New Movies Out Now in Theaters: What to See This Week

It’s not always easy to find out which movies are hitting theaters each week, especially after the Hollywood strikes led to many release date changes. With the WGA and actors strikes resolved and summer blockbusters starting to roll in, April is filled with both big budget flicks and new indie releases.

Premiering April 19 is Universal’s “Abigail,” a horror thriller about a young vampire ballerina who preys on a group of unsuspecting criminals starring Melissa Barrera, Dan Stevens, Alisha Weir and William Catlett. Also hitting theaters is “The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare,” a war-time action flick about a small group of highly skilled soldiers recruited by the British military to operate behind enemy lines during World War II starring Henry Cavill, Alan Ritchson, Alex Pettyfer and Eiza González. Two films getting limited releases this week are “The Coffee Table,” a horror comedy about a struggling couple who purchases a sinister piece of home decor, and “Villians Incorporated,” a comedy about a group of friends living in an abandoned grocery store who attempt to take over the world. Keep an eye out for Luca Guadagnino’s “Challengers” and “Boy Kills World” which both release next week.
