Cape Town – Ghostbusters makes its big reveal at cinemas this weekend. 

In the new all female reboot a trio of scientists team up with a subway worker to combat ghosts that creep up in New York.

Matt Damon returns as CIA agent Jason Bourne, Viggo Mortensen takes his family off the grid in a thought provoking drama, comedian Pieter-Dirk Uys take us into his life and a mockumentary that takes a swipe at local politics – there's something for everyone to see.
