Opening this Week: Valentine’s Day Romance With “Safe Haven,” “Beautiful Creatures,” and…”Die Hard 5″

posted by Nell Minow

This week’s releases are opening a day early for your Valentine’s Day enjoyment.  Those looking for a date night movie  on February 14 have two choices, both based on popular books.  Nicholas Sparks’ Safe Haven is the story of a woman running from her past (Julianne Hough) who meets a small-town widower with two children (Josh Duhamel). Also set in a small southern town, Beautiful Creatures is a supernatural teen romance about a mortal boy and a “caster” girl with magical powers.  It stars Alden Ehrenreich and Alice Englert as the young couple and Viola Davis, Jeremy Irons, Emmy Rossum, and Emma Thompson as the adults in their lives who bring complications, help, and sometimes both.

Then there’s a bit of counter-programming with the fifth of the “Die Hard” series.  Bruce Willis returns as John McClane in “A Good Day to Die Hard.”  Twenty-three years after Christmas at the Nakatomi Plaza, McClane will be Yippy-Ki-Yaying in Russian as his adventures take him to Moscow.
