What would happen if the Moon was heading straight for Earth?

The new sci-fi disaster movie Moonfall follows two astronauts, Halle Berry and Patrick Wilson, who team up to prevent the Moon from colliding with our planet.

Yet, as countless other movies have shown before, things tend to get chaotic when it comes to space.

What will the astronauts discover during the seemingly ill-fated mission?

Moonfall crashes into theaters on February 4.

A star-studded cast, glitzy 1930s fashion and juicy murder.

That alone should be enough to sell anyone Agatha Christie’s mystery thriller Death on the Nile.

Based on a 1937 novel of the same name, the world’s favorite detective Hercule Poirot, taken over by Kenneth Branagh, returns to discover a grim death aboard the SS Karnak.

When a passenger is killed on the illustrious ship, it’s up to Poirot to unravel the mystery on the river before disaster strikes again.

The good old-fashioned thriller Death on the Nile hits theaters on February 11.

Marry me

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Jennifer Lopez is back in romantic comedies with her latest outing, Marry Me.

The singer plays a singer – of course – who publicly learns of her partner’s infidelity and decides to change drastically.

Owen Wilson stars alongside Jenny From the Block as an outsider who unwittingly proposes to her, and due to her grief, she accepts.

What will happen to these two very different individuals who will be immersed in a false relationship?

Let’s hope for a little romance. And a few laughs too.

Grab someone special and watch Marry Me, in theaters February 11.

It looks like a lot of exciting movies are hitting theaters this month, so get your ticket!
