What New Movies Start Friday, February 18th, 2011?

There are eight movies starting this Friday. Three open everywhere and another five are in limited release. It’s an interesting week, as there is actually two movies I want to see this weekend.

Opening Nationwide on Friday, February 18th:

Movie: Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son (PG-13)
Starring: Martin Lawrence, Brandon T. Jackson & Jessica Lucas
Genre: Comedy
Synopsis: A cop and his stepson put on disguises to figure out who a killer is at an all-girls school for the performing arts.
First Thoughts: The first one was fun, the second one wasn’t needed, so did we need a third.

Movie: I Am Number Four (PG-13)
Starring: Alex Pettyfer, Timothy Olyphant, Teresa Palmer & Dianna Agron
Genre: Sci-Fi Action Thriller
Synopsis: The first three are dead and he is Number Four. He is a fugitive that is trying to evade dangerous enemies trying to kill him. He moves all over and has to continually change his identity along with his guardian. After moving to a small town in Ohio, he falls in love for the first time, develops new abilities and finds connection with others like him.
First Thoughts: This is one of the movies that I’ve wanted to see since seeing the trailer the first time. Will be seeing it on Friday. It’s also available at IMAX.

Movie: Unknown (PG-13)
Starring: Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger, January Jones, Aidan Quinn, Bruno Ganz & Frank Langella
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Synopsis: A man comes out of a coma to find that he has lost his identity and not even his wife believes he is who he says he is. He goes about trying to prove his is right.
First Thoughts: It looks like it is similar to Taken and that was a kick-ass actioner. So, have kind of been looking forward to this one. Will go see it, but probably won’t be able to get to it until next week.
