A Mars Probe Brings Lethal Organisms
In Daniel Espinosa’s Space-Horror Flick

Coastweek -- NYALI CINEMAX starts off your weekend with three brand news movies which make a world-wide release this Friday, kick-starting with a Hindi rom-com Phillauri, a science fiction horror film Life, a super-hero action flick Power Rangers and so much more..., writes Nidaa Malik.

Set in the Phillaur district in Punjab, Phillauri is about an NRI guy who returns to India to get married to his childhood sweetheart.

As luck would have it, his horoscope reads that he is born under an unlucky star; Kanan is told he must marry a tree before he can wed his beloved, as the ritual will cleanse him of his bad luck.

Grudgingly, he agrees.

To his shock, he finds himself being trailed by an unearthly spirit known as Shashi, who used to live in the tree and now insists that Kanan accepts her as his bride.

The bewildered spirit now finds herself trapped in the human realm, and Kanan must help her return to her own realm.

The story unfolds in flashbacks where Shashi a somewhat shy village girl is in love with a folk singer, but somehow was wronged which leads to her present predicament as a ghost bride.

The Hindi romantic comedy film directed by Anshai Lal and produced by Anushka Sharma and Karnesh Sharma will have Anushka Sharma, Diljit Dosanjh and Suraj Sharma in the lead roles.

A six-member crew aboard the International Space Station performs a successful capture of a space probe returning from Mars with a sample inside.

The classic musical romantic dark fantasy, Beauty and the Beast, is an eighteenth-century fairy tale of a young woman named Belle (Emma Watson), who is imprisoned in an enchanted castle by a fearsome Beast (Dan Stevens), who soon falls in love with her.

There, she learns that the Beast was a local aristocrat who is cursed by a mysterious sorceress with his servants into their current states as penance for their past callousness.

Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff — a teapot, a candelabra and a mantel clock, among others — and learns to look beyond the beast’s hideous exterior, allowing her to recognize the kind heart and soul of the true prince that hides on the inside.

Belle also tries to evade Gaston, a narcissistic hunter who is obsessed to have her for himself, ultimately leading to a confrontation between her suitors.

The drama is rated PG for some action, violence, peril and frightening images and is screening in 3D and 2D at the CINEMAX.
