What a year for movies!

Buy and pre-order loads of fantastic cinematic entertainment from 2019, including Frozen II, on the Virgin Media Store

This year has seen some of the biggest films of all time, so naturally you’ll want to buy and keep them to watch whenever you want

Best Of The Year collection, available to buy and pre-order on the Virgin Media Store

Like every year in recent memory, 2019 was huge for superhero movies. Avengers: EndgameSpider-Man: Far From Home and Captain Marvel all roared past a billion dollars at the box office. Endgame went on to become the biggest movie of all time – and deservedly so, as these films all delivered both spectacle and stories, with awe-inspiring visuals alongside tales of heroism and redemption. But they certainly weren’t the only films to hit the jackpot in 2019, a year in which the biggest movies catered for pretty much every possible taste.

     


There was an entirely different type of comic-book movie in Joker, an absorbing drama examining the psychology of the characters we think of as villains, with a mesmerising turn from Joaquin Phoenix. The Fast & Furious series offered more earthbound thrills, while Pennywise the dancing clown returned to sow more terror in It: Chapter 2.

 

And while young audiences were enjoying fabulous sequels, like Frozen 2, that equalled or even topped the originals, grown-up moviegoers were treated to some grown-up movies, including a thought-provoking musical biopic and a revisionist tribute to Sixties Hollywood. So head for the Virgin Media Store to find these wonderful highlights of a terrific year in cinema…
