'No Time To Die' enters third big week

No Time to Die enters its third big week at Palace Amusement cinemas and continues to be the buzz locally and around the globe for all the right reasons – great scenes showcasing Jamaica, two British-Jamaican actress – Lashana Lynch as Nomi, the first double-07 agent, and Academy Award nominee Naomie Harris, who reprises her role as Moneypenny – and a soundtrack featuring the likes of Love In The Arena by Jah Buzz, Bam Bam by Sister Nancy, Champion by Buju Banton, Rastafari Way by Teacha Dee, and Shaggy’s Money Up featuring Noah Powa.

Opening Friday

DUNE

You have to be awake and ready!

Oscar nominee Denis Villeneuve ( Arrival, Blade Runner 2049) directs Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ Dune, the big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal bestselling book.

A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence — a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential — only those who can conquer their fear will survive.

Villeneuve directed Dune from a screenplay he co-wrote with Jon Spaihts and Eric Roth based on the novel of the same name written by Frank Herbert. Villeneuve also produced the film with Mary Parent, Cale Boyter and Joe Caracciolo, Jr. The executive producers are Tanya Lapointe, Joshua Grode, Herbert W. Gains, Jon Spaihts, Thomas Tull, Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt and Kim Herbert.

The film stars an ensemble cast including Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Academy Award nominee, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, David Dastmalchian, Chang Chen, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa and Javier Bardem.
