This April we bring you new releases, classics, or content you haven't yet seen in theaters or on your favorite platforms.

The Chosen

"The Chosen" has become, in its own right, the best on-screen depiction of the life of Christ. With exceptional writing and character development, it is a work as captivating as "The Passion," but more human.

This film adaptation about the life of Jesus has already been running for 3 seasons and they plan to make it eight. All this having raised money from individuals through crowdfunding. A sum of money that has not stopped growing exponentially since the first episode was released.

This Easter the series arrives to Movistar Plus+, after being the most watched series on acontra+.

But not only that. Globally it has been a hit with audiences and critics (second only to "Breaking Bad" on IMDB) and comes loaded with awards.

With its sequel in theaters, it is worth remembering the movie Shazam!, a mix of humor, tenderness and adventure reminiscent of the 90's classics. Its script entertains effortlessly, combining tragedy, comedy and endearing characters.

This is a superhero movie that never forgets the true power of the genre: the forging of a hero with a heart, the joyful fulfillment of desires and a villain to match. A movie for the whole family but with a dark edge reminiscent of the DC comic book adaptations of the 90s. This film combines the unpretentious joys of the comic books of yesteryear with sharp, elaborately simple humor.
