With its jam-packed star-studded cast, Garry Marshall's aptly titled Valentine's Day is fittingly out this weekend. Starring Jennifer Garner, Julia Roberts, Aston Kutcher and Jessica Alba (to name a few), the flick follows an intermingle of couples and singles who are all trying to deal with the demands of Valentine's Day in a series of secrets and mishaps.
If love is not in the air for you this weekend, check out Joe Johnston's reincarnation of the classic werewolf tale, The Wolfman. The film is set in Victorian England and stars Benecio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins and Emily Blunt. After enduring the bite of a werewolf, Del Toro's character begins a transformation, gaining a moon-inspired temper.
Also out this weekend is fantasy-adventure flick, Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, directed by Chris Columbus. Reportedly based on a Rick Riordan novel, the film is an adaptation of Greek mythology. Logan Lerman stars as the title character who discovers he's the offspring of Poseidon, which leads him to embark on a journey with his fellow mystical friends, in order to rescue his mother while eluding the wrath of Hades.
