What do Denzel Washington, Vin Diesel, Samuel L Jackson and Idris Elba have in common? Aside from being some of the biggest names in Hollywood, they are the leading men who will be on the explosive new M-Net Movies Men of Action pop-up channel in the new year.

Other channel highlights include:

American Gangster: One of Denzel Washington’s most celebrated roles, the film tells the story of the rise and fall of drug lord Frank Lucas.

Pacific Rim: Starring Idris Elba, this sci-fi action film directed by Guillermo del Toro is set in the future, when the earth is at war with sea monsters.

Rush Hour: The Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan comedy is a modern buddy cop classic, and it’s about a Hong Kong police officer who teams up with an LA cop to solve a kidnapping case.

 Central Intelligence: Action-hero Dwayne Johnson and funnyman Kevin Hart team up for a laugh-a-minute comedy. A mild-mannered accountant is sucked into the spy game by an old high school pal.
