Four Movies Coming Out This Month You Won’t Want to Miss

After a particularly buzzing time at the box office in March, thanks to the release of Dune: Part Two and Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, April is looking to continue the trend with several major films dropping this month. Several films that premiered at last month’s South by Southwest film festival will drop through the month, each one garnering more praise with the last. With so many options to choose from this month, here’s four movies you will definitely want to keep on your radar:

The Greatest Hits

April 5 in theaters and April 12 on Hulu

This Hulu original was one of the buzziest films at this year’s South by Southwest film festival. The Greatest Hits premiered at the Austin-based festival on March 14 and has been receiving excellent reviews for not only the intriguing new twist in the time-travel genre but also for the stellar soundtrack. which uses songs from boygenius, Beach House, Lana Del Rey, Jamie XX and more. That’s because music is the unofficial main character in the film. The real main character is Harriet (Lucy Boynton), a producer-turned-librarian who is making her way through hundreds of vinyl records, trying to find the right song that will save her former boyfriend (David Corenswet) from a tragic fate. As she makes her way through each song, a new potential love interest (Justin H. Min) comes along reminding her that getting stuck in the past is not a life worth living.

Civil War

April 12

One of the most anticipated releases of the month is Alex Garland’s Civil War. The A24 film has generated a lot of buzz, not only for its stellar cast — Nick Offerman! Kirsten Dunst! Jesse Plemons! — but also for its intriguing premise: Set in the not-too-distant future, a group of journalists travels across the United States as a Civil War erupts for the first time in nearly 200 years. As they race against the clock to reach the nation’s capital, rebel factions led by the separatist Western Forces are prepared to incur wrath on the White House. It appears Alex Garland, known for his previous works which includes 28 Days LaterAnnihilation and Ex Machina, has created another dystopian action thriller masterpiece.

Rebel Moon — Part Two: The Scargiver

April 19

April appears to be a great month for dystopian wars to break out, because Netflix is dropping Rebel Moon — Part Two: The Scargiver, the second film in Zack Snyder’s sci-fi epic. This installment follows Kora and the surviving warriors as they prepare to defend the brave people of Veldt and their village against the forces of the Motherworld. Sofia Boutella, Djimon Hounsou, Ed Skrein, Michiel Huisman, Doona Bae and Anthony Hopkins and more will star in this epic film. The first part dropped back in December and debuted at the top of Netflix’s top 10 English-language film list. Though it didn’t last long on top, perhaps Snyder’s second chapter will fair better.

Unsung Hero

April 26

for KING & COUNTRY are heading to the big screen — and they’re bringing the whole family along.
