From action movies, comedies & romantic movies…the list of new movies doesnt end with us!  

We know the struggle when you’re all gathered around the TV with your snacks in hand and you just can’t decide on a single movie for the entire family…

This ensues a heated debate for dad to choose action, the kids to choose animations and mom to choose romance…well that doesn’t have to be the case anymore.

There are new movies for every member of the family on different days this March – so there will be no tug of war over the remote control.

Pencil them into your calendar, sit back and enjoy your favorite genre without interruption and without guilt!

For the dad who loves action & comedy

Action Point

Premiering March 14 on OSN Movies First



To all dads out there, we know that nothing beats a good movie on your couch, with a nice cold drink in your hand and full control of the remote after a long day at work.

Which is why this action, comedy new movie is the thing you need this weekend – trust us you’ll be glued to your seat.

From the same daredevil that shocked the world with his outrageous stunts in Bad Grandpa and Jackass,
Action Point brings you the same amount of comedy with a little bit of hilariously painful antics.

Johnny Knoxville plays D.C., the owners of a low-rent and extremely out of control amusement park but that doesn’t stop him from having the time of his life – even if he comes out with a few scratches and bruises.

The rides at action point are not up to safety standards (obviously) but are designed for maximum fun…however, the opening of a corporate amusement park across the street threatens all of this.

D.C. decides to save the fate of Action Point, so he must pull out all the stops…and stunts…to engineer one last memorable ride for all every adult with a kid at heart.

Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
Director: Tim Kirkby

For the little ones who love dogs

Isle of Dogs

Premiering March 15 on OSN Movies First



This probably isn’t the first time you hear of Isle of Dogs…because it’s just THAT good.

Scooping two Oscar nominations for Best Original Music Score and Best Animated Feature, you know that it’s going to be a good movie for your little ones.

Even for those adults who won’t admit to loving animated feature films….

But this new movie is the perfect option for every dog lover out there, who can’t go a day without thinking of these adorable furry little things.

And you’ll be astonished at the level of realistic detail behind every whisker, snout and fur in Isle of Dogs…in this stop-motion animation, you’ll be brought on a narrative that follows a canine flue outbreak in Japan, causing all dogs to be isolated on an island far away from civilization.

Our feature films dont stop here...there's lots more for you and the little ones!

However, a boy’s love for his lost rescue dog, Spots, causes him to befriend a pack of misfit canines who help him reunite with his furry friend.

Meanwhile, they uncover a government conspiracy theory behind the “flu outbreak” that helps the future of all quarantined dogs on the doomed island. 

Genre: Action, Comedy, Animation
Director: Wes Anderson
Rating: PG-13
 
For the mom who loves to sing

Mamma Mia 2: Here we go again

Premiering March 22 on OSN Movies First



Have you ever found yourself singing along to the songs to your favorite musicals? Good, because you’re not the only one.

Mamma Mia! is just one of those movies where you can’t help but mouth and lip sync all the lyrics in the movie theatre in hopes that no one notices.

But now that its on your screen at home, you can sing your heart out without feeling judged – so unleash your inner performer.

The first movie stared the talent Meryl Strep, Amanda Seyfried and Colin Firth and followed the story of a free-spirited Donna circa 1979 who decides to embark on a series of adventures in Europe.

Is date night coming up? Choose from a variety of cuddle-inducing movies for you and your hubby!

She ends up meeting Harry, Bill and Sam but falls in love with Sam and welcomes a baby girl called Sophie. However, Sam ends up breaking her heart causing Donna to move far away to the Greek island of Kalokairi.

And now the new movie sequel follows 10 years after the original story and is focused on Sophie as she reopens the hotel of her late mother – but this occasion reunites Sophie with her three fathers in Greece. Cher even makes a special appearance in the film! 

Even though the road to recovery for Sophie proves to be a hard path, this ends up bringing the whole family closer together in their time of mourning and celebration.

Director: Oi Parker
Rating: PG-13
