The best new movie releases in March

Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill square up for superhero smackdown and Charlie Kaufman is back with a funny, sad, philosophical wonder

1. Hail, Caesar!

Film Comedy

Joel and Ethan Coen are back with a screwball tribute to 1950s Hollywood. Josh Brolin heads the all-star cast as a studio Mr Fix-It trying to figure out who kidnapped a movie star (George Clooney). Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johanson, Tilda Swinton and Channing Tatum also appear. It’s impossible to watch the trailer without a big goofy smile creeping across your face.

2. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Film Action and adventure

Superhero team-ups are all the rage at the moment. So it was almost inevitable that some bright spark would think of putting up the most recent caped crusader, Henry Cavill from ‘Man of Steel’, against the Dark Knight. Christian Bale passed on getting back into the bat suit. Enter Ben Affleck (not to everyone’s delight). The basic gist is that Batman is mistrustful of Supes’s unchecked power and takes him down a notch or two.

3. Anomalisa

Film Animation

We guarantee that ‘Anomalisa’ is the only film you’ll see this year featuring a sex scene between two puppets. It’s the latest masterpiece of weird from Charlie Kaufman, writer of ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ and is a stop-motion animation about a depressed motivational speaker (voiced by David Thewlis).

4. Truth

Film Drama

Here’s the real-life story of how the American TV news show ‘60 Minutes’ came unstuck after in 2004 after running a story raising questions about George W Bush’s recorded military service. The casting is a dream, with Cate Blanchett on peak form as producer Mary Mapes and Robert Redford offering solid support as legendary host Dan Rather.
