3 Biggest Movies Releasing in SA this Weekend

We take a look at the big movie releases hitting cinemas across SA.

This weekend gives movie-goers a number of new films that will deliver chills, laughs, and inspiration, depending on what you’re in the mood for, of course. Here’s our picks for movies releasing Friday, 14 October:

Don’t Breathe

Release date: Friday, 14 October 2016

Don’t Breathe has already released in the US to a great reception. A claustrophic and high-tension thriller, Don’t Breathe stars Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette, Daniel Zovatto and Stephen Lang (Avatar) and focuses on three friends who get trapped inside a blind man’s house while breaking into it. Their blind victim reveals himself to be far more dangerous than they initially thought, turning the tables and creating a cat-and-mouse game of life and death.


Release date: Friday, 14 October 2016

Kristen Wiig, Owen Wilson, Zach Galifianakis, and Jason Sudeikis lead an all-star comedy ensemble in Masterminds. Falling somewhere between The Hangover and a heist movie, the film follows David Ghantt an ordinary security guard guy who gets the opportunity to escape his monotonous life. He’s lured into planning a bank heist to last a lifetime… that is, if he can survive his team of halfwits and double-crossers.

Queen of Katwe

Release date: 14 October 2016

Disney brings an inspiring live-action African story this weekend with Queen of Katwe. The film follows Phiona, a 10-year-old girl from the impoverished slum of Katwe in Kampala, Uganda, who meets Robert Katende, a soccer player turned missionary, who empowers children with valuable skills by teaching them chess. It’s not long before Katende starts mentoring the future chess champion, after recognising her natural aptitude, fighting spirit and extraordinary potential. David Oyelowo, Lupita Nyong’o and Madina Nalwanga all star.
