New Movies: Release Calendar for March 10, Plus Where to Watch the Latest Films

10 March 2023

Oh, yes, it’s another quiet week at the box office, as Hollywood buckles down to prepare for Sunday evening’s Oscars. But as thin as the overall picks are at the multiplex right there, there are (as always) some winners to be found. Most notably, the next “Scream” film in the ever-evolving franchise, a brutal and clever new addition to the cheeky horror series.

That alone would be scary enough to terrify other competitors, but there are also a handful of sly counter-programming picks, like Bobby Farrelly’s sweet-natured “Champions,” Scott Beck and Bryan Woods’ Adam-Driver-fights-dinosaurs actioner “”65,” and the feel-good Disney+ streaming pick “Chang Can Dunk.”

Those out of the way? Yeah, we feel ya, we’re gonna be watching nothing but Oscars, too.

Each film is now available in a theater near you or in the comfort of your own home (or, in some cases, both, the convenience of it all). Browse your options below.

Week of March 10 – March 16

New Films in Theaters

As new movies open in theaters during the COVID-19 pandemic, IndieWire will continue to review them whenever possible. We encourage readers to follow the safety precautions provided by CDC and health authorities. Additionally, our coverage will provide alternative viewing options whenever they are available.

“Champions” (directed by Bobby Farrelly)
Distributor: Focus Features
Where to Find It:
 Theaters

Does “Champions” have its heart in the right place? That question, with regards to Bobby Farrelly’s latest starring Woody Harrelson, is honestly harder to answer than one might think. The film, directed by Farrelly and written by Mark Rizzo (who adapted it from the 2018 Spanish feature “Campeones”), casts Harrelson as a troublemaking basketball coach who, after a DUI gets sentenced to 90 days of community service helping a team of young adults with intellectual disabilities.

On one hand, Farrelly has made an earnest attempt at a feel-good comedy, complete with its share of moments meant to tear-jerk about an underdog team subverting prejudice. On the other, it operates from a place of ignorance that assumes its audience will laugh at that ignorance and recognize it in themselves. “Champions” makes jokes about the r-word being a “no no word,” but it also seems a little too eager to use that word itself, as said jokes prove. Read IndieWire’s full review.

“Scream VI” (directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett)
Distributor: Paramount
Where to Find It:
 Theaters

If there’s one thing we’re supposed to take away from “Scream VI,” it’s that this meta horror series is officially a franchise now. Of course, the idea that it wasn’t already would certainly be news to Paramount executives. Any series that lasts long enough to spawn six movies is a franchise in the literal sense of the word. But up to this point, the Wes Craven-created property had gone to great lengths to differentiate itself from the slasher franchises it loves to lampoon.

While “Scream VI” still features its share of meta humor, it leaves no doubt that this universe is now fleshed out enough to support an infinite number of sequels that aren’t parodies of industry trends. And the film’s ability to shine without the involvement of Craven (who died in 2015) is a clear sign that the “Scream” series can afford to lose any of its key players if it’s smart about replacing them. Read IndieWire’s full review.
