We’re just about out of the awards season for another year, and whether or not you agree with the deserved winners or losers, it’s time to look forward to the new films gracing our screens for the foreseeable future. So here at Inside Media Track, we’ve selected a mix of murder, aliens, cars and superheroes in our pick of our five films to catch this March:
Wes Anderson‘s new film sees a wealth of cast with a mix of well-known faces from his previous movies with a hint of new talent. Lead by Ralph Fiennes who plays Gustave, a hotel concierge who battles to prove his innocence after a murder shocks the residents at the titular hotel. With Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Tilda Swinton and Saoirse Ronan, this looks as Anderson-esque as ever with his quirky comedy and styled nostalgia that has become his most staple directing style.
Written by John Gatins, the man behind Real Steel and Flight, and taken from the popular computer game of the same name, this hopes to attempt to win over sceptics who hold video games can’t make good movies. Set on a mission of revenge from being released from unjustly prison, lead character Tobey (played by Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul) races across the nation in a film of speed packed racing action. Dominic Cooper and Michael Keaton also star.
First of Scarlett Johansson‘s major movies this month sees her play an alien seductress named Isserley, sent to Earth to feed and prey upon unaware hitch hikers in rural Scotland. Already a divisive film and based upon a best-selling novel, this looks to send a message of satire, identity and the state of the world, all amongst a creepy dark sci-fi story. With the director already making British thriller Sexy Beast, this should be a promising independent film with an underlying and affective theme.
Jason Reitman seems to never put a foot wrong with movies such as Juno, Up In The Air and Young Adult, and his new movie starring Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet looks to keep that good run going. Taken from a novel, the story follows a depressed single mum who happens to form a relationship with an escaped convict wanted for the murder of his family. As a director who tackles family values, this looks to be a film with immense poignancy and message, given it’s two central main actors.
Steve Rogers’ red, white and blue spangled hero returns in the follow-up to First Avenger and continues the Marvel cinematic universe following Avengers Assemble. Chris Evans, together with Agent Romanov (Scarlett Johansson) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), sets out to take down a hidden enemy deep in the workings of Washington D.C., not to similar to the Captain himself in the form of the brainwashed Winter Soldier. Continuing the Marvel grand scope of superhero action, this looks to further bridge the gap of Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World in preparation for the next Avengers outing.
