Cape Town – From a sweet romantic comedy, and a reimaging of a classic story, to the true story of two African American entrepreneurs, and a second look at Bad Boys for Life - here are four movie trailers you might have missed.

THE BANKER

Based on a true story this drama centres on revolutionary businessmen Bernard Garrett (Anthony Mackie) and Joe Morris (Samuel L. Jackson), who devise an audacious and risky plan to take on the racially oppressive establishment of the 1960s by helping other African Americans pursue the American dream. Along with Garrett’s wife Eunice (Nia Long), they train a working-class white man, Matt Steiner (Nicholas Hoult), to pose as the rich and privileged face of their burgeoning real estate and banking empire – while Garrett and Morris pose as a janitor and a chauffeur.

BAD BOYS FOR LIFE

The new instalment centres on the Miami PD and its elite AMMO team's attempt to take down Armando Armas, head of a drug cartel. Armando is a cold-blooded killer with a vicious, taunting nature. He is committed to the work of the cartel and is dispatched by his mother to kill Mike (Smith).

THE PHOTOGRAPH

On Valentine’s Day, Issa Rae (Insecure) and LaKeith Stanfield (Atlanta) connect in a romance where a woman must learn from the secrets in her mother’s past if she is to move forward and allow herself to love and be loved.

When famed photographer Christina Eames unexpectedly dies, she leaves her estranged daughter Mae Morton (Rae) hurt, angry and full of questions. When a photograph tucked away in a safe-deposit box is found, Mae finds herself on a journey delving into her mother’s early life and ignites an unexpected romance with a rising-star journalist, Michael Block (Stanfield).
