Who would you rather travel to space with Timothée Chalamet or Adam Sandler?

Luckily, you don't have to choose, because March offers the chance to visit distant solar systems with both leading men! This month's film slate is a particularly wide-ranging mix of blockbusters (including the latest installments in the Ghostbusters and MonsterVerse franchises) and biopics, period pieces, genre movies, satirical comedies, comedic satires, and at least two releases that dabble in magical realism.

Read on for A.frame's complete guide to all of the new movies being released in March.

Dune: Part Two

Denis Villeneuve's Oscar-winning adaptation of Frank Herbert's sci-fi epic began in 2021's Dune, which followed Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) and the House of Atreides as they took over the spice trade on the desert planet of Arrakis. But when the royal family is betrayed by House Harkonnen, Paul and his mother, Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson), must flee into the sandworm-infested wastelands. Dune: Part Two continues Paul's saga alongside Zendaya's Chani and the Fremen, as he seeks revenge and attempts to fulfill his destiny as the Kwisatz Haderach.

In Spaceman, Adam Sandler plays an astronaut who forms an unlikely bond with a spider-like alien. The movie isn't an odd-couple buddy comedy — not exactly — but instead a surreal drama about fear and loneliness. Directed by Johan Renck, Spaceman follows Sandler's Jakub on a solo mission to the edge of the solar system; there, he discovers an arachnid being (voiced by Paul Dano) stowed aboard his ship, who helps him come to terms with the state of his marriage. Three-time Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan plays his wife, with Isabella Rossellini as Jakub's mission chief.

Julio Torres, of Saturday Night Live and Los Espookys fame, makes his feature directorial debut with Problemista. Channeling his own experiences as a Salvadoran immigrant, the surrealist comedy follows Alejandro (Torres), an aspiring toy designer, as he navigates the U.S. Immigration system and eventually takes a job working for an art-world diva (played by Oscar winner Tilda Swinton) in order to secure his visa. Magical surrealism abounds.

Love Lies Bleeding

The American Society of Magical Negroes

First-time filmmaker Kobi Libii tackles the "magical negro" trope head-on in The American Society of Magical Negroes. The satirical comedy stars Justice Smith as Aren, a young Black man who discovers a secret society dedicated to making white people's lives easier — which in turn — protects Black people from harm. The movie also stars David Alan Grier, An-Li Bogan, Drew Tarver, Michaela Watkins, Aisha Hinds, Tim Baltz, Rupert Friend and Nicole Byer.

One Life

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire

The OG Ghostbusters had souped-up cameos in Jason Reitman's 2021 reboot, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, but the surviving quartet — Bill Murray's Peter Venkman, Dan Aykroyd's Ray Stantz, Ernie Hudson's Winston Zeddemore, and Annie Potts' Janine Melnitz — are front and center, busting ghosts alongside the next generation, in the New York City-set sequel, Frozen Empire. (This time, Afterlife co-writer Gil Kenan takes over directing duties.) Of course, Slimer and the Mini Pufts are also back.

This year has seen Sydney Sweeney play a Shakespearean lover in the rom-com Anyone But You and a would-be Spider-woman in the superhero movie, Madame Web. In Immaculate, she dons a nun's habit as a devout woman who discovers her new convent harbors sinister secrets. From director Michael Mohan (who directed Sweeney in 2021's The Voyeurs), the R-rated horror flick lives up to its title when Sweeney's Cecilia discovers herself suddenly with child and exalted as the next Virgin Mary.

La Chimera

Oscar-nominated filmmaker Alice Rohrwacher (Le Pupille) brings her Italian-set trilogy, which began with 2014's The Wonders and continued in 2018's Happy as Lazzaro, to a close with La Chimera. The romantic drama stars Josh O'Connor as a ne'er-do well tomb robber in search of a special prize: A mythological door to the afterlife that would reunite him with his lost love. La Chimera premiered during last year's Cannes Film Festival, before screening at — amongst others — the New York Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival, and Toronto International Film Festival.

Wicked Little Letters

Oscar winner Olivia Colman (The Favourite) and Oscar nominee Jessie Buckley cursing each other out in period garb? What more do you need to hear! Directed by Thea Sharrock and based on a true scandal, the comic farce depicts a spate of obscene letters that scandalize the town of Littlehampton in the 1920s. When deeply conservative Edith (Colman) accuses rowdy Irish migrant Rose (Buckley) of sending the mysterious mail, the women's war escalates beyond bad manners.
