Movies On Demand on Cable Update March 2015
From beginning to end, March 2015 is filled with critically-acclaimed, award-winning and audience-pleasing films from the major studios, making their television premieres via Movies on Demand (MOD) on cable. From futuristic epic adventures, to life-affirming musicals, to heartbreaking true stories, March is jam-packed.
Adventure, Fantasy & Sci-Fi:
Box office juggernaut, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1, is the cornerstone of the month, with Jennifer Lawrence returning as the feisty Katniss Everdeen. Another huge hit is The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, which ends director Peter Jackson’s second Middle-earth trilogy in epic cinematic style. With earth no longer sustainable, Matthew McConaughey leads a team of Interstellar explorers out of our galaxy to find a new home for mankind, a film that just won the award for Best Visual Effects.
