New Netflix April Full List: ‘The Get Down 2,’ ‘Hot Girls Wanted,’ ‘Sand Castle’

From the origins of hip-hop in the 1970s to the hazards of internet porn in 2017, the new Netflix lineup for April offers an unusually rich motherlode of movies, television series, and Netflix originals that should serve up at least something for almost every taste.

Highlighting the lineup, making its debut on on April 7, will be the second installment in the first season of The Get Down, the much-hyped series from Australian director Baz Luhrmann dramatizing the early era of hip-hop music and, perhaps more importantly, hip-hop culture in New York City back in the 1970s.

When the first part of The Get Down premiered on Netflix last year, the abbreviated series ran six episodes. But while Part Two had been announced as a seven-episode installment, as it turns out, Luhrmann squeezed the story into just five hourlong episodes — though the season finale runs an extended 75 minutes.

“For us, it was really like a long-play movie. We were particularly concerned with making sure, with the musical numbers and density of each episode, that we weren’t finding ourselves ‘padding’ in material for the sake of a making a number,” Luhrmann explained. “Ultimately, Netflix and Sony agreed we should make the number of episodes that we all felt best suited the length of the show and gave us the best ending.”

In another continuation of a previous project, the acclaimed independent documentary feature from producer Rashida Jones Hot Girls Wanted now becomes a six-episode Netflix documentary series, with the full title Hot Girls Wanted: Turned On.

Like the 2015 feature film, the new Netflix series explores how the easy availability of online pornography has affected the lives of teenagers — as well as adults — in America and takes an often-disturbing look behind the scenes of the “amateur” porn industry. The series also covers how the intersection of sex and technology has affected daily life, exploring the impact of “dating” apps such as Tindr and Bumble.

Watch the Netflix trailer for Hot Girls Wanted: Turned On in the following video (be warned, the video could contain mature content). The series goes online April 21.

Also on April 21, the Netflix original movie Sand Castle explores the impact of the Iraq War on the soldiers who to only fought the battles, but also tried to carry out humanitarian projects in the country ripped apart by the United States invasion. The dramatic film stars Nicholas Hoult and Henry “Superman” Cavill.
