The name’s Cinema… Sky Cinema


Great news, film fans!  Sky Movies has had a Hollywood makeover and is now Sky Cinema: it’s bigger, better and has more blockbusters than ever before.  Strap yourselves in for a massive premiere every day, from the biggest films to family movies, and over 1000 movies on demand, ready to watch whenever you want. 

Whether you’re after high-octane action, or want to settle down with the kids, it’s all on Sky Cinema.  Check out some of the biggest films hitting your telly box this summer:


James Bond, trapped in a glass case of emotion

James Bond, trapped in a glass case of emotion

Bond is back and he’s better than ever.  Spectre kicks off in triumphantly Bondian style in Mexico City: sexy ladies, explosions, fights, collapsing buildings and an out-of-control helicopter are all flung at the screen before Sam Smith’s theme song even gets going. Throw in Oscar-winning baddie Christolph Watlz as a sinister baddie and Daniel Craig’s latest, and possibly last outing as 007 is premium Bond.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

Tom Cruise and The Escape From The Giant California Sushi Roll

Tom Cruise and The Escape From The Giant California Sushi Roll

If SPECTRE has you itching for more seriously slick spy action, you can get your fix with Tom Cruise returning as IMF agent Ethan Hunt.  As the title suggests, Hunt is forced to go rogue for his latest mission to foil a villainous plot to takeover the world.   Full of pure escapism, ridiculous death-defying stunts, busy music, attractive stars and funny quips, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is a proper popcorn movie you can enjoy with a bunch of mates on a rainy afternoon.


Awww, can we keep one

Those little yellow critters adored the world over by kids (and some adults!) get their own full-length feature in this prequel to the Despicable Me movies.  Our banana-loving goggle-eyed helpers go on an epic quest to find a new master, which leads them to Scarlet Overkill (voiced by Sandra Bullock), the world’s first ever super-villainess.  Other A-listers including Jennifer Saunders and Michael Keaton lend their vocal talents in this family-friendly adventure.

Minions is available on Sky Cinema from 30th July

The Martian

The mission to save Matt Damon.  Again.

The mission to save Matt Damon. Again.

Ridley Scott’s Oscar-nominated sci-fi lands on Sky Cinema on 12th August. Mark Watney  (Matt Damon) is an astronaut left behind and presumed dead on the red planet, but he’s got a few tricks up his sleeve, plus a library of disco hits, to ensure that there’s life on Mars.  Damon’s electrifying performance drives the film as his NASA colleagues try to work out how to bring him home.
