Cape Town – The ninth instalment of the X-Men franchise hits the big screen this weekend.

Our favourite mutants once again find themselves standing between humanity and a potentially world-destroying threat.

If that's not really your thing there's also a true-life drama about a math genius, a horror with a creepy kid and one of the best musicals to hit the circuit in a while. 

Here are the 4 new movies releasing in South Africa today:


Movie: X-Men: Apocalypse

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: The latest installment in the X-Men franchise is a disappointment but not enough of one to truly displease fans or to leave them not looking forward to whatever comes next.

Movie: The Man Who Knew Infinity

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: Terrific performances, good intentions and some enjoyably witty dialogue just about holds together The Man Who Knew Infinity but, considering its subject matter,  it really should have been a whole lot better.

Movie: Sing Street

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: Director John Carney produces another bestselling hit with this coming of age musical filled with hope and a great soundtrack.

Movie: Before I Wake

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: Minor flaws aside, Before I Wake is easily the best horror film to come our way in a very, very long time.
