At last, spring has arrived, bringing a fresh collection of films and TV series. As we pack away our cozy blankets, the hunt for the next engaging content to enjoy from our sofas continues. But with an overwhelming number of streaming platforms and a vast array of content to sift through, choosing what to watch can often seem like the most challenging part. Fear not; we’re here to guide you through every new original movie landing on Netflix in April 2023. We aim to keep this list as varied as possible to cater to all tastes. It shouldn’t be too difficult, given that Netflix’s April 2023 lineup boasts top-notch original movies ranging from romantic comedies and quirky humor to the much-awaited comeback of popular franchises.
Netflix has a knack for delving into the world of mythical creatures from various global perspectives, as seen in shows like Troll and Viking Wolf. They’re hoping to replicate this success with their new project, Chupa. This Mexican-set story revolves around a 13-year-old boy named Alex (played by Evan Whitten), who forms an unlikely friendship with a tiny chupacabra puppy. Chupacabras, legendary creatures from Latin America, are often held responsible for mysterious livestock deaths on farms. However, Chupa aims to transform this fearsome creature into a cuddly companion. As Alex builds a deep bond with his new furry friend, he greatly safeguards it. We’re absolute fans of creative creature design, and the Spielberg-esque vibe of the movie suggests that Chupa is set to be an enjoyable family adventure.
2. Oh Belinda
Hailing from Turkey, Oh Belinda is set to put a fresh twist on the much-loved Freaky Friday concept. The film features a renowned actress (played by Neslihan Atagül) who signs up for a shampoo commercial. But things take a bizarre turn when she uses the product and suddenly finds herself in the bathroom of her character, Handan – a married mother of two. Now, she must convince those around her that she’s not the woman they believe her to be, all while wondering if her character has been enjoying her usual glamorous lifestyle. This quirky premise will surely delight viewers seeking their next dose of offbeat comedy.
3. The Last Kingdom: Seven Kings Must Die
Last year, the fifth and concluding season of The Last Kingdom graced Netflix, seemingly wrapping up the saga of Uhtred of Bebbanburg (portrayed by Alexander Dreymon). Yet, Uhtred’s tale is set to continue with The Last Kingdom: Seven Kings Must Die. This two-hour movie aims to tie up any remaining loose threads and provide fans a fitting goodbye to their beloved historical drama. After King Edward’s demise, Seven Kings Must Die delves into the power struggles among potential successors. Uhtred’s aspiration for a united England could potentially jeopardize the safety of those he holds dear. Given how Luther: Fallen Sun demonstrated last month that a series can find new life in the film even after cancellation, fans of The Last Kingdom should eagerly anticipate Seven Kings Must Die.
4. Longest Third Date
The COVID-19 pandemic turned our lives into a topsy-turvy, compelling us to reflect on the significance of human relationships for our well-being.

Consequently, Robertson and Le found themselves unable to return home, resulting in the most extended third date anyone could imagine. This is the intriguing premise of Longest Third Date, a new documentary that chronicles the couple’s extraordinary journey, demonstrating that not all experiences during the pandemic were gloomy.
