Yesterday marked the first day of the Spring Festival travel rush, so logically it's the perfect time to dump four months worth of American movies into the cinemas here in China. For those that aren't stuck in a plane, train or automobile this weekend, there are six English-language movies now playing at the IMAX in the Gateway One Shopping Center. The Greatest Showman, Happy Death Day and My Little Pony: The Movie, have been added to the existing lineup of Maze Runner, Wonder and Ferdinand. The Greatest Showman is the story of P. T. Barnum (played by Hugh Jackman) has he built the Barnum & Bailey Circus and the lives of its star attractions. In Happy Death Day, the man actress re-lives the same day, similar to the movie Groundhogs Day except instead of capturing true love, she needs to catch her killer. My Little Pony well, needs no introduction. Click here to watch the official trailers or for movie listings and showtimes. The IMAX is located on the 3rd floor of the Gateway One Shopping Center across the street from Sea World.
