6 Flicks Picks for April 2018 Movie Release Schedule

Posted by Anthony Mango Sunday, April 1, 2018
Welcome to another edition of 6 Flicks Picks, wherein I list all of the upcoming films that are scheduled to be released in the United States for the month which is about to begin and break down which ones I'll be watching in theaters, which ones I'll wait to rent at home, and which ones I'll be skipping out on entirely. After going through the list, I'll choose which six films stand out to me as the ones I want to see the most, even if there are more or less than six that interest me.

Note: The list below is based primarily off the expanded nationwide USA release dates on IMDB as well as some other random outlets if possible, so some information may be different. If I am missing some of the limited releases or the dates conflict in some fashion, please let me know in the comments below and any adjustments and corrections will be made!

Without further ado, another new month means another new set of films, so what's coming soon to theaters in April 2018?

Which films make the cut?

6. Overboard — Let's be honest, I'm not seeing this. I'd sooner watch Infinity War six times.

5. Blockers — Let's be honest, I'm not seeing this. I'd sooner watch Infinity War six times. However, at least if I watched this, I could talk about it on my other site, Smark Out Moment, as it stars John Cena.

4. Super Troopers 2 — I've never seen the first one and I've heard good things, so maybe I'll check that out and want to see this.

3. A Quiet Place — I'm very, very intrigued about what the hell is going on in this movie. This is the first horror film in a long time that I actually want to watch.

2. Rampage — When I first saw the trailer for this, I said out loud "That is shockingly better looking than I ever would have expected." and I honestly think I'll check this out with Movie Pass, which is so weird, as I laughed at the idea when it was just a rumor.

1. Avengers: Infinity War — This is EEEEEEEEVERYTHING. 10 years building up to this point and Avengers 4. I'm more pumped about this movie than any other film coming out this entire year, EASILY, and I bought 16 tickets for my friends and I already the other day.
