You may have settled back into the rhythm of school after break, but you know you’ll still need a break every once in a while. Venture into Boston for a movie! Here’s what is happening and about to happen in the movie world.

Divergent (released 3/21)

Although this movie has been hyped up by almost everyone, initial reviews haven't been so hot. Based on a young adult science fantasy book series, think of this movie as The Hunger Games’ awkward younger sibling.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (released 4/4)
If this is your kind of thing then I feel like you probably know all about it already. This is the sequel to “Captain America: The First Avenger”, which was received very well by audiences. In this new movie, Captain America is just trying to lay low and live a chill life when, of course, disaster strikes and he has to save the world. Again. Does this stuff ever end?

Island of Lemurs: Madagascar (released 4/4)
I know what you’re thinking. Finally, they made a Madagascar movie revolving around only the best characters—the lemurs. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on whether or not you are a glass half-empty or half-full kind of person), this is a documentary about the real lemurs of Madagascar. Watch the trailer and see if it’s for you. It’s pretty damn cute.

Transcendence (released 4/17)
If you loved Her, see this movie. Another big blockbuster about the power of technology and its seemingly limitless reach, Transcendence is sure to make you question our dependence on technology as a society.
