About THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD in Nu Metro 4DX (from 18 August 2017):

4DX will give cinemagoers a jolt of multi-sensory power, and make them a part of the action in THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD – starring Samuel L Jackson and Ryan Reynolds. The seats will move in sync with the car chases; air and water bursts will make the gunshots and other action moves come to life in sync with the on-screen action. 4DX deploys these effects along with wind, fog and other unique ambient experiences to take movie fans to a new level of immersive entertainment.

Movies are now no longer bound by their visual and aural limits. 4DX is the next step in the movie-going evolution, taking audiences on a journey into the full feature film.

The 4DX cinema experience can be found at Nu Metro Emperors Palace (Jhb), Hyde Park (Jhb), Menlyn Park (Pta), V&A Waterfront (CT) and The Pavilion (Dbn). Nu Metro is the first and only cinema group to premier the revolutionary 4DX cinema format in Africa.
