The Watch List: 10 Must-See March Releases
10 new releases worth watching this month.
1. Go, Joe!
G.I. Joe: Retaliation
Originally slated for release last summer, this action flick was pushed back to work in more Channing Tatum (People‘s Sexiest Man for 2012). A smart move, as it’s now hotly anticipated-despite being the sequel to a truly terrible movie. In theatres March 29.
2. Oxymoronic Horror Story
The Last Exorcism Part 2
Sure, the title makes no sense, but The Last Exorcism Part I was gripping, especially by tired “found footage” standards, so this sequel is worth a look. In theatres March 1.
4. American Swagger
If you think he’s a champion scowler now, wait until Tommy Lee Jones hits screens as American General Douglas MacArthur, who finds himself managing Japan’s transition to peacetime following the Second World War. In theatres March 8.
5. A Man of Action
Jason Statham is back-again-as a strong, mostly silent type charged with beating down baddies. This time, he’s a special-forces soldier who becomes involved in London’s criminal underworld. In theatres March 15.
7. Under Siege
Olympus Has Fallen
Ditching the romantic comedy genre to return to his bread and butter, Gerard Butler plays a Secret Service agent manhandling the safety of America when terrorists overrun the White House. Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) directs. In theatres March 22.
8. Turning to Stone
Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, Catherine Keener, Cloris Leachman and Emma Stone in an animated prehistoric comedy? And they say Christmas only comes once a year. In theatres March 22.
