New Movies To Watch This Mar 2017
Logan (Mar 3rd)
Summer 2017 blockbusters start coming out in March, apparently. It's one huge movie after another, starting out with "Logan," the third and final film in the solo Wolverine trilogy that spun "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and "The Wolverine." It is also (as of now) the official departure of Hugh Jackman in the franchise, which probably means we won't get to see Wolverine in any live-action X-Men project in the near future, as the producers will surely want to give the character a rest.
Kong: Skull Island (Mar 10th)
"Kong: Skull Island" is both a reboot and a sequel. It is a franchise reboot for the beloved monster King Kong, who was last seen in 2005's "King Kong" movie directed by Peter Jackson. It is also, strangely, a sequel to 2014's "Godzilla," who is a monster whose story had no previous connection to King Kong, but now it will. This is something that Legendary Studios has been calling the "Godzilla-Kong Film Series," which will culminate in a "Godzilla vs. Kong" film in 2020. Weird franchise details aside, "Kong: Skull Island" looks fantastic.
Beauty And The Beast (Mar 17th)
The tale as old as time is back in another Disney effort to revamp its classic animated movies by turning them into live-action projects. Everything about "Beauty And The Beast" looks just right, and it must've been a challenge for its team to make such colorful characters look appealing as CGI who interact with real human beings. The highlight is, obviously, Emma Watson, who is great at everything she does and is quickly turning her Hermoine days into a mere Chapter 1 on her bio.
Power Rangers (Mar 24th)
After the end of the "Hunger Games" franchise and the abrupt demise of the "Divergent" movie series before it even properly ended, Lionsgate became quickly invested in finding a new action-packed, teen-friendly franchise to carry the blockbuster torch of the studio. It just so happened that, for many years, fans of the "Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers" had been eager to see it on the big screen, especially after this fan-made movie trailer was posted to YouTube. The stars aligned and now we are getting a "Power Rangers" full-length feature, and it actually looks promising and exciting and awesome. The Power Rangers have spun several seasons of its TV show, so the source material is enormous – full of villains, heroes, stories, and themes. Like with Marvel and DC movies, this could go on for many, many years.
