M-Net Movies Presents a Pop-up Channel with Hollywood’s ‘Top Gun’ Tom Cruise! Cruise will Control our DStv Remotes from 20 March 2020

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 11:00 WAT on weekends and will close around midnight. During the week, however, the Cruise films will be scheduled between 1:00 WAT 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 have 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 19:00 WAT 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 04:35 WAT with Mission: Impossible and ends with Mission: Impossible – Fallout at 14:55 WAT. 

“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 Martin Mabutho MultiChoice Nigeria Chief Customer Officer. “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. The titles will be available also on DStv CatchUp Plus via connected decoders for DStv Premium viewers.
