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!

South African filmmaker Neill Blomkamp returns with his third feature film Chappie, following Best Picture nominee District 9 and the sci-fi tentpole Elysium. The filmmaker goes back to his South African roots with Chappie, which centers on the title robot (voiced by Sharlto Copley), who is the first android to develop his own thoughts and emotions. The director has assembled an all-star cast including Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver and Dev Patel, along with South African rappers Ninja and Yo-Landi Visser of Die Antwoord. The film has been gaining rave reviews thus far, but we'll have to wait and see how it fares at the box office. Check out the latest trailer: /chappie-movie-full-trailer/CLICK HERE
