Top Movie Picks for February

This year is off to a strong start for movies, and January 2024 has brought several great films to the docket. Not only is there the hilarious and fabulously queer Mean Girls, Netflix’s newest heartbreak Good Grief and Kevin Hart’s newest banger LiftFebruary shows no signs of slowing down or losing momentum, and we are so excited for these upcoming films. 


Argylle is the newest spy action comedy film from director Matthew Vaughn of Kingsman fame. Bryce Dallas Howard plays Elly Conway, a well-known yet reclusive author of an action series about a secret agent who goes by the name of Agent Argylle. She encounters a real-life spy on a train trip and soon learns that her books are more than fiction. It seems like everything that happens in her books also happens in real life! Now she is going on an action-packed adventure with Sam Rockwell and Henry Cavill that will answer the ultimate question: Who is Agent Argylle? 

Argylle is in theaters starting on February 2. Watch the trailer for Argylle here.

Lisa Frankenstein

Directed by Zelda Williams and written by Diablo Cody, Lisa Frankenstein is the movie for monster lovers to rise up. With all the love that both Venom movies got online, we’re not surprised to see this new horror romance flick with Katheyn Newton as the leading lady. This movie, described as a coming-of-rage story, is an 80s retelling of Frankenstein. Kathryn plays Lisa Swallows, a goth girl who’s a little different and falls in love with a corpse she brings to life. With that corpse, known as The Creature (Cole Sprouse), they go on a journey to find happiness and terrorize anyone who stands in the way of their love. How romantic. Lisa Frankenstein combines Frankenstein and the original Heathers with Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. We couldn’t be more excited.

Lisa Frankenstein is in theaters on February 8. Watch the trailer for Lisa Frankenstein here.

Madame Web

Madame Web comes out in February, but it feels like everyone knows about the newest installment of Sony’s Spider-Man Universe. The film is centered around Cassandra Webb (Dakota Johnson), a paramedic in Manhattan who develops psychic abilities after a terrible accident. She discovers that she has to protect three young women, including Julia Carpenter (Sydney Sweeney), from the villainous Ezekiel Sims (Tahar Rahim). Directed by S.J. Clarkson, this comic book movie will surely be interesting on the big screen. 

Madame Web hits theaters just in time for Valentine’s Day, February 14. Watch the trailer for Madame Web here.

Drive Away Dolls

Drive Away Dolls is directed  Ethan Coen with an exceptional cast, including Margaret QualleyGeraldine ViswanathanColman DomingoBeanie Feldstein, and Pedro Pascal. This comedy adventure follows Jamie (Qualley) and Marian’s (Viswanathan) adventure to Tallahassee. They’re in search of a little rest and relaxation after Jamie has a bad breakup with her girlfriend. Little do they know, the car they rented has a mysterious suitcase that’s going to cause them a world of trouble. We cannot wait to see this new Coen Brothers film, and our one wish is that Pedro Pascal’s The Collector doesn’t die in the first ten minutes.

Drive Away Dolls drives into theaters on February 23. Watch the trailer for Drive Away Dolls here.


Paprika, the anime film directed by Satoshi Kon, has been on our watchlist for ages. It’s getting a theater rerelease in February and we are extremely excited for it.  This 2006 Japanese sci-fi deserves the big screen. It follows a young female therapist named Doctor Atsuko Chiba, aka Paprika. In the film, a machine called the “DC Mini” allows therapists to venture into patients minds and their dreams is stolen, and things start to ugly. From what we hear, the story, based on a 1993 novel by Yasutaka Tsutsui, has some serious thriller elements.

Paprika will be in theaters again on February 7 through February 11 as part of Anime Cinema Nights in AMC Theaters. Watch the trailer for Paprika here.
