Van der Merwe (7-9PG)

Three new movies will be opening at Nu Metro’s cinemas at Menlyn Park and the VIP Cineplex at Parkview Centre this week.

Moviegoers can look forward to a new film from the director of The Dark Night trilogy, Inception and Interstellar, along with a laugh-out-loud local comedy and a high-ranking historical drama.

Dunkirk (16V)

Dunkirk has been described as “the movie event of the year”, courtesy of acclaimed director Christopher Nolan.

It follows the story of the miraculous evacuation of the allied soldiers from Belgium, Britain and France.

The soldiers were cut off and surrounded by the German army at the harbour of Dunkirk, France, between 27 May and 4 June 1940, during the Battle of France in World War II.

Billed as the “the event that shaped the world”, this must-see critically-acclaimed movie features a stellar cast including Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance and Tom Hardy.

Van der Merwe (7-9PG)

The Van, the myth, the legend…

Van der Merwe’s daughter, Marike, returns home from a gap year in England with a new fiancé, a British medical student.

Not only does Van have to come to terms with the fact that his daughter is marrying an Englishman, but he is also pressured by his bossy, conservative father to put an end to the relationship.

This puts Van in a precarious situation, as he must choose between the wrath of his father and losing his daughter.

The fireworks really begin when the fiancé’s family arrives on the farm, setting off clashing cultures and a number of side-splitting incidents, as some classic Van Der Merwe jokes play out.

Van Der Merwe stars popular local comedian, actor and TV presenter Rob van Vuuren in the title role, along with other well-known local acting talent.

Viceroy’s House (10-12PG P)

The critics are raving over director Gurinder Chadha’s historical drama detailing the true story of the final months of British rule in India.

Hugh Bonneville stars as the final Viceroy of India, Lord Mountbatten, who is tasked with overseeing the transition of British India to independence, but meets with conflict as different sides clash in the face of monumental change.

Viceroy’s House is based on Freedom at Midnight and The Shadow of the Great Game – The Untold Story of Partition, books by Larry Collins, Dominique Lapierre and Narenda Singh Sarila.
