But the picture changes daily, so here’s a fine-grain image of the best movies this month has to offer.

Best new movies this month

1

Blockers

This one’s a battle-of-the-generations romp in which three parents discover their daughters’ pacts to lose their virginity on prom night and vow to stop it. (The script’s original title had a synonym for rooster before Blockers.) It’s a comedy, although it may not feel like it to fortysomethings on date nights. Apr 6

2

Chappaquiddick

Adding to a short list of onscreen Kennedy-themed excellence that includes 2016’s Jackie, John Curran’s concentrated look at the fatal midnight incident that would bring down rising star Edward Kennedy (Jason Clarke) is laced with squirmy disappointment. Apr 6

A Quiet Place

In their isolated rural farmhouse, a family cowers in absolute silence for fear of upsetting…what exactly? It’s not clear. Still, given the fine cast (Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Wonderstruck's Millicent Simmonds) and the film’s buzz, we may be in store for another It Comes at Night. Apr 6

4

Sweet Country

In the wake of Quentin Tarantino’s two acerbic Westerns confronting the legacy of slavery in America (Django Unchained, The Hateful Eight) comes a racially charged oater from Down Under. This Australian Outback movie morphs into an outdoor courtroom drama, and director Warwick Thornton wrings out of it a statement from the heart. Apr 6

Where Is Kyra?

One may as well ask: Where was Michelle Pfeiffer? The actor bounces back like she hasn’t in years in this superb, downbeat drama about a divorced Brooklyn woman slipping through the economic cracks. Apr 6

You Were Never Really Here

In this bruising psychological thriller, a hit man (Joaquin Phoenix) frets over the loose ends of his latest assignment: saving the abducted preteen daughter of a New York senator. Scottish director Lynne Ramsay has a stellar track record (Ratcatcher, Morvern Callar) and won't disappoint. Apr 6

Truth or Dare

Truth or Dare

Finally, someone’s turned the most excruciating junior-high party game into the horror flick it needs to be. Obviously, the dares here are fatal, and while the movie’s cast is stocked with pretty unknowns, their very disposability might add to the fun. Apr 13

Zama

The material, about an insulted Spanish colonial officer, comes from a 1956 novel, but director Lucrecia Martel’s red-faced close-ups of her leading man—scored to a synthesizer score straight out of Scarface—edge the movie into comic territory. And we haven’t even mentioned the llama. Apr 13

Rampage

It’s the Rock versus a bunch of mutated monsters in a big-screen adventure that’s loosely based on an ’80s arcade game. Come to think of it, our lives are loosely based on ’80s arcade games, so we’re guardedly optimistic. Apr 13

Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War

Featuring more stars than Hollywood Boulevard, Marvel corrals all of its superheroes—including Black Panther’s supercool Chadwick Boseman—into its biggest-ever blockbuster (at least in terms of actor salaries). This time, the Avengers face down evil intergalactic jawline Thanos (Josh Brolin). Apr 27
