December premieres on Sky Cinema

December premieres on Sky Cinema

    

Musical cats, a super-fast hedgehog and some little women all await you on Sky Cinema in December…

By Simon Ward, Content Editor

The nation is gearing up for a December like no other – but at least one thing hasn’t changed, and that’s the sheer amount of quality coming your way on Sky Cinema this month. December is always a massive movie month, and 2020’s offering delivers like the crowd-pleasing ho-ho-ho man himself.

 

There’s a classic American novel revitalised, a pop culture icon making his big-screen debut and possibly one of the most talked-about films of all time.

 

What’s more, thanks to your handy Virgin TV Go app, you can watch Sky Cinema movies at home or on the go. So if the kids are hogging the telly, or the festive soaps have locked out the evenings, you never have to miss a moment of the TV you love over the holidays, no matter where you are.

 

Find out more about the Virgin TV Go app by heading this way now!

 

Now read on for all this month’s top Sky Cinema picks…

 

Dolittle

Available from Friday 4 December in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert PG

Robert Downey Jr is on typically winning form as the man who talks to the animals (we do the same with our cat, to be fair). Based on Hugh Lofting’s books, it features an all-star supporting cast including Emma Thompson and Tom Holland.

 

Emma.

Available from Saturday 5 December in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert U

Fans of the recent Armando Iannucci take on David Copperfield will enjoy this similarly amusing adaption of Jane Austen’s comedy novella. Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit) stars as the eponymous bonneted queen bee.

 

Little Women

Available from Friday 11 December in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert U

A deftly smart adaptation of the American classic from Greta Gerwig, her second solo directorial film after the brilliant Lady Bird. Saorise Ronan leads a glittering ensemble that includes Meryl Streep and actual Laura Dern. Perfection.

 

Sonic The Hedgehog

Available from Friday 18 December in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert PG

A movie that gathered as much social media fervour as a certain feline film on this list forced a radical design overhaul of the titular hedgehog before its release. More incredible, rave reviews followed. Jim Carrey is on top, scenery-chewing form.

 

Misbehaviour

Available from Sunday 20 December in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 12

Set during the 1970 Miss World pageant, a show that regularly pulled in 100 million viewers, this British film reveals why this particular year was such a history-defining contest. Keira Knightley, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Jessie Buckley star.

 

Trolls World Tour

Available from Christmas Day in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert U

Your Christmas Day soundtrack is here. With Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake lending their vocals, as the fate of the Troll Kingdom comes under threat, you’ll be singing until all the turkey is finished (sometime around mid-February, then).

 

Cats

Available from Boxing Day in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert U

One of the most discussed films of all time? Quite possibly. Now it’s time to step back from the internet chatter and make up your own mind about Tom Hooper’s adaption of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. A Boxing Day talking point!

 

Downhill

Available from Sunday 27 December in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15

Co-written by Succession and Peep Show’s Jesse Armstrong, and starring comedy royalty in Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell. They play a married couple forced to reassess things after they are nearly killed by an avalanche.
