Movie Hype: Smoking Causes Coughing, RRR Fan CelebRRRation LIVE & Michelle Yeoh Kicks Ass

Magnet Releasing will release Smoking Causes Coughing from one of our fav directors Quentin Dupieux (MANDIBLES, RUBBER). The movie is in theaters and on demand March 31, 2023.

Think about the Power Rangers, but it all going very terribly wrong and you'll want to see how weird it gets in Quentin Dupieux latest. Been looking forward to this one since it came out on the festival circuit.

Join director S.S. Rajamouli, star Ram Charan, composer M.M. Keeravaani, and special guests for the world's largest screening of RRR! By now, it’s hard to imagine anyone who has not at least heard of S.S. Rajamouli’s earth-shattering, bone-breaking epic – but for those who are just joining us, here it is one more time: when the paths of the fearless villager Bheem (N.T. Rama Rao Jr.) and Alluri Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan), an officer in the British army, cross over the kidnapping of a child from Bheem’s village, neither of them are aware of each other’s hidden agenda – what is at stake is not just their friendship or the fate of the child but a chance to truly alter fate of their nation towards revolution and freedom.

Starting Friday, March 3rd, the RRR Fan CelebRRRation will hit over 200 theaters across the US via Variance Films and Sarigama Cinemas.  The original Telugu version of the film will be back on the big screen, playing everywhere from big-city megaplexes to the leading independent art houses to small town venues, a historic third theatrical release in less than a year.

The Criterion Channel has some special movies for a special lady this March. In them she kick a lot of butt.

As she reaches new heights of acclaim for her dazzling, Oscar-nominated performance in the breakout smash Everything Everywhere All at Once, now is the perfect time to revisit the sensational career of Michelle Yeoh. Before conquering Hollywood, the Malaysian-born actor established herself as one of Hong Kong cinema’s fiercest action heroes—performing whirlwind martial-arts choreography with an acrobatic grace that reflected her early training as a dancer. Whether executing superhero stunts in Johnnie To’s action classic The Heroic Trio or taking the wuxia genre to new heights of international success in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Yeoh commands the screen with astonishing power and charisma.
