5 new movies you can check out this weekend if you're planning on going to the cinema


Cape Town – South Africa’s first western film canters into cinemas this weekend. 

In Five Fingers for Marseilles a member of the Five Fingers returns to colonial Marseilles after fleeing police aggression two decades before, and finds the town under a new threat.

Also to see: A horror that will scare the crap out of you, two romances for young and old and another retelling of the 1976 terrorist attack where an Air France flight was hijacked and the passengers and crew were held hostage at Entebbe.
