By Michelle Vaccaro,

Looking for a movie to bring your loved one to this Valentine’s Day weekend? There’s a new romance from The Notebook’s Nicholas Sparks and a Romeo & Juliet type of love story, but with witches.

Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's best-selling series is hitting the big screen in Beautiful Creatures. It's story of a young woman with supernatural powers on the verge of becoming good or evil. The PG-13 film chronicles the love between her and a young man trying to flee his small town. Despite being madly love, their relationship is doomed as outside forces try to tear them apart. The Sci-fi romance plays for two hours and three minutes.

The love story between a mysterious young woman and a widowed father of two is told in Safe Haven. The PG-13 film is an adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook) novel. After a slow start, their love blossoms, but her hidden past begins to get in the way. The romantic drama stars Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough. It plays for one hour and fifty-five minutes.

After receiving a call of distress, an alien astronaut heads to earth to help out in Escape from Planet Earth.
