What’s leaving Netflix UK in April / May 2018?
VOD News | On 16, Apr 2018
The sun may be coming out to play once more, but before the weather draws you outside, Netflix has several burning reasons to stay indoors for one more day – a whole bunch of classics departing the streaming service before the end of the moth, from The Martian and Spotlight to Inherent Vice and even The Shawshank Redemption.
This is your last chance to stream the following on Netflix UK:
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials – 17th April
This high-profile sequel sees the young adult franchise continue, as our kids bust out of the maze – but still have far more sinister things to run from.
American Sniper – 18th April
Clint Eastwood’s Oscar-nominated film about the most lethal sniper in US history features gripping action scenes, a provocative focus on a gun-loving hero and a stellar turn from Bradley Cooper.
Focus – 18th April
Will Smith and Margot Robbie’s chemistry sparks in this stylish, if shallow, con artist thriller.
Inherent Vice – 18th April
A stoner crime comedy drama by Paul Thomas Anderson? Breathe it in.
Jupiter Ascending – 18th April
A young woman discovers her destiny as an heiress of intergalactic nobility in The Wachowskis’ visually stunning sci-fi epic.
The Shawshank Redemption – 22nd April
Wrongly convicted, Andy Dufresne is sentenced to two life terms in Maine’s Shawshank prison. He learns how to get by in the brutal confines of prison while earning the respect of his fellow inmates, most notably lifer Red. Based on the Stephen King novella of the same name and starring Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman, this stirring drama is one of the best films of the last 30 years.
The Martian – 24th April
Ridley Scott’s sci-fi, starring Matt Damon as a scientist who is accidentally left stranded on Mars, is a witty, funny, inspiring tale of survival – and a rare example of blockbuster filmmaking that is happy simply to celebrate smart people being smart.
Spotlight – 28th April
This Oscar-winning drama about the Boston Globe’s investigation into childhood abuse at the hands of Catholic priests in the early 2000s is understated, gripping, important viewing.
RuPaul’s Drag Race: Season 2 to 7 – 30th April
Gentlemen, stop your engines and have a moment’s silence for the six classic seasons of the affirming, unique reality competition sashay away from Netflix UK.
