Movies Now gets John Abraham to shoot promo for action flick initiative
MUMBAI: English movie channel Movies Now has roped in Bollywood actor John Abraham to shoot a promo for its new offering ‘Weapons of Choice’, which features action blockbusters every weeknight at 11 pm.
The promo shows Abraham believing that your enemy gives you just one chance, so your choice of weapon must be perfect! In the promo Abraham also cross-promotes his forthcoming film ‘Rocky Handsome’.
‘Weapons of Choice’ airs every weeknight at 11 pm with action films like ‘Man of Steel’, ‘XXX’, ‘Salt’ and ‘Knight And Day’.
The broadcaster says that these handpicked titles are memorable for not only the star value and the fast-paced storylines but also some signature weapons that have helped the films become cult action movies.
Abraham said, “Be it little kids, boys or grown up men, we’ve all been fascinated by action throughout our lives. I’ve mainlined on movies of super heroes, action men and never-back-down toughies locked in intense, fierce combat, gripping the weapons of their choice! That style and panache, their grit and guts have been the things that have kept us engaged and enticed! Action is definitely my favourite genre in movies, and I’ve myself pulled off a few stunts in some of my films, including ‘Rocky Handsome’, so I can tell you that ‘Weapons of Choice’ on Movies Now is an entertaining property with an excellent selection of some of my favourite movies.”
