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

The festive period is well and truly over and while January can be a little gloomy, there’s plenty of top-drawer entertainment on the Virgin Media Store to keep you entertained.

 

Humour might well be in order this month, so you can cackle away on the sofa with the hilarious The Banshees Of Inisherin or the heartfelt romcom Bros.

 

If you fancy a binge, the critically acclaimed The White Lotus returns for series 2 with more sharp scriptwriting and sordid chaos, while if a Western is more your thing then you can watch Yellowstone seasons 2 and 3.

 

We’ve also got a few darker watches, including spooky thriller Barbarian and grisly romance Bones And All, and there’s the superb #MeToo drama She Said starring Carey Mulligan.

 

Tempted? Here’s the latest pick of what’s available to buy or rent on the Virgin Media Store.

The Banshees Of Inisherin

Available to buy now. Cert 15

Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, who starred together in In Bruges, reunite for this comedy set on the west coast of Ireland. Colm (Gleeson) unexpectedly puts an end to his lifelong friendship with Pádraic (Farrell), prompting the latter to try and repair the relationship with help from his sister Siobhán (Kerry Condon, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) and young islander Dominic (Barry Keoghan, Dunkirk). However, Pádraic’s efforts only strengthen Colm’s resolve – with unexpected consequences.

 

Yellowstone

Seasons 3 + 4 available to buy from Monday 23 January. Seasons 1 + 2 available to buy now. Cert 15

This American Western sees the Dutton family embroiled in romance, secrets, murders and enemies – and facing constant attacks on their ranch. Kevin Costner (The Bodyguard), Luke Grimes (Fifty Shades Freed) and Kelly Reilly (True Detective) star. Tension grows over the course of the third season as the Duttons’ political ambitions grow, coming to a head as each family member realises their lives are in danger.

 

The White Lotus

Season 2 available to buy now. Cert 18

The award-winning series returns – and this time it’s set in the Sicily branch of The White Lotus hotel chain. As in season 1, we follow the exploits of the guests at this luxury resort over the span of a week. Needless to say, no-one has a relaxing holiday. Jennifer Coolidge (The Watcher) and Jon Gries (Napoleon Dynamite) return from season 1, but there’s an otherwise all-new cast that includes Aubrey Plaza (Parks And Recreation), F Murray Abraham (Inside Llewyn Davies), Tom Hollander (In The Loop), Haley Lu Richardson (Split), Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) and Will Sharpe (Flowers).

 

She Said

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

Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman) and Zoe Kazan (The Big Sick) star as New York Times journalists Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, who revealed the true extent of sexual assault in Hollywood in one of this generation’s most important news stories. She Said highlights the courage of survivors and witnesses who took the risk of coming forward to stop the same thing happening to other women – while also supplying gripping drama.

 

Barbarian

Available to buy now. Cert 18

Don’t turn the lights off for this creepy thriller! When Tess Marshall (Georgina Campbell, Black Mirror) goes to Detroit for a job interview, she rents out a holiday home for her stay – except somebody else is already in it.

She meets Lee (Chalamet), who is also an “eater”, and a very peculiar relationship begins…

 

Bros

Available to buy from Friday 13 January or rent from Monday 30 January. Cert 15

The heartfelt comedy sees two emotionally unavailable men stumble towards love and was hailed by critics as a return to the romcom heights of previous generations. Starring and written by Billy Eichner (Impeachment: American Crime Story), it’s a determined – as well as funny and romantic – effort to bring queer culture into the mainstream, and features an entirely LGBTQ+ principal cast including Luke Macfarlane (Brothers & Sisters), TS Madison (Zola) and Miss Lawrence (The United States vs. Billie Holiday).

 

Disney’s Strange World

Available to buy now. Cert PG

This brand new original Disney adventure tells the comic and thrilling story of the Clades, a family of explorers who try to navigate a challenging land with the help of a mischievous blob, a three-legged dog and other bizarre creatures.
