The New Zealand International Film Festival (NZIFF) today reveals the much-anticipated 20th Live Cinema Screening in collaboration with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.
He’s Back, Bloodier and More Brutal Than Ever. Keanu Reeves is gonna Wick your ass — over and over again. Keanu Reeves’ master assassin returns for another round of gun fu, insane stunts, and magnificent mayhem.
The decision to fill a potentially generic, kid-focused toy adaptation with the quippy charm of Ryan Reynolds seems, on its face, the most cynical, sure-to-backfire outcome of the four quadrant mentality. The fact that it works as well as it does is just one of the magic tricks Pokémon: Detective Pikachu pulls off.

The word is out – Auckland has announced an exciting new, region-wide festival, Elemental AKL, and Craft’d Wine + Spirits Festival is proud to be one of the events.
