London Has Fallen


Scheduled release: March 3rd
Director: Babak Najafi
Cast: Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman

Having saved the President of the United States (Aaron Eckhart) in Olympus Has Fallen, Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) will be called upon once again to protect the most powerful man in the world and other heads of states, as a visit to London to attend the British Prime Minister’s funeral goes horribly awry. Explosions, over-the-top action and brutal trash talking will overrule the logic-defying plot, but it’s all worth it to see Butler kick-ass once again.

The Brothers Grimsby


Scheduled release: March 10th
Director: Louis Leterrier
Cast: Sacha Baron Cohen, Mark Strong, Isla Fisher

Known for his ability to embody strange characters in comedies such as The Dictator, Bruno and Borat, Sacha Baron Cohen’s next transformation sees him stepping into the role of Carl Butcher, a football hooligan with a horrible haircut and hillbilly mannerisms. Reuniting with this brother Sebastian (Mark Strong), a secret agent and top assassin, Carl must prove his worth and do his part to save the world as best he can, even if he fumbles and makes a fool of himself while doing so.

Hail, Caesar!


Scheduled release: March 10th
Director: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen
Cast: Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes

The Coen brothers, responsible for thought-provoking films such as No Country For Old Men and Burn After Reading, show a different side to Hollywood in their latest effort. Set in the 1950s, this movie explores the narcissism, diva behaviors and strange antics surrounding the stars of that time. It’s up to Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) to set the actors straight and protect the interests of the movie studio, using unconventional means and underhand tactics.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice


Scheduled release: March 24th
Director: Zack Snyder
Cast: Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot

The much-awaited superhero movie that pits Batman (Ben Affleck) against Superman (Henry Cavill) is finally here. Gotham’s dark knight, a distrusting vigilante who sees no redeeming qualities in Superman, decides to take him on to keep the world in check. It’s a battle of strength and wits, and as a new villain emerges in the form of Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg), the fate of the world hangs in the balance more than ever.

Expect cameos by other superheroes like Wonder Woman, Aquaman and The Flash, as preparations for a two-part Justice League movie sequel are now well underway.
