Opening this Month: March 2015

Happy March! Looking forward to warmer days and better movies. Some of what we’re looking forward to this month:
“Chappie,” from “District 9’s” Neill Blomkamp, is the story of a robot whose artificial intelligence may just rise to the level of a personality, even a soul, with Hugh Jackman (an experienced robot movie actor following “Real Steel”), Sigourney Weaver, and Dev Patel (“Slumdog Millionaire”).
“The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” is a sequel to the popular original. The returning cast includes Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Judi Dench, and (again) Dev Patel,” with newcomers Richard Gere and “Episodes'” Tamsin Greig.
“Cinderella” is Disney’s live action version of the fairy tale, with Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother and Helena Bonham-Carter as the fairy godmother.
“Merchants of Doubt” This documentary is a disturbing look into the subversion of scientific findings by corporate-sponsored “experts” acting on behalf of thinly disguised phony non-profits whose commitment is not to the integrity of the scientific method but to delay, distraction, harassment, and doubt.
“Insurgent” The second in the “Divergent” series has Jeanine (Kate Winslet) going after Tris (Shailene Woodley) and her friends.
“Seymour: An Introduction” Ethan Hawke directed this documentary about music teacher Seymour Bernstein.
“Home” Steve Martin, Jim Parsons, and Rihanna provide the voices in this animated comedy about an alien invasion.
