BoxOffice by DStv debuted its Cinema Premiere offering with Showmax’s latest international co-production, action blockbuster ROGUE, starring Hollywood superstar Megan Fox.
BoxOffice brings the cinema into your home, offering the latest local and international blockbusters for rental via your Explora PVR. Cinema Premiere is a new offering, which sees films premiering on BoxOffice, rather than on the big screen. This huge step forward for DStv is a way of helping safely showcase the latest films from local and international producers, in a COVID-19-affected world.
In ROGUE, Megan Fox (Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Jennifer’s Body) plays Samantha O’Hara, the hardened leader of a team of mercenaries who have been tasked with rescuing a Governor’s daughter who was abducted by a ruthless militia group in a remote part of Africa.
Just as they think they’ve completed their task, they face the unexpected and this time they’re not only dodging bullets and explosions, but also have to fight for survival against a pack of particularly vengeful lions.
ROGUE is the latest international co-production by Showmax, Mannequin Pictures and Capstone Pictures. The film was helmed by acclaimed action Director MJ Bassett (Altered Carbon, Strike Back, Silent Hill: Revelation).
“This is an exciting milestone for BoxOffice by DStv, which takes movie entertainment to the next level by introducing Cinema Premieres and supporting the film industry during these difficult times. We have an exciting line up of Cinema Premiere releases in the pipeline which will help both local and international producers premiere their films in people’s homes”. – Mark Rayner, CEO of MultiChoice South Africa
“We are very proud to be part of this BoxOffice first, and are excited for SA audiences to watchROGUE. It’s a showcase of local and international talent, both in front of and behind the camera, and is an action-packed, adrenaline-fuelled adventure ride that we think BoxOffice customers are going to love!”. – Producer Delon Bakker
The film’s star studded line-up includes home-grown favourites Jessica Sutton, (Motherland, The Kissing Booth), Brandon Auret (District 9, Elysium, Still Breathing), Sisanda Henna (Trackers, Griekwastad), Kenneth Fok (Warrior) and Greg Kriek (Black Mirror), alongside American stars Philip Winchester (Strike Back, Law & Order: SVU) and Fox.
