February is shaping up to be the month of romantic comedies. The month kicks off with Natalie Portman starring in “The Other Woman”, which is a limited release. Portman seems to be having a big year with a Golden Globe win for Best Actress for her work in “The Black Swan” and she is currently the front runner for the Oscars as well. “Sanctum” also opens the month produced by James Cameron (“Avatar”). Can Sanctum get some of Avatar’s success?
Mid-month we have Channing Tatum (“Step Up”) starring in “The Eagle”, the story of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet acted out by gnomes in “Gnomeo & Juliet”, and the rom com “Just Go with It” starring Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. Bieber fever also makes it to the big screen with the film “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” in 3D/2D.
Toward the end of the month there’s “Hall Pass” starring Owen Wilson and “I am Number Four”, which has the potential of being a hit or a big miss.
My spotlight pick of the month is “Waiting for Forever”. A little romance and a little drama is quite apropro for the month of commercial marketing.
