March 3: 'Sing'

Animated, runtime: 1 hour 48 minutes, rated PG

When a koala impresario (voiced by Matthew McConaughey) is in danger of losing his grand theater after one flop too many, he hatches a plan to stage a gala singing competition to save the day. But when a typo inflates the grand prize to $100,000, the contest attracts the attention of a number of singing animals, including a harried pig mom (Reese Witherspoon), a teenage gorilla (Taron Egerton), a shy elephant (Tori Kelly) and a punk porcupine (Scarlett Johansson). Seth MacFarlane, John C. Reilly, Jennifer Hudson and Nick Offerman also lend their voices to this animated musical comedy.

March 10:  'La La Land'

Runtime: 2 hours 8 minutes, rated PG-13

Struggling actress Mia (Emma Stone) and aspiring jazz pianist Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) begin a whirlwind romance as they both pursue their dreams in Los Angeles. However, their blossoming relationship is challenged when their careers pull them in different directions. Damien Chazelle ("Whiplash") wrote and directed this musical love story, which co-stars John Legend, J.K. Simmons and Rosemarie DeWitt.

March 17:  'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'

Runtime: 2 hours 13 minutes, rated PG-13

This spin-off of the Harry Potter franchise jumps back in time to explore the wizarding world of 1926 New York, which is being threatened by both mystical acts of destruction and a group of extremist No-Majs (the American term for Muggles, i.e. those unable to use magic). Author Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) arrives in the city as part of a global study of fantastic beasts, but he gets caught up in this conflict when some of the magical creatures in his care are accidentally released. Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Colin Farrell, Ezra Miller and Johnny Depp co-star in this fantasy adventure. This film is directed by David Yates (who helmed four of the Harry Potter films) and is based on the book by J.K. Rowling.

March 24:  'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'

Runtime: 2 hours 13 minutes, rated PG-13

This prequel to the very first Star Wars ("A New Hope") film tells the thrilling story of how a ragtag band of freedom fighters, including a former soldier-turned-prisoner (Felicity Jones), a Rebel Alliance insider (Diego Luna), an intensely spiritual believer in the Force (Donnie Yen) and a sentient robot (voiced by Alan Tudyk), worked together to steal the Death Star's secret blueprints. Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, Riz Ahmed, Mads Mikkelsen and Jimmy Smits co-star in "Rogue One," the first of several Star Wars spin-offs planned after J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" reboot.
