4-20 releases that will blow everyone away
On April 20, marijuana users the world over will gather in their masses to celebrate their beloved herb, whether it's legal to do so or not. In the U.K., thousands descend on London's famous Hyde Park to smoke it up in protest of the country's anti-pot laws, and in Paris, weed-themed treasure hunts have been known to take place across the city.
The real reason this date became the unofficial stoner's holiday is a little hazy (some say it's derived from a U.S. penal code, while others believe the term 4-20 was actually coined by a group of American students in the '70s), but it's now so ingrained in popular culture that movie studios, record labels, game developers and even comic book publishers love to take advantage of it. If you're a fan of any of the aforementioned mediums, then mark April 20, 2018 in your calendar, because there's a ton of cool new stuff coming out that day.
From Hollywood blockbusters and video game reboots to albums we've been waiting decades to hear, here are the releases you can't afford to miss this 4-20.
