Opening this Weekend: April 25

For No Good Reason

April has been often considered a low-key month before the on slot of summer movies. April was the one last chance studios had to slip in their smaller releases before the beginning of blockbuster season. Now April releases feel like a teaser for the summer movies to come, with quite a few larger and anticipated films on its roster. And this year it all begins with a little something from Marvel. 


So, whether you choose to check out that indie you heard so much about or the latest big studio release, don’t forget to click on the movie title below to view the trailer. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.
