We look at the 25th James Bond instalment, No Time to Die, releasing this week in Imax, 4DX and 3D in cinemas. The longest James Bond movie to date, it is also Daniel Craig’s final outing as the MI6 super-spy.

Spotlight presenter Collette Prince heads to the Ster-Kinekor Imax in Eastgate to experience this jaw-dropping extreme cinema format, and remind us how much fun there is to be had with big-screen entertainment. With other blockbuster titles coming up such as Dune, The Eternals, The Matrix Resurrections, The Batman and Top Gun: Maverick in 4DX, Imax and 3D, filmmakers are pulling out all the stops to present their movies in the biggest and best cinema screen formats for maximum entertainment impact.
