By Nathaniel Dalby - Wed 16th Jan 2019 Features

Check out the best of what's available on NOW TV Sky Cinema this month.

The cast of Solo: A Star Wars Story.

NOW TV’s Sky Cinema Pass allows you to watch every film featured on Sky Cinema completely on-demand and contract-free. Sky Cinema features a new premier every single day, meaning that there’s always something to enjoy. NOW TV also allows you to watch Sky Cinema channels live, so you can tune in even if you can’t decide what to watch right now. With such a huge library of hit movies available, it can be tough to decide what to check out first. Here’s our pick of the best of what’s available this month.

Solo: A Star Wars Story (January 18th)

The latest chapter of the Star Wars saga hits NOW TV Sky Cinema later this month. Solo: A Star Wars Story tells the origin story of basically everyone’s favourite Star Wars character, giving fans a look at how the scruffy-looking nerf-herder got his start in the world of space smuggling.

With a number of familiar characters (including a certain friendly walking carpet) and great performances from Paul Bettany, Thandie Newton and Woody Harrelson, Solo: A Star Wars Story is a fun romp that Star Wars fans will relish. Catch it from the 18th onwards.

Isle of Dogs (January 26th)

This charming animation from Wes Anderson carries the spirit of his Fantastic Mr. Fox movie and creates a brand new, unique universe. Isle of Dogs follows a group of dogs who have been banished from Japan as they try to make their way home and uncover a conspiracy by cats to suppress their kind.

In true Wes Anderson fashion, Isle of Dogs features the same quirky humour and exact framing as his live-action films, with a huge cast of voice-acting talent leading the show. Whilst it’s not necessarily something that kids will enjoy, Isle of Dogs is a stunning animation with an intriguing premise. Catch it from January 26th.

A Quiet Place (January 25th)

To inject a bit of horror into the cold January nights, A Quiet Place is a must-see. Directed by and starring John Krasinski alongside Emily Blunt, A Quiet Place is an effective and stripped-back horror/thriller, showcasing a world that has been destroyed by sound-sensitive aliens, meaning survivors must keep as quiet as possible or risk being killed.

A lot has been said about A Quiet Place since its release last year, and the hype is largely on point. Emily Blunt in particular shines in her role, with a hugely tense bathroom scene being a standout moment. The film proves that Krasinski is talented both in front of and behind the camera and with a sequel apparently on the way, now is the perfect time to catch up on A Quiet Place.

Red Sparrow (January 11th)

This Cold War spy thriller stars Jennifer Lawrence as a Russian spy - the Red Sparrow - who is recruited after suffering a ballet accident. She’s tasked with acting as a honey trap for an American CIA agent (Joel Edgerton) in order to steal secrets for the KGB.

Directed by Francis Lawrence, of Hunger Games fame, Red Sparrow is a suitably gripping thriller, offering the same Cold War espionage thrills as last year’s Atomic Blonde. Lawrence is masterful in the lead role and the setting is brilliantly convincing. Watch it on NOW TV Sky Cinema right now.
