Premier Highlights: March

Although the shiny Oscar season might be over, we won’t run out of good films throughout March, either. Let’s see all the premiers that got our attention this month!


2 March


In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. All he wants is a quiet life. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant with extremely rare abilities arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
