A compiled list to help you weed out the good vs the bad to save your time, money and brain cells. A link to the trailer has been provided in the title.
Logan (March 3)
Set in the future, the story of Logan (Wolverine) continues with the introduction of a young girl with similar abilities. Could this be the creation of a new generation of X-Men?
The Shack (March 3)
Now this movie should be on the not to see list based on my dislike of the book of the same name (review available). The book and film are deeply rooted in religion and finding god. The film hosts a group of very well known actors and actresses including: Sam Worthington, Octavia Spencer, Radha Mitchell, Graham Greene II and even Tim McGraw. Though I will not being seeing this movie in theatres there is a nagging voice in the back of my mind to watch it to compare to the book. There are many of you who will want to see this to supply your addiction of sadness and inspiration so it will remain on the To see list.
Before I Fall (March 3)
Based on the novel of the same name the story is of a girl who seemingly has everything until one day, her only day, begins to repeat itself over and over no matter what she does. During this she realizing that her life may not be so perfect after all and she needs to make some serious changes before her time runs out.
Table 19 (March 3)
Regrettably I am putting this movie on the To see list! It pains me to do this but this seemingly predictable yet, what the heck is going on, movie is funny and full of predictable romantic comedy sap which we all can’t help but love. Based on the preview you would think this is a week long wedding adventure where everyone wears the same outfit every day, but somehow they manage to fit it into a weekend.
Headshot (March 3)
I must admit the beginning of the preview lost me fast as most film festival films don’t cut it for me, then suddenly everything changed and the preview turned into a pretty badass action film reminiscent of the Kill Bills. This may be worth a shot after all.
Kong: Skull Island (March 10)
Though I probably won’t ever see this movie, it is still slightly intriguing and may appeal to many of you. What is it about these Kong movies that keep us coming back? Starring Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John C. Reilly, Tom Wilkinson and John Goodman the film is full of familiar faces, but a movie we assume to be about Kong suddenly becomes about about an island full of giant monsters.
Kidnap (March 10)
Starring Halle Berry in this badass film about a mother who will stop at nothing to get her son back from a group of people who have kidnapped her son.
Brimstone (March 10)
Summary from Flixster “Wrongly accused of a crime she didn’t commit, a frontier woman turned fugitive is hunted by a vengeful preacher in the menacing inferno of the old American West.” Starring Dakota Fanning and based on the title we can only assume a little witch hunt may be on the agenda.
Beauty and the Beast (March 17)
The movie of all movies and the one I have been waiting months and months and months to see, as we all have. It will be a nightmare trying to get to this movie when it opens in theatres and fully expect an audience full of people singing and laughing and talking (I may talk during shows but not at the theatre, I’m not a total monster). I will definitely be trying to get the 18+ VIP theatre seats for this one.
T2: Trainspotting (March 17)
I’m sure I’ve seen the original but did not enjoy it enough to remember any of it. I know there are may of you looking forward to this one though. I hope it does the fas justice as I have no intention or desire of seeing this.
The Belko Experiment (March 17)
A disturbing movie about a corporation who turns their high rise into a social experiment. While the building is in lockdown a voice over the intercom advises that the works must follow their commands and kill other workers, if they do not, then the building will kill double of the first request themselves. Not a theatre movie but on par with one of those Netflix horror movie nights.
13 Minutes (Elser) (March 17)
Based on the true events of an ordinary man in 1939 who made an attempt to kill Hitler and stop him during his height of power.
Power Rangers (March 24)
Continuing with our childhood revamp we have a darker more badass version of Power Rangers! Who didn’t like Power Rangers?
Life (March 24)
Though I don’t mind some alien space movies, this one is very much a curiosity killed the cat movie and I’m not completely sold on it yet, though Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds do help.
CHiPs (March 24)
It pains me to have this on the TO see list. A movie adaptation of the tv series from the 70’s/80’s come a movie about two bad cops who are assigned to a case to uncover some dirty cops. Naturally the two are relatively incompetent and you all want to see this, you will laugh and then when the movie is over you will never discuss the movie or think of it again. A sort of defence mechanism for your brain to wipe it of such evils but who am I to deny you of some escape laughter?
Ghost In The Shell (March 31)
I never saw any of the original Ghost In The Shell stuff but the preview for this movie is breathtaking and amazing.
The Boss Baby (March 31)
Yet another animated film of forced laughter. We all know the movie is ridiculous and we will unfortunately laugh and we will all end up seeing it at some point so lets just get it over with so we can put it all behind us.
The Zookeeper’s Wife (March 31)
The amazing story of a real life wife and mother who used the family’s zoo as a way to save peoples lives during WWII. Really looking forward to this one.
