With February leaving us, it's time to see what ahead in March. Studios are releasing a LOT of films in a variety of genres and we'll be getting our first taste of blockbuster tentpole-type movies featuring Jim Carrey, James Franco, Gerard Butler and another Stephenie Meyer adaptation. So let's get into it…
If you're a fan of CGI heavy movies, March is going to be a great month for you. Not only do we get Bryan Singer helming the adventurous Jack the Giant Slayer but Sam Raimi directs Franco in Oz The Great and Powerful. Both films are filled with lots of great, memorable scenes. You can check out the Giant Slayer one here and Oz's big scene next week.
If you're in the mood for comedy, March is loaded with a wide release comedy hitting theaters almost every weekend. The guys who wrote The Hangover are back with 21 and Over while Jim Carrey and Steve Carell team up for the highly anticipated The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and Tina Fey and Paul Rudd co-star for Admission.
Dramas and thrillers will be in full force as well with Colin Farrell in Dead Man Down, Halle Berry headlining The Call, Gerard Butler protecting the president in Olympus Has Fallen, Tyler Perry's latest Temptation and the latest Stephenie Meyer adaptation The Host starring Saoirse Ronan and Diane Kruger. Korean director Chan-wook Park (Oldboy, Lady Vengeance)makes his Hollywood debut with the creepy thriller Stoker and Harmonie Korine brings us his latest, Spring Breakers, starring Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and James Franco.
A couple animated films will arrive in theaters. Fox brings us The Croods, featuring the voice work of Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds and Nicolas Cage while the latest from Japan's Studio Ghibli, From Up on Poppy Hill gets a limited release.
Action fans will have to make due with G.I. Joe: Retaliation, the only pure action movie being released in March. But don't fret, summer is but a few months away.
Last month's most anticipated movies were A Good Day to Die Hard, with Warm Bodies and Identity Thief rounding out the top three. Coincidentally, all three movies topped the box office in February.

Looking forward to Welcome to the Punch. An English crime movie starring James McAvoy
Looking forward to Oz and The Croods!
Me too matt hey you heard the news of Man of steel Planes and Oblivion
I herd about the Planes news with Dane Cook now starring as Dusty. By the way what's the new Man Of Steel news?
Representatives of Warner Bros. have given the movie mostly positive reception and the movie is in near completition with the 3D conversion the last bit of work left to do
They say it may be the movie event of the year and less darker than the trailers suggested
Meanwhile what do you think of the Planes news
I'm looking forward to Planes. I hope Dane Cook will be good as Dusty
Me too Matt maybe this might be something foolproof
Understand what I'm saying
Yes, I have faith that Disney has picked the right guy for the job
And possibly the right story
Don't you think
Actually I found out about the plot already, its on Pixar Wiki
And what do you think
Can't wait for OZ Admission and The Croods but Croods is what I'm looking forward to the most
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
