Independence Day Resurgence

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

This week’s movie releases have a little bit of everything – a colossal sci-fi battle, a buddy comedy starring the Rock, and some high-tension drama. What more do you want? Here’s the movies hitting cinemas this Friday, 24 June 2016:

Independence Day: Resurgence

Release date: 24 June 2016

When first hearing that a sequel to Independence Day was in the works, it was hard not to be sceptical, but we’ve got to admit – we’re super excited for it! Jeff Goldblum’s back, and so too are those mischievous aliens in Independence Day: Resurgence. Twenty years after Earth was left reeling from one invasion, the saucers are here to terrorise a new generation. You’ve got extras running in terror from huge alien death rays, tentacle creatures locked up in top secret labs, and some state-of-the-art special effects. Consider us sold.

Central Intelligence

Release date: 24 June 2016

Two of the biggest stars in the world today, Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson, star in Central Intelligence, which sees a good-natured accountant (Hart) reconnect with a former schoolmate (Johnson) on Facebook, who turns out to be a lethal CIA agent. From a nostalgic back-slapping reunion recounting awkward school day memories, the unlikely buddy team are catapulted into a top secret case, which involves shootouts, double-crosses and international espionage.

I Saw the Light

Release date: 24 June 2016

Avengers stars Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen feature in this biographic pic which tells the story of country-western singer Hank Williams, who in his brief life created one of the greatest bodies of work in American music. The film chronicles his rise to fame and its tragic effect on his health and personal life.

The Keeping Room

Release date: 24 June 2016

In this high-tension drama, a southern woman retreats to an isolated farmhouse after narrowly escaping an attempted assault from two rogue Union Army soldiers in the waning days of the Civil War. Left to fend for themselves, a trio of women including her sister and a slave, are forced to take up arms and barricade their home from the revenge-fueled attackers.
