If you’re a fan of Netflix, then you know that the beginning of a new month usually means the addition of fresh content on the streaming service.

From classic films to new releases and original programming, Netflix goes above and beyond to ensure there’s quality content to suit its subscribers’ viewing pleasures, especially if you enjoy Black stars in leading roles.

If you’re in the market for something to catch up on, check out these additions premiering this month:

Streaming Date: April 01

Will Smith’s post-apocalyptic science fiction horror film I Am Legend tells the frightening story of a scientist who manages to survive a man-made plague. Smith, who stars as Robert Neville, attempts to work on a cure for the plague while thwarting infected humans-turned-blood-thirsty mutants.

Beyoncé and Idris Elba sound like two perfectly solid reasons to check out Steve Shill’s 2009 thriller, Obsessed, but if you need more of an incentive besides being a Bey-Hive member or an Elba stan, we’ve got you. The film centers on newly promoted Derek Charles (Elba) and his wife (Beyoncé) as they face a temporary employee who takes her infatuation with Charles way too far.

Starring Samuel L. Jackson, Patrick Wilson and Kerry Washington, 2008’s Lakeview Terrace is a crime thriller that shows what happens when a pesky neighbor turns a married couple’s dream home into their worst nightmare.

Streaming Date: April 02

Comedian Kevin Hart brings the laughs while owning up to some pretty big mistakes in his sixth comedy special, Irresponsible.

Streaming Date: April 19

LaKeith Stanfield and DeWanda Wise are slated to appear in the new Netflix Original romantic comedy Someone Great. The film will show what happens when a newly single music journalist and her two besties go on one last adventure before she moves to San Francisco.

Streaming Date: April 25

Samuel L. Jackson stars in the extended version of Quentin Tarantino’s violent Western, The Hateful Eight.
