Fancy a film? The movies out in Dubai cinemas this week
Our top pick of the movies out in cinemas this week is Desierto, a terrifying and tense thriller from the director of Gravity.
Here are all the new flicks you’ll be able to go see from today…
No one knows how to build up claustrophobic terror in a film quite like Jonás Cuarón. This time round, the man who made space utterly scary in Gravity brings us a thriller based around the topic of immigration. Gael Garcia Bernal stars as one of a group of Mexican immigrants braving the desert badlands to reach the border of the US. Unfortunately, a murderous Jeffrey Dean Morgan is out to hunt them down one by one (he’s the sort of man you’d imagine getting excited at a Donald Trump rally).
Based on the bestseller by Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons), Inferno reunites us with symbology expert Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks). This time Langdon must save the world from a mad bioengineer (Ben Foster), who has decided to tackle over-population by unleashing a plague that will kill billions. How inconsiderate. Hanks is as likeable as ever, but Ron Howard can’t quite seem to translate the pacing and intrigue of the books to film.
Remember The Cable Guy? This horror film is a bit like that, but with an I.T guy instead. Mike Regan (Pierce Brosnan) is a man who’s made his millions as a smartphone app tycoon. When he hires I.T guy Ed to help him deal with some tech troubles, it all goes horribly wrong when Ed mistakes their small talk for the start of a new friendship. When Mike rejects Ed, he puts his hacker skills to vengeful use.
