The Boy who Harnessed the Wind

Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) makes his directing and screenwriting debut with this inspiring true tale. Based on a memoir of the same name by engineer William Kamkwamba, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind is set during a deadly famine in Malawi in the early 2000s. When Kamkwamba’s family can no longer afford to send him to school, the 14-year-old begins spending his days reading in the local library. Inspired by some of history’s greatest inventors, he uses discarded tractor and bicycle parts to construct electricity-generating windmills—and save his impoverished town. March 1. 

Queer Eye, season 3

The Fab Five are bidding Atlanta farewell and heading to Kansas City for the third season of their heart-tugging makeover series. Their mission remains the same: helping ordinary people learn how to be their best selves. While previous seasons focused on male subjects, the new episodes feature an equal number of men and women. (And, for the first time, the gang will make over a gay woman.) March 15. 

Love, Death and Robots

Directors David Fincher (Fight Club, Gone Girl) and Tim Miller (Deadpool) sound like an odd pairing on paper, but their wildly contrasting cinematic styles—psychological brain benders versus action-packed parodies—make for the perfect genre-blending anthology. Their adults-only animated series is Rick and Morty meets Ren and Stimpy—but broodier. Each episode was shot using a different animation technique, and no topic is off-limits. Expect sex, demons, cyborg thieves, super-powered soldiers, murder and space travel along with the titular love, death and robots. March 15. 

The Highway Men

Bonnie and Clyde are the archetype for young, glamorous outlaws, but this film focuses on their considerably less sexy captors: former Texas rangers Frank Hamer (Kevin Costner) and Maney Gault (Woody Harrelson). The Highwaymen flips the script, taking a closer look at the old-school detective methods used to track down one of America’s most notorious crime duos. March 29.

Triple Frontier

Ben Affleck stars as an ex-military badass in this new thriller about a mission gone wrong. After serving their country for years, with nothing but bullet wounds to show for it, a retired group of Special Forces operatives use their army training for their own personal benefit. What starts as a plan to take down one of South America’s largest drug cartels—and pocket over $100 million in cash—quickly turns into a fight for survival. The cast includes Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund and Pedro Pascal. March 13. 

Eighth Grade

In comedian Bo Burnham’s acclaimed directorial debut, Kayla (Elsie Fisher), a socially awkward middle-schooler who passes her time by making motivational videos on YouTube, is finishing her final week of eighth grade at a public school in New York. There are no shocking plot twists or gossipy scandals, but the film received acclaim for being the first movie to accurately represent youth culture in the digital age. It chronicles the very real pressures tied up in social media, sexuality and fitting in. March 1.

McQueen

At the peak of his career, couture icon Alexander McQueen took his own life one day before his mother’s funeral in 2010. In this emotional documentary, directors Peter Ettedgui (whose father was one of McQueen’s first buyers) and Ian Bonhôte chronicle McQueen’s legacy, from his early days working as an apprentice at Andersona and Sheppard, to his rise to rebel runway star, to his descent into substance abuse and depression. It’s a staggering tribute to one of the 20th century’s greatest designers, painting McQueen not only as an imaginative artist who weaved magic into every one of his creations, but as someone who redefined fashion as an outlet of wonderfully weird self expression. March 29.
