M-Net Movies Presents A Pop-up Channel With Hollywood’s ‘Pop Gun’ Tom Cruise

By Soko Directory Team / March 20, 2020 | 11:47 am




M-Net’s second pop-up channel for the year, M-Net Movies Presents Tom Cruise, is taking over channel 109 from 20 March 2020.

As a special celebration to a magnificent cinematic career that has spanned four decades, DStv Premium audiences can enjoy almost every Tom Cruise film ever made – with thirty-eight movies featuring the Golden Globe-winning megastar as a leading man or supporting actor.

The earliest film in this Tom Cruise movie anthology curated by M-Net Movies is Taps from 1981 and the freshest addition is 2018’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout.

Cruise has carved out one of the most diverse and successful careers Hollywood has produced. Following his breakout performances in the teen comedy Risky Business, and as a testosterone-driven fighter pilot in Top Gun, blockbusters came thick and fast, such as Rain ManA Few Good MenJerry McGuire, and the wildly successful Mission: Impossible series, to name just a handful. He has never been typecast; he can do it all.

The M-Net Movies Presents Tom Cruise Pop-Up Channel will start at 12:00 CAT on weekends and will close around midnight. During the week, however, the Cruise films will be scheduled between 14:00 CAT and midnight. With a variety of films on the channel, viewers can look forward to seeing the different types of Tom Cruise: Sporty Tom, Action Tom, Serious Tom, Sci-fi/Fantasy Tom, and Sexy Tom.

Fans of The Mission: Impossible franchise also has to take note that these action-packed movies will be spread out over the first two weekends in primetime on channel 109 and will commence at 20:00 CAT on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. But on the last day of the pop-up on Sunday 05 April, there is a thrill-a-minute treat for viewers with back-to-back screenings of all the Mission: Impossible films. This movie marathon kicks off at 05:35 CAT with Mission: Impossible and ends with Mission: Impossible – Fallout at 15:55 CAT.

“To date, M-Net Movies has entertained audiences with sixteen extremely popular Pop-Up channels and we predict that this one will be another winner,” says Nancy Matimu Managing Director MultiChoice Kenya. “Tom Cruise is all the rage in 2020 and the channel leads-up to the much-anticipated Maverick, a sequel to Top Gun, a film that raised the bar in the action film genre by several notches.”

Maverick will hit the big screen 34 years after the original, which was the No 1 box office earner of 1986!

Remember, you can also enjoy these from your TV, laptop, tablet or cell phone on Dstv Now or DStv Catch Up.
