March (Movie) Madness

Personally, I don't give a rat's ass about college basketball. For me, March is all about the new movie season, and there are plenty of movies I really want to see this spring. Whether or not I actually get to see them all remains a question, but I determined to see more films this year than last, and there are several movies in the coming month on my list.

First up on March 4th, Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, Terrance Stamp and John Slattery are all in The Adjustment Bureau, about a man (Damon) who accidentally stumbles upon the secret society that runs everything:

I am increasingly a fan of Damon; Slattery is a college friend of K's and director George Nolfi (The Bourne Ultimatum) is working from a script based on a Philip K. Dick story. Deliciousness all around.

March 11th brings two movies I really want to to see: Battle: Los Angeles - the alien invasion movie that many are saying last year's Skyline should have been. Aaron Eckhardt, Bridget Moynahan and Michelle Rodriguez star:

 And Black Death, starring Sean Bean as a medieval knight sent out to investigate why a particular village has not been affected by the bubonic plague:

I'm guessing this is the movie Season of the Witch aspired to be.

March 16th also features two intriguing films. First is hottie Bradley Cooper and venerate Robert DeNiro in Limitless, about a drug which unlocks one's true potential, but with deadly side effects:

And then there's Paul, Greg Mottola's comedy starring Simon Pegg; Nick Frost; Jason Bateman; Sigourney Weaver; Krsiten Wiig and Bill Hader about a couple of slackers who encounter an alien (voiced by Seth Rogan) on their way  to ComicCon:

Of course, March 25th is the scheduled release for the movie I've been looking forward to seeing since last fall, Zack Snyder's Sucker-Punch, starring Abbie Cornish; Vanessa Hudegns; Carla Gugino; John Hamm and Scott Glen in a tale about young women who must find a way out of their confinement to an insane asylum, using their imaginations:

So, what movies are you looking forward to this spring?

More, anon.
