The 10 Biggest Movies of March 2015

March is generally a slow month for movies, and this one is no different. That doesn’t mean there aren’t some intriguing new releases to tide us over until the early summer blockbusters though.

If you’re heading to the cinema this month, consider checking out these 10 movies:

1. Chappie

Release Date: March 6

Neill Blomkamp lost a bit of his wunderkind status after Elysium failed to live up to the potential we saw in District 9, but he’s still one of the freshest voices in modern sci-fi. His next film explores AI and robotics, following a mechanized police-bot that’s given sentience. In addition to Sharlto Copley as CHAPPiE the robot, the film also stars Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver, and Hugh Jackman.

2. Unfinished Business

Release Date: March 6

Vince Vaughn, Tom Wilksinson, and Dave Franco star in this comedy about a team of businessmen who travel to Europe to close a huge deal. Shenanigans ensue. There’s nothing (that we know of) too crazy outside of that setup, and overall it sounds like a pretty par-for-the-course Vince Vaughn movie, so you probably already know if that’s the sort of thing you go for or not.

3. Cinderella

Release Date: March 13

Disney reimagines the classic story as a live-action family drama. Thor‘s Kenneth Branagh directs, with Lily James, Hayley Atwell, and Helena Bonham Carter starring.

4. Run All Night

Release Date: March 13

Why Liam Neeson seems obsessed with grizzled, brooding action heroes is anyone’s guess, but he’s a damn good fit for the part. Run All Night is the latest in the Neeson-action subgenre, following an aging hitman who must take on his former boss to protect his family. Sounds like there will be plenty of shades of Taken for anyone who just can’t get enough of Oskar Schindler punching people.

5. It Follows

Release Date: March 13

It Follows take the horror genre’s fascination with sex to its logical extreme, imparting an actual curse on some horny teenagers. The film wowed critics and audiences at Cannes last year, many of whom raved about its scares and thought-provoking ideas in equal measure. If you see one horror movie in March, make it this one.
