Month #3 in 2021 looks a lot different now than it did six months ago, even more so a year ago. Last year who can forget the event that first started shutting down theaters (hint). We were in Vegas at the time and it was strange seeing the strip shut down.
Streaming movies would be the only place new movies could be seen for almost six months. Then they opened for a couple months only to close again in November. Theaters in our area reopened at the beginning of February and we were able to watch 9 movies in theaters last month.
This month Coming 2 America has been picked up by Amazon Prime and will start streaming to Prime Video subscribers on March 5. Raya and The Last Dragon is borrowing a page from the book of Disney+ Premium ($30 extra charge) on Disney+ and Warner Bros. has two more movies coming out both in theaters and on HBO Max including Godzilla vs. Kong.
For historical reference, we’re including the films originally planned for this month, delays and reschedules dates when available as of this writing.
We’re also including some notable streaming releases, but this list isn’t meant to be all-inclusive. Weekly on Thursdays usually we post a “WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEKEND” list covering streaming in more depth.
All March 2021 movie release dates unless otherwise indicated are for the United States, the release dates in other countries can/may/will vary.
