Nicholas Sparks has done it again.

A Week In Movies: Beautiful Creatures Opens, Tom Cruise Visits A Post-apocalyptic Earth And Billy Crystal And John Goodman Reunite In Monsters University

Being Valentine's Day week, cinemas are flooded with romantic movies like the new teen franchise-launcher Beautiful Creatures. US audiences can also weep their way through the new Nicholas Sparks drama Safe Haven, while in the UK couples instead can laugh at Judd Apatow's epic rom-com This Is 40 and the clunky British farce Run For Your Wife. And for alternative viewing, there's the ultimate date movie A Good Day to Die Hard, Bruce Willis' fifth instalment in the crashing, exploding franchise.

And this kind of action dominates the week's new selection of trailers, starting with the very explosive-looking Olympus Has Fallen, starring Gerard Butler as a Secret Service agent trying to retake the White House after a terrorist invasion. The muscly cast includes Morgan Freeman, Aaron Eckhart, Angela Bassett and Melissa Leo. It opens in March.

Will 'A Good Day To Die Hard' Be The Worst Movie To Top The Box Office?


Bruce Willis Nicholas Sparks

Could 'A Good Day To Die Hard' be the worst movie to ever top the U.S box office? It will almost certainly be amongst the worst to take over $50 million on its opening weekend, as it is expected to do over the coming days. The fifth instalment in Bruce Willis's action franchise has been derided by critics and currently holds a score of just 14% on the Rotten Tomatoes review aggregating site (down 2% in 24 hours).

20th Century Fox anticipated a softer opening of around $40 million though industry analysts suggest the movie will take at least $10 million more than that. Either way, the competition don't stand a chance this weekend, with 'Safe Haven' likely to finish second with takings of around $25 million. Relativity Media will settle for second place, given romance author Nicholas Sparks' latest film adaptation cost less than one-third as much to make as the fifth Die Hard. Another movie - Beautiful Creatures - could prove to be a potential rival for Safe Haven and should take around $22 million over the long President's Day weekend. Animated 3-D movie 'Escape From Planet Earth' is likely to gross around $19 million during its first four days.

'A Good Day to Die Hard,' was made on a budget of around $92 million and follows Willis' John McClane character as he teams up with his long-estranged CIA agent son in Moscow. The popular movies have pulled in millions at the box-office and new instalments are pretty much guaranteed to be big hits. The highest grossing film in the franchise 'Live Free or Die Hard,' started off with $33.4 million in June 2007 and went on to collect $134.5 million domestically.

Stoker Trailer


Updates From Sundance Film Festival And The London Critics' Circle Awards Plus Trailers For, Stoker, Emperor And Red 2

As the Sundance Film Festival continues in Utah, buzz is emerging about the new Nicole Kidman movie Stoker, in which she plays the widowed mother of teen Mia Wasikowska as they deal with the arrival of the unexpectedly sexy Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode). From the director of Old Boy, a new trailer depicts the film as a stylish, warped and very black comedy. It comes to cinemas on March 1st.

Here in Britain, two leading awards contenders open this week. Steven Spielberg's Lincoln stars Daniel Day-Lewis, the front-runner in the Best Actor race. This would be his unprecedented third win in the category. And Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty stars Jessica Chastain, who is currently the favourite for Best Actress, although Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook is giving her some serious competition.

But no one should write off iconic French actress Emmanuelle Riva's astonishing turn in Amour. She won the London Critics' Circle Film Award for Best Actress on Sunday. The London critics also gave Amour their Film of the Year title, and it's up for Best Picture at the Oscars as well.

The Last Song Review


Good
Novelist Sparks turns screenwriter with this film, which combines his usual themes (beaches, grieving teens, cancer) as a vehicle for Cyrus to put her childhood career behind her. It's exactly what we expect, but it's also fairly watchable.

The summer after her high school graduation, rebellious Ronnie (Cyrus) and her precocious little brother Jonah (Coleman) are driven by their mum (Preston) from New York to the Georgia coast to stay with their estranged father (Kinnear). After sulking around in a huff, Ronnie starts to soften a bit, befriending shirtless volleyball hunk Will (Hemsworth). And as their romance grows, she starts warming up to her dad as well. But dark rumours, Will's snobby parents (Vernon and Searcy) and Ronnie's troubled friend Blaze (Chaikin) create various problems, as does the dreaded C-word.

Nights In Rodanthe Review


Very Good
With the Gulf Coast narrowly dodging Gustav and the Houston area recuperating from Ike, now might not be the best time for a breathy romance that uses the violent lashing of a vicious hurricane to simulate foreplay between passionate lovers.

It's hard to fault director George C. Wolfe, however. His Nights in Rodanthe adaptation merely adheres to a blueprint provided by best-selling author Nicholas Sparks, who makes use of a tempest in his source novel but also provides earnest human connections and palpable heartache.
