It's Valentine's Day, and so Endless Love is in theaters.

Gabriella Wilde plays a rich girl who falls in love with the guy who takes her precious innocence, played Alex Pettyfer. You may remember Gabriella as Sue Snell in the "Carrie" remake. Bruce Greenwood plays her overprotective father.

Also in time for heart's day is Winter's Tale.

Colin Farrell stars in this supernatural love story as a thief who falls in love with a dying heiress in the early 1900s. She's played by Jessica Brown Findlay from "Downton Abbey" . . . and Russell Crowe plays a DEMON trying to thwart their eternal love.

Jennifer Connelly and Will Smith are also in it. She's a journalist helping Farrell in modern day New York. And Will has an uncredited cameo as Russell Crowe's boss.

In talking about casting Will Smith, the director told "Variety", quote, "I wanted the most charming man in the world to play the Devil. And he's the most charming man in the world."

 

Another date movie is About Last Night.

Kevin Hart and "Almost Human's" Michael Ealy star in this romantic comedy about two couples who end up in VERY different relationships.

Kevin is in a volatile relationship with Regina Hall while Michael is romancing Regina's roommate, Joy Bryant.

 

"Adult World" stars Emma Roberts as a college girl who graduates thinking she's going to become the next great poet . . . but ends up working at a SEX SHOP instead.

John Cusack is a poet she stalks in the hope that he'll mentor her.

 

And finally the remake of 1987's ROBOCOP is in theaters.

Joel KinnaMan from AMC's "The Killing" is your Robocop. He plays Alex Murphy, a cop who's fatally wounded and brought back to life as a cyborg.

Michael Keaton is the CEO of OmniCorp, the company that builds him.

Gary Oldman is the doctor who wipes Murphy's memory, Abbie Cornish is Murphy's wife, and Samuel L. Jackson plays a right-wing type TV presenter.

The 1987 original starred Peter Weller and Nancy Allen, and is considered a smart, gory, sci-fi classic. It spawned two sequels, an animated series, comic books, videogames, a 1994 TV series, and a TV mini-series that aired in 2000.

The remake is actually quite good.
