Cinemas around SA are set to unleash some pretty epic movies to capture our attention this month, including some long-anticipated sequels and new films to satisfy a fan of every genre.
Said to be Christopher Nolan’s longest movie ever made, Interstellar is set to raise the bar in terms of an epic big-screen spectacle, with fantastic visuals, solid acting and a captivating sci-fi story.
Interstellar follows a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.
Dumb and Dumber Too
The movie that’s been two decades in the making is finally here, as Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels team up once again for another idiotic slide into chaos.
The story is set 20 years after the dimwits set out on their first adventure, but this time, they head out in search of one of their long lost children in the hope of gaining a new kidney.
One of the more intersting sci-fi movies this month is The Signal, starring Lawrence Fishburne and Beau Knapp.
The Signal follows Nic and two friends, who are drawn to an isolated area by a computer genius. When everything suddenly goes dark, Nic regains consciousness – only to find himself in a waking nightmare and has to piece together what happened.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1
With Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) captured by Snow and taken prisoner in the Capitol, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) reluctantly agrees to act as “the Mocking Jay” a poster child for the rebellion spearheaded by District 13. She has one stipulation however that District 13’s President Alma Coin (Julianne Moore) promises immunity to all of the past Hunger Games tributes, including Peeta, and to give Katniss the right to personally kill President Snow (Donald Sutherland) once he is captured.
Horrible Bosses 2
A sequel to one of the funniest comedy in recent years drops this month, as the original cast, plus a few new friends, return for Horrible Bosses 2.
Nick (Jason Bateman), Dale (Charlie Day) and Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business. However, a slick investor soon takes control of their company.
