    February is a golden time to release films in China, particularly since Chinese Lunar New Year's Day this year also happens to be Valentine's Day.

    Animation, kung fu - and 3-D kung fu - mystery and romance are on offer.

    Fans of "Pleasant Goat and Big Big Wolf" are reveling in the sequel that has so far taken in around 100 million yuan (US$14.6 million) at the box office.

    The small-budget film based on a hit TV series follows the adventures of a gray wolf family and their goat friends who unite to defeat the enemy tiger.

    It is expected to be made into a series in which each of the 12 Chinese zodiac signs will be new characters to the hilarious story. Super Girl Zhou Bichang sings the theme song.

    Kung fu films are a holiday highlight.

    Hong Kong director Daniel Lee's latest romantic martial-arts film "14 Blades", starring Donnie Yen and Zhao Wei, centers on a Ming Dynasty secret agent Qinglong who fights to expose a conspiracy.

    "True Legend" is another highly anticipated martial-arts film. It's the world's first 3-D kung-fu movie by the "master of kung-fu choreography" Yuen Woo-Ping. The film tells the saga of a legendary martial-arts master named Su Can, or Beggar Su.

    The holiday fare includes a few other romantic comedies and a detective film.

    "Hot Summer Days", which takes place in hot summer days, features six intertwined love stories starring A-listers such as Nicholas Tse, Daniel Wu and Jacky Cheung. Touching stories show ordinary people seeking love.

    "Sherlock Holmes" follows a new adventure of the legendary detective and his partner Watson in a battle of wits and brawn with a nemesis whose plot is a threat to all of England.
