4 Biggest Movie Releases in SA this Weekend

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

This week’s movie releases have a little bit of everything – fishy tales, revenge stories, bizarre rescue missions, and a buddy cop film for the ages. Here’s the movies hitting cinemas this Friday, 17 June 2016:

Finding Dory

Release date: 16 June 2016

The long-awaited Finding Nemo sequel is finally here, which sees friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish, Dory, going in search of her family after she recalls childhood memories of “the jewel of Monterey, California”. Together with Nemo and Marlin, the trio set off for the Monterey Marine Life Institute, where she meets some colourful sea creatures and learns the real meaning of family.

I Am Wrath

Release date: 17 June 2016

John Travolta returns to the big-screen as a man out for justice after a group of corrupt police officers are unable to catch his wife’s killer. This revenge-fueled action romp looks to be in the vain of the likes of the Taken franchise and Edge of Darkness, and could be one of the hidden gems of the year.


Release date: 17 June 2016

Easily the most bizarre movie this month, Keanu stars Key & Peele‘s Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key in an off-the-wall action comedy about two men and a cat. The film kicks off when Rell’s life is changed by a cute kitten arriving on his doorstep. Unfortunately, one weekend later, the kitten is abducted by persons unknown. Now Rell and his cousin, Clarence, are men on a mission to find the cat against the odds.

The Nice Guys

Release date: 17 June 2016

The Nice Guys stars Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling as lawmen who stumble upon a shocking conspiracy with far-reaching consequences in 1970s Los Angeles. The private eye and enforcer band together to crack a case involving a missing girl and investigate a fading porn star’s suicide, two mysteries, which become inextricably linked to the upper echelons.
