Here’s five movies to check out in theaters this month:
- Onward– 6th
The latest project from Pixar, Onward tells the story of two elf brothers Ian (Tom Holland) and Barley (Chris Pratt) in search of magic to spend one more day with their deceased father. Early critics are calling the movie “a masterpiece and unmissable fantasy adventure”. Onward is something the entire family can enjoy.
2. Bloodshot– 13th
Comic book nerds are pretty excited for this one. Vin Diesel stars as Ray Garrison, a soldier recently killed in action and is brought back to life as a superhero by the name Bloodshot. He’s enhanced with nanotechnology and used as a killing machine. Loss with memory, he soon discovers he and his wife were killed and is out for revenge.
3. The Hunt– 13th
So much controversy behind this film. The original release dat was September 27th of last year but with the number of mass shootings and the President tweeting about the film, Universal Pictures decided to delay the movie. That basically gives you an idea on what to expect from this movie. It’s like if The Hunger Games and Hostel had a baby they would get The Hunt. The movie stars Hilary Swank, Emma Roberts, Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Blockers), Justin Hartley (This Is Us), and Betty Gilpin (GLOW, Isn’t It Romantic).
4. A Quit Place: Part II– 20th
John Krasinski shocked the world with A Quiet Place; which was one of the best movies of 2018. With high expectations for the sequel, Krasinski is not looking to disappoint. Part two picks up where we left off from the first film. The Abbott family seeks out for survival when they come across Emmett (Cillian Murphy), and they soon realize that the creatures that hunt by sound aren’t the only threat.
5. Mulan- 27th
Don’t expect a singing dragon or love interest in this one. Disney is once again turning an animated classic to a live action film. You can expect some of your favorite songs that were in the original like “Reflection” and “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” but not necessarily performed the same.
Other films to look out for: The Banker (6th), The Way Back (6th), My Spy (13th), and I Still Believe (20th)
