It’s time to vote for April’s Movie of the Month! As has become tradition, for April we like to celebrate movie franchises, and this year is no different, except in the ways that it is. At the request of some of this year’s franchise champions we’ve widened the definition of a franchise, so amongst this year’s picks we have a loose thematic trilogy made by the same animation studio, a franchise of just two films sharing one character, and a sci-fi classic alongside three of its remakes. The poll is at the bottom of the page, but first here are the options:

Invasion of the Body Snatchers & its remakes [Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), Body Snatchers (1993), Invasion (2007)] [Howard Casner, Rantings and Ravings & Pop Art]
