March means Oscars, as this month's 95th Oscars celebrates the best films of last year. But even as you're completing your Best Picture watch list, new releases will be arriving in theaters each week. This month is a big one for franchises, with new entries in the Rocky/Creed saga, the newly-rebooted Scream series, and a John Wick fourquel. But March also marks the release of the indie drama that won this year's Sundance Grand Jury Prize.

Below, everything you need to know about the movies coming to theaters and streaming platforms this month.

Creed III

Michael B. Jordan makes his directorial debut with the third installment in the Creed franchise.

Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre

Outside of the rules of war, a "ruse de guerre" often refers to a clever, tricky, or unorthodox means of thwarting one's opponents. That's the premise of Guy Ritchie's spy flick, which casts Jason Statham as super-spy Orson Fortune, Aubrey Plaza as an elite agent, and Josh Hartnett as a Hollywood movie star who must stop a billionaire arms dealer played by Hugh Grant. Fun fact: This is the first of two movies this month that feature Grant as the bad guy.
