Avatar The Way Of Water in the Virgin Media Store




Looking for some ace entertainment? The Virgin Media Store is packed with plenty of brilliant new films to rent or buy this month

By Virgin TV Edit

Gather the snacks and plump up those sofa cushions… it’s time to bring the cinema to your living room with our newly-released blockbuster movies, indie films and family crowd-pleasers that you can rent or buy in May.


First on our must-watch list? The zany, colourful adaptation of box office smash The Super Mario Bros. Movie – listen out for a slew of celebrity voice cameos.


We’re also looking forward to spending a couple of hours in the company of Keanu Reeves, as slick and as combative as ever in John Wick: Chapter 4.


You’ll find chuckles and adventure in Shazam! Fury Of The Gods. But if you prefer your humour a little darker and gorier, there’s Scream VI or Renfield.


Dive into a sparkling new line-up of titles dropping in the Virgin Media Store this month, along with a brilliant array of exciting Box Sets to discover. Start whetting your televisual appetite with our round-up below.


The Super Mario Bros. Movie

Available to buy now or rent in On Demand > Movies > Premium Rentals. Cert PG

Colourful, nostalgic and pacy, this animated film based on Nintendo’s best-loved video game tells the origin story of our favourite moustachioed plumbers, Mario and Luigi, voiced by Chris Pratt (Guardians Of The Galaxy) and Charlie Day (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia). With plenty of inside jokes to delight the game’s fanbase, we follow the brothers as they explore surreal alternative worlds accessed via New York City’s sewer system and defeat some familiar villains. It’s a whole lot of fun.


Shazam! Fury Of The Gods

Available to buy or rent now. Cert 12

Zachary Levy (Thor: Ragnarok) reprises his role as the charming but often inept superhuman alter ego of teenager Billy Batson, played by Asher Angel (Andi Mack). The anxious teenager is provoked into battling the vengeful daughters of Atlas, aka Lucy Liu (Kill Bill: Vol. 1) and Helen Mirren (The Queen), playing it hilariously straight. In between, there’s lots of entertaining bickering between Billy, his foster siblings and their superhero alter egos, as well as dragons, unicorns and a brief interlude with Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) too.


John Wick: Chapter 4

Available to buy from Monday 29 May. Cert 15

In John Wick: Chapter 4, Keanu Reeves (The Matrix) reprises his eponymous role as a former assassin looking to defeat the High Table, the powerful crime syndicate that was once his employer. Thankfully, the film delivers everything we’ve come to expect from a John Wick film: endlessly creative stunt work and fight scenes, a mindboggling body count and impeccable tailoring – even while Reeves wreaks vengeance on his enemies.


Scream VI

Available to buy now. Cert 18

The sixth instalment of this long-running series is even more bloody than its predecessors but manages to retain a light-hearted tone thanks to a sharp, knowing script, plenty of plot twists and humour when you least expect it. The cast includes Courtney Cox (Friends) returning to her role as an investigative reporter as well as Scream V survivors Jenny Ortega (Wednesday) and Melissa Barrera (In The Heights).



Available to buy now or rent in On Demand > Movies > Premium Rentals. Cert 15

Creepiness and comedy come together in Renfield, a madcap spin on the classic Dracula story. Nicholas Hoult (The Menu) is in the title role as a vampire’s familiar who attends a co-dependency support group for advice on how to deal with a difficult boss. And by “difficult boss”, we mean the Lord of Darkness himself, played exuberantly by Nicolas Cage (Face/Off).


The Pope’s Exorcist

Available to buy now or rent in On Demand > Movies > Premium Rentals. Cert 15

This is a harrowing film – but that’s just what we’re looking for in a horror flick, isn’t it? Russell Crowe (Gladiator) stars as Father Gabriele Amorth, a Vatican-appointed exorcist tasked with rescuing a young boy possessed by a demon. But saving the boy’s soul is not straightforward; Amorth must first uncover a historic cover-up within the church and atone for his own sins, too.


The Fabelmans

Available to buy now. Cert 12A

This critically acclaimed film is a sensitive coming-of-age picture based on director Steven Spielberg’s youth. It earned a stack of Oscar nominations, including one for Michelle Williams (My Week With Marilyn) for her performance as a talented, creative woman and mother hemmed in by her marriage to a man of science. Gabriel LaBelle (The Predator) plays the stand-in for a young Spielberg, an aspiring film-maker searching for his creative voice and in awe of his mother’s passionate nature.


Women Talking

Available to buy now. Cert 15

Rooney Mara (Carol), Clare Foy (The Crown) and Jessie Buckley (Men) are among the who’s who of acting talent bringing this compelling story to life. The film captures an intense conversation in real time between a group of women who have suffered terrible abuse in a small, religious and isolated community. They are grappling with a big decision: whether to do nothing, stay and fight, or leave.
