Movies to look forward to in April

Don’t miss these April releases

April is an odd month on the movie calendar. Not quite a dead month and right before the summer blockbuster season begins, it is an interesting mix of arthouse fare, action, and horror. Throw streaming services into the mix and there is a little something for everyone. Here are some of the films you should not miss in April.

Aline (Theaters: April 8)

Listen to the latest episode of the AIPT Movies Podcast!

Nothing in the world matters more to Aline Dieu than music, family, and love. As she becomes an international star, she also becomes entangled in a romance with managed Guy-Claude Kamar. An unofficial biopic inspired by Celine Dion that does not have the salacious trappings that seem mandatory in today’s world is refreshing.

All the Old Knives (Theaters and Prime Video: April 8)

This globetrotting adventure is about two ex-lovers and spies (Chris Pine and Thandiwe Newton) who are meeting for dinner. As the two reminiscence over the past, talk turns to a disastrous event that left over 100 people dead. Was one of them the cause?

Crush (Hulu: April 29)

Movies to look forward to in April

Hulu has been knocking it out of the park with their high school comedies lately. Their latest one has all the trappings of another fun teen comedy. When an aspiring young artist is forced to join her high school track team, she uses it as an opportunity to pursue the girl she’s been harboring a long-time crush on. But she soon finds herself falling for an unexpected teammate and discovers what real love feels like.

Minamata (On Demand & Digital: April 8)

This year the Oscars had their first fan voted award. While the third place winner may have been as much a result of his random fandom, Johnny Depp is great in this overlooked film. The movie is based on the true story of war photographer W. Eugene Smith who travel to Japan where he documents the devastating effect of mercury poisoning in coastal communities.

The Cellar (Theaters and Shudder: April 15)

One of the surprises from this year’s SXSW was its strong genre line up. One of the best entries was this haunted house story from Ireland. Combining classic story with some neat twists, the story will scare audiences. (The month will also include our interview with stars Elisha Cuthbert and Eion Macken and writer-director Brendan Muldowney.)

The Northman (Theaters: April 22)

Robert Eggers is back with an all-star cast that includes Nicole Kidman, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Bjork to tell an action filled tale of revenge. Eggers has an impressive resume and the story has the epic feel needed in every good Viking tale.
