Your must-see March movies that are ushering in the spring


The snow's thawed, the roads have cleared and a new movie season is dawning in Cineworld. As we welcome a (hopefully) less cold and chaotic spring, we're rounding up March's must-see releases that make it a wonderful month for film fans.

Peter Rabbit

Released 16th March

Beatrix Potter's beloved literary creation gets some contemporary zing courtesy of Annie director Will Gluck and a whole host of CGI creations. James Corden voices the wily Peter who is locked in a vegetable patch struggle with rabbit-hating farmer McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson). Margot Robbie and Aussie songstrel Sia are among the other A-listers lending their voices.

Tomb Raider

Released 16th March

Amazingly, it's been nearly 15 years since Angelina Jolie last bestrode the screen as Tomb Raider heroine Lara Croft. The time is therefore right to welcome a new incarnation, and we've got one in the form of The Danish Girl Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander. With a storyline that takes in missing fathers, remote islands and deadly, booby-trapped tombs, there's sure to be more than enough to keep both PlayStation die-hards and newbies happy.

A Wrinkle In Time

Released 23rd March

Diversity representation and gender equality are hot topics in Hollywood at the moment. Fuse them with an awe-inspiring sense of fantastical scale and a popular literary source courtesy of author Madeline L'Engle, and you have A Wrinkle In Time. Oscar-winning director of Selma, Ava DuVernay, marshals a superb cast for this inter-dimensional adventure, including Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine.

Pacific Rim Uprising

Released 23rd March

Put aside that evening blobbing out in front of the telly watching Robot Wars. The screen-filling spectacle of the Pacific Rim sequel is what you're after. Following on from Guillermo del Toro's 2013 robots v monsters smash, we've got Star Wars: The Last Jedi's John Boyega taking up the action mantle. Expect more magnificently destructive action as those towering jaegers once again go to war with the invading kaiju.


Released 23rd March

Famed director Steven Soderbergh famously 'unretired' himself last year with droll Channing Tatum comedy Logan Lucky. And the Ocean's Eleven filmmaker's creative streak continues with this iPhone-shot thriller, one featuring a standout performance from The Crown's Claire Foy. She plays a woman incarcerated in a mental facility seemingly against her will – but has she in fact gone mad?

Ready Player One

Released 29th March

The king of the popcorn blockbuster, Steven Spielberg, makes his return to the genre with this eye-widening virtual reality epic. It's the story of a deadly treasure hunt taking place within the extraordinary digital world of the OASIS, mashing up all kinds of nostalgic 1980s pop culture references that will have geeks punching the air. (Unlimited members: click here to book for your 3D advance screening on 19th March.)

Isle of Dogs

Released 30th March

It's been four years since we last greeted a Wes Anderson movie (that was 2014's Oscar-winning The Grand Budapest Hotel). Now, the delightfully inventive storyteller is back with a dazzlingly animated stop-motion adventure akin to his Fantastic Mr. Fox, one that celebrates the enduring relationship between man and canine amidst a striking dystopian Japanese backdrop. Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum and Greta Gerwig are among the voice cast.


Released 30th March

One of Britain's finest actors, Paddy Considine, steps back behind the camera for the first time since 2011's Tyrannosaur with this moving drama. He plays a boxer who suffers an unexpected head injury, with new Doctor Who Jodie Whitaker playing the devoted wife who aids his rehabilitation. Expect powerful performances and more than a few tears.
