January and February have been good months for theatrical releases. While there hasn’t been an abundance of must see releases, we have gotten a pair of the best thrillers that I’ve seen in years with Split and Get Out. March is looking to be a pretty good month as well, so let’s see what’s hitting theaters..
Being the last time we see Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Sir Patrick Stewart as Professor X, this R-rated Marvel flick is shaping up to be gloriously bloody. Logan takes place many years after previous X-Men movie storylines where the titular character must protect a young girl who displays some interesting mutations… Check out the trailer below and go see it in theaters starting March 3rd.
Kong: Skull Island
Who doesn’t love King Kong? He’s a giant ape who is just trying to protect his home from pesky human invaders. In Skull Island we see a killer cast explore this previously unknown island that is home to not only our favorite giant primate, but also a plethora of other massive monsters. Kong: Skull Island will be in theaters on March 10th.
Beauty & The Beast
I’ll be honest here, I’ve got a thing for Emma Watson. But also, to be fair, Beauty and the Beast was one of my favorite Disney films when I was growing up. From the clips I’ve seen, they are staying quite close to the source material, but this one might be a disappointment if not done exactly right. We will find out on March 17th.
The Belko Experiment
The Saw movies were all good but they only tortured a handful of people at a time. So why not do a social experiment on an entire building full of people? That’s what is gonna happen in The Belko Experiment on March 17th.
Life is looking to be dangerously similar to Alien, but it has Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal so I will have to see it. Basic premise is this – we find life in space, then life in space turns scary. We’ll all be in for a big surprise on March 34th.
I have never seen the original CHiPS, but I am a big Dax Shepard fan, so you can bet that I’ll be in the theatre checking this one out. The trailers are looking pretty good, but who knows. I’m just hoping that Dax and Michael Pena can do for CHiPS what Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill did for 21 Jump Street. We shall see on March 34th.
Ghost in the Shell
Scarlet Johanssen staring in a live action remake of Ghost in the Shell? I am so in. Coming out at the very tail end of the month, on March 31st, we will finally get to see if anime can be brought to screen with live actors and cgi, or if it’s best left to the animators.
So what will you be seeing this month? Did we miss any in this list? Let us know in the comments below!
