Spring is here, and with it means the chance to preview what’s coming this spring to the box office.

RELATED | Silver Petticoat’s Winter Box Office Preview

Since April is a little early for the summer box office releases, we again get an outcrop of smaller, indie dramas. Some of which look as if they’ll be golden entertainment. Among them are romances, big budgets extravaganzas, dramas and surprisingly, a good selection of period dramas. Apart from the smaller dramas, we also take a look at a few anticipated blockbusters!

Now that my most anticipated winter (or maybe the whole year!) release (Beauty and the Beast) has come and gone, I’m interested to see which of these new upcoming films will turn out to be good.

Below, we take a look at the films about to invade the box office in the next three months (April-June 2017).

Silver Petticoat’s 2017 Spring Box Office Preview

Sorted by release date (all of which are subject to change)

#1 The Case for Christ

Opens April 7 | Rated PG

From the writer of When Calls the Heart, comes an emotional drama about the investigative reporter, Lee Strobel.

#2 Gifted

Opens April 7, limited | Rated PG-13

Starring Chris Evans (sans his always A+ Captain America persona), this emotional drama looks to be one of his best roles yet. It’s about a man fighting to keep custody (and provide her an ordinary life) of his young niece who has a brilliant mind.

#3 Their Finest

Opens April 7, limited | Rated R

Though this one was slapped with an R-rating, this could be an interesting WWII period film. Plus it stars Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin and more!

#4 The Lost City of Z

Opens April 14, limited | Rated PG-13

This adventure period drama doubles as a biopic about explorer Percy Fawcett who disappeared while searching for a lost city in the 1920s. Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, and Sienna Miller star.

#5 A Quiet Passion

Opens April 14, limited | Rated PG-13

A drama about poet Emily Dickinson. Stars Cynthia Nixon, Jodhi May, and Jennifer Ehle.

#6 Queen of the Desert

Opens April 14 | Rated PG-13

Nicole Kidman plays Gertrude Bell, a writer and archaeologist living in the 1800s.

#7 The Promise

Opens April 21 | Rated PG-13

Christian Bale leads this romantic war drama that sets itself up as an “epic” story that features a love triangle.

#8 The Circle

Opens April 28 | Rated PG-13

Tom Hanks and Emma Watson co-star in this film, an adaptation of the popular dystopian novel by Dave Eggers.

#9 Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2

Opens May 5 | Rated PG-13

The first film in this Marvel-centric series is hilarious! Therefore despite its lack of period drama allure or indie status, I had to add it today.

#10 King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Opens May 12 | Rated PG-13

Guy Ritchie, who’s known for his “modern” remakes of Sherlock Holmes next tackles the King Arthur legend. A few of the talented cast members include Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Annabelle Wallis, Katie McGrath and Eric Bana.
