SPOTLIGHT | 'Queenpins', new 'Boss Baby' at cinemas
Kristen Bell comedy about an illegal coupon club is based on a true story, while the next generation of Boss Babies makes her appearance
Spotlight is our entertainment bite-sized snapshot featuring new entertainment releases in SA, exclusive film trailers and much more. New episodes are out every Thursday, plus you can follow Spotlight on Facebook.
In this week’s episode, we look at two fantastic new movie releases to enjoy at cinemas.
Queenpins is based on true events about a suburban housewife Connie (Kristen Bell) and her best friend Jojo (Kirby Howell-Baptiste) hatching up an illegal coupon-club scheme, turning them into millionaires. Throw in a loss-prevention officer played by Paul Walter Hauser, and Vince Vaughn as a postal inspector, and you have all the ingredients for an entertaining comedy. Spotlight includes an interview with Hauser about his character — and more interviews are shared on Spotlight’s Facebook page.
We also have a look at the next Boss Baby instalment featuring every family’s favourite characters, as they reunite in The Boss Baby: Family Business this weekend at cinemas. Tim (voiced by James Marsden) and his brother Ted (voiced by Alec Baldwin) are reunited by new Boss Baby Tina, who needs the brothers to help stop a villainous school principal. With rave reviews, a heartfelt storyline and wonderful humour, this movie is a great option for the whole family.
On the home entertainment screen, we feature a new offering, Till Death, on DStv Box Office. Megan Fox plays the lead character, Emma, who is stuck in a less-than-perfect marriage, but her plan to rekindle the romance with her husband turns unexpectedly bloody.
This week we also feature something on M-Net's Survivor SA: Immunity Island winner Nicole Wilmans — look out for Spotlight’s interview with her in the coming weeks.
