Here’s everything coming to Sky Cinema this month…
Sky Cinema grabs a lot of the bigger blockbusters, but often promotes smaller movies that have gained a nice little following, so we’re keeping track of all the new films that are hitting the service in the coming month.
In December, there are Star Wars films aplenty, and more musicals than you can shake a stick at. A little indie movie called Avengers: Endgame will also arrive (never heard of it).
As always, quite a few of the films in the lineup will also be available via NOW TV, but here’s an official look at what’s coming to Sky Cinema in December…

Sony made a mint off this microbudgeted horror, and here’s your chance to see what all the fuss was about. A sequel is already on the way…

A grown up Michael and Jane reconnect with Mary Poppins at a tumultuous time in their lives. Magic ensues.
