Spotlight is our brand-new bite-sized entertainment snapshot featuring new movie releases in SA, exclusive film trailers and much more. New five-minute episodes will be published every Thursday in Sunday Times Lifestyle and on our YouTube channel.

Our first episode features everything that Hollywood is currently serving up for cinema audiences, and we take a peek at what there is to look forward to in the coming weeks.

Have a look at on-set insights from director Michael Chaves in the biggest horror film now scaring cinema audiences: The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It. This third instalment of the franchise is being called the gold standard of horror for good reason — and cinema audiences agree, if the box-office results are anything to go by. 

On a lighter note, there is the film adaptation of the Broadway musical In the Heights, and we feature some on-set behind-the-scenes footage. The spotlight is, however, firmly on The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, an exciting genre mix of comedy, romance and action. Salma Hayek, Samuel L Jackson and Ryan Reynolds play the main characters of this killer threesome.
