STER-KINEKOR RELEASES NEED FOR SPEED IN THE IMAX® THEATRE AT GATEWAY

Published

on

Seeing this adrenalin-fuelled film on the IMAX® screen will ensure you are part of the action

 Since opening in November last year, the IMAX® theatre at Ster-Kinekor’s most popular cinema complex – Gateway in Durban – has already played host to a number of popular titles. On Friday, 21 March, Need for Speed will race into the impressive IMAX® theatre, but for one week only. For the ride of your life, make sure you book your tickets now to see this fast-paced, action-packed crime thriller in the most immersive cinematic experience.

The IMAX® release of Need for Speed has been digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® using proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX’s customised theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie – and part of the non-stop action.

Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever produced, with more than 140 million copies sold, Need for Speed captures the thrills of the game in a real-world setting – with the added pleasure of watching all the action whizz by on the big screen.

An exciting return to the great car-culture films of the 1960s and ’70s, when authenticity brought a new level of intensity to the action, Need for Speed is a high-octane film that taps into what makes the American myth of the open road so enticing.

The story chronicles muscle car mechanic and street-racer, Tobey (Aaron Paul), fresh from prison, and having been framed by a wealthy business partner, Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper). As Tobey sets off on a near-impossible cross-country race against time, his ex-partner, learning of the plan, places a massive bounty on his head at the start of the race. What begins as a mission for revenge proves instead to be one of redemption.

Need for Speed is directed by Scott Waugh, written by George Gatins and John Gatins, and produced by DreamWorks Pictures. The film stars Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Ramon Rodriguez, Scott ‘Kid Cudi’ Mescui and Rami Malek.

Seeing Need for Speed in the IMAX® screen promises audiences an immersive cinema experience like no other.

Review: Movies @ Suncoast – Deadpool 2

Published

on

If you are a lover of Durban and you hear of the word ‘Suncoast’, you would automatically be thinking: Casino and Entertainment World – well, if it was only ‘Casino’… then good job!

BUT it’s not all about the casino or the restaurants… it’s also about the movies, which brings us to the point of this post where we review Deadpool 2 at Suncoast’s Cinecentre.

FUN FACT: Cinecentre is part of the Avalon Group which is South Africa’s largest and oldest independent Cinema Exhibition and Entertainment Company – they have been a pioneer of importing Bollywood movies to South Africa for over 70 years.

DEADPOOL 2: REVIEW

DP 2’s elaborate anti-marketing campaign has been simply brilliant by bashing popular pop-culture while also making fun of itself.  Ryan Reynolds, who plays both DP and Juggernaut, has once again pulled out all the stops to
deliver an entertaining and hysterically funny anti-hero flick that will appeal to all DP 1 fans.

Storyline: This blockbuster brings together X-Force, Bill Skarsgard, Terry Crews and Brad Pitt (who’s out of sight), a team of misfit hero’s on a mission to save a troubled mutant boy (Russell “Rusty” Collins) from a time traveling cyborg (Cable), played by Josh Brolin, who lugs around a beast of a gun and other advanced weaponry. But it doesn’t end as you may think.

The movies ability to break down the fourth wall without skipping a beat is what makes this film special. This brilliant idea that DP knows he is a fictional character living in a comic book universe could even be expanded upon in future installments, and hopefully it will be. All DP’s literal back breaking and head splitting weirdness mixed with a kind of super consciousness of his own reality should keep all die hard comic book movie fans coming back time and again.

Expect some rib-tickling one-liners, plenty of trash talking and loads of action. DP 2 scores and solid 8 out of 10, so book your tickets now at CINECENTRE!

Suncost Casino and Entertainment World

Centrally located at the northern end of Durban‘s Golden Mile, Suncoast is always a hub of activity. Not only a great spot to visit if you are a local but for tourists to our beautiful city as well. Currently under construction, we found that parking was a mission and running across the lot in the rain not very pleasant, but this is our only negative about our Suncoast experience. On a good note, a little birdie says that part of the new building will be undercover parking – which we think is fantastic!

REVIEW: Tomb Raider at Suncoast’s Cine Centre

Published

on

There’s just something so electric about going to the movies at Suncoast Casino. With all the lights and vibrant shops & restaurants, you’re immediately transported to a magical place that can only be felt in reality!

We were recently invited to experience the new Tomb Raider movie at Suncoast Casino, and boy were we in for a treat!

Arriving at Suncoast, we made our way to the food court to grab a bite before the movie. Even though there were renovations taking place, it didn’t dampen the atmosphere as Suncoast was still jam-packed full of families and couples alike.

After our quick dinner for two, we headed towards the CincCentre to finally watch the movie I had been dying to watch, Tomb Raider! As a little girl, I grew up playing the Tomb Raider games, and of course, was beyond excited to watch the all new take on the movie franchise.

We queued for our popcorn & drinks which was a breeze.
I loved how Suncoast’s CineCentre give you extra packets of popcorn spice in case you needed it later on in the movie!

After making our way to our seats, we were ready and excited for the movie to begin. Our movie was in 3D and we came prepared, with pre-purchased 3D glasses from a previous movie. So if you’re buying a pair, be sure to keep it somewhere safe for the next time!

My take on the Tomb Raider movie?

I thought it was an incredible, fresh new take on the franchise and thoroughly enjoyed it!
