Month #4 in 2021 seems to be looking up with potentially bigger movie releases, the first of which is Godzilla vs. Kong at the end of March/beginning of April leading to Mortal Kombat on April 16, both are from Warner Bros. and following their plan to have movies released in theaters and on HBO Max on the same day.
While the number of new theatrical releases is still very small, it looks like it will be increasing as we head into the summer months. Regal will finally be reopening many of its US theaters again soon, maybe.
On an incidental note, we’ve been seeing more people attending the theater. We’ve made it up to 17 movies seen in theaters in 2021 as of this writing.
For historical reference, we’re including the films originally planned for this month, delays and reschedules dates when available as of this writing.
We’re also including some notable streaming releases, but this list isn’t meant to be all-inclusive. Weekly on Thursdays usually we post a “WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEKEND” list covering streaming in more depth.
All April 2021 movie release dates unless otherwise indicated are for the United States, the release dates in other countries can/may/will vary.
