Coming Soon: March 2017

Well, the Oscars last weekend were exciting weren't they?!

Given the hullabaloo surrounding the Best Picture mix up, you'd be forgiven for wanting to go and see La La Land and Moonlight again in March (particularly the latter: it's been rolled out to 200+ more screens this week as a result of the win, so you have no excuse to miss seeing this absolute masterpiece) rather than seeing something new. However, March is full of absolute corkers. Other Oscar nominees are finally hitting UK screens this month, in the form of Elle (Best Actress nominee, Isabelle Huppert) and The Salesman (Best Foreign Film winner). There are also highly anticipated blockbusters - Logan, Kong: Skull Island, and Beauty and the Beast - a horror film that's taken the US by storm, Get Out, and the latest movie from Ben Wheatley, Free Fire (which I saw at the London Film Festival and can confirm is rollicking good fun).

There's truly something for everyone this month, so start planning those cinema trips now...

As ever, all films below are released in cinemas in March 2017 in the U.K.: some may have already opened abroad so if you're outside the U.K. then do check your local cinemas for film times and release dates.

Yet again I've struggled to keep my film recommendations for the month under 10, but never mind: there are way too many gems to miss in March!

I've already seen Trespass Against Us and Free Fire, and would heartily recommend both, and I already have my ticket booked for Beauty and the Beast so I'm already pretty pumped for March. Elle, Certain Women and Personal Shopper have been on my calendar for months too, so if I manage to catch them before the month is up I'll be happy!
