The movies and series that will have you glued to the screen
True Detective What a year it’s been for actor Matthew McConaughey. An Oscar win for his role in 2013’s magnificent Dallas Buyers Club, plus the lead role in True Detective, a HBO show already being called the best thing on the goggle box since Baltimore crime epic The Wire. McConaughey stars alongside Woody Harrelson as two detectives who spend 17 years hunting a serial killer in Louisiana. 11pm, Tuesday April 1, OSN First HD.
Godzilla Fans of the legendary Japanese movie monster franchise were left as angry as the big lizard himself by 1998’s dreadful remake starring Matthew Broderick. Thankfully, this second reboot starring Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston should go some way to putting things right, if the trailer is anything to go by. Dark doesn’t do it justice. Here at Style, we’re more than a little bit excited. UAE release date TBA.
Guardians of the Galaxy Possibly Marvel’s most ambitious comic book movie adaptation yet, featuring a racoon called Rocket (voiced by Hangover star Bradley Cooper) and a tree-monster called Groot (with Fast & Furious stalwart Vin Diesel also on voiceover duty). An all-star cast including Zoe Saldana, Benicio Del Toro, John C Reilly and Glenn Close, (plus some unique special effects), suggest this action-adventure, which has its tongue firmly planted in its cheek, will be a big summer hit. UAE release date TBA.
Better Call Saul In April last year, it was revealed that a Breaking Bad spin-off series focusing on quirky quick-witted lawyer Saul Goodman was in development – and in March earlier this year, Aaron Paul (aka Jesse) let slip that AMC had signed the show for 24 episodes. Expected to hit screens in November 2014, the series will follow the exploits of Saul in the days before he set up his Albuquerque office, frequented by Walt and Jesse in Breaking Bad. UAE release date TBA.

After watching the trailer of "Guardians of the Galaxy" on YouTube, I am really excited to watch this movie. The cast is amazing which consist of Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Benicio del Toro, Glenn Close, John C. Reilly, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillian, and Djimon Hounsou. This looks like it will be a great movie and this summers Blockbuster!
