5 new films in local cinemas this weekend


Cape Town – It's another action packed weekend at local cinemas. 

Michael Fassbender is on the hunt for a serial killer snowman while Nicolaj Coster-Waldau turns into a hardcore convict.

Noomi Rapace holds her own in a spy thriller, Shirley MacLaine has an end of life crisis and Zakes Mda's Whale Caller comes to life on the big screen – there's something for everyone to see. 

Here are the 5 new films releasing in SA:


Movie: The Snowman

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: The Snowman is as pale as Oslo’s snowy white surroundings and about as exciting as a lukewarm glass of milk.

Movie: Unlocked

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: The plot of Unlocked is hard to explain but star Noomi Rapace proves as capable as the guys of being an excellent killer spy.

Our rating: Caught between being a character-drama and a pulpy thriller, Shot Caller never really succeeds at either, despite a very impressive lead turn by Nicolaj Coster-Waldau.

Short review: 2/5

Movie: The Whale Caller

Our rating: 2/5
