Cape Town – 2018 is upon us and as we go into the New Year, three new films at local cinemas promise to help us get there.

Adventure through a jungle with The Rock, sing along with Hugh Jackman or feel unwelcome at a dinner table with Salma Hayek – take your pick.

Here are the 3 new films releasing in SA today:

Movie: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is no classic but it is so much better than it has any right to be that it’s easy to excuse its undeniable flimsiness or ultimately fairly small weaknesses.

Movie: The Greatest Showman

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: Hugh Jackman's charisma can't prevent Greatest Showman from drowning in feel-good emotion and generic pop ballads.

Movie: Beatriz at Dinner

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: Beatriz at Dinner serves a not very appetizing mix of over-egged socio-political commentary and under-cooked characterisation in a film that is significantly less than the sum of its good intentions.
