New to Prime Video in April

April premieres include global spy thriller Citadelanother landmark Sir David Attenborough series, the fifth and final season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and Rachel Weisz as twin gynaecologists who perform ethically questionable procedures on infertile women in Dead Ringers.

Eight years ago, Citadel fell. The independent global spy agency—tasked to uphold the safety and security of all people—was destroyed by operatives of Manticore, a powerful syndicate manipulating the world from the shadows. With Citadel’s fall, elite agents Mason Kane (Richard Madden) and Nadia Sinh (Priyanka Chopra Jonas) had their memories wiped as they narrowly escaped with their lives. They’ve remained hidden ever since, building new lives under new identities, unaware of their pasts. Until one night, when Mason is tracked down by his former Citadel colleague, Bernard Orlick (Stanley Tucci), who desperately needs his help to prevent Manticore from establishing a new world order. Mason seeks out his former partner, Nadia, and the two spies embark on a mission that takes them around the world in an effort to stop Manticore, all while contending with a relationship built on secrets, lies, and a dangerous-yet-undying love. 

This modern take on David Cronenberg’s 1988 thriller stars Rachel Weisz as Elliot and Beverly Mantle, twins who share everything: drugs, lovers, and an unapologetic desire to do whatever it takes — including pushing the boundaries on medical ethics — to challenge antiquated practices and bring women’s health care to the forefront.

In Wild Isles, Sir David Attenborough celebrates the wonders of Britain and Ireland, revealing the surprising and dramatic habitats that exist. Filmed over three years, the five-part series investigates how the woodland, grassland, freshwater and ocean habitats support wildlife of all kinds. It uses the latest technology to capture dramatic and new behaviour, from battling butterflies to mighty killer whales on the hunt. With intricately connected species relying on habitats, and one another, for survival, it asks what can be done to protect them and the delicate ecosystems that remain.

After burning bridges and being cut from tour, Midge Maisel persisted through Season Four, rebuilding her career and reputation. The final moments of the season culminated with Midge leaving Carnegie Hall reinvigorated and ready to weather any blizzard. After an epiphany in front of The Gordon Ford Show’s snowy billboard, Midge is ready to “Go forward” and fight for her ascent to stardom—equipped with her quick wit and sharp tongue, and nothing else to lose. In the fifth and final season, Midge finds herself closer than ever to the success she’s dreamed of, only to discover that closer than ever is still so far away.

A high-stakes, gritty,  hard-hitting action crime movie about a group of childhood friends who each have to navigate destiny, growing up on the bustling streets and neighbourhood of Isale Eko, Lagos. We’re told to expect elaborate set pieces, action scenes and engaging dialogue, balanced by a high-octane pace and emotionally grounded storytelling. 

Four-part docuseries that follows J.R. Smith, a 19-year-old NBA player who has to redefine his life and career when suddenly finds himself without a team. That means getting a college education and pursuing a new athletic passion as a member of the Men’s Golf Team at North Carolina A&T, the nation’s largest Historically Black University.

Alex Borstein: Corsets & Clown Suits is a deeply personal and wildly fictitious account of one woman’s attempt to “f*** with perception”. This night of comedy, music, and waxing rhapsodic is equal parts provocative and whimsical. Borstein’s self-penned performance showcases her captivating form of storytelling with the help of her muse and maestro, Barcelona-native musicians Eric Mills and Salva Rey, and was filmed at The Wolford Theatre, the fictional burlesque club from S4 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. 

This extraordinary true story of faith and survival follows passenger Doug White’s (Dennis Quaid) on a harrowing journey to safely land a plane and save his entire family after their pilot dies unexpectedly mid-flight.

Lizzy Hoo looks back on father-daughter trips to Malaysia (one when she was four-years-old and a returning trip in her thirties), skydiving to her mum’s 60th, one of her brother’s backyard trout-farming dreams, and her other brother’s quest to become a famous YouTube travel vlogger.

Chronicles the inner workings of an American jury trial through the eyes of one particular juror, Ronald Gladden. What Gladden doesn’t know is that the entire case is fake, everyone except him is an actor, including James Marsden, and everything that happens — inside the courtroom and out — is carefully planned. 

Judy Blume Forever: After decades of Judy Blume’s frankness about puberty and sex landing her in controversy, the author candidly shares her own coming-of-age story, from a fearful, imaginative child to storytelling pioneer who elevated the physical and emotional lives of kids and teens, to banned writer who continues to fight back against censorship today.
