Movies out in Dubai this week: Black Mass, The Walk, Straight Outta Compton, The Visit
Our top pick this week is Black Mass – you’ll barely recognise Johnny Depp as king of Boston’s criminal underworld Whitey Bulger.
Johnny Depp is unrecognisable as the chilling Whitey Bulger, one of the most notorious gangsters in American history. Kevin Bacon and Benedict Cumberbatch also star.
Visually stunning, this film tells the story of Philippe Petite (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and his high wire walk between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Centre in 1974.
STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON
The rise and fall of Eazy-E, Ice Cube and Dr Dre – aka NWA – is charted in this absorbing drama. The slice of hip hop history has received rave reviews.
A typically creepy offering from M. Night Shyamalan, this shaky-cam flick follows two kids staying with their grandparents, who are acting a little… odd.
