MONSTERS UNIVERSITY (Saturday, August 2nd at 21:00 hrs.) gives fans a closer look at how the relationship between Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sulley (John Goodman) came to be during their school years at Monsters University.

From Krypton to the comfort of your home, MAN OF STEEL (Saturday, August 23rd, 21:00 hrs), brings you the latest film adaptation of Superman. Clark is sent to earth from a different planet as a child and adopted by the Kent family. He later learns he has supernatural powers, and now the hero in him must emerge if he wants to save the world from an insidious villain.
After the food storm that erupted in the first film and the residents are forced to leave town, CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2 (Saturday, August 30th at 21:00 hrs.) revisits Flint Lockwood as his idol, Chester V, invites him to work at Live Corp, the company that has been tasked with cleaning up the island. But when Flint realizes that his machine still functions and is creating mutant food beasts – like tacodiles, shrimpanzees and apple pie-thons – he and his friends must return to save the world.
