The best films coming to Netflix UK this March
Share This Article:
This month brings a great mix of exclusive Netflix originals, new, and old films, packing our favourite streaming service with enough must-watch hits to tide you over into spring. And don’t forget to also check out our March TV roundup! 1. Midnight Special – 8th March When his child begins to exhibit supernatural abilities, Roy Tomlin (Oscar nominee Michael Shannon) and his son must go on the run to keep him out of the hands of religious extremists and law enforcement. A masterful blend of science fiction and fantasy by the wonderful Jeff Nichols, this film promises to be a hit with anyone who’s suffering from Stranger Things withdrawal. 2. The Jungle Book – 10th March Spectacular digital animation collides with old-fashioned storytelling to create a faithful, but more complex, remake of the original Disney favourite. Not only are the visuals absolutely stunning, but the remake maintains the fun and excitement of the original even as audiences know the story, making it an all-around success. 3. Annihilation – 12th March The Ex Machina writer-director Alex Garland returns with this adaption of Jeff VanderMeer’s award-winning horror/science fiction novel. Whilst Paramount got spooked by test audiences finding the film too “complicated” or “intellectual”, and thus sold the rights to Netflix instead, what is likely to come of this is an uncompromised product of Garland’s vision. And if Ex Machina was anything to go by, this will be one of the season’s must-watch. 4. Guardians of the Galaxy – 20th March A talking raccoon, Vin Diesel as a tree, and the best retro soundtrack to grace this earth? What more could anyone want? This witty, hilarious and self-aware bubblegum film sees Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord lead a ragtag bunch of criminals and mercenaries on a quest to save the galaxy. 5. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. – 25th March
