3 Brilliant Female-Led Movies to Watch at VOX Cinemas

Get your tickets before they sell out.


The best films to watch at VOX Cinemas across the Middle East

The best movies to watch at VOX Cinemas across the Middle East this March

 

This month, VOX Cinemas brings with it a host of strong female-led movies you’ll not want to miss, as some of Tinsel town’s most anticipated films hit the big screen in the Middle East.

Now more than ever women in Hollywood are speaking out and calling for a much-needed shift in the entertainment industry. Empowering movements such as ‘Me Too’ and ‘Time’s Up’ have caused a stir and inspired victims of abuse and harassment to speak out. 

Female stars are finally being granted a higher platform (and hopefully paychecks to match) to star and produce in more movies within a safe, equal environment. 

Scroll below where we reveal the top three female-led movies you need to watch this March. 


I, Tonya 


Watch the new Margot Robbie film at VOX Cinemas across the Middle East

Margot Robbie, one of this year’s most celebrated actresses, not only stars in the lead role of skating biopic I, Tonya, but the talented actress also co-produced the picture. Following the rise and fall of notorious American figure skater Tonya Harding, the game-changing film caused waves in the industry upon release and earned the actress some recent accolades. 

A crowd favourite and big winner during this year’s awards season, the dark comedy also stars Allison Janney and Sebastian Stan. 

I, Tonya has released at VOX Cinemas this March.


Tomb Raider

After the incredible success of last year’s Wonder Woman, we hope this is a sign of more things to come in the world of female action stars. 

Tomb Raider has released at VOX Cinemas this March.


The Shape of Water

Treat your mother to a special day

Treat your mother to a special day

 

In-between work, errands and social plans, fitting in family time can sometimes feel like a chore. But why not show the extraordinary woman in your life some love with a special day for just the two of you?

Whether your mother lives close-by or is in town on a visit, plan a day fun-filled day of bonding. 

With hundreds of retail outlets, countless dining options, beauty salons and activities on offer, the shopping malls across the Middle East will act as the perfect spot to host the occasion. 

Scroll down below where we share out favourite activities for the ultimate mother and daughter day out. 

 

Retail Therapy 

One cannot go to the mall without whizzing round at least a few stores – after all, shopping can be counted as cardio and will certainly up your daily step count. At Mall of the Emirates and City Centres, you will find endless retail havens devoted to everything you could imagine from fashion and beauty to lifestyle and interiors, plus electronics, sportswear and so much more. 

Why not treat your mum to a little something special, be it a handbag she admires or matching bracelets for you both. It will act as a tiny token for her to remember your day together. 


Silver bracelet by Pandora available at Mall of the Emirates and City Centres

We love Pandora’s custom bracelets – pick any metal and add as many charms as you wish. You can also gift a new charm to celebrate occasions such as your mum’s birthday or anniversary each year. 


Ladies Who Lunch

All that shopping will leave you both in need of refuelling so enjoy a bite at one of the numerous culinary offerings in the malls. In Mall of the Emirates we can vouch for Common Grounds and Besh Turkish Kitchen, and if you fancy indulging, a tasty Italian feast at 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza. In City Centre Mirdif you must try the super fresh salads at Le Pain Quotidien or Bistro Domino, in City Centre Deira, for mouth-watering French fare.

Enjoy a dose of R&R with a pampering treatment at the spa. In Mall of the Emirates, The Nail Spa is a top pick (also located in City Centre Deira) – choose from a broad menu of options including manicures/pedicures, massages and facials. The Spa By Pullman is one of the best spas in Dubai (located inside the Pullman Dubai Creek City Centre), and we recommend trying the Marine Breeze facial, which costs AED450 for 75 minutes of pure bliss. 

In City Centre Mirdif, Nstyle Nail & Beauty Lounge does unbeatable manicures and pedicures, while the newly opened Clarins is your one-stop-shop for all the latest in skincare and makeup treats.

The Road to Russia Starts at Mall of Egypt

After almost three decades of waiting, the Pharaohs of the Egyptian national team have made us proud, which means Magdy Abd El Ghany will need to find something else to tease us with! The magnitude of Mohamed Salah’s scoring that final penalty set Egypt into a celebration frenzy for all the right reasons. Our luck with the FIFA World Cup has been short of successful, only qualifying three times overall. But nothing about this international tournament is conventional either this year, with Italy and Netherlands being disqualified, lots of Arab countries joining (Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco) and most of the smaller teams getting an opportunity to join the battle of the fittest for the first time such as Panama.

Egyptian footballer Mohamed Salah in action on the field playing for Egypt.

Here are some other shocking things that happened in the World Cup over the course of the years:

A Goal in 11 seconds

In the 2002 World Cup, Turkey’s Hakan Sukur scored a goal in just 11 seconds. The goal helped the Turks defeat South Korea 3:2 and finish the tournament in 3rd place.

10 Goals in one match
Hungary takes the prize for most goals scored by a team in single World Cup match. In 1982, they made 10 goals to beat El Salvador in a group game 10:1.

3.2 billion people
Almost 3.2 billion people worldwide, roughly 46% of the world’s population, watched more than one minute of the 2010 World Cup making it “the world’s most widely viewed sporting event” according to FIFA.

Traffic light Inspiration

Yellow and Red Cards were first used in the 1970 World Cup in Mexico. Traffic lights inspired English referee Ken Aston to come up with the idea for them as a way of making it easier for players of all languages to understand the referee.

The Quickest Red Card
Uruguayan defender Jose Batista got a red card in none less than 56 seconds, eventually getting sent off of the court for a high studded slide tackle to the back of the legs of an English midfielder.

To keep the football spirit going, Mall of Egypt held a competition for shoppers to win a lifetime experience for two in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia. All they had to do was move through the field of Mall of Egypt, shopping and scoring points every time they made a purchase, bought groceries or revamped their wardrobe. The more they used their Visa Card, the bigger their changes were to make it to the World Cup.

Our lucky winners will be witnessing history in the making live from the roaring stadiums, allowing them to cross off a big experience on their bucket list.

HOW TO CELEBRATE NEW YEARS DIFFERENTLY

New Years is a fixed celebration where we make resolutions that we usually never remember two months after. New Year is celebrated all over the world, but surprisingly the festivities go beyond the partying.  The parties all over Cairo grab our attention, but what if we do something else and eat 12 grapes, fight people, break dishes or walk around the house with a suitcase?

It’s about time to go all out and have an international celebration with the coolest, weirdest and most outrageous traditions that bring luck, husbands and good fortune! Here’s a quick list of the coolest ones from all over the world.  

 

Spain – Eat Grapes!

Since 1985, the Spanish try to fit 12 grapes in their mouths before midnight and eat them all for prosperity and good luck. Fancy trying that?

Greece – Hang onions on your door and break a pomegranate

The Greeks hang onions on their doors as symbol of rebirth in the coming year. The fun part is, parents wake their children up by hitting them with an onion on their head. If you’re not into looking like you’re warding off vampires, break a pomegranate on your doorstep before entering your house for good luck and prosperity. 

 

Estonia – Eat eat eat

This ritual isn’t for the faint hearted! Eat up to seven, nine or twelve meals to gain strength for the following year like they do in Estonia. Leave the meal unfinished for the spirits or ancestors who visit the house to enjoy New Year too!

Denmark – Break dishes at your friend’s doors to make more friends!

Take a stack of dishes and pass around your friend’s houses on New Year’s Eve, breaking them at their doorstep. This Danish tradition is supposed to bring more friends. Pretty aggressive if you ask us!

Philippines – Fill your room with round things!

Get the cash flowing by surrounding yourself with round items such as stress balls, oranges or t-shirts that have a round shape. Filipinos believe that the round items bring on more coins.  

Romania – Throw your spare coins in the river

Just pass by the Nile River and make it rain!  

Ecuador – Burn everything

The pyromaniac in you can now rest. Make a life-size dummy made of newspapers, pieces of wood that represents misfortunes and burn it in the street along with any photos you want to get rid of.  

Japan – Smile and Ring Bells

This is a more peaceful approach for those of you who’d like to chill on New Year’s Eve. In Japan, Buddhist temples ring their bells 108 times to welcome Toshigami, the New Year’s God. They clean their home and send ‘thank you’ cards to their loved ones and also smile at everyone the whole day.

Ireland – Summon a husband!

This is for all the single ladies. Put mistletoe leaves under your pillow to summon husbands and have a better future in finding life partners. The Irish superstition doesn’t end there; they believe that if a tall, dark, handsome man enters after the 31st into your home, you will be a lucky gal. If it’s a red headed woman, you’ll be in a lot of trouble. Good thing that there aren’t many gingers in Egypt!

Peru – Fight people to settle differences

Now’s the time for your kickboxing classes to come in handy.  Settle your differences and start the year on a new note by physically fighting against the people you have grudges against. This aggressive yet quite intriguing ritual is done in small villages in Peru.  

Argentina – Eat beans and walk around with a suitcase at home

Forget the 2018 countdown. Spend your New Year’s Eve by eating beans and carrying a suitcase around the house to have a more generous year and travel more.

IT

 The scariest film you will watch this year

A seriously creepy remake of the classic horror film, Stephen King’s IT tells the terrifying tale of a corrupt clown (played by the talented Bill Skarsgård) as he hunts a group of kids. The movie smashed industry records with the third largest opening weekend of 2017. However, be warned, you’ll need a manicure post movie if you are a nervous nail biter – it is certainly a tense watch.

 

The Hitman's Bodyguard

 

The best action and comedy film to watch

 

With an all-star cast including Salma Hayek, Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L Jackson, and Gary Oldman, this action/comedy follows a top protection agent who must guard his mortal enemy, the world's most notorious hitman. Expect plenty of explosions, fight scenes and even a few laughs along the way.

The long-awaited new film from director Sofia Coppola (of Marie Antoinette and The Bling Ring fame) has finally hit the big screen.

The one place that is better than Sahel in Summer: Ski Egypt

Yes, we’ve all heard about how magical snow dropped on some homes in Cairo when the weather got overwhelmingly cold, but not to the point where we could’ve skied at any point.

Now that has changed. A new North Pole has welcomed its way into Africa. All you have to do is drive to Ski Egypt, Mall of Egypt’s newest attraction spot for those who are Eskimos at heart and can’t find their place in the scorching Egyptian sun.

With Ski Egypt’s new 7,700 square metres snow-filled ski resort, it’s time to throw snowballs, learn how to ski and slide down 30-metre long tube runs.

The experience is for everyone. Kids and adults can enjoy an icy, adrenaline-charged experience with ski slopes, a snow play area, snowboarding, and bobsleds. Can’t ski or snowboard? Learn how to with a group or private lessons by our professional ski and snowboard instructors. You can even buy your own personal gear at the Ski Egypt store and take your skills to the next level.

For those of you who are still snow shy, you can get into a huge air-filled Zorb ball and roll on the speed ramp or get into a bobsled and feel the adrenaline (along with the cold).

Got tired of the workout? Warm your senses with a creamy hot chocolate at the Snowflake Café designed with a beautiful Alpine theme from the highest point of the ski slopes as you watch your family slide through the angel-white blankets.

Therefore, if you want to slide, slip, throw, ride and feel the winter sensation all year round, Ski Egypt is your new go to destination.
