Ready Player One, Isle of Dogs, Love, Simon and all of the movies you need to see in theatres this March

Spring is almost here!

With Spring comes a new slate of movies to watch in March. Some of them we'll bet you've been highly anticipating, such as A Wrinkle in Time or Ready Player One, while others may have only recently entered your radar, like Unsane or Love, Simon

Whether you already know it or not, there's tons to watch in March, and we're here with our recommendations below!


Red Sparrow

Release Date: March 2nd, 2018

For Fans of: Jennifer Lawrence, Russian accents, cool spy thrillers

See it with: A friend

An all-star cast joins Jennifer Lawrence, giving us her best Russian accent as ballerina-turned-secret agent Dominika Egorova. This film looks a little like the 2018 version of Atomic Blonde, but with a cast including Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker, and Jeremy Irons, we're here for it! Plus, early reviews have lauded the film for its twists and turns, which hints that this has the makings of a classic spy thriller.


The Party (Limited)

Release Date: March 2nd, 2018

For Fans of: Black and white movies, dinner parties, British films

See it with: Your mom

For something lighthearted and fun at the movies this month, check out Sally Potter's latest, The Party. Featuring a fantastic cast including Patricia Clarkson, Timothy Spall, Kristen Scott Thomas, Cillian Murphy and Emily Mortimer, the film is shot in black and white, and tells the story of a dinner party that descends into utter chaos. It looks to be a little different from the usual, and when critics are excited, so are we!


A Wrinkle in Time

Release Date: March 9th, 2018

For Fans of: The book, Oprah, Time travel

See it with: ​Your family

We've been patiently waiting for Ava DuVernay's adaptation of the popular children's book, A Wrinkle in Time. The cast is stellar: Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and OPRAH. Based on the trailers, we know this will be colourful and visually stunning. The story follows Meg, her brother, and her friend who must work with three magical beings to save her father from a terrible evil, which is a result of his time traveling discovery.


Thoroughbreds

Release Date: March 9th, 2018

For Fans of: Dark comedies, suburbia, murder

See it with: ​Friends

Anya Taylor-Joy and Olivia Cooke star as two suburban girls who rekindle their friendship after growing apart. Lily (Taylor-Joy) is highly emotional while Amanda (Cooke) feels nothing. Their differences work well together when they hitch a plan to kill Lily's hated stepfather. Thoroughbreds is being called a cross between American Psycho and Heathers, and if it's like either of those movies in any way, it's going to be awesome. 


Meditation Park (Limited)

Release Date: March 9th, 2018

For Fans of: Sandra Oh, Canadian Film, mother/daughter stories

See it with: Your mom

We don't often get to see authentic mother/daughter relationships on the big screen (which is part of what made Lady Bird so beloved), but we especially don't get to see many Asian experiences in theatres. Meditation Park is an ode to Asian mothers and daughters. Here we follow Maria, a devout wife who is forced to reassess her life after finding another woman's underwear in her husband's laundry. Sandra Oh plays her daughter, and we follow Maria on her awakening journey as not just a mother and wife, but as a woman. 


Love, Simon

Release Date: March 16th, 2018

For Fans of: LGBT stories, romance, coming-of-age

See it with: ​A friend

We've seen a lot of great LGBT films over the last few years, but we can't think of any that were made specifically about teens, for teens, with this as the central plot focus. That's why we're so pumped for Love, Simon, which focuses on Simon Spier (Nick Robinson), a teenager whose life seems relatively normal, except for the secret that he's been keeping, the fact that he is gay. Based on the popular teen fiction novel "Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda", Love, Simon doesn't just look like it'll be a great movie, it'll also be an important one. 


Unsane 

Release Date: March 23rd, 2018

For Fans of: iPhones, horror, Claire Foy

See it with: A date 

Steven Soderbergh is constantly in and out of retirement (he keeps saying each movie will be his last), but we're happy he's back with this insane-looking psychological thriller, which he shot on iPhone. Unsane stars Claire Foy as a woman who has been committed to a mental institution and can't tell if her reality is real, or just a delusion.


Isle of Dogs

Release Date: March 23rd, 2018

For Fans of: dogs, stop-motion animation, Wes Anderson

See it with: friends

Wes Anderson is back with another stop-motion animated film, and if it's anywhere near as good as Fantastic Mr. Fox, we're all in for a treat. We don't know too much about the plot for Isle of Dogs, except that it is set in Japan and that it follows a boy who is searching for his dog. We do know that despite the fact that it's animated, this isn't exactly a children's film. The voice cast includes Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton, Scarlett Johansson, and more, and with that much talent involved it's bound to be memorable.


Ready Player One

Release Date: March 30th, 2018

For Fans of: The book, virtual reality, Steven Spielberg

See it with: your nerd friends

Whether you're a fan of the book or not, Ready Player One looks like it will be the movie event of this Spring. Steven Spielberg directs this film set inside a virtual world that is filled with pop culture references. When the creator of a VR world called the Oasis dies, he challenges his users to find an easter egg that will lead to inheriting his fortune. The film stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, and your favourite person from Black Panther, Letitia Wright.
