7 must-watch movies coming to Irish cinemas in March

Rory Cashin

Horror, comedy, LOADS of Irish productions AND arguably the biggest movie of 2022.

Colin Farrell, Jason Statham, Jake Gyllenhaal and more feature in the big new releases coming to Irish cinemas throughout March, starting with…

THE BATMAN – 4 March

We shouldn’t have to tell you anything about this by now, right? It is probably one of the most anticipated movies of 2022. And it is finally here!


The first of an impressive group of Irish releases this month, this horror-drama is already picking up some serious attention from the festival circuit. Set in North Dublin, it tells the story of a teenage girl (Hazel Doupe – Smother, Michael Inside) who seeks the truth behind her mother’s (Carolyn Bracken – Dublin Murders) sudden disappearance. You can check out our chat with Bracken and the movie’s director right here:

RED ROCKET – 11 March

From the writer/director of two of the best hidden gem dramas of the last decade (seriously, seek out Tangerine and The Florida Project if you haven’t already), this sorta-based-on-a-true-story comedic drama focuses on a washed-up porn star (played by real-life porn star Simon Rex), who returns to his home town, only to discover his friends and family are less-than-impressed to see him again.

WOLF – 18 March

Filmed in Ireland with a very impressive cast including George MacKay (1917), Lily-Rose Depp (Voyagers), Paddy Considine (Dead Man’s Shoes), Fionn O’Shea (Normal People) and Lola Petticrew (Dating Amber), it tells the story of a man (MacKay) who believes he is a wolf trapped inside the body of a man, and the people who meets at a clinic that attempts to “cure” him of his ailment.

X – 18 March

A group of young filmmakers head to Texas to make an adult movie, but when the locals realise what they’re doing, the stars and director suddenly find themselves fighting for their lives. The director of some great scary movies (The House of the Devil, V/H/S, The Innkeepers) has gathered a great cast for this, including Jenny Ortega (Scream), Brittany Snow (Pitch Perfect), Kid Cudi (Don’t Look Up), Martin Henderson (The Ring) and Mia Goth (Suspiria).

AMBULANCE – 25 March

Michael Bay’s latest foray into the world of Blowing Everything Up features Jake Gyllenhaal and Yahya-Abdul Mateen II as a pair of bank robbers who hijack an ambulance when their heist goes wrong. And before long, everything else starts to go wrong too. And by go wrong, we mean explode.

THE CELLAR – 25 March

And we finish with another Irish production, centred around a woman (Elisha Cuthbert – 24, The Girl Next Door), who discovers that her young daughter has mysteriously vanished in the cellar of their new home. Before long, she realises the house is controlled by a powerful entity that may soon destroy her entire family.
