COMPETITION: Win tickets to two new movies

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (PG)

Two new movies are opening at Nu Metro cinemas in Pretoria this week.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (10-12PG V) fantasy action-adventure

Showing at Nu Metro Menlyn Park and Nu Metro VIP at the Parkview Centre.

Valerian and the city of a thousand planets is the visually spectacular new adventure film from Luc Besson, the legendary director of The Professional, The Fifth Element and Lucy.

The movie is based on the ground-breaking comic book series that inspired a generation of artists, writers and filmmakers.

In the 28th century, Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are a team of special operatives charged with maintaining order throughout the human territories.

Under assignment from the Minister of Defense, the two embark on a mission to the astonishing city of Alpha – an ever-expanding metropolis where species from all over the universe have converged over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence and cultures with each other.

There is a mystery at the centre of Alpha, a dark force that threatens the peaceful existence of the City of a Thousand Planets.

Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.

Powered by the imagination of Besson, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets takes audiences on an unforgettable intergalactic adventure.

Apart from 3D at all cineplexes, the film will also be screened in Menlyn’s 4DX cinema – featuring moving seats, wind, water and other multi-sensory effects.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

Showing at Nu Metro Menlyn Park only.

50 percent hero. 100 percent cotton…

Two overly imaginative pranksters, George and Harold, hypnotise their school principal into thinking he’s a ridiculously enthusiastic, incredibly dimwitted superhero named Captain Underpants.

This hilarious animated adventure featuring the voice of popular comedian Kevin Hart, is based on Captain Underpants (the children’s book) by Dav Pilkey.
