Cape Town – Escape with fantasy and adventure at the box office this weekend.

Also in cinema an unexpected superhero Captain Underpants who goes on his first epic adventure. 

Here are the 2 new films at the local box office:

Movie: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: Despite two leads with limited chemistry, wobbly dialogue and out-of-place sound design, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets still manages to blow your mind away by the sheer force of power found in its jaw-dropping visuals, non-human characters and wholly unique concepts.
