(USA) Time for the fourth round of squeaky CGI squir­rel ad­ven­tures: Alvin, Si­mon and Theo em­bark on a road trip to stop their owner Dave from propos­ing to his new girl­friend. With plenty of squeaky Bruno Mars cov­ers in be­tween. Ugh­h­h­h­hhh. Opened Feb 4.

From Ve­gas to Ma­cau III

(Hong Kong/China) It’s CNY, so shitty block­buster se­quels abound: Chow Yun-fat re­turns as “God of Gam­blers” Ko Chun with an all-star cast (Andy Lau, Nick Che­ung, Jacky Che­ung and Ca­rina Lau) for yet an­other gam­bling es­capade to Ma­cau: This time in­volv­ing a bout of am­ne­sia, gra­tu­itous glamor shots of Stu­dio City, and plenty of di­rec­tor Wong Jing’s usual ridicu­lous­ness. Opens Feb 6.

The Good Di­nosaur

(USA) Dis­ney and Pixar’s lat­est long-awaited of­fer­ing is a tale of un­likely friend­ship be­tween a hu­man and an Apatosaurus named Arlo, in a world where di­nosaurs never went ex­tinct. The trailer al­ready has our eyes get­ting a lit­tle moist. Such kind­ness! Such ad­ven­ture! Opened Feb 4.

The Mon­key King 2

(Hong Kong) Fol­low­ing up from 2014’s re­hash of the well-known leg­end, Aaron Kwok plays Sun Wukong, the Mon­key King, af­ter pre­vi­ously play­ing bad­die the Bull De­mon King. With Sammo Hung as ac­tion di­rec­tor, you can still ex­pect plenty of 3D-tas­tic fly­ing kicks. Year of the Mon­key up­grade! Opened Feb 4.
