Whats Happening At The Cinemas – Geek Edition

We’re in the last couple of months of 2013 and there are plenty of new movie releases to look forward to, as we’re getting ready to plan our December holidays. Folks who are lucky enough to be in KZN during the next few months are in for exciting times as November will see the official re-launch of IMAX in South Africa. As anyone who’s seen a movie on the IMAX screen will tell you, its just not the same experience to watch blockbusters on the normal widescreen, big action adventure movies are waaaaayyyyy better on the all-encompassing IMAX screens. Now lets have a look at the few remaining geek titles of 2013, shall we?

Thor : The Dark World (Releasing 08 November 2013)

One year after the events of The Avengers, Thor battles to save the Nine Realms from a mysterious enemy older than the universe itself. This movie forms part of Marvel’s Phase 2 in the build-up to The Avengers 2 and stars Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman in this sequel to 2011’s Thor. Can’t wait….

About Linda Jager

Linda Jager
I’m proudly Geek and have a passion for all things pop-culture. Huge fan of The Walking Dead. Lover of gadgets and technology and although I’m not a gamer (sadly no hand-eye co-ordination) I find myself drawn to the gaming culture and community and how it connects with one of my biggest passions – collecting action figures and statues. I love to watch movies and series and there’s nothing better than having conversations with other people about the things I feel so passionately about. Being an 80’s child I am a huge fan of retro stuff and my Thundercats collection is one of my most prized possessions. That, and my A-Team van. Follow me on Twitter @LindaAtGES
