Featuring the Hobbit Trilogy, the Bourne Series and the Harry Potter collection.
Contrary to what you’ve heard, Sundays are meant for good food, family bonding and great movies. Regardless of whether you like Kung Fu favourites Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan, fantasy favourites like Harry Potter or spy thrillers, these 6 movie collections (all available to stream on Showmax) will elevate your Sunday cinema experience.
The Dark Knight Trilogy
The Dark Knight trilogy consists of three movies “Batman Begins”, “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises” and is considered one of the best of the DC Batman series of all time. Directed by Christopher Nolan, this unforgettable trilogy racked up three Oscars and is still acclaimed for ushering in a new era of superhero films that have made the genre the box office money machine it is today.
The Bourne Collection
Starring Matt Damon, this 4 movie collection has been a spy thriller favourite for years. While Jason Bourne has sometimes been compared to James Bond, the dark knight of the spy world is everything Bond is not – modest, reclusive, and he certainly couldn’t care less if his martini was shaken or stirred.
He’s the anti-hero who doesn’t care about being liked. Suffering from amnesia, Jason Bourne, a rogue CIA operative, decides to look for answers only to uncover a major government conspiracy.
The four movies include “The Bourne Identity”, “The Bourne Supremacy”, “The Bourne Ultimatum” and the fourth one featuring Jeremy Renner, “The Bourne Legacy”.
The Hobbit Trilogy
The Hobbit trilogy includes “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”, “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” and “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”. They all star Martin Freeman as the reluctant hobbit recruited to join a quest to recover the dwarves’ treasure from the dragon Smaug. The cast also includes Ian McKellan as Gandalf the Grey, Benedict Cumberbatch as the voice of the dragon, and Andy Serkis as Golem.
The Hobbit Trilogy is the prequel to the Lord of the Rings series.
Originally, this movie series that premiered in the ’90s featured only three movies “The Matrix” (1999), “The Matrix Reloaded” (2003), and “The Matrix Revolutions” (2003), which made pop culture icons of Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss and Hugo Weaving. However, Warner Brothers is set to release the fourth film sometime this year. So, it might be a good time to watch the first three.
The Kix Collection
Featuring no less than 30 movies, this martial arts collection includes a buffet of classics from the kung fu masters themselves: Bruce Lee in “The Way of the Dragon” and “Game of Death”, Jackie Chan “Police Story”, “Wheels on Meals”, “Crime Story”, and “Armour of God” and Jet Li in “Dr. Wai in the Scripture with No Words” and “Once Upon A Time in China” as well as classics like “Iron Monkey”, “Three”, “The 36th Chamber of Shaolin”, and “A Chinese Odyssey”.
The Harry Potter series
This juggernaut of a franchise remains one of the most beloved global Fantasy series in history. Featuring 8 individual movies, this collection of movies are the third highest-grossing film franchise of all time, with a global gross of over $7.7 billion. On the small screen, it still holds the record for the most-watched franchise in TV history, with over 1.3 billion viewings to date.
