Cape Town – The Christmas weekend at the cinema offers an escape from all the jingle and bells. 

A popular video game makes its big screen debut starring Michael Fassbender, a local teen romcom that's a bit like High School Musical and a musical animation that will make your heart sing – there's plenty to see. 

Here are 3 new films at the local box office:

Movie: Assassin’s Creed

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: If you are not into the video game or never even heard of it, rather give this one a skip at the cinemas.

Movie: Sing 

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: Sing lacks in originality but makes up for it in execution - you may know what’s going to happen in the end, but the journey there will hit you with plenty of surprises.

Movie: Jou Romeo

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: Jou Romeo is an Afrikaans High School Musical without the singing, but it has enough local flair and charismatic actors that make for great entertainment.
