Movies On Demand on Cable Update – June 2016 New Release Titles Make Their Television Premieres

June signifies romance, love, graduation, a new season, and a month of hit titles and award-winners from the major studios and indies making their television premieres via Movies on Demand (MOD) on cable.

 

BIG ANIMATED HITS

Zootopia, which received 98% positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, takes place in a “mammal metropolis” that is a metaphor for the earth’s habitats, where a wily fox and a rookie cop rabbit team up to crack a case. Po and his long lost Panda father are reunited in the return of a favorite franchise in Kung Fu Panda 3. When Po discovers a secret village of fun-loving, clumsy pandas, he must train them to defeat Kai, a supernatural villain who threatens to destroy Kung Fu.

FUN SEQUELS

Also boasting solid reviews is 10 Cloverfield Lane, the spiritual successor to 2008’s Cloverfield. The psychological thriller from producer/director J.J. Abrams (Star Trek: The Force Awakens) stars John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher, Jr. in an edge-of-your-seat nail-biter. In London Has Fallen, a secret service agent must protect the president from terrorists in the action-packed sequel to Olympus Has Fallen. It stars Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman.

 

MILITARY/MIDDLE EAST ACTION/DRAMA

Boasting 94% positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, Eye in the Sky stars Helen Mirren as a British Colonel in charge of a secret drone operation to capture terrorists in Kenya, which is complicated when a young girl enters the kill zone.

And from producer/director Michael Bay (Transformers franchise), 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi is the gripping true story of six ex-military operators assigned to protect the CIA.
