March... how did it get to be March already? Oh well, new months come with new titles on Netflix Instant, so we can't really be all that mad that February is leaving us. At least, not until we start reading the "Leaving" list. But still, there's some roaring good times to be had with the movies, specials, and TV seasons heading your way, all thanks to those folks with the red envelopes!
Keep in mind, titles and dates are, as always, subject to change...
Week of March 1
Angry Birds: Season 2 (2013) -- March 1
Week of March 5
Señora Acero: Season 3 (2016) -- March 5
Week of March 12
Must Love Dogs (2005) -- March 13
Week of March 19
El Reemplazante: Season 1-2 (2012) -- March 20
Week of March 26
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004) -- March 26
There's obviously a lot of content headed to the leading streaming provider's collection in March, as Netflix has so many titles dropping on March 1st that it's going to be hard to catch all of the ones you really want to see. Since we're coming to the end of Oscar season, it's fitting that Best Picture winner Chicago, as well as Best Original Screenplay winner Midnight In Paris both join the ranks of the month's entertainment. Though don't count out Who Framed Roger Rabbit, as the film did win a special achievement trophy in 1989.
Fans of Netflix original content are also spoiled this month, as not only are Love and Grace & Frankie returning, but Marvel's Iron Fist is finally making its debut. The last piece in play before Marvel's The Defenders premieres, the story of Danny Rand's powerful transformation and return to New York City has been hotly anticipated for quite some time now.
Also, Netflix has landed an exclusive Amy Schumer stand-up special entitled "The Leather Special." So fans of Schumer's particular brand of humor can already see where this is going. Rounding out the original notables is The Discovery, a somber drama starring Robert Redford, Mary Steenburgen, Rooney Mara, and Jason Siegel. In that film, the world is shocked when the afterlife is proven to exist, causing the rate of suicides to skyrocket instantaneously.
If you're looking to play catch-up with some of last year's big releases, you'll get to see Hands of Stone, as well as Disney's Pete's Dragon and The BFG hit Netflix this month. But if you're looking for an old favorite, than may we suggest the Jurassic Park trilogy, which is returning in all of its glory / shame, at the top of the month? After all, springtime is dinosaur time, is it not? And if it isn't... can we make it so, from this point on?
