Ready Player One

Release date: March 29
Starring: Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Simon Pegg
Director: Steven Spielberg
What to Expect: Already heralded as “pure Spielberg magic” and “an ode to the adventure genre that Spielberg made so popular,” this movie looks like an enormous amount of fun. It’s also a welcome return to the adventure/fantasy genre for Spielberg, who has lately been making admittedly dull, though well-made, movies like The Post, Bridge of Spies, and Lincoln. Based on the book of the same name, this film is going to be full of pop culture Easter eggs, so don’t be surprised if you see Halo’s Master Chief taking on Freddy Krueger taking on the Iron Giant.

Blockers

Release date: April 6
Starring: John Cena, Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz
Director: Kay Cannon
What to Expect: John Cena recently proved his comedic chops in Daddy’s Home 2, and after Blockers we may very well have another Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on our hands. Who would’ve thought WWE would churn out good actors? With the movie already boasting an 89 percent on rottentomatoes.com, we are very excited to see this and Cena’s butt-chugging contest (don’t ask questions; just watch the trailer).

A Quiet Place

Release date: April 6
Starring: John Krasinski, Emily Blunt
Director: John Krasinski
What to Expect: If you’ve been to the movie theater at all over the past few months, then you’ve seen this deeply unsettling trailer. Directed by The Office’s John Krasinski, this horror film takes place in silence because there is something in the woods that will kill you if you make the slightest sound. One of the most disconcerting moments in the trailer shows Krasinski’s real-life wife, Emily Blunt, sitting in a bathtub and seemingly giving birth while trying to remain completely silent. We’re on the edges of our seats just thinking about it.

Rampage

Release date: April 13
Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Naomie Harris
Director: Brad Peyton
What to Expect: Usually we aren’t huge fans of movies where giant creatures destroy lots of crap, but this one looks like silly fun. Plus, we’re convinced that Johnson is a modern-day Midas because every movie he touches turns to gold. He’s just so damn likable. However, this film is based on a video game, and we know how that usually goes.

Super Troopers 2

Release date: April 20
Starring: Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme
Director: Jay Chandrasekhar
What to Expect: The movies made by the Broken Lizard comedy troupe (Club Dread, Beerfest) are an acquired taste, but the first Super Troopers movie became such a cult classic that when the guys announced they wanted to make a second one almost 17 years later, they were able to raise $4.4 million in only 30 days. We’ll see if the wait has been worth it.

Avengers: Infinity War

Release date: April 27
Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Pratt, Chris Evans
Directors:  Anthony and Joe Russo
What to Expect: The last 10 years of Marvel films have all been building to this moment, and what a ride it has been. There really isn’t a lot to say other than this may very well be the most epic 2 1/2 hours of our nerd lives. April can’t come soon enough.

The Untitled Deadpool Sequel

Release date: May 18
Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin
Director: David Leitch
What to Expect: This film, still untitled (unless that’s the actual name … plot twist!) is promising to be complete nonsense and utter mayhem. Just watch the trailer of Deadpool as Bob Ross. Then a few months later a trailer called “Meet Cable” came out and we got insanely excited.  Over all, we know we can expect over-the-top violence, lots of swearing, and even more silliness.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Release date: May 25
Starring: Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover
Director: Ron Howard
What to Expect: During production, this film had its fair share of troubles, the biggest being the mid-filming departure of original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller—the comedic geniuses behind 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie—due to creative differences. It’s unclear whether this shake-up will affect the final product, but the trailer appears promising and fun. Fun fact: This film will be released on the 41st anniversary of the release of Star Wars.

Truth or Dare

Release date: April 13
Starring: Lucy Hale, Tyler Posey, Violett Beane
Director: Jeff Wadlow
What to Expect: Evidently, this film aims to scare you by saying you’ll get a misshapen mouth as a result of playing truth or dare. We kid you not. Just watch this mess of a trailer.

I Feel Pretty

Release date: April 27
Starring: Amy Schumer, Emily Ratajkowski, Michelle Williams
Directors: Marc Silverstein and Abby Kohn
What to Expect: Chalk this one up as one of the most distasteful movies of the year, which has us all scratching our heads wondering, “How the hell did this get greenlit?” The always-annoying Schumer plays an insecure woman who hits her head and wakes up suddenly thinking she’s pretty. One scene in the trailer shows Schumer on a stripper pole while everyone gasps in disgust. Again, how did this get made?
