Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and what better way to spend it than with a cliché movie date?

Luckily, there are three anticipated movies set to release Friday, one being Marvel’s highly anticipated “Deadpool.”

Ryan Reynolds has been taking over TV this past week as the eponymous character, interrupting commercial breaks to let viewers know that they need to see his movie for Valentine’s Day.

“Deadpool” is an action-packed comedy produced by Fox Studios that depicts the life of Wade Wilson. Diagnosed with terminal cancer, he undergoes an experiment that leaves him with enhanced healing powers and a less-than-stable mental makeup, which leads to his alter ego.

Reynolds is not playing the typical superhero. He is portraying an antihero whose careless, reckless attitude makes him a favorite. This is easily one of the most anticipated movies this year for comic book buffs.

Another fan favorite set to open is “Zoolander 2.” Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson are at it again 15 years after the original, portraying the suave Derek Zoolander and Hansel, respectively.  Their mission this time around is to stop Mugatu (Will Ferrell) from trying to kill the world’s most beautiful people.

Joining this comical cast are Kristen Wiig, Penelope Cruz, Benedict Cumberbatch and Justin Bieber.

What better way to sit back and relax this Valentine’s Day than to watch an overdue sequel?

If you happen to be alone this this Valentine’s Day, don’t worry; there’s an option for you, too. You can go and enjoy the comedy “How to Be Single,” starring Rebel Wilson of “Pitch Perfect” fame, and Dakota Johnson, from “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

After having a long-term relationship in college, Alice (Johnson), needs a break and learns how to handle the single life again. In an unfamiliar city, Robin (Wilson) teaches Alice how to navigate through the city while having plenty of fun along the way.

Alice learns how to party, get free drinks and date again under the wings of Robin. Joining this dynamic duo is Leslie Mann, who helps teach Alice the perks of being single.
