Usually when we talk about February and its releases, there isn’t a whole lot to talk about. But as we’ve seen over the last few years, especially 2016 (Deadpool) and 2017, February has kind of become the new May, where big(ger) releases are taking chances with the audiences in the early month.
As we saw last week, which featured three big releases, there is plenty of money to be made in February, with each of the new release making over $30 million. Now this weekends releases, it doesn’t seem like any are poised to make money like last weekend, mainly due to those movies still chugging along at the box-office. But that doesn’t mean you don’t just go see what’s coming out, because there are some decently fun looking movies hitting the screens this Friday.
With each of them making a solid last marketing push for this weekend, below I’ve collected a batch of new clips that have been released over the last few days for this weekends – and the weekends that follow – big releases. Check them out below and after doing so, let us know your thoughts of each movie in the comments. Which one are you most excited for? Is there any you aren’t interested in?
