February's unmissable movies! LEGO Batman, Fifty Shades Darker and more!

It's hard to believe but we're into February already, and we're kicking off the month with a look ahead to the epic movies arriving in Cineworld very soon.

Batman returns!

Well, we couldn't deny him his own slot, could we? Will Arnett's hilariously moody, cowl-wearing superhero stole the show in 2014's The LEGO Movie and now we're celebrating because he's finally got a solo movie in which to show off.

The LEGO Batman Movie promises to feature the same mix of quick-fire, geek-tastic humour and wonderfully imaginative visuals as its predecessor, as Batman teams with new sidekick Robin (Michael Cera) to take down The Joker (Zach Galifianakis). Plus, there's Oscar-winning Brit thesp Ralph Fiennes on board as loyal butler Alfred, Daredevil's Rosario Dawson as Batgirl and even The Empire Strikes Back's Billy Dee Williams as Two-Face. We're celebrating already. The movie is released on 10th February, with previews on 4th and 5th February.


Ana and Christian are back!

The E.L. James lovebirds burned up the screen in 2015's blockbuster hit Fifty Shades of Grey, and now the romance is set to sizzle once again. Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan return to their roles as Ana Steele and multi-millionaire Christian Grey, whose resurgent relationship is this time beset by dark secrets.

With James producing and her husband Niall Leonard writing the screenplay, this promises to bear even more of the author's imprint than its world-beating predecessor. Fifty Shades Darker is released on 10th February.


Classy drama

As it's Oscar month there's plenty of heavyweight stuff to sink your teeth into. Beginning on 3rd February, Matthew McConaughey is unrecognisable in prospecting drama Gold and Ruth Negga delivers an Oscar-nominated performance in the powerful Loving.

Then on 10th February, Life of Pi director Ang Lee returns with military war drama Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, based on the bestselling novel, and Denzel Washington pairs with an Oscar-nominated Viola Davis in his acclaimed awards favourite Fences, on limited release before going wide on 17th February.

Also on 17th February, Best Picture contender Moonlight goes on wide release, as does uplifting NASA drama Hidden Figures starring Oscar nominee Octavia Spencer. On the same day, Spotlight star Michael Keaton stuns as McDonalds founder Ray Kroc in The Founder and an all-star ensemble led by Annette Bening deliver an acting masterclass in the moving 20th Century Women.

And finally on 24th February, Mark Wahlberg re-teams with his Deepwater Horizon director Peter Berg for Patriots Day, another gripping and uncompromising look at shocking real-world events, in this instance the aftermath of the 2013 Boston bombing.


Insane action

Looking for something more pulse-pounding? Then don't miss Milla Jovovich once again cutting loose on hordes of the undead in latest Resident Evil movie, The Final Chapter. Want something to tide you over before you can make that Biohazard PS4 purchase? This is the answer.

Then on 17th February, we've got a double-whammy that begins with Chinese epic The Great Wall. Matt Damon stars in esteemed director Zhang Yimou's lavish historical action/monster movie, one that unfolds on a breathtaking scale.

On the same day, Keanu Reeves kicks ass again in John Wick: Chapter 2. Having reclaimed his action movie crown with 2015's surprise hit John Wick, Reeves is back for another stylishly designed slice of carnage.


Creepy horror

Looking for something to chill the spine and prickle the skin? Well, ghostly Samara is back for more undead vengeance on 3rd February in Rings, the reboot of the hit American horror series that was itself based on the sensational, long-running Japanese franchise.

And on 24th February, Chronicle actor Dane DeHaan is exposed to unorthodox health treatments in psychological thriller A Cure for Wellness, set at a remote and sinister Alpine spa in which dark secrets are contained... Pirates of the Caribbean and The Ring director Gore Verbinski unleashes a funhouse of horrors in this lavishly appointed chiller.
