With Dune: Part Two dominating the big screen in March, most of the other new movies coming out — especially major releases — are pushed to the tail end of the month. As far as blockbuster releases, we have Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire (March 22) and Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire (March 29). Can the Ghostbusters reboot sequel escape the cloying fan service of the first one? Will Godzilla x Kong be able to stand strong against the monumental artistry of Japan’s Godzilla Minus One? We’ll have to watch and find out!

For some family-friendly fare, there’s the much-anticipated Kung Fu Panda 4 (March 8). It’s been eight years since the last film and much of the cast is back, including Jack Black in the lead role, with new additions Awkwafina and Viola Davis. Disney is also releasing the critically acclaimed 2021 film Luca in theatres (March 22) for the first time. 


If you want to get scared, your best bet is Imaginary (March 8), a PG-13 horror film about a woman who returns to her childhood home to discover that the imaginary friend she left behind — a teddy bear — is very real and unhappy that she abandoned him.

Two festival hits that have some genre-adjacent vibes — Love Lies Bleeding (March 15) and Riddle of Fire (March 22) — also hit the big screen this month. Fresh off its release at Sundance, Love Lies Bleeding is best described as the “lesbian bodybuilder revenge film” starring Kristen Stewart and Katy O’Brian. It was directed by Rose Glass, whose feature debut Saint Maud was a beguiling and haunting horror film about religious obsession. Riddle of Fire premiered last year as part of TIFF’s Midnight Madness program and was an instant fan favourite. It’s a comedy adventure about three mischievous kids who embark on a woodland odyssey when their mother sends them on an errand.

Director Michael Mohan’s erotic thriller The Voyeurs, set in Montreal, flew under the radar when it was released during the pandemic, but it was one of the unexpected cinematic highlights of 2021.

About Dry Grasses (March 8), the latest film from Turkish auteur Nuri Bilge Ceylan, screened last year as part of the Festival du Nouveau Cinéma and became an instant favourite. Now that it has a wider theatrical release, we encourage you to check out one of the best films of recent years on the big screen — a film about platitudes, inaction and entitlement that feels extremely of the moment.
