Six years on from their first adventure, Ralph (John C Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) are back and ready for more mayhem in this dazzling Disney sequel. This time around, the duo taps into this newfangled thing called WiFi in a bid to find a new steering wheel for Vanellope’s game Sugar Rush. Expect clever gags, misty-eyed moments and jaw-dropping animation.


Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Into The Spider Verse, available from Friday 9 August in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert PG

Take it from us, the first animated feature film in the Spider-Man franchise is a stunner. Miles Morales is a normal teenager who develops superhuman abilities after being bitten by a spider. When reality as we know it comes under threat, the youngster is tasked with saving the day (with a little help from some friends) in this funny, smart and visually spectacular box office smash.



Shoplifters, available from Wednesday 14 August in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15

From revered Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda comes this critically acclaimed domestic drama about a poverty-stricken group of people who shoplift as a means of survival. When they take a young girl in from the cold, the newest addition to this extended family is taught how to be an effective thief.


Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald, available from Friday 16 August in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 12

Magical-creature researcher Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) is back and searching for new finds, but the real beast in this brilliant blockbuster is Johnny Depp’s villainous Grindelwald. Seeking to push the magical world from out of the shadows, he comes into conflict with a certain Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) in this spellbinding adventure that boasts a script written by Harry Potter author JK Rowling herself.


Sorry To Bother You

Sorry To Bother You, available from Sunday 18 August in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15

Fans of quirky, dark comedies will love writer/director Boots Riley’s surreal satire. In an alternate reality of present-day California, LaKeith Stanfield (Atlanta) plays a black telemarketer who discovers he can make more sales if he adopts a “white” voice. But things take a really strange turn when he rises up the company ranks…



Aquaman, available from Friday 23 August in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 12

Jason Mamoa gets wet and wild as the titular superhero in this action-packed blockbuster based on the DC comic. Mamoa stars as Arthur Curry, the human-born heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis. Is he ready to realise his destiny of becoming king, or will an impending war blow his plans out of the water? Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman and Willem Defoe also star.


Bad Times At The El Royale

Bad Times At The El Royale, available from Friday 30 August in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15

Seven strangers. A load of dark secrets. One dodgy hotel. From the ensemble cast (Jeff Bridges, Chris Hemsworth, Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm) to the bloody violence and late-1960s soundtrack, this stylish thriller is very much a love letter to Quentin Tarantino from writer/director Drew Goddard. Is that a bad thing? Absolutely not. Get ready for a night of tension, twists and turns.
