When Shrek premiered around the world in 2001, it was an instant hit. With big-name stars like Mike Myers (Shrek), Cameron Diaz (Princess Fiona), Eddie Murphy (Donkey) and John Lithgow (Lord Farquaad), this animated tale about a down-to-earth royal breaking down the walls of a mean-spirited ogre put DreamWorks on the map. This month, we promise to keep the whole family laughing (and learning a lesson or two) with our DreamWorks special featuring all your favourites, including feel-good story Abominable, Bee Movie, Shark Tale and Puss in Boots. For lovers of a twisted mystery, new Jude Law drama The Third Day will have you hooked, while our crime special reveals the intriguing tales you won’t want to miss. We also celebrate media commentator Paul Murray’s 10th anniversary at Sky News. A huge…

“we’re all in this together”

During times of uncertainty and upheaval, it’s always nice to see a familiar, reassuring face or two – and that’s exactly what we’ve come to expect from the trusted team at Sky News [103/600]. As Australians continue to adjust to the new normal of social distancing and, for many, working remotely or not working at all, Sky News’ revered journalists remain at their posts, reporting on breaking developments as they occur. That’s why more people than ever are tuning in. But as chief news anchor and Afternoon Agenda and Sunday Agenda host Kieran Gilbert (pictured right) tells Foxtel magazine, not even his many years of experience reporting from the nation’s capital could have prepared him for this state of affairs. “This is the most uncertain and troubling time that I’ve seen,” he admits…

mum’s the word

This Mother’s Day, ARIA Award-winner Tina Arena is taking over foxtel smooth, providing the perfect upbeat playlist to accompany your family festivities. Featuring a line-up that encompasses some of her favourite singers – and fellow mums! – including Adele, Kelly Clarkson and the late, legendary Whitney Houston, the devoted mother-of-one will also regale viewers with a little insight into her personal life as she reveals what she loves most about being a mum to teenage son Gabriel. “For me, the best thing about being a mum is just being a mum – it’s the best gig in the world and the hardest gig in the world,” she beams proudly. “Becoming a mum changed me for the better. That little bundle of joy is the best gift in life. Motherhood puts everything into perspective.” Watch…

rove’s back: “it’s really cool!”

Six years after lending his voice to the Monster Beach telemovie, Rove McManus has officially joined the Cartoon Network family, with the Monster Beach series premiering to rave reviews last month – and he couldn’t be more excited. “It means a lot to be in the same family as everything from Adventure Time to The Amazing World of Gumball!” McManus (pictured left) enthuses to Foxtel magazine. “Wow, it’s really cool! It’s been a labour of love.” McManus voices three characters in the fun animated series: Dr Knutt (right), “a possessed tiki mask and evil witchdoctor who has a very big ego, a very small brain and is a megalomaniacal idiot”; The Mutt, “a big, playful, slobbering dog-man with a gift for working on cars”; and Hodad, “the nervous, henpecked assistant of the…

start your consoles!

When the sporting world ground to a halt recently, as reflected in the pages of Foxtel magazine this month – screening times were correct at the time of going to print but are subject to change due to the current state of affairs – Supercars came up with an ingenious way to keep the competition going and fans engaged: an eSeries. For Jamie Whincup (pictured), there was some trepidation going into round one at Phillip Island and Monza, Italy, having never previously competed in a simulated racing series. “I usually back myself, but the young blokes have the advantage here,” the 37-year-old admits. “It will be a learning curve for me… but I’m looking forward to a new challenge.” The same can’t be said for 2019 Supercars Champion Scott McLaughlin, who is a…

My current TV obsession is… I love using TV as a way to escape to another world. I’m drawn to somewhat dark television series and shows like Game of Thrones, Westworld, The Walking Dead – anything somewhat dystopian it seems! When I watch television I must have… my phone nearby. I am a big fact checker and internet sleuth, so I love to have my phone with me to look up actors when they pop up or Google-search an event in a show or movie that’s based on a true story. My dream evening of TV would include… starting with some light-hearted reality telly while I eat dinner, then grabbing some popcorn or dessert and deep-diving into something gripping and dark like Chernobyl or Euphoria. My dream evening would also mean that…
