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

Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise in It

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.

It (Now)

This revisit of the Stephen King horror classic was a mega-hit when it released last year and is now available to watch via the NOW TV Sky Cinema Pass. Starring Bill Skarsgard as the menacing clown demon Pennywise, It sees the action moved to the ‘80s, giving it a Stranger Things vibe in a way that brings the aesthetic full-circle.

It takes the important parts of King’s 1000-page plus novel and takes out some of the more unnecessary features to create a sharp and effective chiller with the jump scares you’d expect from a modern big-budget horror movie. Next year will see the second part of the saga released, so now is the perfect time to catch up with Pennywise and his antics.

American Made (Now)

Tom Cruise takes to the skies once again in this comedy thriller that strangely flew under the radar when it was released last year. Cruise stars as Barry Seal, a maverick pilot who gets jobs for both the CIA and South American drug-runners in the 1980s.

American Made takes the endless star power of Cruise and constructs and funny and exciting film around it. Director Doug Liman takes the real-life story of Barry Seal and turns it into something that’s worthy of a film, even if it bends the truth somewhat to do it. Catch it now on NOW TV Sky Cinema.

Mother! (Now)

This experimental and visceral horror-thriller from Darren Aronofsky caused a stir when it released, splitting audiences down the middle with its complex themes and bizarre style. Mother stars Jennifer Lawrence as the wife of writer Javier Bardem, whose house is invaded after he declares it to be open to all.

Mother balances themes of nature and misogyny and combines them with shocking visuals to create a film that you’ll either be astounded or confused by. Whatever you end up thinking of it, Mother is well worth watching either way.

Blade Runner 2049 (June 15th)

Continuing director Denis Villeneuve’s record of modern sci-fi classics, Blade Runner 2049 is a visually astonishing neo-noir that expands on the mythos of the original whilst also excelling as its own film.

Ryan Gosling stars as K - a Blade Runner who is also a replicant - as he goes on the chase for Deckard (Harrison Ford), a Runner who went missing 30 years ago. During his search, he discovers more about himself and the world he lives in as well as a new threat to society. Blade Runner 2049 is a must-see for sci-fi fans, blending stunning visuals with a subtle and thrilling detective story. Watch it from June 15th.
