Hello friends it is April! Which means love is in the air. Or pollen. It really means pollen is in the air. And what better way to welcome the sweet embrace of spring then by revamping our On Demand Weekly Movie On Demand Preview. Starting now I will be counting down my top five films of the month. Because we're all aware five is better than three, and I know your affinity for lists. So let's do this team! Pass the Nasonex and let's get watching.
 
 

5. THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG, Premieres April 8
Tolkien's masterpiece continues with Bilbo bumbling amidst gold coins, angry elves with flaxen hair, Cumberbatch's sultry dragon voice, Gandalf crushing it, and surprisingly sexy dwarfs.
PG-13, Fantasy/Adventure, Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Cate Blanchett, Lee Pace, Luke Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch

4. THE NUT JOB, Premieres April 15 FAMILY PICK OF THE MONTH
Our animated family fun option that follows an exiled squirrel on a precarious nut store raid. A great film to watch with your kids or by yourself if, you know, you're into that sort of thing.
PG, Animated/Comedy, Will Arnett, Liam Neeson, Brendan Fraser, Katherine Heigl, Maya Rudolph

3. ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES, Premieres April 1
Ron Burgundy and the gang are back for extended shenanigans, and if you're the type that yearns for even more crass hilarity there will be an unedited version of this film available. You stay classy San Diego!
PG-13/TV-MA, Comedy, Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Jim Carrey, Christina Applegate, David Koechner

2. JOE, Premieres April 11 - INDIE PICK OF THE MONTH
Our indie pick of the month starring the kooky crazy Nic Cage as an ex con on the hard road to redemption. If you're looking for dark, visceral, independent, and full of the cage, look no further!
R, Drama, Nicolas Cage, Tye Sheridan - Same Day As Theatrical

1. THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY, Premieres April 29
WALTER MITTY is brought to you by Ben Stiller who directed the film as well as stars as the aforementioned Mr. Mitty. A daydreamer by nature Walter escapes his dull reality by creating vast fantasy worlds filled with heroism, action, and romance. However, when his reality is threatened Walter takes matters into his own hands and embarks on a life changing adventure that is more rewarding than any fantasy he could create in his mind. WALTER MITTY is an amazing feel good film brimming with imagination and heart.
PG, Adventure/Comedy/Drama, Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig, Jon Daly, Kathryn Hahn

There you have it team! On Demand Weekly's top five films for April. I hope you enjoyed that we're jumping on the list bandwagon, and if you didn't, well, we'll send you a puppy. Disclaimer: we will not send you a puppy.
