Official movie poster for the upcoming film "Fighting with My Family."

February is not usually considered a good month for movies (second-worst only to January), but this February in particular has a few surprises in store. Here are three movies to look out for this month.

Arctic (Feb. 1)

Just when audiences were getting sick of the survival movie genre, this new film promises to rejuvenate their excitement. Sold as a survival movie without any gimmicks, “Arctic” follows Mads Mikkelsen as he attempts to save both himself and a fellow passenger from a plane crash. How will he manage to do it? Well, you better get your ticket now.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part (Feb. 8)

“The Lego Movie” was one of the most surprising successes of the decade, and after two spin-off films, we are finally getting a direct sequel to the world where everything is awesome. Though the film’s reviews are mediocre, the film is sure to have some laugh-out-loud moments.

Fighting with My Family (Feb. 14)

Stephen Merchant, co-creator of the original British version of “The Office,” wrote and directed this true story about a girl who wants to start a career in the WWE. Produced by and starring Dwayne Johnson, this film is bound to be both hysterical and heartbreaking.

Those are just three of the many movies coming out this month, so make sure you go to the movies a few times to check them out for yourself.
