Oh yes, hibernation is done and we can breathe again. Time to celebrate by shedding our coats, shopping for airy spring fashion, and heading straight to the movies! Don’t wait for summer blockbusters only to find there’s nothing that grabs you.

Here you are: the 9 movies we’re waiting to see.
KILL ME THREE TIMES

Agent Leo Demidov (played by Tom Hardy) must investigate a series of gruesome child murders during the time of Stalin’s Soviet Union. Paranoia and secret police were commonplace along with the “there is no crime” philosophy of the day and you’ll find plenty of it here.

THE AGE OF ADALINE
Forever young Adaline (played by Blake Lively) is a woman who has stayed 29 years old for the past 80 years. Only one person knows her secret, her elderly daughter. When Adaline allows herself to finally find romance after all the years, her secret is at risk of being discovered.
