Avengers: Infinity War and all of the films you need to see in theatres this April!

This April, we're getting at least one of the most ambitious crossover events in film history with Avengers: Infinity War.

That's right, it's almost time to watch all of the Avengers plus Black Panther, Doctor Strange, The Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man, and almost every Marvel character that you could think of, in one epic movie. We'll be highly anticipating Infinity War all month long, but if superheroes aren't your thing, there is plenty more to see in theatres this April. Here are our top recommendations.


A Quiet Place

Release Date: April 6th, 2018

For Fans of: John Krasinski, silence and suspense, surprising horror

See it with: A date

Who knew that Jim from "The Office" would grow up to be the man behind this intense, atmospheric, and highly original new thriller! A Quiet Place spins the monster movie genre by one very clever plot device. In this post-apocalyptic setting, monsters are attacking anything that makes sound, forcing survivors to not just go into hiding, but to be absolutely silent. Directed by and starring John Krasinski alongside his real life wife Emily Blunt, A Quiet Place is the kind of film that is meant to be experienced on the big screen.


Blockers

Release Date: April 6th, 2018

For Fans of: ​Prom, meddling parents, teenage shenanigans

See it with: Friends

In Blockers we follow three parents, played by the hilarious trio of Leslie Mann, John Cena and Ike Barinholtz, who set out to prevent their teenage daughters from having sex on prom night. We could not think of a more hilarious or timely take on the prom genre, and we're betting that Blockers will deliver laughs from start to finish. This one seems perfect to take in with friends at a VIP theatre!


Chappaquiddick

Release Date: April 6th, 2018

For Fans of: The Kennedys, political history

See it with: ​Your parents

The untold story behind a fatal car accident that occurred in 1969 involving Ted Kennedy is coming to light on the big screen with Chappaquiddick. Jason Clarke plays Kennedy during the events where he drove his car off a bridge, resulting in the death of a young campaign strategist, Mary Jo Kopechne. The film also stars Kate Mara, Ed Helms and Bruce Dern.


Rampage

Release Date: April 13th, 2018

For Fans of: The Rock, giant mutant animals, action

See it with: Friends

Dwayne Johnson plays Davis, a primatologist who has an incredible bond with George, an intelligent gorilla who he has cared for since birth. Their bond is broken when a genetic experiment goes horribly wrong, and transforms George into a raging monster. Davis must now work with a discredited genetic engineer to try and secure an antidote to save his friend, and the world. This one is perfect to see in IMAX, for those giant CGI creatures to have the most visual impact!


Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero

Release Date: April 13th, 2018

For Fans of: Dogs, heroes, animation

See it with: Your kids

If you're looking for something new to watch with the family this month, Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero is the film you need. Based on a true story, here we meet the most celebrated dog in American military history, Sgt. Stubby, who became a hero during World War I. The voice cast includes Logan Lerman, Helena Bonham Carter and Gérard Depardieu. 


Truth or Dare

Release Date: April 13th, 2018

For Fans of: The party game Truth or Dare, teen horror

See it with: A date

We've all played it at some point, whether at a slumber party or sleepaway camp, and now the game Truth or Dare gets the horror treatment. Lucy Hale and Tyler Posey star in this twisted teen film, which turns the game into a nightmare when someone begins punishing those who either tell a lie or fail to complete the dare. For horror fans, Truth or Dare looks like a crazy time, and it comes from Blumhouse, the same studio that gave us recent classics like Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and Get Out.


You Were Never Really Here (Limited)

Release Date: April 13th, 2018

For Fans of: Art house films, Joaquin Phoenix, violence

See it with: ​Yourself

Director Lynne Ramsay is known for her gritty, dark vision, and You Were Never Really Here looks like it could be her most hard-hitting film yet. Starring Joaquin Phoenix, who won Best Actor for his performance when the film played at Cannes (the film also won Best Screenplay at the festival), he plays Joe, a traumatized veteran who tracks down missing girls for a living. One particular job spirals out of control, leading him into a nightmare state.


I Feel Pretty

Release Date: April 20th, 2018

For Fans of: Amy Schumer, body positivity, girl power

See it with: Friends

This high-concept comedy follows Renee (Amy Schumer), an insecure woman whose life changes when she hits her head and miraculously gains immeasurable self-confidence. Early reactions to the premise weren't all positive, but at the end of the day, this is a film that boasts body positivity and projects an important message about accepting and loving yourself. We're excited to see how this plays out, and the supporting cast, which includes real life best friends Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps, Aidy Bryant, Naomi Campbell and Rory Scoval, is nothing short of awesome.


Avengers: Infinity War

Release Date: April 27th, 2018

For Fans of: Marvel, superheroes, action and adventure, crossovers

See it with: Everyone

On April 27th, the day we've been waiting for will finally be here. Almost every Marvel character you could possibly think of will appear in Avengers: Infinity War, and it's going to be the cinematic event of the year. There's a good chance not all of these superheroes are going to make it out alive, so this is one you'll want to see opening weekend to avoid spoilers. Everyone is fighting against Thanos, who is attempting to collect all six infinity stones in order to meet his goal of destroying half of the universe. We're stoked to see how it all plays out, and this is definitely one we'll be checking out in IMAX!
