Hi guys! Its the month of love and there are tons of movies to look out for. Even though some are mushy-filled with romantic story-lines for those breathing the love in the air, others are for the brave hearts who just want to watch a good movie alone or with friends and family without feeling lovesick. Here’s a limited list of awesome movies this month…
- Fifty Shades Darker:
Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) and Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey) return with the next installment in the Fifty Shades book series. In this part, Anastasia “Ana” Steele tries to move on from her relationship with Christian Grey while a wounded Christian convinces her to resume their romance under Ana‘s conditions. As the couple begins their normal relationship, Christian‘s past threatens to tear the couple apart. We’ve all read the books (well, most if us I presume) and we know how things end but personally it is always a good feeling to see if a movie is just as good as how my mind envisioned the book. Fifty Shades Darker is set to be released 10th February.
- Tulip Fever:
This is a love story also based on a novel about an artist who falls for a married young woman while he was hired to paint her portrait by her husband. Cast includes Alicia Vikander as Sophia
Dane DeHaan as Jan Van Loos, Zach Galifianakis as Gerrit, Judi Dench as The Abbess of St. Ursula and Christoph Waltz as Cornelis Sandvoort. Tulip Fever is scheduled to be released 24th February.
- Fist Fight:
Ice Cube (Ron Strickland) and Charlie Day (Andy Campbell) star in this comedy about teachers “settling scores” in the parking lot on the last day of school year. Campell accidentally crosses his much tougher and deeply feared colleague, Strickland, who challenges Campbell to an old-fashioned throw down after school. News of the fight spreads like wildfire and ends up becoming the very thing the school needed. Fist Fight also stars Tracy Morgan (30 Rock), Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street), Dean Norris (Breaking Bad), Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Dennis Haysbert (The Unit), and JoAnna Garcia Swisher (The Astronaut Wives Club). The hilarious comedy will be released on 17th February.
- John Wick: Chapter 2 :
First off, I did not enjoy the first part of this movie and I’m not really looking forward to this but would still see it. I mean, the legendary hit-man is back, who am I to ignore? Also, Ruby Rose stars in this sequel and I am a major fan of hers so, another reason to see it. Chapter two has John Wick (Keanu Reeves) forced out of retirement once again as he heads to Rome to face off with the world’s deadliest killers. This action thriller would be released 10th February.
- A Cure For Wellness:
Horror fans just have to see this psychological horror thriller which stars Dane DeHaan, Jason Isaacs and Mia Goth. It follows a young ambitious executive who is sent to a mysterious rehabilitation center in the Swiss Alps to retrieve his company’s CEO. He starts to suspect that the spa’s miraculous treatments are not what they seem and his sanity is tested as he finds himself diagnosed with the same curious illness that keeps all the guests there longing for the cure. A cure for wellness is set to be released 17th February.
- The Space Between Us:
This romantic science fiction is about a young boy (Gardner Elliot), born on Mars, who meets a friend online (Tulsa) and visits earth to meet her, but soon discovers that his organs cannot survive Earth’s gravity. Gardner and Tulsa attempt to see more of the Earth before it is too late. Starring actors such as Asa Butterfield, Gary Oldman, Britt Robertson and Carla Gugino, The Space Between us is set to be released 3rd February.
