A March Filled with Films
In most cases, March is an off-season for movie-goers because it sits between the "Spring Festival blockbuster-season" and "May 1 blockbuster-season". The third month of the year is usually marked by a lack of big releases, a decline in ticket price, and a lukewarm market that feeds off of the frenzy and energy remaining from Spring Festival. Yet, this March is no ordinary March. A bevy of heavy-hitters have locked in their premier dates, including remake of Disney classics and a long-awaited mega hit from Marvel Studios, as well as Green Book, the recent winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture.
Here is a list of some must-see films in the silver screen tide of March. Check them out at a theatre near you!
Directed by: Peter Farrelly
Release Date: 2019.03.01
Score on Douban: 8.9
It's the recent winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture. Two men that are polar opposites in skin color, social class, personality and sexual orientation become lifelong friends because of a road trip. Heart-warming story, smart and unpretentious sense of humor, and remarkable music makes it a truly worthy outing for the cinema!

At the 2nd Pingyao International Film Festival, The Crossing garnered major accolades including Fei Mu Awards for Best Film and Best Actress. In February 2019, the movie was also invited to function as the opening film for the Discovery segment of the Toronto International Film Festival. We are counting on it to be as wonderful as its remarks.
Those ready to pitch tents at the theatre, remember to leave me a message...we can tent together, and I can bring marshmallow. Just kidding~
