Baka Bukas

Release date: March 1

Originally an entry in the 2016 Cinema One Originals festival, Baka Bukas stars Jasmine Curtis-Smith as Alex, who harbors unresolved feelings for her best friend (Louise delos Reyes). The film nabbed a number of awards at the festival, including Audience Choice and Best Actress.

 

 

Logan

Release date: March 1

Set 50 years after the events of Days of Future Past, a much-older Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is now caring for a weakened and vulnerable Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart). His life of solitude is interrupted at the arrival of a murderous criminal (Boyd Holbrook) hellbent on eradicating all remaining mutants. Logan is reportedly the last stand-alone Wolverine movie starring Jackman.

 

 

T2 Trainspotting

Release date: March 1

Danny Boyle's 1996 cult classic has a sequel, and it looks just as exciting and promising. The new film reunites the original ensemble cast (Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, and Kelly Macdonald) in a nostalgic return set 20 years later.

 

 

Kong: Skull Island

Release date: March 9

A team of explorers venture deep inside a primordial and uncharted island, only to stumble upon the mythic king of the apes...among other terrifying monsters. The movie features a stellar cast that includes Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, and John C. Reilly.

 

 

Get Out

Release date: March 15

Comedian Jordan Peele ventures into filmmaking with a clever horror film that puts a sharply funny and racially charged twist on the genre. Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) is all set to meet his girlfriend's (Allison Williams) parents for the weekend; it turns out he's in for way more than he bargained for. The film initially premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and has been gaining plenty of critical acclaim ever since.

 

 

2 Cool 2 Be 4gotten

Release date: March 15

Set in the late '90s, Khalil Ramos plays a high school overachiever who doesn't quite fit in. Everything changes—and dangerously escalates—when he makes friends with two half-American transfer students (Ethan Salvador and Jameson Blake). The Cinema One Originals entry took home the prize for Best Picture, Best Cinematography, and Best Supporting Actor.

 

 

Beauty and the Beast

Release date: March 16

Power Rangers

Lionsgate capitalizes on the trendy '90s nostalgia with a new reboot of the beloved, teen sci-fi franchise.

Life

Release date: March 24

Life revolves around a six-member space crew on the verge of a massive scientific discovery: the first evidence of extraterrestrial life on Mars.

Ghost in the Shell

Release date: March 29

Scarlett Johansson stars in this sci-fi crime drama adapted from a Japanese manga and directed by Rupert Sanders. Johannson plays a cyborg policewoman who must take down a nefarious computer hacker.
