New on HBO Now: All the Movies and TV Coming in March

HBO may or may not be TV, depending on who you ask, but it’s home to some of the best shows around, regardless, as well as many a worthwhile feature film. March’s collection of new titles headed to the HBO Now library is replete with highlights, the highest of which we’ll attempt to concisely catalog for you below. Follow along or skip straight to the list—the choice is yours.

HBO Now’s March TV offerings easily outshine its incoming feature films, with one title in particular jumping out at us: The Plot Against America (March 16), a new, six-part limited series adaptation of Philip Roth’s acclaimed 2004 novel of the same name. Created by The Wire collaborators David Simon and Ed Burns, and starring Zoe Kazan (The Deuce), Winona Ryder (Show Me a Hero), John Turturro (The Night Of) and Morgan Spector (Boardwalk Empire), The Plot Against America “imagines an alternate American history during World War II, told through the eyes of a working-class Jewish family in New Jersey as they endure the political rise of Charles Lindbergh, an aviator-hero and xenophobic populist, who captures the presidency and turns the nation toward fascism,” per HBO. That’s just the start of HBO’s new TV offerings, which also include the Season 3 premiere of prestige sci-fi series Westworld (March 15), the Season 2 premiere of Elena Ferrante adaptation My Brilliant Friend and the Season 3 premiere of news-breaking docuseries Axios. And alongside all those new beginnings, we also have endings (however lasting): Curb Your Enthusiasm (March 22), The Outsider (March 8), The New Pope (March 9), Avenue 5 (March 15) and docuseries McMillion$ (March 9) all have finales slated for the month of March.

On the cinematic side of things, HBO has a relatively quiet month coming up, though there are still a number of blockbusters you may deem worth screening at the ol’ Home Box Office. The biggest and baddest is easily Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (March 14), the Dwayne Johnson- and Jason Statham-starring spinoff of the Fast & Furious franchise that takes its gleefully absurd action-comedy stylings to a new level. Other incoming theatrical premieres include another 2019 franchise entry, X-Men: Dark Phoenix (March 21), starring Sophie Turner of Game of Thrones fame as powerful telepath Jean Gray; Danny Boyle’s high-concept dramedy Yesterday (March 7), in which struggling musician Jack (Himesh Patel) discovers that a supernatural occurrence has left him the only person on earth who remembers the music of The Beatles; Andrea Berloff-directed crime drama The Kitchen (March 28), starring Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish and Elisabeth Moss as Hell’s Kitchen housewives forced to pick up the slack after their mobbed-up husbands get pinched; and Bruce Springsteen-inspired coming-of-age musical Blinded by the Light (March 22). Less recent (but no less watchable) titles on the way, all arriving March 1, include Fight Club, My Left Foot, Crimson Peak, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, Match Point, Babe (and Babe: Pig in the City), Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Armageddon and Along Came Polly.

Don’t get caught napping when it comes to what’s leaving HBO in March, either: The Favourite, Robocop (plus Robocop 2 and 3), Black Swan, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Mortal Engines, Thank You for Smoking, United 93, Hello, Dolly!, The Killing Fields and Truth or Dare, among others, all depart the service on March 31.
