What's on NOW Sky Cinema | October 2021
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.
Judas and the Black Messiah
Daniel Kaluuya gives an incredible performance as the Black Panther's Fred Hampton in this electrifying, powerful biopic told through the eyes of small-time criminal William O’ Neal (a similarly excellent Lakeith Stanfield) who was recruited to spy on him for the FBI.
Aided by its moody jazz soundtrack, a captivating sense of tension is slowly built as O’Neal inserts himself into Hampton’s inner circle and the FBI’s view of him as a threat is contrasted with his kind actions. All of which erupts into a truly tragic, unforgettable climax.
No Sudden Move
Prolific director Steven Soderbergh’s 35th film is this surreal, electric crime thriller which skipped a cinematic release and went straight to streaming. It starts off at a breakneck pace and never lets up, barreling through several gripping twists and turns in the murky underworld of 1950s Detroit.
Small-time gangster Curt Goynes (Don Cheadle) reluctantly accepts a hostage job with Charley (Kieran Culkin) and Ronald Russo (Benicio Del Toro). When it inevitably goes wrong, he’s sent on a wild chase to retrieve some important documents which may contain dirt on some of the city’s most powerful residents.
Directed, written by and starring Billie Piper, the sharp, nihilistic and darkly funny Rare Beasts has been described as the anti rom-com by many critics. It’s also got plenty in common with last year’s acclaimed dramedy I Hate Suzie which she also co-created with Succession writer Lucy Prebble.
An enjoyably chaotic mix of unusual camera shots, fantasy sequences and short musical interludes are used to tell the story of career-driven single mum Mandy (Piper) who embarks on a relationship with her caustic, borderline misogynistic colleague Pete (Leo Bill).
The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It
Great performances from Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as ghost-hunting couple The Warrens, plenty of deeply unsettling visuals and a chilling sense of dread all combine to make the third entry in The Conjuring franchise a really solid horror film.
As with the two previous films, The Devil Made Me Do It is also based on a real-life case. Arne Johnson (Ruairi O'Connor) claimed that after witnessing the exorcism of his girlfriend’s brother he became possessed by a demon which is what caused him to brutally murder his landlord.
The Little Things
While it doesn’t bring anything new to the genre, those who enjoy chilling psychological thrillers like Zodiac will find a lot to love in The Little Things. Along with its excellent core cast, John Lee Hancock’s film boasts a gripping mystery and a dark, menacing atmosphere.
Haunted by a the murder of a young women he couldn’t solve, troubled sheriff Joe Deacon (Denzel Washington) is paired up with fresh-faced detective Jim Baxter (Rami Malek) for another shot at the case. They quickly identify a suspect in strange mechanic Sparma (Jared Leto) but is he truly guilty?
