BEAST, the new adventure/thriller starring Idris Elba and Sharlto Copley, opens in South African cinemas on Friday, 12 August.
Sometimes the rustle in the bushes actually is a monster.
IDRIS ELBA stars in Beast, a pulse-pounding new thriller about a father and his two teenage daughters who find themselves hunted by a massive rogue lion intent on proving that the savannah has but one apex predator.
Elba plays Dr. Nate Daniels, a recently widowed husband who returns to South Africa, where he first met his wife, on a long-planned trip with their daughters to a game reserve managed by Martin Battles (SHARLTO COPLEY), an old family friend and wildlife biologist. But what begins as a journey of healing jolts into a fearsome fight for survival when a lion, a survivor of blood-thirsty poachers who now sees all humans as the enemy, begins stalking them.
IYANA HALLEY plays Daniels’ 18-year-old daughter, Meredith, and LEAH JEFFRIES plays his 13-year-old daughter, Norah.
The film is directed by visceral, experiential filmmaker BALTASAR KORMÁKUR (Everest and 2 Guns and Contraband) and produced by WILL PACKER p.g.a., the blockbuster producer of Girls Trip, the Ride Along franchise, and ten movies that have opened No. 1 at the U.S. box office—including Night School, No Good Deed and Think Like a Man, and JAMES LOPEZ.
The screenplay is by RYAN ENGLE from a story by JAIME PRIMAK SULLIVAN.

About the movie
Experience the epic conclusion to the Jurassic era as two generations unite for the first time. CHRIS PRATT and BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD are joined by Oscar®-winner LAURA DERN, JEFF GOLDBLUM and SAM NEILL in Jurassic World Dominion, a bold, timely and breathtaking new adventure that spans the globe.
From Jurassic World architect and director COLIN TREVORROW, Dominion takes place four years after Isla Nublar has been destroyed. Dinosaurs now live—and hunt—alongside humans all over the world. This fragile balance will reshape the future and determine, once and for all, whether human beings are to remain the apex predators on a planet they now share with history’s most fearsome creatures.
Jurassic World Dominion, from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment, propels the franchise into daring, uncharted territory, featuring never-seen dinosaurs, breakneck action and astonishing new visual effects.
The film features new cast members DEWANDA WISE (She’s Gotta Have It), Emmy nominee MAMOUDOU ATHIE (Archive 81), DICHEN LACHMAN (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), SCOTT HAZE (Minari) and CAMPBELL SCOTT (The Amazing Spider-Man 2). The film’s returning cast includes BD WONG as Dr. Henry Wu, JUSTICE SMITH as Franklin Webb, DANIELLA PINEDA as Dr. Zia Rodriguez, OMAR SY as Barry Sembenè and ISABELLA SERMON as Maisie Lockwood.

I recently sat down and watched Fireheart with Hamish and absolutely love the story.
Not only because it shows a time where girls couldn’t just dream freely of becoming anything they wanted, but also because it teaches us to keep dreaming,live our passion, never give up and that you can be anything you want to with the right attitude.
If you haven’t yet seen this movie I highly recommend grabbing that popcorn and sitting down with the kids to watch it.
About the film:
In Fireheart, 16-year-old girl Georgia (voiced by Olivia Cooke) disguises herself as a young man, Joe, to join the male-only fire department. When a mysterious spate of arson attacks draws her former-firefighter father, Shawn (Kenneth Branagh), out of retirement, he and his team — Joe included — investigate.
My thoughts :
Age This film is recommended for children age 7+
Educational Yes as the movie highlights real firefighters from around the world in the credits and the film ends with a history of female firefighters in New York City. It is also a wonderful introduction to some of the training needed as a firefighter and to open discussion on why women were not allowed to become firefighters.
Positive role models Yes
Positive message Yes
Scare factor Slightly as the film discusses arson. Reference to people dying in a fire and some slight scare with people dangling from buildings.
Adult content none
Bad Language none
