EPK Weekend movie picks

This weekend is beginning a day early at the cinemas owing to Valentine Day! We have some really exciting movies coming to the cinemas, and hopefully it will end the dry spell at the box office!

1.Cold Pursuit

The Taken hero is back with a remake of a Norwegian film “In order of disappearance”. The film follows a snow plow driver (Liam Neeson) ,as he avenges the drug syndicate that he thinks killed his son. If you are looking for some action packed film is a good choice. The movie is expected to get better reception in major cities where audiences are familiar with Liam Neeson and his previous films.

2.Gully Boy

The Simmba boy is back in Zoya Akhtar’s directorial Gully Boy opposite Alia Bhatt. The film tells a story of an underdog who is striving to make it out of his circumstances and make a name for himself. Ranveer Singh has turned into a rapper for the role, and it is definitely really different from his Simmba avatar. The film is expected to get a big opening considering how well his previous movies have done. Early reviews coming in have been great, if you are looking for something different and fresh this could be it!

3.Happy Death Day 2 U

This one is a comedy,horror, thriller movie is where the protagonist Tree Gelbman (Rothe) discovers that dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead. The trailer shows twisted set of events and it is unclear if the movie will have a solid plot or not. But if you are thriller buff this 1 hour 40 minutes movie could be worth checking out. The film will probably not get good reception, and will be over shadowed by Gully Boy big time!

Check out the trailer here.

4.Kala Shah Kala

A Punjabi film is also releasing today. The film is about struggles of a dark skinned man who has trouble finding a suitor for himself owing to his skin tone. The role reversal is very interesting and looks like a complete entertaining film if you are into Punjabi films. The film will get better response in Punjab especially small cities.
