Happy New Year! While we certainly have some post-holiday blues, nothing can damper the excitement buzzing around the EPIX offices as 2016 is going to be a big year for us. We’ve got some pretty awesome movies coming to the network AND we’re launching our first Original Series!
As the saying goes, “all good things come to those who wait”. We’ll keep you posted on all the cool stuff we’re planning and in the meantime, we’ve rounded up new movies on EPIX this month to hold you over.
Married To The Mob (1988)
An 80s mob movie starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Alec Baldwin with a healthy mix of action, comedy and great direction? Count us in.
Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin, this isn’t your typical zombie flick. A father-daughter tragedy that explores what’s lost in death, Maggie takes a different, more somber and serious approach to the zombie pop-culture craze.
Larger Than Life (1996)
This Bill Murray movie is one for the whole family to watch. When Murray’s circus clown father passes away he leaves him a huge inheritance – only in this case, it’s not money. It’s an elephant. The bond the two form changes both their lives forever and for the better.
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (1967)
In the mood for a solid Western? You don’t get much better than Sergio Leone’s The Good, The Bad and The Ugly starring Clint Eastwood. In fact, not only is it a genre gem, the film is one of the greatest of all time and a must watch for any movie buff.
Mission: Impossible (1996)
The fifth installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise hit theaters last July (and it’ll be on EPIX soon!) but you can watch the Ethan Hunt movie that started it all now. It’s the action film’s 10 year anniversary and I don’t care if you’ve seen Mission: Impossible before, it’s always a solid movie-night choice!
More Than A Game (2008)
If you’re a fan of Lebron James, basketball or sports documentaries in general, you’ll want to watch More Than A Game. Filmmaker Kristopher Belman examines the story of five friends chasing victory at an Akron, Ohio school that transforms into a look at stardom in the making.
