Chinese New Year is coming up, and that means some of the year’s biggest blockbusters will be coming. Watch out for a post on all the films premiering, but for those of you in U.S./Canada, here’s a list of films you might catch near you. I’m pretty sure all of these will also show in Australia, and a few in the U.K. Go on the distributer’s sites to find more about whether they’re playing at a theater near you.
