Prime Circle Rock Out With The Voice SA Talent

The Voice SA: Prime Circle performs with Top 6 talent
Coach Lira joins the fray too!

The Voice SA talent received a huge surprise this week when one of South Africa’s biggest bands, Prime Circle, invited them to “party like rock stars” at a karaoke bar in their down-time. “I’ve never done karaoke before!” admitted a slightly cautious PJ Pretorius (26) from Secunda, but he took to it like a duck to water after the first few notes and some encouragement from the rest of the Top 6 talent and the rock super group.

The Voice SA cameras were there to capture all the action and in this week’s show on Sunday 25 June fans will see how the singers belted out sing-along songs to relax a bit before wowing the masses again this week. Prime Circle will also join them on the spectacular The Voice SA stage during Sunday night’s spectacular show.

The Top 6 are now back in rehearsals with their coaches, while one coach in particular is also preparing to perform this week. Coach Lira, who now has no more talent left in her team after Luke Lovemore exited the series last week, will wow The Voice SA audience with her track “How Far I’ll Go” from the feature film Moana.

Once again, the talent are preparing some classic chart-topper covers in their bid to vin the votes of the South African public and secure their spots in the Top 5 of the competition. Here is what they have lined up for this week:

  • In #TeamKaren, Kimberly’s Samantha Leonard (24) will be channeling Brandi Carlile’s “The Story”, while worship leader PJ Pretorius from Secunda (26) will also be keeping things contemporary with Shappard’s hit song “Geronimo”.
  • Comedic Fatman is taking on Robbie Williams’ iconic ballad “Angels” and his fellow #TeamKahn talent Craig Lucas (23) from Cape Town will be serenading audiences with Amy Winehouse’s classic “Valerie”.
  • Pop star Bobby van Jaarsveld’s Caroline Brussow (32) from Bloemfontein plans to belt out her second Sia track of the season, namely “Titanium” and musical theatre veteran Josh Ansley (31) will tackle James Arthur’s “Say You Won’t Let Go”.

With one more person leaving the competition on Sunday, voting for the Top 5 talent will open at the end of the show and will close on Tuesday, 27 June at 22:00. Tickets for The Voice SA live shows are available from Computicket.

The Voice South Africa, sponsored by Dialdirect, is broadcast every Sunday night on M-Net channel 101 at 17:30 and every Monday night at 18:00 on M-Net City channel 115.

Experience An Epic Battle When Transformers: The Last Knight Hits Ster-Kinekor IMAX

Transformer’s: The Last Knight is the fifth and last instalment in the franchise, and producer and director Michael Bay plans to go out with a bang… all in true IMAX style.

Bay says of the film, “A movie like Transformers needs to be seen using the finest tools, the best sound technology, the best sound projection technology and cameras.”

The sci-fi, action movie launches in South Africa on 21 June and will show at IMAX theatres, select Cine Prestige cinemas and Ster-Kinekor sites nationwide. This is the first movie to be shot in IMAX 3D, using two IMAX cameras on top of each other to experience 3D better than ever before.

The film is a direct sequel to Transformers: Age of Extinction which was released in 2014.

Transformer’s: The Last Knight sees Optimus Prime finds his dead home planet, Cybertron, where he discovers that he was responsible for its destruction.

Seeking redemption, he finds a way to bring Cybertron back to life, but in order to do so, Optimus needs to find an artefact hidden on Earth, and so begins the war between humans and Transformers. A precious artefact was hidden 1000 years before and the fate of Earth lies in the hands of an English Lord, Sir Edmund Burton played by Oscar-winner; Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee, a young Autobot and Oxford Professor Viviane Wembly (Laura Haddock).

The IMAX experience® of Transformers: The Last Knight promises to be the best yet, with its action-packed battles and fierce explosions.

With the pioneering filming technology used in the movie, Bay says the depth and resolution is beautiful and something you cannot fake, so you truly see two worlds colliding on the giant IMAX screen, adding to its projection system, which has always delivered life-like, crystal-clear images,

In addition to the unparalleled visual clarity, you can listen to the war cries of times past and present, with the powerful sound system that delivers laser-aligned sound. Travel to the time of King Arthur and his knights of Camelot as they take up arms and feel like you’re on the battlefield.

With the IMAX, customized theatre design, you will feel like you’re fighting for the survival of human-kind, spinning through the air as the 3D visual effects come alive. As war is waged, you will be torn between which side to support.

Enjoy the IMAX release of Transformers: The Last Knight – the IMAX® 3D Experience only at Ster-Kinekor’s seven IMAX theatres across the country, situated at Eastgate in Johannesburg, Cradlestone Mall in Krugersdorp, Mall of Africa in Midrand, The Grove Mall in Pretoria, Gateway in Durban, Baywest Mall in Port Elizabeth and CapeGate in Cape Town.

Film Review

Transformers: The Last Knight (IMAX) : Review

Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen – Transformers: Age of Extinction) is gone, Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg – Patriots Day, Lone Survivor) is in hiding, a wanted man, along with Bumblebee (Erik Aadahl – Godzilla).

The key to saving Earth lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth, and a link back to King Arthur (Liam Garrigan), Merlin (Stanley Tucci – Beauty and the Beast, Mr. Peabody and Sherman) and the Knights of the Round Table. Yes, there is a dragon, and it’s a Transformer, Knight Dragonstorm.

Flash-forward to present times, and we meet young Izabella (Isabela Moner), survivor of the Battle of Chicago, chased by a TRF Walker whilst saving a bunch of kids. As luck would have it, Cade is nearby, and in turn saves her.

So the story moves on, and Cade is taken to grand estate of  Sir Edmund Burton (Anthony Hopkins – Kidnapping Mr. Heineken, Thor: The Dark World), along with Viviane Wembly (Laura Haddock – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Guardians of the Galaxy), a professor in English literature. Here more of the story and past is revealed as we learn all about their links to the past, to the knights and the transformers.

There are a lot of characters, and a deep history, to keep track of, so one should keep one’s wits about them, as it gets yet more strange as Cybertron arrives, at the will of Quintessa (Gemma Chan – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit).

Michael Bay (13 Hours, Pain & Gain) redeems himself in this instalment of the franchise based on the children’s toy. But is it enough? This time round, it certainly feels better than Transformers: Age of Extinction. Certainly enhanced by the superior image quality presented in IMAX but the effects are still lead to one momentarily losing sight of who is good and who is bad in a fight, with all the twisting, turning and twirling of a fight between two huge machines.

Transformers: The Last Knight is fine for some escapism, if you don’t mind all the noise, sparkly effects, and a story that seems to be trying hard to keep the franchise alive for “just one more movie”. It’s not terrible, but it’s not great either. It’s a bunch of fighting machines, and a slightly over-the-top story. If you really want to see machines fight, see Power Rangers. It’s a lot funnier.

Transformers: The Last Knight opens 23 June 2017 in South African cinemas.


Warner Bros. Pictures And Legendary Pictures’ Monsterverse Kicks Into Gear As The Next Godzilla Feature Gets Underway

Michael Dougherty helms the film in which stars Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Ken Watanabe and Zhang Ziyi take on the King of the Monsters… and more!

Following the global success of 2014’s “Godzilla” and this year’s “Kong: Skull Island,” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse: an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history.

The film, which begins principal photography today, is being directed by Michael Dougherty (“Krampus”), and stars Oscar nominees Vera Farmiga (“Up in the Air,” “The Conjuring” films), and Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai”) and Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”), both reprising their “Godzilla” roles; Kyle Chandler (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Manchester by the Sea”); Millie Bobby Brown (“Stranger Things”) in her feature film debut; Bradley Whitford (“Get Out”); Thomas Middleditch (HBO’s “Silicon Valley”); Charles Dance (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”); O’Shea Jackson Jr. (“Straight Outta Compton”); Aisha Hinds (“Star Trek Into Darkness”); and Golden Globe nominee Zhang Ziyi (“Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”).

The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.  When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.

Dougherty directs from a script he wrote with Zach Shields.  The film is being produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Brian Rogers and Thomas Tull, with Barry H. Waldman, Zach Shields, Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira serving as executive producers and Alexandra Mendes co-producing for Legendary.

Behind the scenes, Dougherty’s creative team includes director of photography Lawrence Sher, whose past credits include “War Dogs” and “Godzilla,” for which he handled additional photography; production designer Scott Chambliss (“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Star Trek Into Darkness”); editor Roger Barton (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” the “Transformers” films); costume designer Louise Migenbach (the “X-Men” and “Hangover” films); and Oscar-winning VFX supervisor Guillaume Rocheron (“Godzilla,” “Ghost in the Shell,” and part of the Oscar-winning team behind “Life of Pi ”).

Filming is taking place mainly in Atlanta, Georgia.  A presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, the film is currently scheduled for release in March 2019, and will be distributed in 3D and 2D and in select IMAX theaters by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, except in Japan, where it will be distributed by Toho Co., Ltd.

Nul Is Nie Niks Nie Cast Prove Young Actors Can Deliver Great Performances

‘Nul is Nie Niks Nie’, a heart-warming and darkly amusing new film about life, death and everything in between, tells the story of three friends living in a sleepy town – Martin ‘Hoender’ (Jaden van der Merwe), Drikus (Pieter Louw), and Chris (Daniah de Villiers) – who set out to make Drikus’ dying wish come true – to make a zombie movie.

What makes the movie stand out from the slate of local films in recent years is that it revolves around performances by children.

“The story is brought to life through the brilliant performances of a charming and talented young cast,” says Helen Kuun, CEO of Indigenous Film Distribution. “As risky as it can be to hang your film on the performances of teenagers, this film proves that it can pay off handsomely if you cast the right children. Those who have seen ‘Nul is Nie Niks Nie’ have nothing but praise for the fresh, nuanced portrayals of three troubled youngsters living in an isolated town where nothing much changes.”

The discovery of this young talent seems all the more impressive for having seemingly come from nowhere. “We auditioned more than 400 kids to find our three leads,” says director Morné du Toit. “It was a demanding process, because the actors you cast in a film about young teenagers have to have a level of maturity to cope with the emotional demands of the story, which is at times comical and at times extremely poignant.

“What’s more, from  a director’s point of view, I was also tasked with capturing a different kind of magic; with children, there is a sense of temporality, of catching them at a specific moment in their lives, and of reflecting that with integrity and insight.”

Jaden van der Merwe (Hoender) was the first to be cast and he set the bar, according to Du Toit. “When we saw how he interacted with Pieter Louw (Drikus) and Daniah de Villiers (Chris), we knew we had nailed the casting. All three brought so much depth to the characters they portray,” he adds.

“In many ways, the young characters in this story have a lot to teach the adults who are able to undergo transformation thanks to what they learn from a trio of young misfits. The roles are reversed as the kids become the teachers and mentors”.

Casting the right young talent has paid off in several memorable films. Among the most successful child performances of the 21st century is Keisha Castle-Hughes in ‘Whale Rider’ (2003). At the age of 11, she played the daughter in a long line of sons who fights to fulfil her destiny as the leader of her ancient Maori tribe, despite the patriarchal nature of the clan’s traditions. The richness of the emotion she brought to this exceptional story earned her an Oscar nomination for best actress.

Another fine example is ‘Stand by Me’ (1986), which tells the story of four boys, inseparable friends all, who set out in search of a dead body that one of the boys overhears his brother talking about. The foursome comprised the intellectual Gordie (Wil Wheaton), born leader Chris (River Phoenix), emotionally disturbed Teddy (Corey Feldman), and chubby hanger-on Vern (Jerry O’Connell), all of them affected by the pressures of the adult world round them.

‘Lord of the Flies’ (1990), starring Balthazar Getty, Chris Furrh, Danuel Pipoly and James Badge Dale, an updated take on William Golding’s classic novel, depicts what happens when a group of American military schoolboys become marooned on a remote island after a plane crash. While initially cooperative, after the discovery of a ‘beast’, the boys split into two warring camps.

An enduring favourite is ‘The Man in the Moon’ (1991), a coming of age drama which was also a young Reese Witherspoon’s film debut.

Locally, the 1976 feel-good cult film ‘e’Lollipop’, told the story of a friendship between two young boys – one black, the other white – in the racially divided South Africa of the 1970s.

“What is charming about ‘Nul is Nie Niks Nie’ is the sense of watching real children who have a natural ability, proving that that age and experience don’t necessarily dictate talent,” says Kuun. “It’s exciting to see kids in memorable roles which show that they have acting chops on par with well-known names.”

Also appearing in ‘Nul is Nie Niks Nie’ are Morné Visser, Marisa Drummond, Antoinette Louw, June van Merch, Kim Syster, Bradley Olivier, and Francois Jacobs.

The film is produced by Redhead Productions and Faith in Motion Productions, in association with kykNET Films, the ATKV, and the DTI. It is being distributed in South Africa by Indigenous Film Distribution, and will be released in cinemas nationwide on 7 July.

Optimus Prime Transforms Into 4DX

Transformers: The Last Knight, the fifth film in the blockbusting series of action machine-spectacles, starts showing in Nu Metro’s cineplexes – including 4DX, 3D, 2D, Xtreme and VIP cinemas – nationwide from this Wednesday, 21 June 2017.

Nu Metro Cinemas will start showing Transformers: The Last Knight “day and date” with the rest of the world.  The film’s earlier release date this Wednesday coincides with cinemas worldwide – cinemagoers globally will witness the return of the Optimus Prime-movie power on the same day everywhere, including South Africa.

These ground-breaking multi-sensory theatres – exclusive to five Nu Metro cineplexes in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Pretoria – include environmental effects synchronised with Dolby 7.1 sound and crystal-clear RealD 3D projection.

Imagine flying through the air, fighting a fierce battle, followed by a rapid descent to earth, which is then followed by even fiercer racing on the ground. 4DX deploys specialised seat movements, wind, water, fog/smoke, lightning, scents and other unique ambient effects to make cinemagoers experience such movie action for real in the comfort of their cinema seat, in sync with the on-screen visuals – delivering a truly immersive experience like no other cinema can.

Transformers: The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).

There comes a moment in all of our lives when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes; and, heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.
