Watch | Read | Listen {March 2015}

It is a very good month for entertainment, my friends! There are incredible films, novels, and albums coming out the next four weeks, and I for one am very excited about it. I just know I'll be going to the theaters at least twice this month (for Cinderella and Insurgent) and popping into my local library to get my hands on The Wicked Will Rise

MOVIES

Chappie
The director of District 9 and Elysium is now telling the story of Chappie, a gift and special robot who is smart and can be influenced by his surroundings. He is the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself, but a powerful force wants him to be the last of his kind. Starring Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver, and Hugh Jackman. (Watch the trailer.) Neill Blomkamp's films have heart and make you think about society and are always amazing.  (March 6)

Cinderella 
Disney is once again bringing to life the classic fairy tale of Cinderella. The 1950s animated classic is being brought to life in this live-action story of a young woman (Lily James) who is mistreated by her stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and finds love (Richard Madden) in an unlikely place. (Watch the trailer.) This film looks absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to see it! (March 13)

The Cobbler
Adam Sandler plays a cobbler who works in the same New York shop that has been in his family for generations. When his machine breaks, he goes into the basement and unearths a magical heirloom that allows him to step into the lives of his customers and see the world with a fresh perspective. (Watch the trailer.) This comedy looks heartwarming and very funny. (March 13)

Insurgent
The second in the Divergent series and based on the book by Veronica Roth, Insurgent continues the story of Tris (Shaine Woodley) and Four (Theo James), now fugitives being hunted by Jeanine (Kate Winslet), as they fight to stay alive, to stop the power-hungry Erudite elite, and make their world a better place. (Watch the trailer.) Yes yes yes! You can bet I'll be seeing this! (March 20)

Serena
Based on the book by Ron Rash, in North Carolina in the 1920s, George (Bradley Cooper) and Serena Pemberton (Jennifer Lawrence) are newly-weds who build a timber empire. The Pembertons refuse to let anyone stand in the way of their love and ambitions, but when Serena discovers George's hidden past, their marriage begins to crumble. (Watch the trailer.) I've heard this film in incredible. (March 27)

  10. Cinderella is definitely my most anticipated this month, but I'm also really looking forward to The Second Best Marigold Hotel. I hadn't seen anything on The Cobbler, but that sounds wonderful too! So many new books out this month that I want to read too, but I'm trying to get caught up on my TBR pile first.
