Newsletter and jokes: 27 July 2018
Well The Cruise is back as Ethan Hunt, in what some critics are calling
the best action film in recent years. They're expecting an opening
weekend in the 65 - 75 M$ Stateside, which would not only be the largest
for the franchise but also for any Tom Cruise film.
For something a lot less hectic we have Adrift, mainly a two-hander on
a boat adrift on the ocean.
The kiddies are spoilt with two animated offerings, neither of which has
had a US release yet. First up is the TV-to-cinema switch for Teen Titans,
and then episode three of the Russian-made Snow Queen series.
The art circuit has a French domestic post-divorce rom-com, while the local
industry rolls out another episode in the Broken Promises comedy series.
So a rather crowd-pleasing weekend lineup.
There's also the African Film Festival running at Musgrave and Gateway.
