Pet SemataryApril 5

When a young girl disturbs a withered burial ground for long lost fluffy friends, she’s overjoyed to find the animals returning to earth from their cold graves. But joy turns quickly to terror with the realization that, beneath frayed collars and rusted bells, each resurrected pet carries with them a terrible darkness. It’s been 30 years since the original adaptation of the Stephen King classic made its debut, and it’s about time to be terrified all over again.

High LifeApril 5

A father and his infant daughter are the last left alive on a lonely journey to the edge of our solar system as they hurtle towards infinity and the bottom of a black hole. A bleach-blonde Robert Pattinson is nearly unrecognizable in this Claire Denis-directed space thriller.

The Man Who Killed Don QuixoteApril 10

Terry Gilliam has spent 29 years chasing his elusive dream of adapting the epic Spanish novel Don Quixote, first published in the 1600s. Finally, that dream is about to come true. A film stuck in development hell (see the documentary Lost in La Mancha, which chronicles the horrendous first time he tried to make it), this loose adaptation of the original text tells the story of a man who believes himself to be Don Quixote, and the mad adventure that ensues.

StockholmApril 12

When a bank robbery turns into a classic case of Stockholm Syndrome, things get weird and wild. In this new dark comedy based on true events, Ethan Hawke continues his rise upwards, on an ascent that’s lasted his entire career.
