Three new flicks at local cinemas this weekend.

Cape Town – From the supernatural, to the Wild West to a 90-year-old drug mule – here’s what’s new in cinemas this weekend. 

Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis and James McAvoy reprise their roles in M. Night Shyamalan’s superhero sequel, Jake Gyllenhaal joins Joaquin Phoenix and John C Reilly in a poignant western and Clint Eastwood stars in the true life story about a senior drug mule. 

Here are the 3 new films releasing in SA:

Movie: Glass

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: A great finale to the surprise trilogy, Glass takes on a grounded look at comic book superheroes and the power of belief that push humans to extraordinary heights.

Movie: The Sisters Brothers

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: Sisters Brothers takes the age-old cliché of cowboys and crooks and skilfully transforms it into a poignant tale of brotherhood and comradery.

Movie: The Mule

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: Just about worth seeing for Eastwood’s performance alone, The Mule is a disappointingly safe and overly familiar telling of a much more interesting true story.
