For the mommies, daddies, kuyas and ates, here are some movies to watch out and plan for this February love month . . .
Opening the Love Month is the highly anticipated sequel to the 2008 Bollywood hit, Race 2. Starting February 8, movie lovers can follow the story of Ranvir Singh (Saif Ali Khan) and retired cop Robert D’Acosta (Anil Kapoor) as they team up to avenge the death of Singh’s wife. Catch this heart-stopping thriller movie exclusively at SM Megamall.
Meanwhile, just in time for Valentine’s Day is the romantic-comedy movie Playing for Keeps which features an all-star cast led by Gerard Butler, Jessica Biel, Dennis Quaid, Uma Thurman and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
Gerard Butler plays George, a burnt-out professional soccer player who decides to take a break from the professional arena and return to his home town in Virginia. Determined to win back his ex-wife (Jessica Biel) and their son (Noah Lomax), he decides to take the coaching job of their local junior league soccer team. However, with every cougar soccer mom’s eye on his good looks and physique, he has a difficult time focusing on his goals.
For those looking for heart-pounding thrills on Valentine’s Day, SM Cinema offers the slasher movie, Smiley. Caitlin Gerard (from the movie, Magic Mike) plays Ashley, a young woman convinced that the urban legend Smiley, a murderous maniac who can be summoned from the Internet, is no more than a myth. But Smiley exists and he won’t rest until Ashley is proven wrong in a pool of her own blood.
On February 20, SM Cinema premieres the local romantic-drama Iliw, featuring Kaye Abad, Ping Medina, and Japanese actor Hiroyuki Takashima. Set in 1939 during the Japanese occupation of the Philippines, the movie tells the story of Fidela (Kaye Abad) who moves to Baguio from her hometown in Vigan to avoid the romantic advances of her childhood friend, Pablo (Ping Medina). When Fidela’s father is captured by the Japanese Imperial Army on suspicion of Treason, she is forced to return home. A chance encounter with a high ranking Japanese officer, Col. Takahashi (Hiroyuki Takashima) changes both their lives forever.
Also opening on February 20 is the fast-paced action-thriller movie, Snitch. Featuring Dwayne Johnson, he plays the role of a father who goes on a dangerous mission to save his son from being imprisoned after being wrongly accused of a drug distribution crime.
