More Movies to Watch in March 2017: On Demand With ScreenCrush
Think there’s nothing good to watch on television? Think again — and check out our new series, On Demand With ScreenCrush. Every two weeks, ScreenCrush Editor-in-Chief Matt Singer joins you to recommend three handpicked films you can watch at home right now from Movies on Demand. These are big new releases you won’t find streaming on Netflix, and the choices run the gamut from indie favorites, to major blockbusters, to insightful documentaries, and everything in between — all available with your remote.
In our 16th installment, we’re traveling all over time and space to bring you the best recent movies. The Harry Potter franchise lives on in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, with Eddie Redmayne leading an all-star cast through a magical mystery tour of 1920s New York City. Then we’ll hop over to Japan for Silence, the latest drama from acclaimed director Martin Scorsese. Finally we’ll head back across the Pacific to Santa Barbara, California, where Annette Bening, Greta Gerwig, and Elle Fanning star in 20th Century Women, about a trio of strong ladies who team up to teach a teenager how to be a better man. No matter what kind of movie you want, you’ll find it on demand.
