7 Spring Movies To Get Excited About!

With March just around the corner, we are entering the Spring movie season, and we have some of the major releases you should be excited about.

As February draws to a close and we gear up for March, it’s also time to gear up for the Spring movie season. While we still have a while to wait for Summer popcorn movies like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 or Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 there are plenty of reasons to head to your local multiplex this Spring.

Cocaine Bear

Release Date: February 24

Why you should be excited:

Cocaine Bear is the newest film from director Elizabeth Banks and it has already taken the internet by storm! The premise is exactly what you would expect from a movie called Cocaine Bear; a bear ingests large amounts of cocaine and goes on a violent tirade across a small town. This movie has an all star cast, including the last performance of the great Ray Liotta, a hilarious premise, and Banks has said that the film is inspired by Sam Raimi films like The Evil Dead. Early social media reactions are calling this movie a great time, and we can’t wait to see it!

Creed III

Release Date: March 3

Why you should be excited:

In a landscape where almost every classic franchise has been rebooted in some form or another, the first two Creed movies stand out as some of the best filmmaking in modern franchises. This time Michael B. Jordan will not only be starring in the film, but also directing. This is not unlike the previous heavyweight of the franchise, Sylvester Stallone, who directed Rocky 2-4. Jonathan Majors will also be joining the cast as this film’s big bad. Early social media reactions are calling Creed III absolutely incredible, and are praising Jordan as a director. Make sure to catch this one when it comes out.


Release Date: March 10

Why you should be excited:

Futuristic Adam Driver fighting Dinosaurs! There’s not much else to say about this sci-fi thriller from the writers of A Quiet Place, but there’s not much else needed to sell a movie. This is about as high a concept movie that you can get and we are all here for it. What makes this an even sweeter deal is that 65 is only 87 minutes long!

John Wick: Chapter 4

Release Date: March 24

Why you should be excited: The John Wick movies have consistently upped the action and style everytime, and this 4th chapter looks like no exception. Coming in at a whopping 2 hours and 49 minutes. That’s a lot of Keanu, but with these movies enough is never enough.


Release Date: April 5

Why you should be excited:

From director/star Ben Affleck comes this real life story of the creation of Air Jordans. This is an all star sports drama that Hollywood rarely makes anymore, and it looks absolutely incredible. If it’s anything like Affleck’s previous movies (Argo, The Town, ect.) then it should be. This movie has an incredible cast, a great trailer, and Ben Affleck dressed in the most 80s fashion ever. This one looks like a winner.


Release Date: April 7

Why you should be excited:

This indie comedy stars Owen Wilson as a Bob Ross type figure whose life begins to fall apart when a new, and better, artist steals his thunder. While this is in no way a biopic on Ross, it is still exciting to see Wilson step into that type of role, and this little movie looks strange yet hilarious.

Beau is Afraid

Release Date: April 21

Why you should be excited:

With Hereditary and Midsommar, Ari Aster has established himself as one of the more interesting filmmakers of the 21st century. His films are dark, personal, scary, and sometimes bizarrely funny. His newest film, Beau is Afraid, looks like it’s going to be his most out there movie yet. With surrealist visuals and Joaquin Phoenix in the lead role, this looks like a strange one, but maybe a great one. Only time will tell.

Make sure to check out these movies as they roll into theaters this spring!
