February isn’t often regarded as the season of cinematic brilliance, but this year doesn’t look so bad. While there are a few long shots, Cronenberg’s Maps in Our Stars and the highly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey film offset the dreary stuff. So whether you choose to checkout that indie movie you’ve 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 theatre.

Synopsis: In this half-Western, Natalie Portman stars as Jane, a woman who fled her life within a gang. She finds herself back in in their midst once again when they kill her innocent husband who simply got caught in the crossfire.
