The weekend is rolling around quickly, and for those looking to hit the cinema, there are some quality movies releasing this week, including a retro revival, a post-apocalyptic blockbuster, and a feel-good comedy to mix it up.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Producer Michael Bay (Transformers) presents this big screen reboot of an 80’s TV and movie franchise. When New York City is threatened by the evil Shredder and his Foot Clan, four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Megan Fox stars as ace reporter April ONeil.
Chris Evans stars as the protagonist in this bone-chilling action flick that’s packed full of social commentary and brutal moments. Snowpiercer is being tapped as the sleeper hit of the year and has already received impressive reviews globally.
Set in a future where a failed climate-change experiment kills all life on the planet except for a lucky few who boarded the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe, where a class system emerges.
This Is Where I Leave You
When Judd Foxman’s (Jason Bateman) father dies, the family comes together for the first time in years. However, Judd’s wife, who’s having an affair, is noticeably absent.
Judd, grieving for his father and his marriage, joins his dysfunctional non-practicing Jewish family as they fulfil his father’s final wish and sit Shivah together, spending seven days and nights under the same roof during which time secrets are revealed, long-time grudges come to the forefront and old passions are rekindled.
