New on Redbox: All the Movies Coming in April

Movies Features Redbox

April is upon us, and you’d be a fool not to realize that a new month means new additions to all your favorite streaming services. That, of course, includes Redbox, the movie kiosk and digital VOD service known for its singular mix of blockbusters and bargain bin fodder. Below are all the Redbox additions worth taking note of this month.

As far as critically acclaimed fare is concerned, one of April’s most eye-catching additions is Vice, Adam McKay’s divisive Dick Cheney biopic built on a transformative performance from Christian Bale. The film split critics on its way to eight Oscar nominations, winning only one, but you can judge it for yourself via Redbox kiosks and VOD as of today, April 2. Other standouts in this vein are Joe Cornish’s unjustly overlooked Attack the Block follow-up The Kid Who Would Be King (coming to kiosks and VOD April 16), the swing-for-the-fences finale of M. Night Shyamalan’s Eastrail 177 trilogy, Glass (coming to kiosks and VOD April 16), the Transformers franchise broken clock that is acclaimed spinoff Bumblebee (in kiosks today, April 2), underrated horror hit Escape Room (coming to kiosks April 23), 2017 standout and epic Planet of the Apes trilogy capper War For The Planet of the Apes (available on demand as of yesterday, April 1), Clint Eastwood drug-smuggling drama The Mule (in kiosks and on VOD today, April 2) and Karyn Kusama’s Nicole Kidman-starring detective thriller Destroyer (coming to kiosks and VOD on April 23).

Now we come to the fun part: The aforementioned bargain bin picks, as opposed to the blockbusters. Redbox has a few of the wrong kind of standouts arriving in April—the kind of titles you expect to find in a vending machine, like cinematic potato chips. The arguable highlight of this category is, of course, The Man Who Killed Hitler and then the Bigfoot, an actually extant action-adventure film starring Sam Elliott as Calvin Barr, a man who killed Hitler and then the Bigfoot. We wouldn’t blame you for assuming the title is this film’s sole saving grace (although you’d be severely discounting Elliott in that scenario), but the film’s critical consensus is surprisingly positive, suggesting that The Man Who Killed Hitler and then the Bigfoot, available in kiosks as of today, April 2, may in fact deserve the benefit of the doubt. We’ll extend no such consideration, however, to Redbox’s other April lowlights, which, by all accounts, number among 2018’s lowest: winner of a pack-leading four Razzies (including Worst Picture) Holmes & Watson (in kiosks on April 9), starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly as the eponymous, iconic detective/doctor duo, and Welcome to Marwen (coming to kiosks and VOD on April 9), a rare Robert Zemeckis dud, starring Steve Carrell as an aspiring artist who confronts his real-world trauma by escaping into a miniature, World War II-era fantasy world.

See Redbox’s complete April slate below, and be advised that movies in the On Demand section may be available to rent, buy or both, depending on the title—more details here.
