From a Zulu wedding to a spooky family - There are some exciting new things to watch in SA cinemas this weekend
Cape Town – The kookiest family on the block is back on the big screen this weekend.
In the latest version of Charles Addams' classic cartoon the family's lives begin to unravel when they move to New Jersey and face-off against a sly reality TV host. It has an A-list voice cast including Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz and Bette Midler.
Also showing: Will Smith fights himself in an Ang Lee directed action film, cultures clash in a local romantic comedy, and greed and class discrimination threaten a relationship between a rich and poor family in an award-winning thriller.
HERE ARE THE 4 NEW FILMS RELEASING IN SA:
Movie: The Addams Family
Our rating: 3/5
Short review: This animated reboot may not find the Addams Family at their very best but after far too many years away, it’s nice to see that they haven’t changed all that much.
Movie: Gemini Man
Our rating: 2/5
Short review: The film is impressive in terms of visual effects and cinematography but Will Smith's natural talent gets lost within the movie magic.
Movie: Zulu Wedding
Our rating: 3/5
Short review: This modern-day African fairy tale is a beautifully shot film with characters and themes that everyone can relate to.
Our rating: 5/5
Short review: Parasite captures the infinite melancholy, sickening violence and soul-crushing brutality of modern life.
The Goldfinch is also showing in South African cinemas but there was no screening for the media.
