By Kara Santos Published Apr 30, 2021 3:57 pm

Netflix has released its summer movie preview lineup and it’s looking like the streaming service will be jam-packed with exciting new movies in the coming weeks ahead.

The streamer is promising new movies, every week, all summer, and we can't wait for Army of the Dead this May. Check out the entire teaser below and wait for the end for a special cameo and message from Zack Synder.

As we head into a brand new month this Saturday, the streamer is offering some relatively fun blockbuster films you may have missed on the big screen as well as brand new anime series Yasuke.

In recent weeks, classic film franchises seem to be making a comeback on the small screen. The entire Twilight series, which debuted last week, is still going strong on the streamer, while popular films released 20 years ago, including  Miss Congeniality and Charlie's Angels just dropped.
