Start Planning for Spring Break with This List of Movies Releasing in Theaters in March 2023
March means a lot of things to a lot of people. Some of us cheer that winter is on the way out and flowers will soon bloom. While students (and teachers) relish in the fact that Spring Break will soon be here. Whether you have something on your calendar that you’re anticipating or not, one thing is for certain, there’s probably a movie you could pencil in. The ramp-up of movies this month ensures there’s a mix of releases across multiple genres, with a heavy amount of sequels to major franchises.
Amidst all of those, I’m excited to finally see the release of 65. It isn’t the star, Adam Driver, that makes this one stand out. It’s the people behind the scenes. 65 is from the writers of A Quiet Place: Scott Beck and Bryan Woods. They hail from our hometown and are graduates of the University of Iowa. March looks like it’s going to be a great one for hitting the theater, but if you can only see one then I’m going to root for it to be 65. Read more about it and other upcoming releases in the list below.
