Most Anticipated February Movie Releases

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)

Miss Bala (2019) PosterGenre: Action, Drama, Thriller
Rated: PG 13
Directed: Catherine Hardwicke
Starring: Gina RodriguezAnthony MackieIsmael Cruz CordovaThomas 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)

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)

Isn't It Romantic (2019) PosterGenre: Romance, Comedy
Rated: PG-13

    Honestly the one reason I miss MoviePass subscription is not paying attention to movies anymore. WAH!

    What Men Want! I am so ready to see that movie and laugh out loud 😀 I can’t wait to see that one and also Isn’t It Romantic because it looks funny too ^.^ I hadn’t heard of Miss Bala until now but it sounds so good DD: I am off to watch the trailer.
    Of course, if there is any How to Train Your Dragon movie I am going to watch it. That one included 😉

    so tbh most of the movie trailers I’ve seen have been on instagram, but Miss Bala looks awesome and the cast is 💯
    ditto Isn’t It Romantic, Rebel Wilson is fantastic! though for the longest time I thought it was Chris Hemsworth, not Liam? I think the accent threw me off; I associate them most strongly with Thor and Gale Hawthorne, respectively 😅 and OMG I didn’t know Priyanka Chopra was in it too! definitely a must-see.

    For some reason all the trailers of Alita really creep me out 🤔I’m sure it will be a cool film but the amount of CGI they use for Alita, while all the other characters are mostly human/don’t have hugely CGI-ed faces, is just… disturbing. It will be interesting to see what you think, though!

    Isn’t It Romantic actually sounds interesting. I rarely go to a movie theater but I wouldn’t mind seeing that.

    I’m super ready for Miss Bala. It gives me big Queen of the South vibes and I love that show. I’m not that big into movies *hides from Sam* BUT I will watch Miss Bala.
