Every Friday, I will be bringing you the movies that are being released that day. Here are the movies being released nationwide on Friday, February 12th:
A film that seems to have every major Hollywood actor in it, the story follows the intertwining lives of several people in Los Angeles on Valentine's Day. Read my full review here.
Lawrence Talbot's childhood ended the night his mother died. After he left the sleepy Victorian hamlet of Blackmoor, he spent decades recovering and trying to forget. But when his brother's fiancée, Gwen Conliffe, tracks him down to help find her missing love, Talbot returns home to join the search. He learns that something with brute strength and insatiable bloodlust has been killing the villagers, and that a suspicious Scotland Yard inspector named Aberline has come to investigate. As he pieces together the gory puzzle, he hears of an ancient curse that turns the afflicted into werewolves when the moon is full. Now, if he has any chance at ending the slaughter and protecting the woman he has grown to love, Talbot must destroy the vicious creature in the woods surrounding Blackmoor. But as he hunts for the nightmarish beast, a simple man with a tortured past will uncover a primal side to himself-one he never imagined existed.
Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief
It's the 21st century, but the gods of Mount Olympus and assorted monsters have walked out of the pages of high school student Percy Jackson's Greek mythology texts and into his life. And they're not happy: Zeus' lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Even more troubling is the sudden disappearance of Percy's mother. As Percy finds himself caught between angry and battling gods, he and his friends embark on a cross-country adventure to catch the true lightning thief, save Percy's mom, and unravel a mystery more powerful than the gods themselves.
I had the opportunity to see Valentine's Day earlier this week and thought it was a really cute movie. I may go see The Wolfman...I tend to like movies that are about mythical creatures, and Percy Jackson is directed by the same person that did the first Harry Potter movies, so I'm interested in that one as well.
Are you wanting to see any of these movies?
