April’s New Releases: Movies
Like the leaves blooming on the trees, the film release schedule has bloomed back into life after a long, dark winter. April is jam-packed with fantastic films, so we’ll stop rambling and get to it!
The series that can’t settle on a name (after The Fast and The Furious, Fast and Furious and Fast Five, this one is just Furious) returns for a 7th round of high octane action. If you’ve ever seen a Fast and Furious film, you’ll know what to expect. It’s a fitting send-off to Paul Walker, who tragically died halfway through filming.
