurd, Alison Pill, Christopher Heyerdahl, Ryan Kwanten, Anika Noni Rose and many others.
PALM SPRINGS – Hot New Releases on Amazon Prime in April 2021
Another perfect addition to the list of hot new releases on Amazon Prime in April 2021 is “Palm Springs”. A funny spin on the same concept as the movie Groundhog Day, this is sure to make for a fun watch. The time loop comedy movie premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last year to huge acclaim. It initially racked-up a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with praise for the performances and use of the concept.
The two main protagonists, Nyles and Sarah, meet at a wedding in Palm Springs, and soon find themselves trapped in a time loop. No matter what they do, every morning they wake up in Palm Springs living the same day over and over again. They develop a budding romance as they try to figure out a solution to this problem and also find out what it means to live through a perfect day.
Strong performances by the cast and a refreshingly original concept make Palm Springs a romcom that will make you laugh out loud often and overall a very interesting and thought-provoking experience. The movie is directed by Max Barbakow in his feature film debut and stars Andy Samberg, Cristin Milioti, J.K. Simmons, Peter Gallagher and Meredith Hagner.
WITHOUT REMORSE – Hot New Releases on Amazon Prime in April 2021
If you are a veteran fan of the Jack Ryan novel series, I am sure you have come across its equally popular spin off novel as well. It’s fine even if you haven’t, because the platform is now bringing you its live adaptation among the hot new releases on Amazon Prime in April 2021.
Based on the 1993 thriller novel of the same name by Tom Clancy, Without Remorse tells the explosive origin story of action hero John Clark – one of the most popular characters in the Jack Ryan universe. It follows the elite Navy SEAL as he tries to avert an all-out war between the United States and Russia while simultaneously tracking down the operatives that killed his family.
When a squad of Russian soldiers kills his family in retaliation for his role in a top-secret op, Sr. Chief John Kelly pursues the assassins at all costs. Joining forces with a fellow SEAL Karen Greer and a shadowy CIA agent, Robert Ritter, Kelly’s mission unwittingly exposes a covert plot that threatens to engulf the U.S. and Russia in an all-out war. Torn between personal honor and loyalty to his country, Kelly must fight his enemies without remorse if he hopes to avert disaster and reveal the powerful figures behind the conspiracy.
Directed by Stefano Sollima and written by Taylor Sheridan and Will Staples, the film stars Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell, Jodie Turner-Smith, Luke Mitchell, Jack Kesy, Brett Gelman, Colman Domingo and Guy Pearce.
THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL – Hot New Releases on Amazon Prime in April 2021
Anne Boleyn’s story is well-known; the queen of England, and second wife of Henry VIII, was beheaded after being charged with treason, incest and adultery. But her sister, Mary, has largely been a footnote in history. However, a fictionalized Mary Boleyn is the central character in The Other Boleyn Girl, which brings to light the unknown aspects to her life. It is based on Philippa Gregory’s 2001 best-selling novel of the same name, so the accuracy is questionable at best since source material is unreliable.
The Other Boleyn Girl is a fictionalised account of the lives of 16th-century aristocrats Mary Boleyn, one-time mistress of King Henry VIII, and her sister, Anne, who became the monarch’s ill-fated second wife.
King Henry VIII lacks an heir. Seeing this as an opportunity for personal gain, the Duke of Norfolk and Sir Thomas Boleyn persuade Thomas’ daughter Anne to seduce the king. But Henry falls in love with Anne’s sister, Mary, instead. When Mary becomes pregnant, she’s confined to bed, and charged with Anne keeping the king from straying – but the plan backfires when Anne seeks the king’s affections for herself.
Released in 2008, the movie is directed by Justin Chadwich and stars Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Eric Bana and Kristin Scott Thomas. If you like a good soap opera, you’ll definitely enjoy this new releases on Amazon Prime in April 2021!
