Fancy a film? The movies out in Dubai cinemas this week
Here are all the new flicks you’ll be able to go see from today…
Our top pick of the movies out in cinemas this week is Beauty and the Beast, a live action Disney remake starring Emma Watson.
Beauty and the Beast
Nostalgic 80s and 90s babies are sure to be lining up for this live action remake of the iconic Disney movie. Emma Watson stars in the role she was surely born to play, as the headstrong bookworm Belle, who is held captive in an enchanted castle by a prince who’s been cursed to appear as a beast (Dan Stevens). The star-studded cast also includes Ewan McGregor, Luke Evans, Emma Thompson and Josh Gad. We’re humming the songs already.
Before I Fall
In this adaptation of the popular young adult novel by Lauren Olivier, Before I Fall tells the story of a beautiful high school girl who dies unexpectedly at a party, only to wake up the next morning. In a scenario that reminds us of Groundhog Day meets Gossip Girl, she’s forced to relive the same day over and over, a day that involves a Carrie-esque party where she and her gang bullied the less popular girls, until she finally gets it right.
In this action-packed thriller, Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx plays a Las Vegas homicide detective, a seemingly corrupt cop who’s forced to channel his inner Liam Neeson after his teenage son gets taken by criminals in a failed drugs heist. A race against time follows as he must try and track down his son, while under the watchful eye of an internal affairs investor (Michelle Monaghan). Decent, but (be warned) pretty violent popcorn fare.
