MoviefiedNYC Opening this Weekend: February 12 & 14

Adult World – Emma Roberts and John Cusack

Traditionally, January has been a dumping ground for poor-quality films. There is a valid reason for this: the weather. However, releasing a two-hundred-million-dollar blockbuster in a month possibly filled with blizzards is not the most fiscally-wise choice. Distributors want to launch their films when people can actually get to the theaters. Although we begin to see a little improvement in regards to the quality of films being released in February, the percentage of good movies remains fairly low.
So, whether you choose to check out that indie you heard so much about or the latest big studio release, don’t forget to click on the movie title below to view the trailer. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.

February 12 

Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) a loving husband, father and good Detroit cop is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp (great creepy corporate name) sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on that there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice. Gary Oldman and Michael Keaton also star in RoboCop from director Jose Padilha and writer James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man). Peter Weller (original RoboCop) you are irreplaceable in eyes.

About Last Night

Directed by Steve Pink (Hot Tub Time Machine) and written by Leslye Headland (Bachelorette), About Last Night is a contemporary remake of the David Mamet film of the same name from 1986. The story follows two couples as they find new love, journeying from the bar to the bedroom and are eventually put to the test in the real world. Kevin Hart (The Five Year Engagement, Think Like a Man) stars with Regina Hall, Michael Ealy and Joy Bryant in tow. I’m losing track of how many films Kevin Hart has made this past year. This is one hard working man. 

Endless Love

Writer-director Shana Feste (Country Strong) tells the story of a privileged girl and a charismatic boy whose instant desire sparks a love affair made only more reckless by parents trying to keep them apart. I’m waiting for the Lifetime release. 

Vampire Academy

Mark Waters (Mean Girls, Freaky Friday, Mr. Popper’s Penguins) directs Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters adapted from Richelle Mead’s bestselling series of young adult books. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human/vampire, guardians of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discretely within our world. Her legacy is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi. 

Winter’s Tale

Winter’s Tale is the directorial debut of Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind) is fantasy romance set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century.  Colin Farrell plays a thief who falls in love with a dying young woman (Jessica Brown Findlay) after he breaks into her palatial home on Manhattan’s West Side. But Russell Crowe plays a gangster boss hell-bent on making sure Farrell doesn’t end up happy. This is a story of miracles, crossed destinies, the age-old battle between good and evil, and of course never-ending love. And yet I’m still not sure what to make of this.

Date and Switch directed by Chris Nelson (Ass Backwards) tells the story of two guys who make a pact to lose their virginity before prom find their friendship tested when one of them comes out of the closet.
