Read on to find out more about these must-watch movies…


1. The Negotiator

Available to rent on Virgin Movies. Also available in HD. Cert 15

With tensions rising between Israel and Lebanon in the early 1980s, can veteran negotiator Mason Skiles (Jon Hamm) shake off his hangover and secure the release of a kidnapped CIA agent in the war-torn city of Beirut? Co-starring Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl), prepare to resist the urge to bite at your fingernails as this taut, tense and terrific thriller that’s currently in cinemas takes shape. Penned by Tony Gilroy – the writer behind the first four Bourne films – you’ll be on the edge of your sofa the whole way through.


2. A Quiet Place

Available to buy now on the Virgin Media Store or rent on Virgin Movies. Also available in HD. Cert 15

John Krasinski (13 Hours) co-writes, directs and stars in this innovative horror movie that reinvigorated the genre when it was released in cinemas earlier this year. Krasinski and real-life wife Emily Blunt (Sicario) head up a family in a post-apocalyptic world that live in silence to avoid attracting the attention of terrifying monsters with ultra-sensitive hearing. Filled with tension, claustrophobic thrills and eerie walls of silence, you won’t have seen – or heard – anything like this before.


3. The Senator

Available to rent on Virgin Movies. Also available in HD. Cert 12

In July 1969, US Senator Ted Kennedy was embroiled in a major scandal when the car he was driving crashed into a lake, killing passenger Mary Jo Kopechne. Starring Jason Clarke (Mudbound) as Kennedy, and featuring Kate Mara (House Of Cards), Ed Helms (The Hangover) and Bruce Dern (Nebraska), this powerful true-life drama takes a closer look at the consequences of the incident and its effect on the nation.


4. Thoroughbreds

Available to buy now on the Virgin Media Store or rent on Virgin Movies. Also available in HD. Cert 15

If it’s a deliciously devilish black comedy you’re after, this off-kilter caper ticks all the right boxes. Lily (Split’s Anya Taylor-Joy) and Amanda (Ready Player One’s Olivia Cooke) are two teenage friends in upper-class Connecticut who enlist the help of a small-time drug dealer (the late Anton Yelchin in his final film role) to bump off Lily’s oppressive stepfather. Does their macabre plan go off without a hitch? Let’s just say that contract killing isn’t all it’s cracked up to be…
