Best Movies in Theaters in April 2019 – Top Movie Releases This Month
Another month, another crop of movies, but for some reason April feels exceptionally scary and action-packed. The clear favorite here is Avengers: Endgame, which is projected to make approximately seventy-five bajillion dollars at the box office. But in case you’re not on the Marvel train, we have you covered. Stay up on your horror game with some dead animals and child-snatching ghosts, or maybe just kick back and let Aretha take you to church. Here are our picks for the best eight films you can catch this April.
Pet Sematary (April 5)
Yes to horror. Yes to cats. Yes to a reboot of Pet Sematary. The animal-centric horror story of dead pets coming back to life is being resurrected again, and unlike a lot of remakes, this one actually looks… pretty solid?
Shazam! (April 5)
Shazam! is here to compete in the heavily crowded field of superhero films. In this one, a 14-year-old has the ability to transform into a superhero by shouting out a single word. Bet you can’t guess what it is…
Amazing Grace (April 5)
Amazing Grace is the oldest, newest film of the bunch—and likely to be one of the best of the month. The Aretha Franklin film takes her back to New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles in 1972, where she performed some of her most prolific songs. Before now, the concert movie hadn’t been released.
High Life (April 12)
Robert Pattinson is starting in a movie opposite a young girl and practically has to hold the movie together on his own. No, we’re not talking about another Twilight film. We’re talking about High Life—an upcoming film where he stars as a father who survives a space collision with his infant daughter.
Little (April 12)
Little is the working-woman’s answer to Freaky Friday. When Jordan’s (Regina Hall) overbearing demands wreak havoc on the workplace, she wakes up one day to find herself switched with a little girl (Marsai Martin). The two gave their own lessons to learn before returning back to their own bodies.
Hellboy (April 12)
Hellboy explores that classic conundrum when you’re not a boy, not yet a demon. The reboot of the graphic novel-based film franchise sees the titular Hellboy battling a sorceress who won’t go down without a fight.
The Curse of La Llorona (April 19)
Itching for another horror film after Us? Try out the Linda Cardellini-led La Llorona. Then again, maybe the real lead is La Llorona—a ghost haunting children in the ’70s that stands to cause serious danger to a social worker mother and her children.
Avengers: Endgame (April 24)
Avengers: Endgame is (allegedly) the end of this Marvel era, and these superheroes are going out with a bang. Working to undo the havoc caused by Thanos in the last installment, Captain Marvel joins the splintered remains to restore balance to the universe and, of course, save the world.
