F8 Crew Face Tough Trials When One Of Their Own Betrays Them

Coastweek -- NYALI CINEMAX gifts its audience with a pre-release screening of The Fate of the Furious (F8) this Friday while the movie is set to make a worldwide release on 14th April, writes Nidaa Malik.

It is the eighth installment in The Fast and the Furious franchise.

The world can’t get enough of Dominic Toretto and his multi-cultural gang, who have grown from simple street racers to heist kings in a Mission: Impossible-Ocean’s Eleven hybrid.

Now that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon, Brian and Mia have retired from the game, and the rest of the crew has been exonerated, the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life.

But a mysterious woman seduces Dom back into a world of crime that he can’t escape from, even if it means betraying his friends who then race against time to bring him back.

The crew will face trials that will test them as never before.

From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, our elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world’s stage…and to bring home the man who made them a family.

In true Fast and Furious style, there is plenty of gun fire, fast car action and amazing stunts.

F8 will unfold an epic battle between Diesel and his former racing friends.

The latest film in the street racing franchise sees many of the old gang returning to the fold – as well as some new but familiar faces starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Kurt Russell, Scott Eastwood, Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren.

The crime thriller is rated PG-13 for prolonged sequences of violence and destruction, suggestive content, and language.

Two middle-aged California Highway Patrol motorcycle officers soon find themselves in complex situations like none other when they get caught up in uncovering a band of corrupt cops within their own department in the action adventure, Chips.

Jon Baker and Frank “Ponch” Poncherello have just joined the California Highway Patrol in Los Angeles, but for very different reasons.

Baker is a former motorbike rider who’s trying to put his life and marriage back together.

Poncherello is a cocky, undercover FBI agent who’s investigating a multimillion dollar heist that may be an inside job.

The inexperienced rookie and the hardened pro are forced to work together, but clash more than click, so kick-starting a real partnership is easier said than done.

But with Baker’s unique bike skills and Ponch’s street savvy it might just work...if they don’t drive each other crazy first.

Director Dax Shepard’s action comedy buddy cop film is based on the 1977-1983 television series of the same name created by Rick Rosner.

The film stars Michael Pena, Dax Shepard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Adam Brody, Rosa Salazar and is rated Adults Only for crude sexual content, graphic nudity, pervasive language, some violence and drug use.

Naam Shabana is a prequel of Baby (2015) that provides the back-story of intelligence agent Shabana Khan, her journey from being an aggressive girl who carries guilt and a dark past on her shoulders to becoming a spy for the intelligence agency of the country.

It also traces her first major mission that involves eliminating an international arms dealer.

Other cast includes Akshay Kumar, Manoj Bajpayee, Anupam Kher and Prithviraj Sukumaran play important supporting roles in the film.

In the near future, Major is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals.

When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people’s minds and control them, Major is uniquely qualified to stop it.

As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major discovers that her life was stolen instead of saved.

Now, she will stop at nothing to recover her past while punishing those who did this to her.

Director Rupert Sanders’ science fiction action film Ghost in the Shell stars Scarlett Johansson, Takeshi Kitano, Michael Pitt, Pilou Asbæk, Chin Han and Juliette Binoche.

The movie is rated PG-19 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence, suggestive content and some disturbing images and screens in 2 dimension at CINEMAX.

Best friends Smurfette (Demi Lovato), Brainy (Danny Pudi), Clumsy (Jack McBrayer) and Hefty (Joe Manganiello) use a special map that guides them through the Forbidden Forest, an enchanted wonderland that’s filled with magical creatures.

Their adventure leads them on a course to discover the biggest secret in Smurf history as they race against time and the evil wizard Gargamel (Rainn Wilson) to find a mysterious village in the fully animated, adventure-comedy Smurfs: The Lost Village screening in 3 and 2 dimension.

Catch up with the last show of Life in which a team of scientists (Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds) aboard the International Space Station discover a rapidly evolving life form, that caused extinction on Mars, and now threatens the crew and all life on Earth.

The science fiction horror film is rated U-16 for language throughout, some sci-fi violence and terror.

Watch the last shows of Phillauri and Power Rangers whereby in the former a man must marry a tree to ward off threats to his love-life, but the tree turns out to have more ‘spirit’ than the man bargained for.

The Hindi romantic comedy film stars Anushka Sharma, Diljit Dosanjh and Suraj Sharma in lead roles.

In the latter a group of high-school students, who are infused with unique superpowers, harness their abilities in order to save the world from Rita Repulsa, a powerful witch and former Power Ranger, who launches an assault seeking the Zeo Crystal with an army of stone golems called Putties and a giant golden monster called Goldar.

The film stars Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Becky G, Ludi Lin, Bill Hader, Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks.

The classic musical romantic fantasy, Beauty and The Beast, is an adaptation of a fairy tale about a monstrous-looking prince (Dan Stevens) and a young woman named Belle (Emma Watson) who fall in love.

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

A team of scientists explore an uncharted island in the Pacific, venturing into the domain of the mighty Kong, and must fight to escape a primal Eden in the action and adventure film Kong: Skull Island screening in 3 and 2 dimension.

It stars an ensemble cast consisting of Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Jing Tian, Toby Kebbell, John Ortiz, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Shea Whigham, Thomas Mann, Terry Notary and John C. Reilly.

Badrinath Bansal from Jhansi (Varun Dhawan) and Vaidehi Trivedi (Alia Bhatt) from Kota belong to small towns but have diametrically opposite opinions on everything.

This leads to a clash of ideologies, despite both of them recognizing the goodness in each other in the romantic drama Badrinath Ki Dulhania.
