In "Jumper," a genetic anomaly allows Jamie Bell and Hayden Christensen to teleport anywhere in the world.
PINELLAS COUNTY - A number of new movie releases will be hitting the theaters on Feb. 14, including the following.

“Definitely, Maybe” – Ryan Reynolds stars as Will Hayes, a 30-something Manhattan dad in the midst of a divorce when his 10-year-old daughter, Maya (Abigail Breslin), starts to question him about his life before marriage. Maya wants to know absolutely everything about how her parents met and fell in love.

Will’s story begins in 1992, as a young, starry-eyed aspiring politician who moves to New York from Wisconsin in order to work on a presidential campaign. For Maya, Will relives his past as an idealistic young man learning the ins and outs of big city politics, and recoutns the history of his romantic relationships with three very different women.

Will hopelessly attempts a gentler version of his story for his daughter and changes the names so Maya has to guess who is the woman her father finally married. Is her mother Will’s college sweetheart, the dependable girl-next-door Emily (Elizabeth Banks)? Is she his longtime best friend and confidante, the apolitical April (Isla Fisher)? Or is she the free-spirited but ambitious journalist Summer (Rachel Weisz)? PG-13.

“Jumper” – This science fiction thriller follows the epic adventures of a man who discovers that he possesses the ability to instantly teleport anywhere in the world he can imagine. From New York to Tokyo, from the ruins of Rome to the heart of the Saharan Desert, anywhere is possible for David Rice (Hayden Christensen), until he begins to see that his freedom is not total, that he's not alone, but part of an ongoing, global war that threatens the very survival of his rare and extraordinary kind.

When Rice discovers another young man like himself – a fiery, globetrotting rebel named Griffin (Jamie Bell) – the truth of his existence begins to dawn. He is not just a lone freak of nature, but part of a long line of genetic anomalies known as Jumpers.

Now, Rice has now been identified by the secret organization sworn to kill him and all Jumpers ... and he is about to be relentlessly pursued in a chase that will literally bound around the planet as he becomes a key player in an unseen battle that has been raging, invisible to most of humanity, through the ages. PG-13.

“The Spiderwick Chronicles” – From the beloved best-selling series of books comes “The Spiderwick Chronicles,” a fantasy adventure for the child in all of us.

Peculiar things start to happen the moment the Grace family (Jared, his twin brother Simon, sister Mallory and their mom) leave New York and move into the secluded old house owned by their great, great uncle Arthur Spiderwick.

Unable to explain the strange disappearances and accidents that seem to be happening on a daily basis, the family blames Jared. When he, Simon and Mallory investigate what’s really going on, they uncover the fantastic truth of the Spiderwick estate and the creatures that inhabit it. PG.

“Step Up 2: The Streets” – In this follow-up to the smash hit “Step Up,” rebellious street dancer Andie (Briana Evigan) lands at the elite Maryland School of the Arts, she finds herself fighting to fit in while also trying to hold onto her old life. When she joins forces with the school’s hottest dancer Chase (Robert Hoffman) to form a crew of classmate outcasts to compete in Baltimore’s underground dance battle The Streets, she ultimately finds a way to live her dream while building a bridge between her two separate worlds. PG-13.
