Kevin Smith's horror movie Tusk is coming to Amazon this April. The Justin Long starrer about a man who's turned into a walrus will be available for Amazon Prime subscribers to stream through Amazon's pact with distributor A24. Tusk is one of several movies exclusively available to Prime subscribers hitting Amazon next month.

Other notable films streaming via Amazon's Prime Instant Video in April include Mommie Dearest; Dinesh D'Souza's America documentary; the 1994 version of Little Women starring Susan Sarandon, Winona Ryder, Claire Danes, Kirsten Dunst and Christian Bale; Groundhog Day; the 1998 Godzilla movie starring Matthew Broderick; three Star Trek films; the Paul Rudd-Amy Poehler rom-com spoof They Came Together and Russell Crowe's biblical epic Noah, both of which are also coming to Netflix.

Both Sons of Anarchy's seventh and final season and season four of Louie will be available for Prime-member streaming next month, but those titles are also debuting on Hulu, with Sons hitting Netflix as well.

In terms of titles that will be available for digital download, Oscar winners Selma and American Sniper debut on Amazon at the end of April. Fellow high-profile winter releases Big Eyes, Taken 3, The Gambler, Paddington, The Boy Next Door and Jupiter Ascending will also be available for purchase starting next month.

The latest seasons of Mad Men, Louie and Orphan Black will be available for purchase shortly after they air on TV as will episodes of NBC's American Odyssey (also streaming on Hulu).
