Thanks to Netflix, staying indoors will be easy due to its new monthly listings that feature a selection of exciting movies, TV shows and original programs. In case you need a little help deciding what to add to your must-watch lists, here are the top five choices to binge-watch this month…
1. Vantage Point
This drama/mystery film was one of the largest films released in 2008 and of course, it was a hit due to its stellar cast of Hollywood heavyweights including Dennis Quaid, Zoe Saldana, Matthew Fox and Forest Whitaker. The politically-charged action thriller tells the story of an assassination attempt on the U.S. president through several different witnesses until one tourist steps forward with his camcorder, which he believes contains an image of the shooter.
Vantage Point will air on May 15, 2018.
2. The Rain: Season 1
Netflix Originals are always so on-point and there’s a new one that is set to launch this month. The Danish show falls under the science fiction, fantasy and mystery genre, and tells the story of two young siblings who struggle for survival after a brutal virus wipes out most of Scandinavia’s population. Along the way, the two characters find young survivors seeking for answers in the post-apocalyptic world.
The Rain: Season 1 will air on May 4, 2018.
3. Dear White People: Volume 2
