What’s New to Stream on Hulu for March 2018

Here’s what’s coming to Hulu this month!
By  · Published on March 5th, 2018

Hulu has been stuck in the third place position when it comes to movie streaming behind Netflix and Amazon Prime because most people still see them strictly as a home for next-day television. They have movies too, though, and more than a few of them are terrific gems that make Hulu a destination for more than just TV.

The complete list of new movies hitting Hulu this month — March 2018 — is below, but I wanted to highlight the best of the bunch along with several others worth seeking out.

The Best

Big practical action movies are a thing of the past in a lot of ways as CG is too-often the go-to tool for car chase scenes and stunts involving moving vehicles. Jonathan Mostow’s Breakdown (1997) is one of the last great action films to avoid that route and embrace practical stunt work instead, and the result is a terrifically entertaining action/suspense film. And I haven’t even told you that it stars Kurt Russell and J.T. Walsh yet!

For Action Junkies

Action fans should rejoice as two of last year’s absolute best action movies are hitting Hulu this month! First out of the gate is Wu Jing’s Wolf Warrior 2 (available 3/12) which cuts down on the first film’s jingoistic excess and ramps up the ridiculously fun action. Underwater martial arts, tank action, gun fights, and more await you including a great brawl between Wu and Frank Grillo. Takashi Miike’s Blade of the Immortal (available 3/15) leaves guns and motorized vehicles behind in favor of oodles of wickedly entertaining swordplay scenes that leaves bodies and body parts in their wake. Plus it’s funny!

Criminal Law

Serial Killer Thrillers

Those interested in darker thrills relying less on action and more on suspense will enjoy a pair of serial killer chillers in the form of Criminal Law (1989) and Jennifer 8 (1992). The former is a favorite of mine and sees good guy Gary Oldman squaring off against a creepy, sleazy, and deadly Kevin Bacon. It’s a mean-spirited delight. The latter is a bit more traditional in its execution, but Andy Garcia gives a solid lead performance as a cop pursuing a vicious murderer.

The Square

Last Year’s Best Foreign Langauge Film?

Force Majeure is a terrific comedy of manners from Sweden, and the director returned last year with an even bigger, funnier, and stranger comedy called The Square. It pokes fun at our construct of — and need for — art and questions what exactly the term even means in the face of human behaviors. Far from heady, though, the film is an absurd joy to experience as we watch one man’s perfectly organized life crumble beneath its own artifice.
