MoviefiedNYC’s Opening in April

In a nutshell, here’s what is opening this April. Not a bad month with some interesting fare being served by the likes of  Danny Boyle, Terrence Malick, Shane Carruth and Jeff Nichols. Don’t forget to click on the titles to view the trailers. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater. – MD

April 5

Evil Dead (in 3D) 
This remake of the 1981 film boasts on the poster “most terrifying film you will ever experience”. I believe it will be missing my favorite ingredient from ’81, Bruce Campbell.

Jurassic Park (in 3D)
Does it need to be in 3D? No. Am I excited to see it? Yes.

The Brass Teapot

The Brass Teapot (Limited)
A dark, magical comedy that looks fanciful and relatively entertaining. May be worth a look.
The Company You Keep (Limited)
Robert Reford directs and stars. I’m curious to see Brit Marling in something she has not produced herself.

No Place On Earth (Limited)
A documentary about a cave expedition in which they found remnants of a WWII camp, the discovery leads to a remarkable and harrowing story of survival.


Trance (Limited)
From the amazing mind of Danny Boyle, I can’t wait to see this. 

Upstream Color (Limited)
Shane Carruth’s highly anticipated second feature after Primer.

Baseball biopic about the legendary first black MLB player Jackie Robinson. Love a sports movie.

Lohan, Sheen…no comment.

Here are some of the words I fear the most: “ensemble drama,” followed by the words, “all star cast”.
