March has come and it’s time to spring into a new lineup of films. This month features nine new wide releases along with three notable limited release films that I have my eyes on the lookout for. Of the nine new releases, three will be released in 3D.
There’s a little bit of everything for everyone at the movies this month, but March features two of the highest profile projects of the year in John Carter and The Hunger Games. Both films made it onto my most anticipated list (found here), so be sure to check them out. Though I doubt most people will need convincing to go see The Hunger Games.

“Project X” (2012) Trailer #2
Warner Bros. and Todd Phillips has released the second trailer for their upcoming found footage event film, Project X.
With this trailer we’re given a more accurate tone for what kind of movie to expect—it’s a comedy despite not having a real fit for it. If you thought Jonah Hill, Michael Cera and Christopher Mintz-Plasse were as realistic as you could get to legitimate teenagers then you’d be proven wrong after looking at this trailer.
It’s an interesting film, but will it be good? I really think it’s going to be up to the person, but speaking personally I think the whole idea of it is interesting, but overall it’s going to be stupid. Do people really throw parties like this?
If you’re interested, check it out when it hits theatres March 2nd.
“Project X” (2012) Trailer #1
Hollywood seems to be taking the whole found footage style of film to whole new lengths with this latest project by Todd Phillips (The Hangover). Here we have more extreme party antics with Project X, and the twist this time around is that its filmed in the found footage style.
I understand how the style would fit something like this, but what the trailer fails to do is tell the audience whether this is supposed to be a comedy. I couldn’t honestly tell you all what genre this film is supposed to be, but if it interests you check it out when it hits theatres March 2nd, 2012.
