The Strangers: Prey at Night (March 9)

Exactly 10 years later, we’ve finally received a sequel to the popular home invasion film, The Strangers. This entry sees a family being terrorized by the same creepy masked people from the original while stopped for the night at a mobile home park. The trailer alone is all kinds of terrifying, and will definitely fill your campy horror needs for the month.

Thoroughbreds (March 9)

I was lucky enough to see an early screening of this one a week ago, and it’s definitely worth the watch! Hailed as Heathers meets American Psycho, the film follows two very unlikely childhood friends, Amanda and Lily, who rekindle their odd relationship as teens. In an unlikely turn of events, this causes them to hatch a plot to murder Lily’s unlikeable step-father. The film also stars Anton Yelchin, in one of the very last roles he filmed, as their unsuspecting hitman-for-hire.

Pacific Rim: Uprising (March 23)

The much anticipated sequel to the 2013 sci-fi monster flick gives us John Boyega as Idris Elba’s son, because someone has been reading my diary. Anyway, the film takes place 10 years after the events of the original, and the monsters have returned to fight back. Jake Pentecost (Boyega) rises up to fight againt the corrupt world and save the human race from extinction. This one’s sure to have a butt-ton of action and amazing effects, plus a pretty groovy soundtrack.

Unsane (March 23)

Claire Foy is a queen (no, like literally), so I’m pumped to see her in this thriller. A simple story of a woman trying to evade a stalker takes a truly chilling turn when she is involuntarily committed to a mental institution and told her stalker does not exist. This thriller comes to us courtesy of Steven Soderbergh, and was shot COMPLETELY on an iPhone.

I Kill Giants (March 23)

Based on the critically-acclaimed graphic novel, the story follows Barbara Thorson, a teenage girl who doesn’t ~quite~ fit in with her peers. So, to deal with her bullied reality and troubled home life, she escapes into her own magical world where she, you guessed it, kills giants. However, with the help of her new friend, Sophia, and an understanding guidance counselor, she may not have to face EVERY giant alone.

Ready Player One (March 30)

Yet ANOTHER one based on a comically popular book, the newest film on the Steven Spielberg slate takes place in a dystopian future, in which the only escape is to a virtual world called “The Oasis.” When the creator of this virtual utopia dies, he leaves behind a video, challenging players of the game to find and easter egg he has hidden, which promises a massive fortune to whoever finds it first.

Acrimony (March 30)

I’m not a complicated woman. If Taraji P. Henson is in it, I’ll see it. Melinda (Henson) is a dutiful, faithful wife who is finally tired of standing by her cheating husband. Why any man in their right mind would doube-cross her, I do not know. Plus, with a tagline like “Hell hath no fury,” you know we’re in for a tale about sweet, righteous vengeance, so sign me up right now.
