Civil War


Civil War is one thought-provoking film hitting theatres this Eid, delving into the unsettling scenario of a second civil war tearing America apart at its seams. Anchored in the backdrop of real-world tensions, including events like Charlottesville, the United States Capitol Attack, Antifa riots, and Black Lives Matter protests, the movie sheds light on the simmering resentment bubbling within the nation.

The return to New York City, the very backdrop of Ivan Reitman’s classic 1984 ‘Ghostbusters’, sets the stage for an electrifying paranormal adventure. Enter Garraka, the sinister ancient spirit hell-bent on amassing an undead army to challenge humanity’s existence. Fortunately, teenage prodigy Phoebe Spengler (Mckenna Grace) and her new Ghostbusters family find themselves bolstered by the assistance of the original heroes: the irreverent Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), the endearing Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), and the steadfast Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson).
