2 Jokers, a spy network and a hurricane

Highlights 02 July 2021

Batman & The Joker go rogue, a hurricane threatens and whirlwind of Kung Fu movies, all coming this week in DStv’s movie line-up.

2 Jokers, a spy network and a hurricane

Take a ride on the wild side with DStv’s newest action-packed movies. We kick things off with the award-winning film Joker in which actor Joaquin Phoenix gives a chilling rendition of the Joker, a mentally unstable man who strikes fear into the minds of residents of Gotham City.

There’s hurricane madness in Force of Nature in which 2 police officers must evacuate people from the city while trying to avoid a panic-buying stampede, and then we have Kung Fu action in 3 brand-new KIX (DStv channel 118) movies, The Master of Kung Fu, Fearless Kung Fu King and Eternal Wave, where martial arts schools, rivals and revolution at the order of the day.

Robert De Niro is out to win a prank war in The War With Grandpa and there’s a super-duper Superhero movie weekend on Studio Universal (DStv channel 112), with DC Comics and Marvel comic heroes!
