Cinema Releases 22 March 2019: A Bad Week?

This week is a little sparse on big releases with many still waiting for Captain Marvel to quieten down but that give three smaller films a chance to shine as they hit UK cinemas. One of those is directed by and starring Ralph Fiennes, it’s a drama called The White Crow. If you prefer the horror genre then maybe Us will be more to your liking. In any case it’s time to take a closer a look at what’s on offer this week in movieland, here are the cinema releases 22 March 2019 for the United Kingdom & USA.

Final Thought – Cinema Releases 22 March 2019 & Box Office Charts

It’s a pretty poor week at the cinema this week with none of the three UK release impressing any of us, that said no doubt Five Feet Apart will strike a chord with many. Meanwhile Captain Marvel continues to dominate at the box office on both sides of the Atlantic.

Next week see the return of a Disney classic with the new Tim Burton Dumbo film.

As you can see we’ve added in the UK Blu-ray and DVD charts covering all of the top 30 plus all the new releases from the top 100.
