March Movie Releases

With the recent buzz and hype surrounding movie awards ceremonies, such as the Oscars, we think it has given people more incentive to go out and see a movie and this month, there are some fantastic new releases. Of course, we can’t wait to see the next (and last) instalment of John Wick, as he gets his revenge against the High Table.
By all reports, the second SHAZAM! movie is loved by older kids. Multi-award nominee, Women Talking, is a gripping drama must-see. Living is Bill Nighy’s newest performance and by all accounts, his best. Being huge Bill Nighy fans here, Living is definitely on our list to see. Pearl is the latest in the resurgence of slasher horror movies (we’ll skip that one, thanks!).
One Directioner’s and Louis Tomlinson fans will rejoice at the behind-the-scenes movie in Louis’s music career to date and we are sure Sam Neill fans will enjoy his latest movie, The Portable Door.
Thanks to Hoyts here is a quick overview of March’s movie releases and their release dates:
MARCH 16 – SHAZAM! Fury of the Gods 
Bestowed with the powers of the gods, Billy Batson and his fellow foster kids are still learning how to juggle teenage life with their adult superhero alter egos. When a vengeful trio of ancient gods arrives on Earth in search of the magic stolen from them long ago, Shazam and his allies get thrust into a battle for their superpowers, their lives, and the fate of the world. 
MARCH 16 – Living
Set in 1952 London, the film will follow Williams (Bill Nighy), a veteran civil servant, who has become a small cog in the bureaucracy of rebuilding post-WWII England. As endless paperwork piles up on his desk, he learns he has a fatal illness. Thus begins his quest to find some meaning to his seemingly grey, monotonous life before it slips away. He first attempts, with limited success, to throw himself into debauchery during a wild night in Brighton in the company of a bohemian writer he befriends there. Then, arriving back in London, he ignores family and work responsibilities for days on end. But soon he becomes intrigued by Margaret, a young co-worker in his office, who appears to exemplify exactly what life and living are – and what may so far have passed him by. As their friendship grows, she – inadvertently – shows him a way to face down his mortality; how to harness his years of experience and dedication into a final supreme effort to push through, against all odds, a modest, much-delayed project for children in a poor district of East London.
MARCH 16 – Women Talking 
This Oscar nominee for ‘Best Picture’ and ‘Best Adapted Screenplay’ and a stellar cast (Rooney Mara, Frances McDormand, Ben Whishaw, Claire Foy, Jessie Buckley, Sheila McCarthy), the story follows a group of women in an isolated Mennonite religious colony in Bolivia as they struggle to reconcile their faith with a string of sexual assaults committed by the colony’s men.
MARCH 16 – Pearl
Filmmaker Ti West returns with another chapter from the twisted world of X, in this astonishing follow-up to the year’s most acclaimed horror film. Trapped on her family’s isolated farm, Pearl must tend to her ailing father under the bitter and overbearing watch of her devout mother. Lusting for a glamorous life like she’s seen in the movies, Pearl’s ambitions, temptations, and repressions all collide, in the stunning, technicolor-inspired origin story of X’s iconic villain.
MARCH 22 – Louis Tomlinson: All of Those Voices 
All Of Those Voices takes a refreshingly raw and real look at Louis Tomlinson’s musical journey. Ditching the typical glossy sheen of celebrity documentaries, this film gives audiences an intimate and unvarnished view of Louis’ life and career. Through never-before-seen home movie footage and behind-the-scenes access to Louis’ sell-out 2022 World Tour, All Of Those Voices offers a unique perspective on what it’s like to be a musician in today’s fast-paced world.
MARCH 23 – John Wick: Chapter 4 
John Wick (Keanu Reeves) takes on his most lethal adversaries yet in the upcoming fourth instalment of the series. With the price on his head ever increasing, Wick takes his fight against the High Table global as he seeks out the most powerful players in the underworld, from New York to Paris to Osaka to Berlin.
MARCH 23 – The Portable Door 
With a star-studded cast featuring Sam Neill, Christoph Waltz, Rachel House and Miranda Otto, The Portable Door is the tale of two interns at a mysterious London firm who becomes steadily aware that their employers are anything but conventional. The charismatic villains who run the company are disrupting the world of magic by bringing modern corporate strategy to ancient magical practices. Based on the popular 7-part fantasy adventure series of novels by Tom Holt.
MARCH 30 – Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves 
A charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers undertake an epic heist to retrieve a lost relic, but things go dangerously awry when they run afoul of the wrong people. Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves brings the rich world and playful spirit of the legendary roleplaying game to the big screen in a hilarious and action-packed adventure.
