Ster-kinekor has got a great line-up of all sorts of movies to watch this month. We’ve put together Top 5 list of movies we recommend for you. The list is based on the hottest releases and also bringing together various genres from action, comedy and some thrillers.
Here goes our list:
This is for those who enjoy superhero films. Shazam, based on the DC Comics – is the seventh installment in the DC Extended Universe, directed by David F. Sandberg.
The film stars Asher Angel as Billy Batson, a teenage boy who can transform into an adult superhero, played by Zachary Levi.
In Billy Batson’s case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).
