What's on NOW Sky Cinema | January 2022
Check out the best of what's available on NOW Sky Cinema this month.
From action-packed blockbusters and epic fantasy quests to sweet romantic dramas and bone-chilling horror, you can enjoy it all with the NOW Sky Cinema pass. Here's our pick of the very best films coming to the service this month.
Quiet Place Part II
Sequels to major horror films can be incredibly hit-and-miss, for every Aliens or Evil Dead II there’s also Halloween: Resurrection and Jaws 3D, but thankfully John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place II is just as brilliantly intense and suspenseful as the first installment.
After the alien attack which destroyed their farmhouse, Evelyn (Emily Blunt), daughter Regan (Millicent Simmonds) and son Marcus (Noah Jupe) set out to search for other survivors. They’re also trying to weaponize the signal emitted by Regan’s cochlear implant which renders the aliens vulnerable to attack.
Despite what its premise and the presence of Nicholas Cage may suggest, Pig isn’t a bonkers John Wick rip-off. Under its absurdity, it’s actually an incredibly poignant and powerful exploration of grief and regret which features a magnetic performance from its lead.
Former celebrated gourmet chef Rob (Cage) lives a solitary life in the woods with only his beloved truffle pig for company. When she’sstolen one night by a group of thugs, he enlists the help of young truffle salesman Amir (Hereditary’s Alex Wolff) and journeys to Portland to get her back.
Acclaimed drama Mass sees two sets of emotionally-devastated parents attempting to come to terms with the events of a school shooting six years earlier. The troubled son of Linda (Ann Dowd) and Richard (Reed Birney) killed nine other students including the son of Gail (Martha Plimpton) and Jay (Jason Isaacs).
Set entirely in one cramped, drab room at the local Church, it’s undeniably a tough watch but those who do stick it out will experience a brilliantly raw, unflinching film. All four leads are on top form here and give absolutely fantastic, nuanced performances as they lay their grief out on the table.
While it doesn’t exactly bring anything new to the table, this slick, hyper-violent revenge thriller from the writer of John Wick Derek Kolstad is an incredibly fun time. Breaking Bad’s Bob Odenkirk (clearly having a blast) plays Hutch, a downtrodden, unappreciated factory worker and family man.
When his home is burgled and his young daughter’s bracelet is stolen, he finally snaps. Using the skills he honed as an top-secret assassin he sets off on a quest full of fantastically creative fight sequences to bring down flashy gangster Yulian (Aleksey Serebryakov).
Robin Wright, best known for playing steely First Lady Claire in Netflix’s House of Cards, directs and stars in this thought-provoking drama which boasts some seriously impressive visuals. It follows in the footsteps of similar films like Wild and the Academy-Award winning Nomadland.
Following the tragic deaths of her husband and son, Edee (Wright) purchases a remote cabin and retreats into the vast, lonely wilderness of Wyoming. She soon meets local hunter Miguel (Demián Bichir), who’s struggling with grief of his own, and the two form a touching bond.
