In Movies & TV

Season two of "Jessica Jones," "300" and "Ghostbusters" are all headed your way in March.

What's new on Netflix in March 2018

Netflix killed Blockbuster – and now it's officially left any intention of taking on its role as the place to catch up on new movies in the graveyard with it. That's the biggest item from the newly announced list of films and TV shows coming to your screens in March: If you want a streaming service for the latest movies, to see the recent stuff you skipped in theaters (because, hey, you can only have so many arms and legs to spend), you're going to have to look elsewhere. That's not the company's game anymore.

That's not to say there aren't exciting additions to the streaming behemoth's library next month. For those yearning for the days when Zack Snyder's name attached to a movie was exciting, the bloody blockbuster "300" will hit Netflix on the first of the month, along with fellow box office hit "Ghostbusters," the unfortunately forgotten rom-com charmer "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," Martin Scorsese's crime saga "Casino" and modern cult classics like "Moon," "Wet Hot American Summer" and "The Descent."

And on the originals side of things, the long-awaited second season of Marvel's "Jessica Jones" will finally arrive alongside the triumphant returns of Joel McHale and ... Benji? Sure, Benji!

But if you're looking for any of the latest and greatest theatrical releases finally making their way to your small screen – or even from just the past five years or so – you'll have to keep waiting and hoping until next month. The only major release from the past year on Netflix's new additions is "True to the Game," a crime drama you've almost certainly just heard about right now.

Maybe this is just a light month, but the trends say the streaming service is simply not interested in being your video service anymore. It wants to be an original content producer, building a library of movies and TV shows you can exclusively watch on Netflix and differentiating themselves from the rest of the VOD world. Maybe you'll watch their creations, maybe you won't – and maybe you won't even realize they're available on the site. (Fun fact: Did you know a current Best Foreign Film nominee is available on Netflix right now? Feels like something the service would, or at least should, be interested in telling you about.) As long as you're subscribed, they're pleased.

And for many of you, that's a fine shift – I'd guess most people reading this almost certainly already have more than one streaming service, maybe Hulu or Amazon or HBO or even just renting new movies over iTunes. But if you have Netflix at the end of the year, it'll be almost solely because you like Netflix's originally made material. So I hope you very much enjoy the likes of "Bright," "The Cloverfield Paradox" and "When We First Met" (one of the many movies the site barely bothered to tell you exists) because that's what the future is. Outside movies and shows are coming and going from the site in shorter and shorter increments, and the newer blockbusters it does have – like Disney films – will disappear month by month this year as Netflix focuses on its own content and the House of Mouse focuses on its own service.

So yes, the rental service was once the new Blockbuster, but this year marks it's firmly betting on itself, its own ways and its own material. To win, Netflix needs you, but at the end of the year and at the end of this shift, how much will you need Netflix?

Anyways, here's what's coming to the streaming service for March 2018.
