Michael B. Jordan's 'Without Remorse' brings the thrills, while Lena Waithe's 'Them' brings the chills
Amazon Prime Video doesn't have a whole lot of new offerings coming in April, but its two highest-profile debuts should at least bring the thrills.
The biggest of the bunch looks to be "Without Remorse" (April 30), an action thriller movie based on the Tom Clancy book. Michael B. Jordan stars as John Kelly, a Navy SEAL who uncovers a global conspiracy while tracking down his wife's killers.
Also intriguing is "Them" (April 9), a limited anthology series from producer Lena Waithe ("Master of None," "The Chi") that "explores terror in America." Set in the 1950s, Season 1 focuses on a Black family who move to an all-white part of Los Angeles, where they face hostility from neighbors as well as supernatural forces.
Also coming in April: "Frank of Ireland" (April 16), an Irish comedy series about a misanthropic musician (); and "Moment of Truth" (April 2), a docu-series on Amazon's free IMDb TV channel re-examining the 1993 murder of Michael Jordan's father, James Jordan, and the two teens convicted of the crime.
