These are my picks (complete with the reason for my choice) for the movies coming to theaters in April, but feel free to check out all of April's releases by visiting the Internet Movie Database's Coming Soon page.
Friday, April 5th
Director: Fede Alvarez
o Why? It isn't everyday that a remake gets the full support of the original director and star, but Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell have expressed their full support. If you remember, The Evil Dead had less comedy than Evil Dead 2, so a remake of the first that's intent on being scarier is not diverting from the original intent.
Director: Steven Spielberg
o Why? You have the opportunity to see it again, or for the first time, on the big screen and in 3D. This should be a special opportunity for those of you with children.
Friday, April 12th
Director: Joseph Kosinski
o Why? Tom Cruise.
Friday, April 19th
Director: Rob Zombie
o Why? Rob Zombie likes to put out some rough horror, so you can expect a wild ride.
Friday, April 26th
Director: Michael Bay
o Why? Pairing Marky Mark with The Rock could be one of the best decisions Michael Bay has ever made.
