Best Movies On NOW TV
1. Avengers: Infinity WarWatch at Now TV
Not over Avengers: Infinity War Part 2? Us neither. Relive the epic first half to the Marvel conclusion and get ready to have an even bigger I’m-not-crying-I-must-be-allergic-to-dust-reaction than ever before.
If you’re rewatching, look out for the hilarious hidden Easter Eggs hidden along the way: Anthony and Joe Russo got one of their first big gigs directing Arrested Development, and if you keep your eyes peeled, you’ll spy a blue Tobias Fünke in The Collector's display cases. He’s even wearing denim shorts.
2. Spider-Man: Into the SpiderverseWatch 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.
3. A Quiet PlaceWatch at Now TV
Not only is A Quiet Place the best horror film of last year, it’s one of the best horror films of the decade. It’s set in a post-apocalyptic world where dangerous blind aliens with super-sensitive hearing hunt you down if you make a sound.
For a film set in a deadly silent world, its no small feat that it won the Academy Award for Best Sound Editing last year. The film’s stars (and real-life husband and wife) John Krasinski and Emily Blunt will return for a sequel in 2020.
4. Bohemian RhapsodyWatch 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.
5. CocoWatch at Now TV
A warning: you will cry during Coco. But pop some tissues in your pocket and enjoy the gorgeous ride to the land of the dead anyway. The Disney Pixar animation about the Mexican Day Of The Dead may feature a load of skeletons, but it sure is life-affirming.
Coco is so touching that even though it contains themes that would usually be banned in China, the Chinese censor board was apparently so moved by the film’s warmth it released it in cinemas anyway.
6. How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden WorldWatch at Now TV
Loosely based on the book series of the same name by Cressida Cowell, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is the final movie in the How To Train Your Dragon trilogy. It follows in the same vein as the other movies, so it's about a boy called Hiccup and his dragon, called Toothless. The Hidden World refers to a dragon utopia that Hiccup and Toothless are on a mission to find.
7. VenomWatch 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.
8. Captain MarvelWatch 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.
9. Solo: A Star Wars StoryWatch 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.
10. DumboWatch at Now TV
Tim Burton had a go at remaking the classic 1941 animated Disney movie Dumbo and it's a really fun watch – despite the fact it didn't do too well at the box office. There's an all star cast, including Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green and Alan Arkin. As you'd expect, it's about a big-eared elephant called Dumbo, with more of a focus on the family who finds him at a travelling circus than in the original version.
11. The Shape of WaterWatch at NOW TV
This beautiful movie from highly-acclaimed director Guilllermo Del Toro is a Cold War thriller, fantasy tale and love story rolled into one. It's about a woman called Elisa who meets a half-man, half-fish hybrid who was found in South America and has since been held in a top-secret government lab.
12. BlacKkKlansmanWatch 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.
13. Crazy Rich AsiansWatch 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.
14. Love, SimonWatch at Now TV
Love, Simon has been praised by audiences and critics alike for its sensitive portrayal of a gay teen finding himself, and the journey he goes on to come out to his friends and family in the process.
It’s also a really funny and sweet classic teen movie. The group of pals in the film, led by Nick Robinson and Katherine Langford, feel so natural in part because the film’s director actually kept the camera rolling to get footage of the actors when they weren’t acting.
15. First ManWatch at Now TV
Based on the book First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong by James R. Hansen, this is the story of Neil Armstrong in the years leading up to the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon in 1969. Ryan Gosling plays Armstrong and it's hard to take your eyes off his incredible performance throughout. This is a real crowd-pleaser movie because it's based on true events, covers from ups and downs of space travel and is a tear-jerking drama and its core too.
