Here are this week’s new movie releases at Nu Metro in Pretoria.
Sonic the Hedgehog (PG V)
From the producer of The Fast and the Furious comes a new live-action adventure comedy, based on the global blockbuster videogame-franchise from Sega, that is sure to get your heart racing in your chest. Follow the mis(adventures) of Sonic, the world’s speediest hedgehog, as he tries to navigate the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound – human – best friend Tom (James Marsden). Sonic and Tom must join their unlikely forces to try and stop the villainous Dr Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination.
Little Women (7-9PG DPV)
Showing at Nu Metro Menlyn Park and Parkview
A recreation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic tale is brought to life by writer-director Greta Gerwig (Ladybird). Watch the beloved timeless story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on their own terms – unfold before your eyes. With an award-winning cast featuring Meryl Streep, Emma Watson, Laura Dern and Saoirse Ronan, Little Women reflects on the strength and vigour of females, both past and future.
Just Mercy (13 LPV)
Following the unbelievable true story, Harvard lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Michael B Jordan) heads to Alabama to defend those who are wrongly condemned or who cannot afford proper representation. His first case will change everything, when he meets Walter MacMillan (Jamie Foxx) who is sentenced to death for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl – despite the mountain of evidence that proves him innocent. Boundaries are tested as it becomes clear that the odds – and the system – are stacked against them.
