How are you to manage the plethora of streaming titles available? That’s where this column comes in. Let us guide your way. Here are some of the best films to stream in April, along with where to stream them.

dragonheart-4

Depending on your tolerance for cheesy fantasy movies, you’ll either be appalled or pleasantly surprised to know that Universal is still pumping out Dragonheart sequels. It’s been 21 years since the original movie hit theaters, but last year’s prequel, Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer’s Curse, evidently did well enough to warrant keeping this franchise alive. Now we have the first trailer for the latest entry in the saga, Dragonheart 4: Battle for the Heartfire, and this one has enlisted the voice talents of Sir Patrick Stewart to voice the dragon.

spider-man homecoming trailer

In the tangled web that is modern superhero movie rights, it’s appropriate that the spider-themed comic book hero has found a way to navigate it all. Spider-Man: Homecoming represents a grand compromise between Marvel Studios and Sony: the latter still owns the character, but he’s allowed to exist in the universe built by the former.

So when you watch the new trailer that premiered at CinemaCon last night and arrived online today, just remember the sheer amount of paperwork and headaches it took for Spider-Man and Iron Man to share the screen.

A Ghost Story Trailer

After director David Lowery was finished with Pete’s Dragon last year, he took the time to secretly shoot a film in Dallas, Texas throughout July and August. Production was completed in September, and the film had its world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, receiving plenty of acclaim. Now you can get a taste of what critics were raving about.

Fresh off their Best Picture win for Moonlight, A24 has unveiled the first trailer for their haunting indie drama A Ghost Story. This is truly one of the most unique films I’ve ever seen at a film festival, but it’s one that requires patience, an open mind, and plenty of afterthought. It’s difficult for a trailer to encapsulate the spirit of this mesmerizing movie, but hopefully it will be enough to help convince audiences to give it a chance.

Man on the Moon - Movies Compared to History

Year in and year out there are movies made that are based on real life. In some cases, movies have the task of expertly recreating real events that were witnessed by real people who were either at the event at the time it happened or watched it on television. Now a new video from filmmaker Vugar Efendi takes footage from movies that replicated real moments in history, such as Selma, Jackie, and Catch Me If You Can, and puts it side-by-side with footage and/or photos from the real events.

Watch movies compared to history in the video below. Read More »

life super bowl spot

After its underwhelming opening weekend at the box-office, a Life sequel appears very unlikely. Nobody was expecting a follow-up to the lean sci-fi horror movie anyway, but screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick actually have an idea or two for how to continue the story. It turns out that the duo has a bigger Aliens-esque sequel in mind for their Alien-esque film.

Below, check out their thoughts on a Life sequel (SPOILERS for Life ahead).
