New on Netflix April 1: The Bubble
Talk about a meta movie! New on Netflix this weekend is The Bubble, a wild and cheeky comedy film about making a movie during COVID-19. In the middle of the pandemic, a group of actors travel to a closed film set in England to film the sixth installment of their successful dinosaur-themed blockbuster franchise called Cliff Beasts. But as you’d expect, sticking passionate cast and crew members together in one posh hotel is going to lead to sneak-outs, hook-ups and many, many meltdowns. Featuring a comedy-packed cast including Leslie Mann, Karen Gillan, Pedro Pascal, Maria Bakalova, Fred Armisen, Keegan-Michael Key, Kate McKinnon and more, The Bubble is the meta-comedy flick to laugh at the absurdity than has been this pandemic. Check it, and the other top movies new on Netflix this month, out!
