 M-Net Movies unleashes Superpowers in October

Watch out! The Superheroes are rocking up on a television channel near you.  So best you stay tuned to M-Net Movies – and especially M-Net Movies Showcase – on Dstv!

In October, M-Net Movies is hosting a gargantuan Superheroes Film Festival on M-Net Movies Showcase featuring the likes of Batman, Superman, Spiderman, The Fantastic Four, The X Men, Captain American, the Ghostbusters, Thor, The Avengers – and all their slick, yet tough-as-nails, nemeses, of course.

“This is the biggest Superheroes Movie Festival ever, “says M-Net’s Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard. “M-Net Movies has not only lined up hours of exhilarating entertainment created by these comic book legends; the heroes will also rock up every day of the week for an entire month. It’s a non-stop display of extraordinary powers, knocking down diabolic villains and saving mankind – all culminating into an epic television moment:  the premiere ofBatman: The Dark Knight Rises.”

Batman: The Dark Knight Rises is M-Net’s must-see Sunday night blockbuster movie on 27 October at 20:00 and at 20:30 on M-Net Movies Premiere (Channel 103 on DStv). The movie generated $448 million at the box office and raises tough existential questions about the nature of vigilantes, while keeping viewers glued with plenty of action-packed scenes.

The Superheroes Festival will feature a superhero movie at 19:00 CAT until the 31st of October.  On Thursday  George Clooney swirls the cape around his broad shoulders and thereafter hands over one of the most sought-after roles in Hollywood to Christian Bale for Saturday’s Batman Begins and Sunday’sBatman: The Dark Knight.  In the second week of October the spotlight falls on Superman with five Superman movies!  The following week, all the Marvel comic figures move in in the guise of Captain America, Thor, The Hulk, Iron Man and many more. But M-Net Showcase didn’t forget the unsung heroes.  They will get the M-Net Showcase salute with movies such as The Amazing Spiderman, Paperman, Blankman, Death of a SuperheroUnbreakable and Sky High.
