M-Net Movies Holiyays Festival
It’s holiday time and M-Net Movies has plenty to keep mini movie fans entertained with Holiyays. The festival will run on Premiere, Smile, All Stars, and Zone from 17 - 30 June. Get a taste of the fun below.
M-Net Movies Teen Fest
M-Net Movies All Stars on DStv channel 111 will also focus on giving the YA audience movies to obsess about.
M-Net Movies Premiere
We recommend: BlacKkKlansman. The latest movie from acclaimed director Spike Lee features powerhouse performances from John David Washington, Adam Driver, and Topher Grace. Based on retired police officer Ron Stallworth’s memoir, it was adapted for the screen by Lee, Charlie Wachtel, David Rabinowitz, and Kevin Willmott, and bagged them an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay, at this year’s ceremony. Make sure you don’t miss it! BlacKkKlansman premieres 9 June at 22:20.
M-Net Movies Action+
We recommend: Tomb Raider. A thrilling reboot of the adventures of Lara Croft, we loved watching Alicia Vikander take on the title role. A sequel is already in the works, with Vikander slated to return to the action.
M-Net Movies Action
We recommend: Apocalypto. Like Tomb Raider, this Mel Gibson-directed epic is set in the jungle. But it’s a very different kind of adventure to that of Lara Croft’s. Set in a Mayan village in the Yucatan, it’s a sweeping visual epic told through the journey of a young hunter named Jaguar Paw. It’s an oldie but a goodie, so if you’ve never seen it, make sure you check it out this month.
M-Net Movies All Stars
We recommend: The Honeymooners. You’ve got to get in your laughs as well, and this movie will make sure you get them. It stars Cedric the Entertainer, Mike Epps, Gabrielle Union, Regina Hall, and John Leguizamo – which just gives you five more reasons to watch.
M-Net Movies Zone
We recommend: 47 Ronin. With John Wick 3 currently out in cinemas, we just want to consume anything with Keanu Reeves in it. Then again, don’t we always? This samurai fantasy epic gives us the chance to do just that.
If you want to move out of Hollywood for a movie or two, check out these foreign titles on M-Net 101.
