Happy Friday Storytellers! We are officially in the middle of January (how?!) and with that means this years movie season has begun! This month has given us some great (and terrible) movies both on-screen and streaming. However, next month is a promise of GOLDEN TIMES. I am so excited for the releases of next month that I decided to make a list of my most anticipated movie releases for the month of February. I know we are still in January–but I’m just THAT excited for these movies.
So sit back, relax, and bounce up and down with me as we countdown the days until release day!
Miss Bala (Feb 1)
Genre: Action, Drama, Thriller
Rated: PG 13
Directed: Catherine Hardwicke
Starring: Gina Rodriguez, Anthony Mackie, Ismael Cruz Cordova, Thomas Dekker
Gloria finds a power she never knew she had when she is drawn into a dangerous world of cross-border crime. Surviving will require all of her cunning, inventiveness, and strength. Based on the Spanish-language film.
I literally cannot wait for this film to premiere. I have been a big Hardwicke fan since Twilight (even if Twilight wasn’t her best work) and the line up of actors for this film is nothing short of amazing. Plus I am always and forever here for a badass Gina Rodriguez.
Alita: Battle Angel (Feb 15)
Genre: Action, Sci-fi, Romance, Adventure, Thriller
Directed: Robert Rodriguez
Starring: Rosa Salazar, Mahershala Ali, Jennifer Connelly, Eiza González
An action-packed story of one young woman’s journey to discover the truth of who she is and her fight to change the world.
Ya girl has been dying to see this movie since the trailer release late last year. I get super Avatar vibes from this animation/live action film; and I am always here to stretch and expand our abilities in the world of cinematography and graphics.
Isn’t It Romantic (Feb 15)
Genre: Romance, Comedy
Directed: Todd Strauss-Schulson
Starring: Rebel Wilson, Tom Ellis, Priyanka Chopra, Liam Hemsworth, Betty Gilpin
A young woman disenchanted with love mysteriously finds herself trapped inside a romantic comedy.
I am here for anything and everything Rebel Wilson does. I stan a comedic queen. Plus it is valentines and I’m single so obviously I’m gonna go watch this.
