Happy April, party people! No this is no April fools joke (that was yesterday anyways), it is the first weekend of a brand-new month. And by now you know the drill: the start of a new month ushers in a slew of top-notch movies and tv shows on all of your streaming platforms. But do not get distracted by the big drop of titles that happened yesterday, because the new movies and shows out this weekend are begging for attention as well. Whether you’re sifting through options on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, or all of the above, hitting up the freshest titles is always the best way to start your 48-hour binge-fest. But between yesterday’s dump and this weekend’s newest features, where is one to start? Here’s our take on what to watch this weekend and where to stream it.

New Movies and Shows to Stream This Weekend:  Concrete Cowboy, WeWork: Or the Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn and Unhinged

Let’s start with the newest titles on streaming— the ones out this weekend— shall we? New on Netflix is Concrete Cowboy, the drama starring Idris Elba and Caleb McLaughlin, as well as the new British series The Serpent. Over on Hulu, another film will open your eyes to one of the biggest boom and busts of the last five years: the original documentary about WeWork. And if you are in the mood for a more terrifying action-thriller, be sure to check out Russell Crowe’s flick Unhinged over on Amazon Prime Video. Like we said, there are so many more great movies and shows like these available to check out this weekend! And to get started, check out some highlights from the great movies and shows now streaming we’ve listed below:

New on Netflix April 2: Concrete Cowboy



Idris Elba and Stranger Things’ Caleb McLaughlin star in Concrete Cowboy, the original movie that is new on Netflix this weekend. This coming-of-age story centers on a teenage boy named Cole who is sent to live with his father (Elba) in Philadelphia. And while Cole is interested in partaking in some shady business going on around the neighborhood, his father endeavors to teach him the value of hard work and true community through the Fletcher Street riding community. Based on the real non-profit riding club working to preserve the tradition of the Black urban cowboy, Concrete Cowboy is a heartfelt father-son drama that is nothing like your typical cookie-cutter Netflix-original. So check it, and the other top movies new on Netflix this month out now.

New on Hulu April 2: WeWork: Or the Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn

This insane documentary that is new on Hulu this weekend explores the rise and fall of one of the biggest corporate flops in recent history: WeWork, and its equally-floppy founder, Adam Neumann. Titled WeWork: Or the Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn, the Hulu-original takes an in-depth look at the small, community-centric and holistic co-working venture that sky-rocketed into unicorn investment territory— and uncovers what was really going on behind the scenes. Featuring fascinating interviews with people ranging from expert journalists to former employees, WeWork is an eye-opening documentary that will capture the attention of business savants and curious minds alike.

New on Amazon Prime Video April 2: Unhinged

New on Amazon Prime Video this weekend is Unhinged, the action-thriller that will make you reconsider acting on your road rage ever again. It all centers on a frustrated single mother who beeps her horn at a fellow driver (Russell Crowe) during rush-hour traffic. We’ve all done it before, right? But what should have resulted in a simple exchange of words soon turns into a mother’s worst nightmare as she realizes the mysterious man with which she had this altercation is now following her and her son in his truck— with a sinister plan for revenge in mind. Like we said, you’ll reconsider honking your horn at another driver ever agin after checking out Unhinged, new on Amazon Prime Video this weekend.
