March is set to be a great month for movies as there are some great and exciting films on the horizon.
So what will you be watching over the next few weeks? We take a look at some of the movie that are absolutely not to be missed.
- Stoker (1st March)
Stoker is the movie that I am most looking forward to this week as I am a big fan of Mia Wasikowska.
Stoker promises to be a dark and somewhat twisted film as Chan-wook Park makes his English speaking directorial debut.
Park has been behind films like Oldboy and so it is easy to understand why I am more than a little excited.
Wasikowska is joined on the cast list by Matthew Goode and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman.
The movie also marks the first outing as screenwriter for Wentworth Miller as he has penned the screenplay.
After India's (Wasikowska's) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother (Kidman).
Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him.
- Oz The Great and Powerful (8th March)
The movie I see of Oz The Great and Powerful the more I am excited about it as it looks like it is going to be a treat of an adventure.
Sam Raimi is at the helm of the film for what is his project since Drag Me To Hell.
This film is a prequel to the much love Wizard of Oz and it has been just over seventy years since we went to Oz for the very first time.
Raimi reunites with leading man James Franco while Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Mila Kunis are all on the cast list.
A small-time magician with dubious ethics is hurled off to an enchanting land, where he encounters three witches, as well as the opportunity to transform himself into a great wizard -- and an even greater man.
- Welcome To The Punch (15th March)
2012 was a great year for British movies and that looks set to continue as Welcome To The Punch is one of the early films not to miss.
The movie is the second feature film for Eran Creevy and he has also penned the script.
James McAvoy and Mark Strong lead the cast and are two men on either side of the law.
David Morrissey, Andrea Riseborough, Peter Mullan and Daniel Mays are also on the cast list to complete a great line-up.
Ex-criminal Jacob Sternwood (Strong) is forced to return to London when his son is involved in a heist gone wrong.
This gives his nemesis, detective Max Lewinsky (McAvoy), one last chance to catch the man he’s always been after.
- G.I. Joe: Retaliation (27th March)
G.I. Joe: Retaliation is the event film not to miss this March, a film that comes four years after Rise of the Cobra.
This time around Jon M Chu is in the director's chair but Channing Tatum is the big name returning.
The film promises to be a lot of high octane fun and the action is going to be driven by Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis.
It is uncertain how well this film will do after the first film struggled and this project has been plagued by delays. But the trailer promises much as it looks set to be a action fuelled ride.
In this sequel, the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra; they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence.
- Trance (27th March)
Danny Boyle is one of this country's greatest directors and he is back in the chair this month with Trance.
Trance is the first film for Boyle since 127 Hours and it is great to see the Oscar winner back doing what he does best.
We haven't seen James McAvoy on the big screen of late and then two projects come along as this is hot on the heels of Welcome To The Punch.
- The Host (29th March)
Stephenie Meyer has had huge box office success with The Twilight Saga and now The Host is the latest of her novels to be adapted for the big screen.
There are some great sci-fi projects on the horizon this year and The Host is one of them as Andrew Niccol is at the helm of the film.
Saoirse Ronan takes on the central character of Melanie Stryder while Diane Kruger, William Hurt and Max Irons will all also star.
The Host is a riveting story about the survival of love and the human spirit in a time of war. Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy.
Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact. Most of humanity has succumbed.
Other films to watch out for this month include Parker, Robot & Frank, Side Effects and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.
