Top picks

Música (April 4)

If you suffer from synaesthesia, this sweet, New Jersey-set rom-com might look like a shade of pale, inviting yellow—it might taste like a bottle of berry mineral water. Social media star Rudy Mancuso plays a young man with just that affliction, who must keep his family life, Brazilian cultural heritage, musical obsessions, and a budding new romance with Camila Mendes in balance. Hopefully it’s a toe-tappingly good time.

Fallout: Season 1 (April 11)

The rust-bucket, mid-century, post-apocalyptic aesthetic of the Fallout video game franchise is just begging to be adapted to the screen, and this epic sci-fi series attempts just that. I’m most keen to see my boy Walton Goggins, sans nose, as mutant gunslinger The Ghoul, but Ella Purnell, Kyle MacLachlan, Matt Berry and Aaron Moten certainly sweeten the deal. It should be a lot of fun exploring this wasteland—especially for die-hard fans of the games.

Them: The Scare (April 25)

It’s been a year or so since the first season of Them premiered, and the socially-conscious horror show has morphed into an anthology series, with this 1991-set scary season jumping away from the eerie, 1950s suburbia of those former episodes. Here’s hoping that the latest chapter won’t be labelled “Black trauma porn” by some critics, with new stars like Pam Grier bringing the fear alongside returning lead Deborah Ayorinde. Looks like a blend of crime-mystery, dark family drama, and reckonings with the US’s violent systems of anti-Blackness.
