3. High Life (April 5)
Robert Pattinson makes a come back to the box office with an eery, weird, but totally intriguing space thriller that comes unlike any other. Imagine a very twisted, dark, and almost scary version of Passengers, but extra twisted.

4. Amazing Grace (April 5)
Probably the only thing in this list that’s not scary or superhero involving, Amazing Grace is an ode to the late, Aretha Franklin.
A 1972 film that was never before seen by the public, Sydney Pollack takes us back to 1972 when Aretha Franklin was singing at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles with one of her best albums yet.
5. Hellboy (April 12)
The oldie but a goodie, Hellboy is coming back as a reboot! Although nothing’s wrong about the previous Hellboy movies, this one has better effects, new sidekicks, and flying dragons! All the while preserving the original Hellboy‘s angsty sarcasm.
Hellboy (David Harbour) is a child straight from the depths of hell but ironically raised by humans to save the Earth. In this reboot, he tries to fend off an ancient sorceress threatening to destroy the world.
Along the way, he faces ogres, monsters from hell, and a lot more, but this time he gets to do it with a flaming sword and a floating, flaming crown all the while on top of a flying dragon!
6. The Curse of La Llorona (April 19)
If you weren’t scared when your parents told you that bad children get taken away by parents, then maybe the movie version might change that.
The Curse of La Llorona is the telling of the “Weeping Woman,” who is popular in Latin folklore, that is searching for her tragically lost children. However, La Llorona is doing more than simply ‘looking’.
7. Avengers: Endgame
The movie that needs no introduction, Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame comes out at the last week of the month to finish the pretty intense cliff hanger from Avengers: Infinity War.
This will be the latest installment to the Avengers series that took well over a decade to accomplish. It is said to make good money at around $5 billion, which they are quite deserving.
See on cinemas how the Avengers will avenge the fallen and defeat Thanos.
