Mun2 is setting the stage for a new Friday night movie showcase.
The NBC Universal-owned cable network aimed at bicultural U.S. Latinos will bow “Have You Cine” on Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. (ET/PT) with drama Harsh Times, starring Christian Bale and Eva Longoria. Mun2 will flank the linear offering with online interviews with actors and movie makers via holamun2.com/cine.
In addition to the weekly Friday night movie showcase, the network will continue offering the exclusive, “Have You Cine Chronicles,” a weekly short-form vignette covering the biggest movies out in theaters. The capsules will premiere as part of the network’s entertainment show, The mun2 Shuffle and will run throughout the programming day within mun2’s music blocks.
“Mun2 has been committed to movies for the past few years, bringing our audience exclusive interviews with artists ranging from Hugh Jackman to Gael Garcia Bernal,” said Flavio Morales, senior vice president programming and production for mun2. “The Have You Cine‘ franchise has evolved, as do the needs of our audience, and we’re excited to not only offer them this fresh, new movie line-up, but also bring our viewers closer to their favorite stars via holamun2.com.”
The rest of the Have You Cine Friday-night lineup this month: Feb. 12, Talento de Barrio, starring Daddy Yankee;
Feb. 19, Chasing Papi, starring Sofia Vergara and Roselyn Sanchez; and Feb. 26, Fast Lane, starring Melina Lizette and Kenyetta Lethridge.
