Movies on TV

I caught the Twister promo at the end of the last ad break of Saturday ACA and noticed it was a new cut re-voiced (again) by the network male V/O, this was the version (minus those graphics), I’m guessing that was done due to the new ‘2D’ 9 logo:

Previous (longer) versions, original after getting rights from Seven with Ten’s former female V/O who did 9Gem for a few years and later re-voiced by Nine’s current female V/O:

More Disney / Fox titles coming to Nine… Previously on Seven and Ten.

I wonder if Nine have decreased their Warners licencing agreement (which it certainly appears they have), after getting back some rights following the end of Seven’s output. And have gone into an agreement, of similar calibre, with Disney.

Wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t see any more Disney or Fox titles coming on Seven (apart from onerous from Seven’s Fox output - there’s been some Searchlight titles premiering late at night lately on 7flix from 2020/2021 and that have already re-aired on Seven from late 2020 - think “The Rock” was the first upon Sir Sean Connery’s death).

Given the ABC seem to have signed with Warners now, with a large amount of back-catalogue movies on iView and airing on ABC Entertains in both daytime and primetime. But being non-commercial probably sees a different sort of agreement again.

A movie only run once every handful of years, 4 hours on CFTA, but should draw some crowd and across that time and very late on a Saturday should generate some handy share. Could see quite a few commenting online too as it airs.

Recall Seven only airing this once and an encore on maybe 7flix sort of 2018/2019 in their last 20C Fox deal. Nine aired it before that around 2016 IIRC when they aired a few 20C Fox features including Volcano which was recently played again. I’m sure Ten aired Titanic too. So I think it’s aired on all commercial networks over the years, premiered on Seven AFAIK around 2001 pre-9/11.

Friday, 26 July at 8.00pm on NITV

Outback Queensland, the early 1950s. The Thompson family - struggling to keep their outback farm from foreclosure - place their financial hopes on their horse, Prince, a favourite to win the New Year’s Cup. However, two horse rustlers named Bill and Sly (John Ewart and John Howard) steal Prince and make their way to a nearby mountain range to escape. But the thieves have underestimated the resourceful Thompson kids John (Mark Spain) and Helen (a 15-year-old Nicole Kidman in her film debut).



Great cult line-up on SBS World Movies tonight.

Cutthroat Island > Austin Powers > A Fish Called Wanda > Blue Velvet.

And Moonlight on NITV.


Didn’t Seven Air A Few Select Titles From MCA/Universal In The Late 90’s, Like Jurassic Park, Schindler’s List, Casper And Babe, Even Though Ten Had The Output Deal Back Then?
