Mar 24, 2022

Doha, Qatar - March 24, 2022 Get in the mood for the Oscars before and after you watch your favourite movies and their film crews receive the ultimate cinematic recognition on stage. This March, beIN MEDIA GROUP (“beIN”), the global sports and entertainment broadcaster, is bringing you a curated selection of Oscar-nominated hits as you prepare for the 94th Academy Awards ceremony this Monday, 28 March.

 

Action and Drama Movies

 

If you are a fan of historical action movies, beIN has you covered. Director Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, the World War II epic which received 34 major nominations and eight awards in 2018, will play on Friday, 25 March at 22:00 MECCA on beIN MOVIES 2. Visually and emotionally intense, the movie talks about soldiers from the British Empire, Belgium, and France who try to evacuate from the town of Dunkirk during an arduous battle with German forces.

 

Next up on beIN is a marathon of superhero movies, with Nolan’s Batman trilogy, including Batman Begins (18:55 MECCA), The Dark Knight (21:15 MECCA), and The Dark Knight Rises (23:45 MECCA), all on Thursday, 31 March on beIN MOVIES 2.

 

If you appreciate the work of Sir. Anthony Hopkins, stay tuned for the drama movie The Father, which will be broadcast on beIN MOVIES 3 on Friday, 25 March at 23:30 MECCA. Starring Olivia Colman and Rufus Sewell, the movie talks about a man who refuses all assistance from his daughter as he ages and begins to doubt his loved ones.

Historic Blockbusters

If you have followed the Tate murders of 1969 for any length of time, Quentin Tarantino brings the incidents to life in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood with the perspectives of washed-up actors trying to navigate a rapidly changing film industry. Watch the craziness that unfolds on beIN MOVIES 1 on Thursday, 31 March, at 21:00 MECCA, but get ready for a lot of awkward laughter and unconventional storytelling typical of Tarantino’s style.

Also, on Thursday, 31 March, beIN MOVIES 3 will broadcast Ben Affleck’s Argo at 21:30 MECCA. The movie portrays the 1979 hostage crisis and how an exfiltration specialist masqueraded as a Hollywood producer in order to rescue six Americans who were held captive in Iran.
