1. Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse

Watch at Now TV

This bold, fresh and insanely watchable new take on Spider-Man brings the Miles Morales Spider-Man from the comics to the screen, along with fan favourite Spider Gwen and plenty of new characters too. Featuring voice performances from a great and diverse cast, including Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali, Brian Tyree Henry and many more, this movie is funny, moving and absolutely breathtakingly beautiful in equal measures. A great watch for all the family.

2. Toy Story 4

Watch at Now TV

Toy Story 4 shouldn't really exist - the ending to Toy Story 3 is perfect. So we were filled with dread at the thought of this movie coming along and upsetting what is a stellar set of films. Luckily, Toy Story 4 is a little gem of a movie, managing to find a way into the Toy Story universe once more and offering up a fairly standalone story that is part adventure, part horror, all fun. It isn't the best Toy Story but we are so glad that it is here - something we never thought we would say!

3. Bohemian Rhapsody

Watch at Now TV

This hit biopic is all about the ups and downs of rock band Queen and the band's late frontman Freddie Mercury. Starring Rami Malek as Mercury, the film won four Academy Awards and was nominated for others. But it wasn't just a hit with award's judges, this is a must-watch film, especially if you're already a fan of Queen.

4. BlacKkKlansman

Watch at Now TV

The outrageous story told in Spike Lee’s 2018 crime movie BlacKkKlansman has to be seen to be believed. And, amazingly, it’s true: it’s based on a 2014 memoir by Ron Stallworth, a 1970s African-American police detective who worked to infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan.

The real Ron Stallworth has revealed he originally wanted Denzel Washington to play him, but laughed when he found out that John David Washington had landed the lead role instead – the actor is Denzel’s real-life son.

5. The Lion King

Watch at Now TV

This kind-of live adaptation (it's CGI) of the classic cartoon doesn't quite capture the majesty of the original but this is a breathtaking piece of cinema. An all-star voice cast propels the movie along with Donald Glover, Seth Rogen and Beyoncé starring. It's not perfect, but it's fantastic for both kids and young-at-heart adults

6. Avengers: Endgame

Watch at Now TV

The final instalment in the current crop of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies is here. It's a fun, heart-breaking and fist-pumping finale that ties up most of the loose ends and shows what really happens to Thanos in the end. It might not please everyone (it's always hard to bring such loved movies and characters to a close), but it's one hell of a fun watch.

7. 2001: A Space Odyssey

Watch at Now TV

You've probably seem 2001: A Space Odyssey before. And if you haven't you've probably seen a couple of the most iconic scenes. But Stanley Kubrick's 1968 science-fiction masterpiece is really worth a re-watch. It's all-encompassing, charting advancements in civilisations over millennia and culminates in a bizarre and mind-bending space adventure.

Watch at Now TV

Based on the DC comics character Shazam, this 2019 movie was a hit at the box office and is a refreshing superhero film about Billy Batson, who is chosen by the ancient wizard Shazam as his new champion.

9. A Star Is Born

Watch at Now TV

Forget everything you think you know about Lady Gaha as this movie will show her in a completely different light. This is an absolutely star turn for her, in a movie about how a normal person with an extraordinary talent can become a star. Bradley Cooper directs and stars, and the chemistry between the pair is sensational. This is an absolute must watch.

10. Psycho

Watch at Now TV

Classic psychological thriller Psycho is now available to watch on Now TV. It's a movie classic and for good reason. Hitchcock amps up the tension, terror and creepiness without even showing us any actual violence. It's a must-watch for film-lovers or those who need a twist to their horror rather than all out gore.

11. Captain Marvel

Watch at Now TV

It's finally here: a Marvel superhero movie with a woman in the lead role. And wow, Captain Marvel does not disappoint. This is the story of Carol Danvers (played by Brie Larson) who is somehow one of the most powerful beings in the universe. Watch this fist-pumping movie to find out her story, her secrets and where she's headed to next. This is a must-watch if you're a fan of the MCU.

12. Instant Family

Watch at Now TV

We went in expecting this to another throwaway slapstick farce but there's genuine heart in Instant Family, a movie about a couple fostering for the first time. Yes, there are laugh but there's also a serious amount of pain and sorrow shown here as Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne come to terms with the fact that fostering kids who have been through the system is much tougher than they think.

13. Venom

Watch at Now TV

If you're a Spiderman comics fan, or watched the animated show as a kid, you'll be familiar with Venom. For those not as clued up on the backstory, it's about a journalist called Eddie Brock (played by Tom Hardy) who encounters a weird alien substance and becomes Venom, a mixture of Eddie and the alien stuff. It gives him superhuman strength and power.

Written and directed by Jordan Peele, this deeply unsettling horror movie is a must-watch if you like edge-of-your-seat scares with a great underlying story to boot. It's hard to tell you much about Us without immediately giving away important details, but let's just say it's a tale about doppelgangers and leave it at that! It's one of the best horror movies in recent years, which isn't a surprise given Peele was the great mind behind Get Out.

15. Men in Black

Watch now on Now TV

Sometimes the best movie binges feature films you've seen hundreds of times, which is why we've added Men in Black to our list of the best movies on Now TV. This fun and laugh-out-loud sci-fi comedy isn't just a safe family watch, but does have a stand-out cast, including Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Rip Torn and Vincent D'Onofrio as a huge bug.

16. Rocketman

Stream now on Now TV

This epic biographical musical is a must-watch for Elton John fans. Based on the life of the super famous musician (played by Taron Egerton), it focuses mostly on his early days in England at the Royal Academy of Music and then looks at his time working with Bernie Taupin (Jamie Bell). It's a fantastic movie, which is why it's no surprise it picked up a bunch of awards when it was launched last year.

17. Ghostbusters

Watch now on Now TV

If you need a dose of feel-good nostalgia during your weekend movie binge, then Now TV has plenty to offer. Including everyone's favourite supernatural-fighting team: Ghostbusters. It's one of the most-loved blockbusters of the 80s and for good reason.

18. Solo: A Star Wars Story

Watch at NOW TV

Although this movie didn't do as well as expected at the box office, it's a great watch for any fans of Han Solo and his backstory. Harrison Ford may not have been able to reprise his role and play his younger self, but Alden Ehrenreich does an absolutely fantastic job as young Han, just as Donald Glover plays a mesmerising young Lando Calrissian.

19. The Favourite

Watch on NOW TV now

Olivia Coleman is sensational in The Favourite, playing Queen Anne who has two aides who are vying to be her 'favourite'. It's a great tale of sex and backstabbing, love and betrayal - all shot through the unusual eye of director Yorgos Lanthimos.

20. Crazy Rich Asians

Watch at Now TV

Nothing will make you want to go to Singapore, or just be really, ridiculously, filthy rich, more than Crazy Rich Asians. The rom-com is a feast for the senses and the feel-good hit of last summer. Two more sequels are set to be filmed back-to-back next year.

Incredibly, this huge blockbuster was also romantic lead Henry Golding’s first ever film role. Before this, the English-Malaysian star was a presenter for BBC’s The Travel Show.
