The temperature's rising, which means it's almost time for the summer movie season to begin! April is usually a good month for batting practice at the movies, and this year's lineup is no exception. We've got a new Marvel flick making an early play at box office glory, two potential sleeper hits in the horror realm, and John Cena chugging some beer from the rear.
Ladies and gentlemen, these are April 2018's biggest movies to hit theaters!
Avengers: Infinity War
Joe and Anthony Russo are back with yet another indie rom-com that just happens to look like a crossover of 10 years worth of Marvel Studios films. If you don't know about Avengers: Infinity War, welcome from whatever time-suspended circumstances you've been released from. Showcasing the best, brightest, and pretty much every MCU hero, in their quest to stop Thanos the Mad Titan from destroying half of the universe, this flick's set to break records and hearts. Here's hoping that if this is Captain America's last stand, it's one worthy of his epic legacy.
Release Date: April 27th.
Upon first blush, Blockers looks like the type of studio comedy that gets released solely in the name of counter-programming. But every time that trailer comes up, the chemistry of John Cena, Leslie Mann, and Ike Barinholtz solidifies just a bit more. As a trio of parents hellbent on preventing their daughters from losing their virginity at prom, these actors gel so well together that they could become a new comedy team. Plus, seeing Cena as the dorky dad just proves that everyone touting him as the next Dwayne Johnson isn't totally crazy.
Release Date: April 6th
