You might be under the impression that Hollywood only releases romances and dramas on Valentine's Day, hoping to lure in couples celebrating their annual moment of gross PDA. You would be wrong. In recent years, movies like "The Wolfman," "Safe House" and "Live Free Or Die Hard" hit theaters on or around V-Day, and 2014 will be no different. Granted, remakes "Endless Love" and "About Last Night" will be aiming for the heartsick, but YA adaptations "The Maze Runner" and "Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters" will also be in the mix and joining them is a movie co-written and produced by none other than Luc Besson.

Three Days To Kill Kevin Costner

You might be under the impression that Hollywood only releases romances and dramas on Valentine's Day, hoping to lure in couples celebrating their annual moment of gross PDA. You would be wrong. In recent years, movies like "The Wolfman," "Safe House" and "Live Free Or Die Hard" hit theaters on or around V-Day, and 2014 will be no different. Granted, remakes "Endless Love" and "About Last Night" will be aiming for the heartsick, but YA adaptations "The Maze Runner" and "Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters" will also be in the mix and joining them is a movie co-written and produced by none other than Luc Besson.

The McG directed, Kevin Costner starring "Three Days To Kill" has put a bullet on February 14, 2014 and we have a first look at the movie, thanks to a Cannes EuropaCorp catalog they brought to the market. Co-starring Hailee Steinfeld, Amber Heard and Connie Nielsen, it's another riff on the "Taken" formula with the aging action hero, juggling family and bad guys, though this time it has a bit of a "Crank" flavor to it as well. Here's the official synopsis:

In this distinctive action-thriller, Kevin Costner plays an elite government hit man who after receiving news that he has a terminal disease, decides to give up his high stakes life to finally build a relationship with his estranged wife and daughter, whom he's previously kept at arm's length to keep out of danger. But when his agency offers him an experimental, potentially life-saving drug in exchange for one last mission, it's an offer he can't refuse - even if it means juggling his two toughest assignments yet: going after the world's most ruthless terrorist and caring for his daughter for the first time in ten years while his wife is out of town.

So, we'll see how this goes...do you believe in Besson? Let us know below.
