March will bring one of the most anticipated movies of the year to the big screen, along with a few horror movies, adventure movies, and lesser-known titles with plenty of potential. Although the coronavirus pandemic is not yet over, cinemas around the world continue to be open and operating as normal, while studios release some of the films that had to be delayed due to the pandemic.

Even though February is a short month, it has seen a variety of films hit theaters, including Roland Emmerich’s latest disaster movie moon fallthe return of Johnny Knoxville and company in Fooled foreverby Kenneth Branagh Death on the Nilemusical romantic comedy Marry me (also available to stream on Peacock), the action movie Unexploredand horror comedy Workshop 666, featuring none other than the Foo Fighters. February also saw lesser-known projects arrive in cinemas, such as the horror film The long nightthe action movie Black lightand black comedy big golden brick.
March won’t see too many movies hitting theaters, but it will finally see the newest release Batman film, a few horror films with very interesting premise and different visual styles, and lesser-known projects many of which will premiere at the South by Southwest film festival.
