"Blockers" (April 6, Rated R)

When a trio of parents, played by John Cena, Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz, uncover their daughters’ plan to lose their virginity on prom night, these concerned adults find themselves doing just about anything to stop it from happening, even if it means chugging obscene amounts of beer through an orifice where beer should never be chugged. This film marks the directorial debut of Kay Cannon, best known for writing the screenplay for “Pitch Perfect” and its sequels.

 

"A Quiet Place" (April 6, Rated PG-13)

Starring John Krasinski, who also directs the film, and Emily Blunt, Krasinski’s wife in real life who plays his pregnant, on-screen wife, “A Quiet Place” is described as a “modern horror thriller.” In the film, Krasinski, Blunt and their two children must live in silence when a mysterious creature who hunts by sound threatens their very existence. As described in the film’s trailer, “If they hear you, they hunt you.”
