By
'Titanic' still
This month will see cinemas packed with an eclectic mix of films, ranging from "super movies" such as Battleship and The Avengers to James Cameron's 3D re-release of Titanic. There's even gold to be found in smaller-budgeted flicks, like acclaimed Scandinavian thriller Headhunters and the Joss Whedon-produced horror The Cabin in the Woods.

Digital Spy previews five must-see movies for April below:

Headhunters

Release Date: April 6
Why you should see it: Scandinavia is a currently a hotbed of top-class film and TV entertainment, with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Killing and Borgen all finding audiences beyond their homeland. Headhunters, based on Jo Nesbo's acclaimed novel, features Game of Thrones's Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in a suspense-packed story involving an art thief and the biggest heist of his career.


Titanic 3D

Release Date: April 6
Why you should see it: James Cameron's romantic epic gets a 3D makeover for the 100th anniversary of Titanic's tragic maiden voyage. It's startling how young Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet look, and just how much you get swept along with it all - from the underwater dive with Bill Paxton to the touching love story and breathtaking sinking. This is proper, widescreen moviemaking and must be seen on the big screen.


Battleship

Release Date: April 11
Why you should see it: Rihanna makes her screen debut in Peter Berg's naval blockbuster, which brings an alien twist to Hasbro's classic board game. It's Transformers meets Top Gun, as epic spectacle blends with military bravado. Taylor Kitsch, Liam Neeson, Brooklyn Decker and Alexander Skarsgård are among the supporting cast.


The Cabin in the Woods

Release Date: April 13
Why you should see it: This long-delayed film from Buffy and Angel duo Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard spins the horror genre on its head as a group of college kids get more than they bargain for when they head off to a remote cabin. It's best to go into Cabin knowing as little as possible, because the surprise twists and turns give it impact. It's smart, witty and incredibly inventive.


The Avengers

Release Date: April 26
Why you should see it: Marvel brings together its biggest superheroes as Tom Hiddleston's Thor villain Loki assembles an alien army to wreak havoc on the world. Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) are among the comic book characters who'll have to put their differences aside to save the world. We can't wait!
