Good news for people with an overwhelming sense of morbid curiosity: One of 2020's most bafflingly ill-conceived films is coming to Hulu in April, meaning you can finally see if the movie produced by Michael Bay about a bicycle courier living in the COVID-ravaged near-future where the lockdowns never ended and the virus just got worse and worse is as miserable as the reviews (and premise) made it seem. Yes, we’re talking about Songbird, which is coming to Hulu on April 16. Who knows, maybe it’ll be fun to check out once you’ve been vaccinated? Or maybe it’ll be a depressing reminder of the real world we’re still living in right now? Either way: April 16!


In terms of Hulu additions that aren’t irritatingly bleak and depressing, there’s also Spontaneous with Katherine Langford and Charlie Plummer (set in a world where high schoolers keep exploding for some reason!), Fly Like A Girl (about women trying to become pilots in a male-dominated field), a documentary about Greta Thunberg and her attempts to save the world from climate change, a documentary on WeWork, and the fourth season premiere of The Handmaid’s Tale. Actually, all of those sound bleak and depressing in their own ways, but at least you can watch a new season of Chopped and a few Die Hard movies. That’s fun, right?So I Married An Axe Murderer? That movie’s a blast!

Anyway, the full list of what’s coming to Hulu in April is below, followed by the list of what’s leaving.
