It’s time to roll out the red carpet and find out which premieres are coming to Sky Cinema this month…

 

Tenet

Available from Friday 7 May in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 12

This mind-bending, Oscar-winning movie from Inception’s Christopher Nolan is a must-watch, especially since it’s one of the biggest new releases of 2020. The fight scenes are truly breathtaking and will make you wonder how on earth they filmed them long after the credits roll. John David Washington stars as the unnamed protagonist, alongside Elizabeth Debicki, Robert Pattinson and Kenneth Branagh, in this high-octane action thriller.
 

The Secrets We Keep

Available from Friday 14 May in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert R

Romanian refugee Maja Reid (Noomi Rapace, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) is attempting to live a quiet life following the trauma she faced during the Second World War. Her American husband Lewis (Chris Messina, Sharp Objects) and their son Patrick live in suburbia, but their happily ever after is threatened when Maja sees a man she thinks she recognises. She believes he’s a former German soldier who committed unspeakable acts against her 15 years ago – and she plans on enacting revenge.
 

Rambo: Last Blood

Available from Friday 21 May in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 18

John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) now leads a peaceful life raising horses on an Arizona ranch, until he’s forced to embark on his “final” mission. When his friend’s granddaughter Gabriela (Yvette Monreal) is kidnapped by a Mexican cartel, the Vietnam War veteran proves he’s still got what it takes – and he’s out for blood.
 

The Broken Hearts Gallery

Available from Friday 21 May in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 12

Art gallery assistant Lucy (Geraldine Viswanathan, Blockers) is finding it hard to move on in her life, because she’s still living in the past, and her refusal to let go of trinkets from her previous relationships certainly isn’t helping. When she bumps into Nick (Dacre Montgomery, Stranger Things), the pair decide to channel her heartbreak into something positive, creating The Broken Heart Gallery. Full of souvenirs of her own, and from others who decided to donate, the gallery becomes a powerful symbol of letting go.

 

If you’re looking for the real deal, you can visit the Museum of Broken Relationships, which has outposts in Zagreb, Croatia and Los Angeles. You can even send in your own stuff!
 

Breaking News In Yuba County

Available from Friday 28 May in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert TBC

Get ready for a bonkers journey from start to finish as Sue Buttons (Allison Janney, I, Tonya) gains local celebrity status when her husband goes missing. Or does he? Mila Kunis, Regina Hall, Awkwafina, Samira Wiley, Jimmi Simpson, Wanda Sykes and more star in this crime comedy that’s a welcome departure from a straighter detective drama.
 

The Queen’s Corgi

Available from Saturday 29 May in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert PG

Inspired by Queen Elizabeth II’s love of her corgis, this film is a fun adventure based around her favourite pup, Rex (voiced by Jack Whitehall). After the suggestion that Rex would be a great match for the US President’s pup, Mitzi, the mischievous canine gets him himself into a right royal mess, attempting to get himself back to “Buckingham P” asap.
 

Echo Boomers

Coming to Sky Cinema in May. Cert TBC

We all know Robin Hood stole from the rich to give to the poor, but what about the people who steal from the rich to give… to themselves? Based on a true story, Echo Boomers is about exactly that. Five university graduates decide to stick it to the man by robbing valuable paintings from Chicago’s elite, and trashing the rest. They’re supervised by Mel Donnelly (Michael Shannon, Boardwalk Empire), but they soon get a bit too big for their boots when greed comes knocking. Patrick Schwarzenegger and Alex Pettyfer also star.
 

The Roads Not Taken

Coming to Sky Cinema in May. Cert 15

Javier Bardem (No Country For Old Men) and Elle Fanning (The Great) shine as Leo and his daughter Molly in this thoughtful film that also features Salma Hayek and Laura Linney. British director Sally Potter (Orlando), who was influenced by her younger brother’s diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia, sets this film across the course of a day as Leo’s mental state declines.

 

Leo’s mind flits in and out of hallucinations about what could have been in alternate versions of his life. Potter explained to AnOther magazine: “We experience crossroads moments – we could go one way, or we could go another. After the choice is made, the question is, does some other part of you take the second route?”
