Read on to find out what’s new on Sky Cinema in February.

 

Insidious: The Red Door

Available from Friday 2 February in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15

The highest-grossing film of the Insidious franchise, the fifth instalment of this creepy horror series will keep you right on the edge of your seat. A sequel to Insidious: Chapter 2, the movie takes us back inside the world of the now-divorced Josh and Renai Lambert and their grown-up son Dalton, who got them tangled up in the spirit world (aka The Further) in the first place. This time, the family must go further than ever to attempt to put their demons to rest once and for all. With strong repeat performances from Patrick Wilson (Aquaman), Rose Byrne (Damages) and Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3), this is terrifying, tantalising stuff with ghosts, chills and jump scares galore.

 

The Bricklayer

Available from Saturday 3 February in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert TBA

Based on a novel by former FBI agent Paul Lindsay (pen name: Noah Boyd), this new, pulse-pounding action thriller is a Reacher-style blast from start to finish. A rogue insurgent is blackmailing the CIA by assassinating foreign journalists and making the killings look like the agency’s work. Steve Vail – the CIA’s most skilled and rebellious operative – is called back from retirement to clear the agency’s name. Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight) stars as Vail with Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries) as FBI Deputy Kate Bannon.

 

Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken

Available from Friday 9 February in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert PG

How would you feel if you learnt that you came from a fabled royal family of legendary sea krakens? For sweet and awkward 16-year-old Ruby Gillman – a kraken herself – it’s a life-changing discovery. Not only does it mean Ruby (voiced by Lara Condor, Moonshot) stands to inherit the throne from her grandmother – Warrior Queen of the Seven Seas (Hollywood grand dame Jane Fonda) – she must also protect the world’s oceans from the vain, power-hungry mermaids. Mixing an A-list voice cast with tip-top animation, this new Dreamworks coming-of-age tale is a must-watch for the whole family.

 

Hypnotic

Available from Saturday 10 February in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15

Detective Danny Rourke (Ben Affleck, Gone Girl) is searching for his kidnapped daughter but finds himself spiralling down a rabbit hole while investigating a series of mysterious crimes. What does his daughter’s disappearance have to do with a bank heist? And who are the “hypnotics” who can bend reality to get people to do whatever they want? With a strong supporting cast including Alice Braga (The Suicide Squad) and JD Pardo (The Contractor) and a brilliant central performance from Affleck, this new, mind-bending thriller will keep you guessing until the very end.

 

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One

Available from Friday 16 February in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 12

The latest instalment of the award-winning supercharged spy film series lands on Sky Cinema, and it’s another star-studded offering with all the awe-inspiring action and jaw-dropping stunt sequences of its predecessors. Once again, Tom Cruise is daredevil field agent Ethan Hunt who, with his trusty and trusted team, is tasked with tracking down a terrifying new weapon before it falls into the wrong hands and destroys the world. Cue a deadly race around the globe and a breathtaking cinematic experience that only a Cruise film can deliver. Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson and Vanessa Kirby return to the series, with Hayley Atwell (Avengers: Endgame) joining the cast.

 

Dangerous Waters

Available from Saturday 17 February in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15

Starring the late Ray Liotta (Goodfellas) in his final film, this is a tightly wound survival thriller that will put you off going in the water, or certainly fearful of ever saying “yes” to a sailing holiday. When Rose (Odeya Rush, Lady Bird) and her mum Alma (Saffron Burrows, Deep Blue Sea) are whisked away on a boating adventure to Bermuda by Alma’s new boyfriend, it seems their tough lives have taken a turn for the better. But as you can tell from the title, it’s not the relaxing holiday they had hoped for. When their boat is savagely attacked, it’s a battle for survival.

 

Asteroid City

Available from Friday 23 February in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 12

Drumroll, please, for the latest Wes Anderson cinematic sensation – and we don’t mean another Instagram video your mate posted in the director’s style. This is the real deal, and not only does it offer a roll call of Hollywood greats, from Tom Hanks and Scarlett Johansson to Jason Schwartzman and Edward Norton, but it has all the quirk and stylised panache we’ve come to expect from the director of The Royal Tenenbaums and The Grand Budapest Hotel. A play within a play, the story centres on a youth astronomy convention held in a space-obsessed 1950s desert town (the Asteroid City of the title), as attendees deal with grief, love and an unexpected visitor. Beautiful backdrops, fantastically eccentric characters and a good dose of whimsy, this is one not to be missed.

 

Knights Of The Zodiac

Available from Saturday 24 February in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert TBA

Knights Of The Zodiac is based on the hugely popular Japanese manga series Saint Seiya, which has sold more than 50 million copies worldwide and has been adapted into an anime TV series. This film brings the saga into live action for the first time. Seiya (Mackenyu, Pacific Rim: Uprising) fights for money while searching for his abducted sister. When he discovers a mystical power he never knew he had, he’s thrust into a world of saints and reincarnated goddess who need his protection. But can he embrace his destiny to take his place among the Knights of the Zodiac?

 

Red Right Hand

Available from February in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert TBA

While “Red Right Hand” might be most notable as a song by Nick Cave, the expression’s origin lies in John Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost and refers to divine vengeance. It’s the perfect title for this action thriller starring Orlando Bloom (Carnival Row) and Andie MacDowell (Maid). Bloom plays a man trying to escape his dishonest past in a small town when a vicious crime boss forces him back into her services to pay off his debts. But the life he’s built is worth fighting for. Soon, he’s drawn into a nightmare that blurs the lines between good and evil.
