The Dry

Available from Friday 6 August in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15

Based on the bestselling novel of the same name, this mystery thriller sees federal agent Aaron Falk (Eric Bana), return to his drought-stricken Australian hometown to attend the funeral of his childhood friend, Luke. However, Luke is thought to have killed his wife and child before taking his own life, and Falk – albeit reluctantly – is taking on the case…

 

The Kid Detective

Available from Friday 13 August in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15

Abe Applebaum (Adam Brody) was once celebrated as the kid detective of his hometown, but as he grew up, he didn’t manage to maintain his head of steam. Now he’s 31 and washed up, but still clinging onto his dream of being a PI. Until, out of nowhere, a real case lands in his lap.

 

Extinct

Available from Friday 20 August in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert U

Op and Ed are flummels – furry, donut-shaped animals quite happily living their lives in the early 19th century. But when they accidentally stumble into a giant glowing flower, they’re teleported through time to modern-day Shanghai. And the worst bit… they quickly learn that their strange species went extinct in 1835. Expect tons of fun in this animated family adventure.

 

Wonder Woman 1984

Available from Friday 27 August in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 12

Gal Gadot is back for another epic adventure in the second instalment of the DC comic book franchise. The first film ended with the eponymous heroine (Gadot) overthrowing the God of War, Ares – her half-brother (and technically, grandfather – that’s Greek mythology for you, folks), thus ending The Great War. Fast forward to 1984, and the immortal Diana, now in full control of her superpowers, is keeping a low profile and working at the Smithsonian in DC. That is until one of the museums’ mystical artefacts falls into the wrong hands, threatening life as we know it…

 

Willy’s Wonderland

Available this August in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15

Nicolas Cage’s glorious reinvention as a B-movie hero continues in this irreverent horror comedy. This time he’s a night-janitor teaming up with a bunch of teens to fight off a group of animatronic puppets at a family fun centre, as you do. Let the battle for survival commence!

 

Dreamland

Available this August in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15

During the Great Depression in Texas, a teenage bounty hunter (Finn Cole) is tasked with bringing a beautiful fugitive (Margot Robbie) to justice. However, he becomes torn as he develops feelings for the bank robber he’s been sent to arrest.
