Netflix are set to have a typically busy week, with the streamer releasing a wide range of movies, television shows, and other content over the next few days. Some of the highlights include original film Thunder Force, as well as documentary This is a Robbery: The World’s Biggest Art Heist, and new Swedish thriller series Snabba Cash. What, then, do we have to look forward to on the platform between April 5th and April 11th?
Arguably the most notable release is the aforementioned Thunder Force, which sees Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer team up as a super-powered duo against Bobby Cannavale’s The King. Spencer plays a scientist who invents a method for granting powers to ordinary people, but accidentally gives them to best friend Lydia (McCarthy). Directed by Ben Falcone in another collaboration with his wife Melissa, this one looks to be a fun action-comedy.
By comparison, This is a Robbery is a four-part docuseries that deals with the theft of thirteen masterpieces from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, a case that remains unsolved after 31 years. Filmmaking brothers Colin and Nick Barnicle are behind the production, which will delve into the mysteries of one of the most dramatic heists of all time. In addition, Snabba Cash is a long-form adaptation of an organized crime story previously told in a novel and movie series.
Also coming to the service is Coded Bias, a documentary exploring racial bias in face recognition algorithms, while there will be a fresh Dolly Parton special, Netflix anime The Way of the Househusband, comedy The Stand-In, and exclusive pictures from Turkey (Have You Ever Seen Fireflies?) and South Korea (Night in Paradise).
