Movies in Theaters in April 2024


After a stellar March outing in theaters, featuring the release of Dune: Part Two and Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, April is looking to continue the trend with several major films. After a slow start to 2024, March picked up the slack. Hopefully, these upcoming films, including Dev Patel’s directorial debut, a Nicolas Cage flick, and Alex Garland’s latest thriller, will see audiences return to theaters.




In addition to these highly anticipated movies, next month’s list includes a beautiful romance film based on a #1 New York Times Best Seller alongside films starring prominent actors such as Henry Cavill and Sean Astin. So, without further ado, here is every movie coming to theaters in April 2024.

Monkey Man, a forthcoming action film from actor and director Dev Patel, has received favorable reviews following its debut at the South by Southwest Film Festival on Mar. 11, 2024, with many critics comparing it to action masterpieces such as The Raid and John Wick.

The family must face the terrors that emerge once the sun goes down, but more importantly, they must stick together to increase their chances of survival. Arcadian is in theaters on Apr. 12.

Civil War
