There have been some surprises at the box office in recent months. Probably one of the biggest is the smash hit “Deadpool,” which has basically rewritten the book when it comes to R-rated “superhero” flicks. Ryan Reynolds has finally managed to shake off the burden of that glorious “Green Lantern” debacle, which nearly sank his career.

March brings a cornucopia of films for all tastes, including animated films for the kids, a story of heart and ambition against all odds (“Eddie the Eagle”), religious-themed stories, horror, action, comedy, and of course, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” where we’ll see a newly kitted out Wonder Woman for the first time.

Note that these were the correct release dates at press times, but they are subject to change. Check the Regal Camana Bay website to confirm.
