Today is April 1st. For most of the world, today means sidestepping terrible April's Fools gags. But for Netflix subscribers, it means a whole rake of new programming to navigate. The first of the month is always a big day in the Netflix universe, but today is something else entirely. Just as the good weather arrives, the world's favourite streaming platform comes in and adds an extraordinary list of films to its servers. Some of these are new to Netflix, others have done time on the platform in the past.
Today Netflix subscribers can watch everything from Shrek to The Big Lebowski to Arrival to Do The Right Thing on top of all the other brilliant TV shows, films and documentaries that Netflix offers.

Netflix would also like you to know that A Star Is Born' will arrive on its platform on 12 April, as will Rocketman on 30 April. Not a bad month of movies in the grand scheme of things, is it?
