I Love You Phillip Morris—Easily misconstrued as a proclamation of adoration for the cigarette giant, Glenn Ficarra and John Requa's film relates the true story of con man Steve Jay Russell (Jim Carrey). When the multitalented Russell is imprisoned once again for his mischief, he falls in love with cellmate Phillip Morris, portrayed with delicately femininity by Ewan McGregor. Russell, soon released, uses his skills to free Morris from prison but their life together is plagued with Russell's misdeeds. (R )

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief—For most, the Empire State Building provides a majestic view of the New York City skyline. For Percy Jackson, it provides a portal to a new world. Jackson, the demigod son of Greek god Poseidon, teams up with the daughter of Athena and a satyr to stop a festering war between the gods. Uma Thurman and Pierce Brosnan also star in the tale of one boy's journey to return the stolen lightning bolt of Zeus, the ruler of Mt. Olympus. Chris Columbus, the veteran director of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, brings the novel by Rick Riordan to life. ( PG

Valentine's Day—Stuffed with star power, Gary Marshall (Pretty Women) directs this tale of 10 separate love stories taking place over Cupid's birthday. Gaggingly affectionate high-school athletes, a closeted football star and a desperate female executive pepper the diverse cast of characters. Julia Roberts, Jessica Alba, Patrick Dempsey, Jaime Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Ashton Kutcher, Queen Latifah and Kathy Bates star. (PG-13) Edwards 9, Edwards 22

The Wolfman—This is not your New Moon werewolf. Benicio del Torro stars as Lawrence Talbot in the remake of the 1941 classic film. Talbot ventures home to find his brother slain by a mysterious creature. Vowing to avenge his death with the support of his father (Anthony Hopkins) and brother's fiancee (Emily Blunt), Talbot becomes entrenched in the world of the beast. Hugo Weaving also stars as a suspicious and finely mustached Scotland Yard inspector. (R) Edwards 9, Edwards 22
