You can look forward to two new movies in Karachi this week. The Hunger Games continue in cinemas, with the fourth and last instalment of the franchise being released this week. Jennifer Lawrence returns as Katniss Everdeen, fighting the evil forces of an authoritarian government for the freedom of the people.
The Paranormal Activity franchise is back with yet another instalment. The Ghost Delusion focuses on the story of a family haunted by their daughter’s imaginary friend. This is meant to be the last film in a long running series. The Paranormal Activity movies, while cheaply made, are always good for a dose of fright, even if it is slightly unbelievable.
Spectre 007 is still in cinemas and has proven to be a crowd favourite. While the story-line leaves much to be desired it is, of course, a must watch for fans of James Bonds, if only for the action-packed sequences. Don’t miss out on the chance to introduce your little ones to a classic cartoon from you yesteryears. The Peanuts Movie is still in cinemas and is as delightful as previous cartoons!
