New on Showmax this June

June is shaping up to be an exceptional month for Showmax subscribers in South Africa, with a diverse and highly anticipated slate of new movie and series releases. From explosive blockbusters to critically acclaimed dramas and charming comedies, there’s truly something for every viewer.

Leading the charge on the series front is the eagerly awaited second season of the Emmy-winning fantasy epic House of the Dragon. This gripping Game of Thrones prequel continues the saga of House Targaryen, with their fight for the Iron Throne escalating into an all-out civil war. Fan favourites like Matt Smith’s Daemon Targaryen and Emma D’Arcy’s Rhaenyra Targaryen are back, along with new additions to the already stellar cast.

Another standout series arriving in June is Knuckles, the hilarious and action-packed Sonic The Hedgehog spinoff. Voiced by Idris Elba, the show follows the beloved echidna character as he reluctantly agrees to train a new protégé. With its laugh-a-minute antics and impressive voice cast, Knuckles is set to be a hit with families and fans of the Sonic franchise alike.

For those seeking pulse-pounding thrills, the explosive action flick Expend4bles assembles an all-star cast that includes Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, and Megan Fox. This high-octane adventure follows a team of elite mercenaries tasked with stopping a terrorist organisation’s nefarious plot to trigger World War III.

On the other end of the spectrum, Brandon Cronenberg’s critically acclaimed horror Infinity Pool promises a surreal and unsettling journey into a world of hedonism and violence. Featuring standout performances from Alexander Skarsgård and Mia Goth, this adults-only film has been hailed as a twisted and addictive ride by critics.

Lighter fare comes in the form of Greatest Days, a musical comedy based on the stage musical inspired by the hits of British boy band Take That. With a heartwarming story about friendship and nostalgia, coupled with beloved songs like “Back For Good” and “Shine,” this feel-good flick is sure to strike a chord with audiences.

Rounding out the June highlights are returning favourites like the gritty crime drama Power Book IV: Force, entering its second season, and the delightfully dysfunctional family comedy Home Economics, now in its third and final season.

With such a diverse and exciting lineup, Showmax is poised to keep viewers entertained and engaged throughout the month of June. Whether you’re in the mood for action, horror, comedy, or epic fantasy, there’s something for every taste and preference.
