This Month’s Highlights

A Quiet Place

Before Bird Box, in which Sandra Bullock couldn’t look at the monsters, or Netflix’s upcoming The Silence, in which, uh, the monsters rely on sound, there was The Quiet Place, the first, and probably best, movie of this trend to be released. Directed by John Krasinski and starring him and his wife, Emily Blunt, the movie is gripping from the start, full of twists, turns, and nails in the stairwell. By the end of it, you’ll realize you’ve barely exhaled at all. Arrives April 2.


When Vulture recently ranked all 19 Tim Burton movies, this twisted 1988 classic came in at No. 3, and with good reason. As we wrote, the movie’s “light and slapsticky in a way that’s charming and accessible, but creepy and startling when you least expect it.” Plus, consider the heavy-hitting cast: Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, and Winona Ryder, all in one place? Sold. It’s the perfect movie to watch this month as you ignore Burton’s not-great-looking current theatrical release Dumbo. Arrives April 1.
