We are two months into the new decade and it’s been a slow start at the box office. Bad Boys For Life is the leader at the box office currently while Sonic the Hedgehog was a pleasant surprise and Birds of Prey has disappointed (I did enjoy it that’s because Harley Quinn is the best). Time to move on from the cold winter and focus on spring and the five movies I think you need to see.
A Quiet Place: Part II
The sequel to the 2018 horror film picks right up after the events of the first film. I won’t spoil it but you should go watch it if you haven’t seen it. It looks like this film is going to expand on the events of the first one and continue to explore a world with these creepy ass sound monsters. Seeing this movie in theaters is a must because nobody will make a sound. Seeing the first one in theaters people were afraid to eat popcorn or take a sip out of their drink. We can probably expect the same for Part II. (Release date: March 20th)
I feel like this movie has been on hold for two years. That’s actually true since it was original slated for a release back in April 2018. Disney purchased 21st Century Fox which means this is the final film of the X-Men series. GASP. Don’t worry though. Disney/Marvel owns the rights now so it probably won’t be too long from now until we see the X-Men hanging out with the Avengers. This film looks to explore a group of young mutants trapped in a facility. You had me at X-Men. (Release date: April 3rd)
I’m intrigued by this movie and I’m not 100% sure why. I almost put The Hunt on this list instead but that just makes me want to read The Most Dangerous Game. This movie looks interesting and has the potential for some good scares since the trailer does a good job of not giving away too much. I hate trailers that show you the whole fucking movie in a 2:30 clip (Batman v Superman). Not selling the idea of going to pay $12 to see it when I already know the outcome. The film is based on the short story “The Quiet Boy”. Gonna have to read that before the film comes out. (Release date: April 17th)
No Time to Die
James Bond. That is all I need to say. I’m a big fan of the franchise and this is the last time we get to see Daniel Craig play 007. I have seen all of his Bond films and it’s a 50/50 split for me. Casino Royale and Skyfall were great while Quantum of Solace and Spectre were just eh. This was my favorite trailer from this list and I can confirm I will be seeing this one in theaters. Should be an excellent finale to Daniel Craig era of the Bond franchise. Big question....do you think he lives or dies? (Release date: April 10th)
This film was obviously going to make the list since Disney rules the world. I will admit that Mulan was one of my OG Disney favorites. This film looks different and I like the idea that this one is not supposed to be a direct live-action remake but loosely based. I just hope they bring back some of the original songs (I'll Make a Man Out of You BETTER be in this film). I noticed the film is receiving a PG-13 rating so we should get some decent action scenes (I see you Disney). I also believe this film will make the most money from this list because….well it's Disney and they make all of the money. They will bring honor to us all. (Release date: March 27th).
No Time to Die. Mulan. A Quiet Place 2. New Mutants. Antlers. That is the order of how my interest in seeing these movies. What does your list look like? Let me know and also give me some feedback if you see these films before I do. Let me know which films need to be watched in theaters and which films can wait for Netflix.
Happy viewing and cheers!
