New Movies Out Now in Theaters: What to See This Week

It’s not always easy to find out which movies are hitting theaters each week, especially after the Hollywood strikes led to many release date changes. With the WGA and actors strikes resolved and summer blockbusters starting to roll in, April is filled with both big budget flicks and new indie releases.

Premiering April 12 is Alex Garland’s “Civil War,” a political thriller that follows a team of military-embedded journalists across a dystopian America in the throes of a civil war staring Nick Offerman, Kirsten Dunst, Wagner Moura and Jefferson White. Also hitting theaters is “Arcadian,” an action horror about a father and his two sons who live in a remote farmhouse during humanity’s last days staring Nicolas Cage, Jaeden Martell, Maxwell Jenkins and Sadie Soverall. Two other films getting wide releases this week are “Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead,” a dark comedy with Jermaine Fowler and Nicole Richie, and “Sting,” a thriller about a pet spider that grows into a bloodthirsty monster. Keep an eye out for Guy Ritchie’s “The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare” and “Abigail” which both release next week.
