Big, bold movies on DStv, 11-17 June

Running from comets, a Bollywood mystery and a stunt man caught up in relic hustling – live out your action-adventure fantasy this week on DStv

It’s a new week and let’s face it – it’s cold! With weather like this, it’s best to snuggle under a warm blanket with a steaming hot cup of hot chocolate and a good movie. But if you don’t want to nap off, DStv has plenty of movies to keep your heart racing. There’s apocalyptic action, Bollywood thrillers and fantasy favourites to warm you from head to toe.

Gerard Butler has traded his butt-kicking skills from Olympus Has Fallen and 300, for the role of a father trying to save his family from impending doom in apocalyptic thriller Greenland.

Then if you’re in the mood for some Bollywood entertainment, Sadak 2 is a mysterious thriller about a young woman on a mission to expose fake gurus after suffering a family trauma at the hands of 1 such conman. And there’s butt-kicking Kung-Fu action in Defying Chase, in which a stuntman gets tangled up in shady criminal activities and has to fight his way out.

There are also some delightfully horrible dating disaster stories in store for Lifetime’s (DStv channel 131) Nightmarish Dating weekend, and don’t miss the musical drama in The High Note on Showmax.

Grab the remote and get cosy on the couch when you check out DStv’s home cinema collection here. And for more snack-sized info on DStv’s biggest shows, check out #OhSnack on the DStv YouTube Channel.

But lurking in the shadows is Harry’s greatest enemy, Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes), and with the help of Voldemort’s servant, Peter Pettigrew (Timothy Spall), Voldemort once again takes human form and starts pulling evil tricks.
