Movie lovers are getting a range of new content to stream this month.
In February, streaming services like Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video and others are introducing new films across genres like romance, sci-fi, drama and horror. Netflix has perhaps one of the most anticipated projects this month, “Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” which takes place nearly 50 years after the original movie and again centers on serial killer Leatherface as he terrorizes a new group of people in the town of Harlow, Texas.
Debuting in theaters and on Peacock concurrently, Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson’s “Marry Me” is another highly anticipated release. The romantic comedy tells the story of a pop star (played by Lopez) who impulsively marries a stranger in the crowd at her concert (Wilson) after finding out her fiancé was cheating on her.
