“Jupiter Ascending”
Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) always thought she was destined for greatness. Unfortunately, the string of previous jobs involving the cleaning of toilets has so far proven otherwise. However, when Caine (Channing Tatum), an extraterrestrial ex-military hunter, arrives at her doorstep and explains that her DNA is a match for an exceptional inheritance, Jupiter finds herself at odds with a power-hungry villain (Eddie Redmayne) set on claiming Earth as his own. Written, produced and directed by The Wachowskis (“The Matrix” Series, “V for Vendetta,” “Speed Racer,” “Cloud Atlas”), this film should surely not be missed. Release date is Feb. 6.

“Fifty Shades of Grey”
If you have no idea what this film will entail, I guarantee you’ll be in for a surprise. Based off the first entry into the best-selling novel series that has topped 100 million sales, “Fifty Shades of Grey” follows Anastasia “Ana” Steele (Dakota Johnson), a 21-year-old Washington State University Vancouver student who gets an opportunity of a lifetime to interview 27-year-old Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), a young, handsome entrepreneur. What starts out as an innocent experience soon morphs itself into an erotic BDSM relationship. Prepare to get steamy in this saucy surprise. Release date is Feb. 13.

“Hot Tub Time Machine 2”
In the sequel from the same guys that brought you the classic cult film, “Hot Tub Time Machine,” Lou (Rob Corddry), Nick (Craig Robinson) and Jacob (Clark Duke) find themselves firing up the hot tub time machine when they find themselves in trouble. Instead of landing in the past, the gang finds themselves in the future and meet the unexpected Adam Jr. (Adam Scott), who explains how terribly they have all turned. Now, in order to save themselves in the future, they must take the tub machine back to the past which, for them, is still ahead of their present… Release date is Feb. 20.
