“Keanu” – April 29

The hilarious comedy duo Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele of Comedy Central’s sketch comedy series “Key and Peele,” are coming together to save a kitten. Yes, a kitten, and how, you might wonder? By pretending to be drug dealers. The film could basically be one long skit of “Key and Peele,” so fans of the show know it’ll bring the humor. The film features Will Forte, Nia Long, Luis Guzman, among other funny celebrities. – H. Santilli

“The Huntsman: Winter’s War” – April 22

Mirror, mirror on the wall, will this prequel be good at all? Hopefully, because this prequel of “Snow White and the Huntsman” was produced by Roth Films, the same company who produced the Disney blockbuster “Maleficent.” The film follows the story of the evil queen, Ravenna (Charlize Theron) and her younger sister Freya (Emily Blunt), who have ice powers, before the story of Snow White. Ravenna and Freya have a devastating falling out, triggering a war among kingdoms. The film also stars Chris Hemsworth, Jessica Chastain, and Sam Clafflin. – H. Santilli 

Everybody Wants Some!!” – April 8

Ever in the mood for one of those “Animal House” type, 70s and 80s college kind of movies? Then you’re in luck because the director and writer of “Dazed and Confused,” Richard Linklater brings you “Everybody Wants Some!!” This new comedy follows college freshman Jake (Blake Jenner) who arrives at his school to join the baseball team. The film stars Zoey Dutch, Will Brittain, and Ryan Guzman. – H. Santilli

“Barbershop: The Next Cut” – Now Playing

It has been over a decade since “Beauty Shop,” the third film/spin-off of the Barbershop series was released, which means it’s time for the fourth installment of the series. “Barbershop: The Next Cut” features a number of stars. Calvin (Ice Cube) returns as the owner of the South Side Chicago barbershop business, inherited from his father, and includes a number of other stars like by Cedric the Entertainer, Common, Nicki Minaj, and Anthony Anderson. The film takes aspects from the three previous ones and combines them. Instead of just a male barbershop or a female beauty shop, Calvin’s is now co-ed, and there is more gossip, drama, and competition for both men and women. – R. Fitzgerald
