Keep the whole family entertained this Easter long weekend with Telstra TV. Relax and unwind with a new release movie, get hooked on the latest TV seasons express from the US, or grab some travel tips for your next holiday. Here are our top picks this week on Telstra TV.
Escape into an action-packed wildlife adventure with JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE, fresh from the cinema on BigPond Movies. A sequel to the 1995 film starring Robin Williams, the enchanted board game has now morphed itself into a retro video game, luring in a group of high school detention kids who take on the adult personas of the intrepid Dr. Smolder Bravestone (Dwayne Johnson), diminutive zoologist Franklin “Mouse” Finbar (Kevin Hart), bookish map-maker Professor Sheldon Oberon (Jack Black) and martial arts fighter Ruby Roundhouse (Karen Gillan). Once inside the game, their only way out is to survive a perilous expedition through the jungle, helped along by Jefferson Seaplane McDonough (Nick Jonas) who has been trapped alone inside the game for the past 20 years.
To celebrate the film’s release on Telstra TV, BigPond Movies is giving you the chance to win a Jumanji-inspired family holiday for four to tropical North Queensland. Valued at $5000, the prize includes return flights from your nearest capital city to Cairns, four nights accommodation, a Jungle Surfing Canopy tour and spending money for your trip. To enter, simply buy^ Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle on BigPond Movies and complete the online entry form by 17 April 2018. Conditions apply.
Suits (Foxtel Now)
The second half of SUITS season 7 returns weekly to Foxtel Now, from Thursday 29 March at 8:30pm (AEDT). With only six episodes to go until Meghan Markle leaves the series to marry Prince Harry, it’s rumoured that the season will conclude with a wedding of its own – as Rachel and her finance Mike (played by Patrick J. Adams) tie the knot and ride off into the sunset. Until then – spoiler alert if you haven’t seen the first half of the season – Harvey (Gabriel Macht) must come to terms with fellow partner Jessica (Gina Torres) being disbarred and the ‘Pearson’ name being stripped from the firm, as well as the implications of a kiss from Donna, his former secretary and now COO of the firm. Mike, the college dropout who became Harvey’s protégé, learns to balance his life as a junior partner at a big firm with his pro bono work for the Eastside Legal Clinic. And Louis (Rick Hoffman) continues his complicated affair with Sheila (Rachael Harris).
