4DX MARKS 2ND ANNIVERSARY WITH RELEASE OF NEW ‘STAR WARS’ MOVIE
Bookings for all Nu Metro cineplexes open at 8am on Tuesday, 10 October 2017
Nu Metro has confirmed that, along with cineplexes worldwide, bookings for STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI will open for Nu Metro’s cinemas at 8:00 (South African time) tomorrow morning, Tuesday 10 October 2017.
The first screening of STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI is taking place at 20:15 on Thursday, 14 December at all Nu Metro cineplexes nationwide – including Nu Metro’s multi-sensory 4DX and fully immersive Xtreme theatres. This means that South African fans will get to see the film first at a special early screening, before the movie’s official global release date of Friday, 15 December 2017.
Nu Metro opened Africa’s first ever 4DX theatre at Nu Metro V&A Waterfront with the release of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS in December 2015. South Africa now boasts six 4DX cinemas nationwide, exclusive to Nu Metro. The release of the sequel, STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI, in 4DX at Nu Metro marks this revolutionary, multi-sensory cinema brand’s 2nd anniversary on local shores.
In Lucasfilm’s STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of THE FORCE AWAKENS join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.
The film stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro. STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI is written and directed by Rian Johnson and produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman. J.J. Abrams, Tom Karnowski and Jason McGatlin are the executive producers.
4DX features full-length movies in live action – a ground-breaking cinematic experience that stimulates the senses using high-tech motion seats and special environmental effects including wind, fog, lightning, water, scents and lots more. These effects are synced perfectly with the action on-screen to create the most exhilarating, unmatched cinema outing – only at Nu Metro.
With 4DX at Nu Metro, cinemagoers can feel the wind in their hair, they can feel sprays of water or blasts of air during sudden, unexpected action scenes; and they can smell the scent of the scenes on-screen – and be taken on an inter-galactic journey like no other.
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. Find 4DX at Nu Metro V&A Waterfront (Cape Town), The Pavilion (Durban), Menlyn Park (Pretoria), Hyde Park Corner (Johannesburg), Emperors Palace (Johannesburg) and the recently opened Cornubia Mall (Umhlanga/Mount Edgecombe).
Xtreme at Nu Metro can simply be summed up as “Big Screens, Big Sound, Best Digital Quality”. Nu Metro’s Xtreme cinemas combine Premium Large Format screens, 360-degree sound, along with recliner seating, advanced RealD™ “Precision White Screen” (PWS) digital projection technology (ensuring brighter, crisper visuals on-screen) and 4K Ultra High Definition visuals.
Sound in Xtreme cinemas includes overhead speakers and a large array of speakers placed strategically throughout the cinema—a vast improvement on the limitations of traditional cinema sound, moving past the confines of “stereo” or “surround sound channels.” Dolby Atmos delivers full all-around sound in the Xtreme cinemas at Nu Metro; sound objects can literally be moved around in 3D space.
Find Xtreme at Nu Metro Clearwater Mall (Jhb), Menlyn Park (Pta), The Glen (Jhb), Canal Walk (CT), Ballito Junction (KZN North Coast) and the recently opened Cornubia Mall (Umhlanga/Mount Edgecombe).
