They say that the month of March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.

To get you prepared for the month ahead, we're breaking down the five movies we're most looking forward to this March, along with an indie honorable mention. Here are the best movies awaiting you in the weeks ahead!
1Chappie - March 6
South African filmmaker Neill Blomkamp returns with his third feature film Chappie, following Best Picture nominee District 9 and the sci-fi tentpole Elysium.

A new international trailer has come our way for Noah Baumbach's (The Squid and the Whale, Frances Ha) While We're Young, which teams up Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as a middle aged couple who try to recapture their youth when the befriend the younger, free spirited Jamie and Darby (Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried). This cross-generational comedy has garnered a shed load of praise since it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and judging by the above trailer, it's not unwarranted.

#1. It Follows (March 13)(Film Page) Director: David Robert Mitchell Cast: Maika Monroe, Keir Gilchrist, Daniel Zovatto, Jake Weary, Olivia Luccardi, Lili Sepe Criticwire Average: A- Why is it a "Must See"? Director David Robert Mitchell follows up "The Myth of the American Sleepover" with an expressionistic teen horror movie that's like nothing else. While "Myth of the American Sleepover" took the whiny young archetypes of a John Hughes movie in an expressionistic direction, "It Follows" turns to eighties teen slashers of the "Halloween" and "Nightmare on Elm Street" variety while elevating them to a more abstract plane, rendering the looming threat of adulthood in ominous terms. #2. While We're Young (March 27)(Film Page) Director: Noah Baumbach Cast: Ben Stiller, Amanda Seyfried, Naomi Watts, Charles Grodin Criticwire Average: B+ Why is it a "Must See"?

'The Lazarus Effect' box office: Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass horror movie arrives comatose (photo: Olivia Wilde in 'The Lazarus Effect') (See previous post: "'Focus': Will Smith Has One of Worst Opening Weekends of His Career.") Despite recent news that human head transplants are a mere two years away, the Mark Duplass-Olivia Wilde horror movie The Lazarus Effect – about bringing the dead back to life (as if world overpopulation weren't already a problem) – grossed $10.6 million from 2,666 U.S. and Canada venues on opening weekend, Feb. 27-March 1, 2015, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. The Relativity Studios-distributed low-budget horror flick had earned an estimated $3.8 million on opening-day Friday, including $350,000 from Thursday night screenings. Last week, box-office prognosticators had been expecting an opening between $12-$14 million. That was adjusted downward to $10 million or whereabouts after the film's disappointing Friday debut.

Release diary: What movies are coming out in 2015?
Digital Spy rounds up the five films you have to see this March...
Release date: March 6
Why you should see it: All the talk surrounding Neill Blomkamp at the moment is surrounding his proposed Alien sequel, perhaps overshadowing the fact he actually has a new film coming out. Following on from District 9 and Elysium, the filmmaker's third feature Chappie centres on a police robot who's rebooted and develops a consciousness.

Deadline has reported that the Divergent sequel, Insurgent, which is set for release at the end of March, looks likely to have a bumper opening weekend in the Us, with tickets sales up on the original.
Tickets for Insurgent went on sale earlier this week through Us ticket companies Fandango and MovieTickets.com, and early industry indications have the film heading for a $57 million three-day box office opening during its March 20th-22nd weekend. And while the estimates don’t include advance sales, industry tracking has the film above the $54 million opening weekend of Divergent on the same weekend last year.
Understandably, the film’s tracking is strongest amongst females, with 83% of awareness from females under-25, and another 77% from teenagers between 12-16, with females again showing the main interest in the film.

While We're Young is an openly funny cross-generational comedy of manners about aging, ambition and success, as well as a moving portrait of a marriage tested by the invading forces of youth. Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts are Josh and Cornelia Srebnick, happily married middle-aged members of New York's creative class. They tried to start a family and were unable to — and have decided they’re okay with that. But as Josh labors over the umpteenth edit of his cerebral new film, it’s plain that he has hit a dry patch and that something is still missing. Enter Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried), a free-spirited young couple, who are spontaneous and untethered, ready to drop everything in pursuit of their next passion — retro board games one day, acquiring a pet chicken the next. »

Noah Baumbach has carved out a successful slate of features exploring a variety of demographics. From The Squid And The Whale‘s dysfunctional family dynamic to Frances Ha‘s directionless-yet-awesome protagonist, the director has tackled his fair share of neuroses. With his latest offering, comedy drama While We’re Young, his sights are set on investigating an entirely new type of character.
The film stars Naomi Watts and Ben Stiller, a happily-married couple each in their forties. Having made peace with the prospect of a childless future, the pair broaden their horizons when they befriend a much younger couple – played by Amanda Seyfried and Adam Driver. And therein begins the next stage in their life as Watts and Stiller commence with a series of pratfalls during their attempts at impressing their youthful companions.
Last fall we saw the first teaser, that set up the premise nicely while offering both leads a solid amount of one-liners. »

The Toronto Film Festival selection "Guidance" has been picked up by Strand Releasing. The film, starring, directed by and written by Pat Mills, has a premise like a sitcom: an immature former child actor cons his way into a job as a high school guidance counselor and gives typically terrible advice. The protagonist is based on Mills, who appeared on Nickelodeon's "You Can't Do That On Television" when he was a kid. Strand is planning a theatrical release in the Fall.

"Why do you suddenly want to hang out with a couple of 25 year olds?" You're only as young as you feel, and Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts seem to feel like they're in their mid-20s again. At least, that's what happens when they start hanging out with youngsters Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried in While We're Young, the latest from The Squid and the Whale / Frances Ha writer & director Noah Baumbach. This might be Baumbach's most accessible film, perhaps with a skew toward older crowds as opposed to the usual young, hip indie audience. But the writing, characters and comedy are genuine enough for all to enjoy. Here's the second trailer for Noah Baumbach's While We're Young originally from Yahoo: You can still watch the first trailer for Noah Baumbach's While We're Young right here.
