Foxtel Movies

In a move sure to stun fans of the franchise, Foxtel today announced a second pop-up movies channel arriving in July featuring an incredible collection of twelve Star Trek movies starting with the original 1979 Star Trek: The Motion Picture epic up through the blockbuster hit, Star Trek: Into Darkness.

The news comes on the heels of this month’s launch of Foxtel Movies More, a brand new movies channel that increases the choice and variety of movies and boosts the total number of movie channels available on Foxtel to 10. Foxtel Movies More is available on channel 400 and will also be home to Foxtel’s special pop up channel events such as the upcoming Foxtel Movies Star Trek and last weekend’s Foxtel Movies Fast & Furious pop up channels. Foxtel Movies More and the Pop up channels continue Foxtel’s recent moves to bring fans some of the most popular movie series to enjoy as part of their Foxtel Movies or Foxtel Platinum subscription.

The Star Trek movie franchise has fed the imaginations of sci-fi fans everywhere from the early exploits that followed Admiral James T. Kirk (William Shatner), Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and Dr. Leonard ‘Bones’ McCoy (DeForest Kelley), played by the original TV series cast, through to the Star Trek: The Next Generation films and into to the newly rebooted films featuring a new Kirk (Christopher Pine), Spock (Zachary John Quinto) and McCoy (Karl-Heinz Urban).

Recognised as a pop culture, sci-fi phenomenon that crosses multiple generations, Star Trek has captivated fans who have watched the crews of the U.S.S. Enterprise explore strange new worlds and seek out new life and new civilisations since the original TV series debuted in 1966, and the movies that spawned from the TV shows continue to keep the passion alive.

The Foxtel Movies Star Trek Pop-Up channel will be available in HD* to Foxtel Platinum and Foxtel Movies subscribers on channel 400 from Friday 22nd July at 7pm to Sunday 31st July and features 12 of the action packed interstellar films, including:

· Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) – The Federation calls on Admiral James T.

Spock (Leonard Nimoy) monitor trainees at Starfleet Academy, another vessel from the United Federation of Planets is about to try out the planet-creating Genesis Device in a seemingly deserted portion of space.

Once more, Kirk takes command of the Enterprise helm, to meet Khan’s ship in an intergalactic showdown.

· Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984) – Kirk has defeated Khan, but at great cost. Spock has been killed, the USS Enterprise is being scrapped, and Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy (DeForest Kelley) has taken ill. McCoy’s odd behaviour is evidence he’s harbouring Spock’s katra (animating spirit), and Kirk takes the Enterprise back to the Genesis Planet to find his friend, only to encounter a party of deadly Klingons.

· Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) – Living in exile on the planet Vulcan, the former crew of the Enterprise takes off in a commandeered Klingon a starship after receiving a planetary distress call from Earth: a space probe has entered into orbit around Earth, disabled global power on the planet and is evaporating the oceans. Kirk, Spock and the rest of the officers travel back in time to retrieve now-extinct humpback whales, which are Earth’s only hope.

The ship appears to fire on a Klingon vessel, and the chancellor is killed in the confusion. Kirk and McCoy are arrested for murder, leaving Spock to figure out who really is behind the attack.

· Star Trek Generations (1994) – In the 23rd century, the Enterprise is dispatched to the scene of a giant energy field about to engulf two ships. Kirk averts calamity, but is exposed to the field and presumed dead. Years later, the Enterprise’s new commander, Capt. Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), learns that one of the disaster’s survivors plans to enter the field by destroying a neighbouring star. Picard now must collaborate with an unlikely ally in order to stop him.

· Star Trek: First Contact (1996) – Captain Picard and the crew of the newly commissioned Enterprise battle the insidious Borg to restore the rightful future of Earth. The Borg is trying to stop the invention of the warp drive by going back in time in order to alter the course of human history.

· Star Trek: Insurrection (1998) – A Federation mission takes a dangerous turn when a malfunctioning android, Data (Brent Spiner), takes a cultural task force hostage. When Capt. Picard and his crew investigate, they uncover the truth about the Federation mission – a ploy to displace the peaceful inhabitants. Now Picard and his crew must thwart the plot even while experiencing strange side effects from exposure to the planet’s surface.

· Star Trek: Nemesis (2002) – Captain Picard leads his crew on a diplomatic mission to initiate peace with the Romulans. But upon arrival on the alien planet, the crew is faced with a threat that could lead to the Earth’s destruction as Picard meets his most dangerous adversary yet.

· Star Trek (2009) – In a re-boot of the original Star Trek, a novice crew embarks on the maiden voyage of the Enterprise. Their path takes them on a collision course with a Romulan commander whose mission of vengeance threatens all mankind. If they’re to survive, a rebellious young James T.

From a galaxy far, far away, A Star Wars pop-up channel awakens

FOXTEL MOVIES STAR WARS POP-UP CHANNEL
Featuring all seven movies in the epic Star Wars saga

Friday 30 September – Monday 3 October

In an Australian television first, Foxtel Movies presents a dedicated Star Wars pop-up channel available to Foxtel Movies and Foxtel Platinum subscribers on Friday, September 30 from 6.00am AEST through to Monday, October 3.

This epic movie marathon will be the first time all seven Star Wars films will be broadcast back-to-back on Australian television, in what is an exclusive television event for Foxtel.

The marathon will feature all seven films in the legendary Star Wars saga, running back-to-back and in order, launching with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace right through to the most recent instalment which broke box office records worldwide, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The arrival of the channel marks the most anticipated pop-up on Foxtel Movies ever, following July’s massive sci-fi marathon Foxtel Movies Star Trek, delivering another smash-hit science fiction franchise to Foxtel viewers.

Foxtel Movies Star Wars will be available in HD* on channel 400, already home to a series of hugely popular pop-up movie channels that have left Foxtel’s movie fans thrilled and eager for more.

Star Wars has long been considered one of the most popular sagas in the history of film. It depicts a galaxy rife with personal and political struggles, set against the backdrop of the ongoing battle of “light versus dark” and playing out across three generations.

The original trilogy of the George Lucas inspired saga introduced the world to Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill); Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), Han Solo (Harrison Ford); Obi-Wan Kenobi (Sir Alec Guinness); Darth Vader (James Earl Jones); Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew); R2-D2 (Kenny Baker) and C-3PO (Anthony Daniels) before going on to a second trilogy that featured the young, ‘pre-Darth Vader’ Anakin Skywalker (Jake Lloyd, Hayden Christensen); young Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor); Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson); Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson) and Padmé Amidala (Natalie Portman).

The latest feature film Star Wars: The Force Awakens brings in a new generation to uncover the mysteries of the Force with Rey (Daisy Ridley); Kylo Ren (Adam Driver); and Finn (John Boyega).

More information on the seven Star Wars films featured on the Foxtel Movies Star Wars pop-up channel is below:

• Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (1999) - Stranded on the desert planet Tatooine after rescuing young Queen Amidala from the impending invasion of Naboo, Jedi apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn discover nine-year-old Anakin Skywalker, a young slave unusually strong in the Force. Anakin wins a thrilling Podrace and with it his freedom as he leaves his home to be trained as a Jedi. The heroes return to Naboo where Anakin and the Queen face massive invasion forces while the two Jedi contend with a deadly foe named Darth Maul. Only then do they realize the invasion is merely the first step in a sinister scheme by the re-emergent forces of darkness known as the Sith.

• Star Wars: Attack of the Clones (2002) - Ten years after the invasion of Naboo, the galaxy is on the brink of civil war. Under the leadership of a renegade Jedi named Count Dooku, thousands of solar systems threaten to break away from the Galactic Republic. When an assassination attempt is made on Senator Padmé Amidala, the former Queen of Naboo, twenty-year-old Jedi apprentice Anakin Skywalker is assigned to protect her. In the course of his mission, Anakin discovers his love for Padmé as well as his own darker side. Soon, Anakin, Padmé, and Obi-Wan Kenobi are drawn into the heart of the Separatist movement and the beginning of the Clone Wars.

• Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith (2005) - The Clone Wars rage through the galaxy. Asked to spy for both the Jedi and for traitorous Chancellor Palpatine, young Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker finds himself caught in the middle of the intrigue. Seduced by the dark side, he pledges himself to the evil Darth Sidious and becomes Darth Vader. Together, the Sith Lords set in motion a plot of revenge against the Jedi, even while Obi-Wan Kenobi tries to save Anakin. The former allies come face-to-face in a climactic lightsaber battle that will decide the fate of the galaxy.

• Star Wars: A New Hope (1977) – Set 30 years after Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, the fourth episode of the saga returns to the desert planet of Tatooine. A young Luke Skywalker begins to discover his destiny, when, searching for a lost droid, he is saved by reclusive Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi. A civil war rages in the galaxy, and Rebel forces struggle against the evil Galactic Empire. Luke and Obi-Wan enlist the aid of hotshot pilot Han Solo. Joined by quirky droid duo R2-D2 and C-3PO, the unlikely team sets out to rescue rebel leader Princess Leia and make use of the stolen plans to destroy the Empire’s ultimate weapon. In a legendary confrontation, the rogue group mounts an attack against the Death Star for a climactic battle with the evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.

• Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980) – The battle for the galaxy intensifies in this thrilling fifth episode of the unfolding saga. As imperial forces launch an all-out attack on the Rebel Alliance, Han Solo and Princess Leia flee to Cloud City where they are captured by Darth Vader. Luke Skywalker journeys to the mysterious, marshy planet of Dagobah, where the wise Jedi master Yoda teaches the young hero the ways of the Force. Little does Luke know his training will be called upon so soon. A stunning revelation and a seeming life-or-death dual with Darth Vader await.

• Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (1983) – In the spectacular climatic sixth episode of the Star Wars saga, Darth Vader readies the second Death Star to unleash the final blow to the Rebel Alliance. Luke Skywalker joins his droid allies R2-D2 and C-3PO, along with Princess Leia, to free his comrade Han Solo, imprisoned by the vile crime lord, Jabba the Hutt. Reunited, the rebels race to the moon of the planet Endor where they launch a desperate attack upon the entire Imperial Fleet. But the ultimate battle is between father and son, as Luke faces Darth Vader one last time, for the fate of the galaxy hangs in the balance.

• Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) – As Kylo Ren and the sinister First Order rise from the ashes of the Empire, Luke Skywalker is missing when the galaxy needs him most. It’s up to Rey, a desert scavenger, and Finn, a defecting storm trooper, to join forces with Han Solo and Chewbacca in a desperate search for the one hope of restoring peace to the galaxy.

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET POP-UP CHANNEL

Featuring all nine movies in the iconic horror series

Saturday 29 October from 6am AEDT – Monday, 31 October

All nine movies are also available on demand from October

Don’t fall asleep this Halloween weekend because Freddy is coming to Foxtel Movies!

In an Australian television first, Foxtel Movies will present a truly terrifying A Nightmare on Elm Street pop-up channel, available to Foxtel Movies and Foxtel Platinum subscribers on Saturday, October 29 from 6.00am AEST through to Monday, October 31. The movies are also available on demand from October.

The hair-raising movie marathon will feature all nine films in the smash-hit horror franchise, running back-to-back and in order, launching with the original A Nightmare on Elm Street film right through to the most recent movie in the series, the contemporary reimagining of A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010), directed by Michael Bay.

The pop-up channel follows on from Foxtel Movies’ enormously successful Star Wars marathon on September 30 – October 3, which topped the ratings on Foxtel over the October long weekend and achieved the highest ratings ever for Foxtel Movies.

A Nightmare on Elm Street, written and directed by Wes Craven and starring Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger, is one of the most iconic horror movies ever made, spawning a franchise of sequels.

Set in the fictional town of Springwood, Ohio, the plot revolves around a group of teenagers who are stalked and killed in their dreams – and in reality – by Freddy Krueger. Although the teenagers are unaware of the cause of this strange phenomenon, their parents hold a dark secret from long ago.

More information on the nine movies in the A Nightmare on Elm Street pop-up channel is as follows:

• A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) - Can your nightmares be fatal? In this classic of the horror film genre that launched a movie franchise, a hideously scarred, evil man who was murdered by a lynch mob returns years later in the terrifying nightmares of his killers’ teenaged children. And the dreaming teenagers are starting to die in their sleep.

• A Nightmare on Elm Street, Part 2: Freddy’s Revenge (1985) - Freddy’s back…and he wants revenge. When teenager Jesse Walsh moves to Elm Street, Freddy Krueger starts appearing in his nightmares. This time Freddy takes possession of Jesse’s body whenever the teenager falls asleep, using Jesse to kill. And there’s nothing Jesse can do to stop him.

• A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987) - Freddy Krueger invades the minds of a new group of teens – and the nightmares begin again. When local teenagers start dying, only Nancy Thompson knows the truth. Now a doctor at the local psychiatric hospital, she is the lone survivor of one of Freddy’s previous killing sprees. It’s a fight against her co-workers’ disbelief and a race against time to stop Freddy before he kills again.

• A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988) – Can your nightmares be fatal? Freddy Krueger resurrects - hideously scarred - and returns to haunt the dreams of the teenaged children of the people who lynched him. It’s just a nightmare…but a nightmare that can kill in this tale of terror.

• A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989) – Did you ever see a dream stalking? The kids on Elm Street have. For five years, a walking nightmare named Freddy Krueger has haunted their sleep – seeking revenge for the horribly disfiguring death he suffered at the hands of the children’s parents. Now, through the dreams of an unborn child, Freddy has resurrected himself…and he’s looking for new victims.

• Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991) – They saved the best for last. In this sixth return to the horrifying world of A Nightmare on Elm Street, the town of Springwood decides to forever end Freddy Krueger’s deadly hold on their dreams. Freddy finally confronts the one person he has never been able to defeat, a psychologist who now learns the source of her lifelong nightmares, Freddy’s daughter.

• Wes Craven’s New Nightmare (1994) – This time staying awake won’t save you. Ten years after writer and director Wes Craven brought his personal nightmares to the movie screen as Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare on Elm Street, the horrifying child killer returns, stepping out of his celluloid world to haunt the life of the actress who first defeated on film.

• Freddy Vs Jason (2003) – Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees (of the Friday the 13th movies) meet face-to-face, in the ultimate horror movie standoff.

• A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) – Freddy Krueger returns to everyone’s nightmares in this contemporary re-imagining of the horror classic, from Michael Bay (Transformer movies) and horror script maestro Wesley Strick (Cape Fear). Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen) plays the razor-fingered iconic killer who haunts the dream of teenagers and kills them in their sleep. Kyle Gallner (Smallville), Katie Cassidy (Supernatural), Thomas Dekker (Terminator), Kellan Lutz (Twilight) and more try to ward off the nocturnal attacks. But once they fall asleep, there is no escape. Delving deeper and darker in to the tortured past of Freddy, this new incarnation revisits Elm Street and one of the greatest horror franchises in history.

The A Nightmare on Elm Street pop-up channel will be available in HD* to Foxtel Movies and Foxtel Platinum subscribers on channel 400. Channel 400 is now home to a series of hugely popular and exclusive pop-up movie events.

The horror franchise will also be available to subscribers when and where they want, both live - and on demand with an internet connected iQ box^.

From memorable classics to comedies and action-packed blockbusters, each of the films picked by Chris have influenced his career, inspired him or are simply a sentimental favourite.

Chris’ first pick, airing this Sunday, November 13, is George Miller’s apocalyptic masterpiece, Mad Max: Fury Road.

Said Chris: “Mad Max: Fury Road was one of the best films I’d seen in years. I was in London shooting at the time and watching that film and going ‘This is why I go to the cinema!’ because it was unlike anything I’d ever seen before. Visually it was just a smorgasbord of all sorts of madness and chaos, beauty and ugliness. That world that George Miller created – I continually find new things about it that fascinate me.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton star in this action classic that spawned a franchise. A cyborg from a post-apocalyptic future travels back in time to kill a waitress before she can fulfil her destiny and save mankind.

This smash-hit comedy follows two divorce mediators (Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson) as they crash weddings looking for one-night stands. When one falls for a politician’s daughter (Isla Fisher) they get into deep water on a wild weekend.

17 November: Rush
Directed by Ron Howard, Rush centres on the rivalry between Formula 1 drivers James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) during the 1976 racing season, as they mercilessly clash on and off the racetrack and push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance.

18 November: Point Break (1991)

Something rotten is brewing beneath the industrial mecca known as Raccoon City. Unknown to its millions of residents, a huge underground bioengineering facility known as The Hive has accidentally unleashed the deadly and mutating T-virus, killing all of its employees. To contain the leak, the governing supercomputer, Red Queen, has sealed all entrances and exits. Now a team of highly-trained super commandos including Rain (Michelle Rodriguez - The Fast and the Furious, Girlfight), Alice (Milla Jovovich - The Fifth Element) and Matt (Eric Mabius - Cruel Intentions) must race to penetrate The Hive in order to isolate the T-virus before it overwhelms humanity.

Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004)
After narrowly escaping the horrors of the underground Hive facility, Alice (Milla Jovovich) is quickly thrust back into a war raging above ground between the living and the Undead. As the city is locked down under quarantine, Alice joins a small band of elite soldiers, led by Valentine (Sienna Guillory, Love, Actually) and Carlos (Oded Fehr, The Mummy Returns), enlisted to rescue the missing daughter of Dr. Ashford, the creator of the mutating T-virus. It’s a heart-pounding race against time as the group faces off against hordes of blood- thirsty zombies, stealthy Lickers, mutant canines and the most sinister foe yet. Written and produced by the visionary director of Resident Evil, Paul W. S. Anderson (Alien vs. Predator) and directed by Alexander Witt, Resident Evil: Apocalypse is a superior sci-fi suspense sequel

A new lead that promises a safe haven from the Undead takes them to Los Angeles, but when they arrive the city is overrun by thousands of Undead - and Alice and her comrades are about to step into a deadly trap

The Bourne Supremacy (2004)
Jason Bourne is living in India when he is framed by Russian agent Kirill (Karl Urban) for the theft of millions from the CIA. Kirill begins to pursue Bourne, intending to assassinate him.

Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner), one of Outcome’s six agents, and research scientist Marta Shearing (Rachel Weisz) go on the run when Byer targets them for termination. But Cross proves to be a far deadlier target than Byer realizes.

Jason Bourne (2016)

Hoping to draw him out of the shadows, CIA director Robert Dewey (Tommy Lee Jones) assigns hacker and counterinsurgency expert Heather Lee (Alicia Vikander) to find him. Lee suspects that former operative Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles) is also looking for him. As she begins tracking the duo, Bourne finds himself back in action battling a sinister network that utilizes terror and technology to maintain unchecked power.
