M-Net Movies takes no prisoners with its Bang Bang Heroes Pop-Up Channel, bringing back memories of larger-than-life blockbuster stars Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Bruce Willis and Chuck Norris, who will flex their pecs on the channel.
So get ready for a selection of non-stop, pulsating, explosive, jaw-breaking, bone-crushing, no-holds-barred movies, built around legendary Hollywood action heroes.
Hot on the heels of the M-Net Movies Marvel Studios Pop-Up Channel, the high-octane M-Net Movies Bang Bang Heroes channel is yet another unique pop-up offering – a testosterone-fuelled TV experience that will be available to DStv Premium, Compact Plus and Compact customers.
The M-Net Movies Bang Bang Heroes pop-up channel will run for 24 days: starting Friday, May 18 until Sunday June 10, and will screen a collection of over 90 movies featuring cinema’s most iconic pop-culture action legends.
While viewers will see eight incredible titles per day, each of these actors will have their very own time in the limelight one day during prime time.
For example, on Friday, May 18 Sylvester Stallone will strut his stuff in Get Carter, Cobra and Over The Top.
Saturday, May 19, then belongs to Jason Statham with The Transporter, The Mechanic Resurrection and Parker and on Sunday, May 20, Jet Li moves into action with The One, Romeo Must Die, and Dragon Fight.
Be sure to tune in when Bruce Willis takes on the world in every single instalment of the Die-Hardfranchise on Saturday May, 25.
Then, don’t miss Dolph Lundgren’s fighting spirit on Saturday, May 26, in Masters of The Universe, Universal Soldier: Day Of Reckoning and Skin Trade.
Catch all the action when Jean-Claude Van Damme, the Muscles of Brussels, shows off his brawn on Saturday, June 2 in Streetfighter, Shepherd, and The Sudden Death.
To round off this amazing experience the channel will play all three “Expendables” films on Sunday, June 10 beginning with The Expendables at 16:30CAT, followed by The Expendables 2 at 18:15CAT ending with The Expendables 3 at 20:00CAT.
