Scroll down to find out the nine must-sees of February.
The Coen Brothers deliver another one of their cult classics with this stunningly-shot film about a Hollywood “fixer” (Josh Brolin), who is trying to keep his set of out-of-control stars out of trouble. Look for beautiful 1950s-inspired costumes and lots of beautiful faces including Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, George Clooney, and more.
Is this the next Notebook? The latest Nicholas Sparks book-to-movie stars Benjamin Walker and Teresa Palmer as neighbors who fall in love. When tragedy strikes, they have to figure out what to do—and it’s a choice that will change their lives. Yes, it’s sappy, but sometimes you just need a good chick flick. This delivers.
If you want something that will make you smile and probably tear up, go for Tumbledown. Starring Rebecca Hall as a widow who struggles to overcome the loss of her husband, she only finds herself smiling again when a New York writer named Andrew McDonnell (Jason Sudeikis) forces his way into her life. Dianna Agron and Joe Manganiello co-star in this non-traditional romantic comedy.
Ryan Reynolds stars as Marvel’s latest action hero, taking on the iconic role of special forces operative Wade Wilson, who turns into a superpower named Deadpool after a botched experiment. He has healing powers as a result, but is also left severely disfigured and on the hunt to unleash revenge on the person who ruined his life.
How to Be Single
Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) are back to flash their Blue Steels all over the globe, and this time the fashion world is on their side.

Fun fact: Justin Theroux (aka Mr. Jennifer Ansiton) co-wrote the film.
Crazy About Tiffany’s
This documentary uncovers the allure behind Tiffany & Co., from its instantly recognizable Tiffany blue color to its birthing of the modern-day obsession with the engagement ring, to the iconic film starring Aubrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Find out things you never knew about the storied brand, plus, Jessica Biel, Katie Couric, Rachel Zoe, and Baz Luhrmann all appear to make their love for Tiffany’s officially known.

You won’t be able to miss the astounding stunt work—it will blow you away.
Eddie the Eagle
This is the underdog story of the year. Taron Egerton stars as Eddie Edwards in this sports drama, which tells the tale of the first ski jumper in Great Britain’s history.
