What’s new at the movies

The highly-acclaimed, high-octane new action thriller Baby Driver opens at Nu Metro Menlyn Park in Pretoria this week, along with a laugh-out-loud comedy tailor-made for Women’s month.

In Baby Driver, Baby, a talented young getaway driver, relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. When he meets the girl of his dreams, he sees a chance to ditch his criminal life and make a clean getaway. But working for a crime boss, he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom. Critics have described this movie as an instant classic.

The film features a kick-ass soundtrack, and stars heavyweights Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Hamm and Jamie Foxx, and is directed by Edgar Wright.

Baby Driver is showing in the Nu Metro Menlyn’s Xtreme cinema – featuring powerful Auro 3D sound, with superb digital projection on one of Pretoria’s largest cinema screens, as well as in new 4DX feature at Menlyn to watch from moving seats and with wind, water, scents and other environmental effects synchronised to the on-screen action.

Comedy Girls Trip (16DLV), also exclusive at Nu Metro Menlyn Park, stars Jada Pinkett-Smith, Queen Latifah, Regina Hall and Tiffany Haddish.

When four lifelong friends travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered, and there’s enough dancing, drinking, brawling and romancing to make the Big Easy blush. This hilarious new comedy is the perfect girls’ night out with some of cinema’s biggest female stars, to celebrate Women’s Month in style this August.
