The Croods 2: A New Age

Available from Saturday 1 January in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert PG

Lending their vocal talent to the cast are a slew of stars, including Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Catherine Keener (The 40-Year-Old Virgin), Leslie Mann (Knocked Up), Clark Duke (Hot Tub Time Machine) and Peter Dinklage (Game Of Thrones).

 

Naked Singularity

Available from Sunday 2 January in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15

John Boyega’s Casi strongly believes he’s doing the right thing, working as a public defender and bringing the bad guys to justice. But when the system doesn’t uphold its end of the bargain, it’s difficult to keep the faith. With his principles challenged and his world falling apart, he becomes entangled in a lucrative drug ring on the advice of a former client (Olivia Cooke, Ready Player One). 

 

A Quiet Place Part II

Available from Friday 7 January in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15

Shh… they’re not in the clear yet. In this much-anticipated, nail-biting follow-up, the Abbott family are still on the run from the blind but deadly alien race.

The suspenseful sci-fi sequel is directed by John Krasinski (The Office US), sharing the spotlight with his IRL wife, Emily Blunt.
 

Land

Available from Sunday 9 January in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 12

Following a life-altering event, Edee (Robin Wright, also directing) can no longer find meaning in the world. To combat her vacant existence, she decides to up sticks and move into the wilderness, severing ties with the modern world. After a violent storm, a seasoned hunter (Demián Bichir) stumbles across Edee’s cabin, and teaches her the ways of the wild.
 

Save The Cinema

Available from Friday 14 January in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert TBC

With demolition vehicles lined up, Liz is running out of options. So, who better to call than the big man himself… Steven Spielberg. With an outstanding cast including Tom Felton (Harry Potter), Erin Richards (Gotham) Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes), comedian Rhod Gilbert and Owen Teale (Game Of Thrones), you’re in for a treat.

Pig

Available from Friday 21 January in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15

From the director of John Wick comes Nobody – the story of Hutch (Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul) who is by all accounts an average Joe happy to do his job, care for his family, and keep his nose clean.

Available from Friday 28 January in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 12

When Lt Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her team get caught up in an electrical sandstorm, they’re transported to a new world, brimming with savage, merciless monsters.

One Shot

Available from Saturday 29 January in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15

Lt Blake Harris (Scott Adkins) and his elite team of Navy SEALs have been tasked with retrieving a prisoner from a CIA black site.
