Wealth of Geeks, an information hub for financial, tech and lifestyle guides and reviews, is giving film lovers the lowdown on the newest releases in theatres this spring. Their recent article by Richard Chachowski highlights the most anticipated films of the season along with current showings leaving theatres soon and popular re-releases to look out for.
The article serves as a user-friendly manual, offering a succinct overview of each movie, accompanied by a brief evaluation and insights into its critical reception. Additionally, it includes Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb ratings, allowing readers to make well-informed choices and schedule their upcoming cinema outings.
If there’s a theme that dominates their list of new releases, it’s action. First on their list is Shazam! Fury of the Gods, the latest offering from DCEU starring Zachary Levi and Asher Angel. Fans of Marvel can then get a rundown of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly.
The article also features 65, a new sci-fi film starring Adam Driver and Ariana Greenblatt that Chachowski calls “equal parts Planet of the Apes as it is Jurassic Park” and states that the film “punctuates its exciting action with some added horror elements.” Scream VI, the new release from the Scream franchise, is also featured in the article and offers spring theatre-goers another horror-action option.
Other films included in the new release section of the Wealth of Geeks article include the comedy-horror Cocaine Bear, the new dramatic comedy Moving On starring Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda along with two sports films, Creed III and Champions. The psychosocial thriller Inside starring William Dafoe also made the list.
Subsequently, the article alerts readers about movies that are expected to depart from theatres shortly. This roster encompasses a diverse array of film genres, spanning from action-comedy to horror to biographical drama.
First on their list of notable movies is Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre, the latest action comedy from Guy Ritchie starring Jason Statham, Aubrey Plaza, Josh Hartnett and Hugh Grant. Magic Mike’s Last Dance starring Channing Tatum and Salma Hayek is also featured along with Jesus Revolution starring Kelsey Grammer and Jonathan Roumie, both films drawing lukewarm reviews from critics.
Other notable films on the list include M. Night Shyamalan’s Knock at the Cabin, a mystery-horror that Chachowski calls “one of Shyamalan’s better films in the grand scheme of his career.” Also featured is the sports comedy 80 for Brady starring Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Sally Field and Rita Moreno, and the British biographical drama Emily, which offers a portrait of writer Emily Bronte.
