BIG meets bigger in the new action blockbuster starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson – one of the three new movies opening at Nu Metro The Glen this week.
Showing in the Xtreme theatre at Nu Metro The Glen, featuring 360-degree sound and one of Johannesburg’s largest cinema screens.
Primatologist Davis Okoye (Dwayne Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakeable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But, a rogue genetic experiment gone awry mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals. As these newly created alpha predators tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield—not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
Here Comes the Grump (7-9PG)
Spending summer vacations at Grandma Mary’s amazing Groovyland Theme Park was an awesome experience for an unassuming boy like Terry. With the help of Grandma’s overzealous imagination, he could dream about visiting enchanted lands filled with psychedelic walking flowers, talking balloons, clumsy dragons and, maybe, even a princess or two. But now, his grandmother is gone and the theme park is threatened with closure. Desperately unhappy, Terry finds himself clinging on to the old times and his memories of her hippy-dippy stories.
A tiny bit of magic left behind on one of the theme park rides sweeps him away and before he knows it, he finds himself stranded in a very real, very cool, very magical land in this new animated adventure. But one that certainly isn’t as carefree or as happy as Grandma had led him to believe – an evil wizard, Grump, has cast a spell of gloom over the land and now smiling and laughter are a thing of the past. Can Terry save the day and get back home?
If it’s leftfield sci-fi comedy/action that you crave, then this one’s for you. Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is an out-of-work party girl who finds herself in relationship trouble with her sensible boyfriend, Tim, and she’s forced to move back to her tiny hometown to get her life back on track. She reconnects with childhood friend Oscar, a good-natured bar owner with a coterie of drinking buddies, and resumes her drinking lifestyle.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, a larger-than-life creature begins attacking Seoul, South Korea, on a nightly basis, captivating spectators around the world. One night, Gloria is horrified to discover that her every move at a local playground is being mimicked on a catastrophic scale by the rampaging beast. When Gloria’s friends get wind of the bizarre phenomenon, a second more destructive creature emerges, prompting an epic showdown between the two monsters.
