There’s something nostalgic about feeling a chill breeze while you are on your way to buy some popcorn before you enter the cinema. Well, the wait is over as August is behind us and the heatwave has finally finished. The chill breeze also reminds us that it is time for the horror movies to start coming out. So we welcome September with a horror that will scare you out of your wits and two releases that you won’t believe are finally out, and a rerelease of a classic sci-fi.
Based on a true story, this thriller is the first Egyptian movie to be filmed underwater. In collaboration with stars like Basma, Nikola Moawad, and Amr Wahba, Mako delves into events that happened to a crew of producers who wanted to film a documentary on a sunken ship called “Salem Express”. After diving into the water, the team realises that the area is packed with hungry sharks. The work with CGI and special effects truly show a vast development in the world of Egyptian cinema.
Shang Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings
The story of this long-awaited marvel superhero is here to keep you on the edge of your seats throughout this two-hour action-filled adventure. Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) is born to parents of a mysterious past, and when it is time for him to become an adult, he is forced to free himself from the dangerous organisation called the Ten Rings. The fight scenes in this movie will definitely leave you clinging to your popcorn bucket!
We believe you can’t officially start the spooky autumn season until there’s a new horror movie out in cinemas, and it is finally here! Madison Michel (Annabelle Wallis) suddenly starts getting nightmarish visions of people getting murdered. She soon realises that these dreams are shocking realities where people she has never met are being murdered by an evil entity. Knowing that she is the only one capable of stopping these horrendous events, Michel sets her mind on preventing more murders.
2001: A Space Odyssey
This rerelease of the classic Sci-Fi movie will be an experience you don’t want to miss. First released in 1968, this movie predicted video conferencing, the moon landing, and glass cockpits through some very accurate depictions in the film. While taking you back to prehistoric times and then to the future (2001), the movie delves into concepts of evolution and human development by showcasing futuristic astronauts on a mission to Jupiter. The astronauts, including Dr Dave Bowman (Keir Dullea), stumble across an unfamiliar extraterrestrial creation that causes their computer system, HAL, to malfunction.
