Here’s The Very Best Of What To Go See In The Cinema This Weekend


The sun is gone gone gone (*tears) so we’re gonna have to say bye to breezy outdoor glasses of wine in the sunshine with our very own gossip crew and hello again to the sticky floor of the cinema.

 Once you get over the grimness of the rain entering our lives once more, there’s actually some deadly movies on in the cinemas right now.

 From artsy thrillers to more run-of-the-mill blockbusters, here’s what to feast your eyes upon this weekend:

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge

Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new “Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge.”

 The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea—notably Jack.

 Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon.

Alien: Covenant

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his ground breaking ALIEN franchise.

 The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world.

When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.

Sachin: A Billion Dreams

This is an Indian biographical film based on the life of Indian cricket icon and living legend Sachin Tendulkar. A tale of a restless 10-year-old boy and his journey from watching India’s first World Cup winning skipper Kapil Dev lift the trophy, to the fulfilment of his dream of holding it in his hands for India.

 He is the most celebrated sportsperson in India, a virtuous hero who created an era, which Indians are proud of.

 The film captures Tendulkar’s dedication to cricket and his personal life in dramatic detail, as well as reveals aspects of his life which have never been heard or seen before.


After her boyfriend dumps her on the eve of their exotic vacation, impetuous dreamer Emily Middleton (Amy Schumer) persuades her ultra-cautious mother, Linda (Goldie Hawn) to travel with her to paradise.

Polar opposites, Emily and Linda realize that working through their differences as mother and daughter – in unpredictable, hilarious fashion – is the only way to escape the wildly outrageous jungle adventure they have fallen into.

Miss Sloane

In the high-stakes world of political power-brokers, Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain) is the most sought-after and formidable lobbyist in D.C. Known equally for her cunning and her track record of success, she has always done whatever is required to win.

But when she takes on the most powerful opponent of her career, she finds that winning may come at too high a price.

I Am Not Madame Bovary

 Li Xuelian, a woman from the countryside is falsely accused by her husband of having an affair.

To defend herself, Li moves from her small town to the big city until she reached the capital. She takes on the Chinese legal system after being swindled by her ex-husband.

The Handmaiden

Opulent, erotic and replete with exquisite period detail and sly narrative trickery, The Handmaiden is about a pickpocket turned servant and the heiress she conspires to swindle, in Japanese-occupied Korea in the 1930s.

Adapted from a book, the story unfolds of a young Japanese Lady living on a secluded estate, and a Korean woman who is hired to serve as her new handmaiden, but who is secretly involved in a conman’s plot to defraud her of her large inheritance.

Which one are you going to go see first?
