The Incredibles 2

Attention all superhero fanatics, animation geeks and families with nothing to do - the first family of the cinematic superhero world has returned in epic fashion. "Incredibles 2" launches today in SA cinemas nationwide. It's definitely worth the watch, too, as it has shattered the record for an opening weekend by an animated film in the United States.

Disney/Pixar

In "Incredibles 2", we follow members of the Parr family as they take on Screenslaver, a mysterious new villain who brainwashes people through their electronic devices.

"Oceans 8" also opens this weekend and sees Sandra Bullock and her cast of female cons plan one of the biggest jewel heists of all time. The film features Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson and Awkwafina, with Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter.
