SPECTRE, Everest, Ant-Man and more box office smashes are coming to SKY MOVIES this July!
SPECTRE leads a blockbuster month of film this July on Sky Movies.
Subscribers to the service will be able to enjoy what is likely to be Daniel Craig’s final outing as 007, when it becomes available later next month.
Fans of the old-school tradition will have an absolute ball as Daniel Craig returns for his fourth (and perhaps final) outing as James Bond, this time on the trail of a tentacular terror network run by Christoph Waltz’s cat-loving mega-villain. Of course there’s plenty of globetrotting and bed-hopping to do along the way, Monica Bellucci coming and going before JB jets off to the likes of Austria and Tangier with main squeeze Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux)
SPECTRE is just one of several huge new movies available on the service, which is available via Sky or NOW TV. Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is also joining the channel. Christopher McQuarrie takes over directing duties for this latest instalment of the globe-trotting spy series and he gives it both barrels, serving up a series of exhilarating action set-pieces. The plot which facilitates them involves the indestructible Ethan Hunt (Cruise) squaring off against The Syndicate, a sinister organisation made up of agents lured to the dark side. Simon Pegg provides his usual dose of comic relief as hapless sidekick Benji, while the impressive cast also includes Jeremy Renner and Alec Baldwin.
Jason Clarke leads an impressive ensemble cast in true-life disaster thriller, Everest. His unenviable job is to safely escort thrill-seeking tourists to the top of the world’s tallest peak and it isn’t getting any easier. Rival tour companies keep springing up, base camp is an overcrowded mess and there’s little you can do when the elements decide not to play ball.
Skeletons come tumbling out of the closet in Guillermo del Toro’s sumptuous Gothic horror, The Crimson. The excellent Mia Wasikowska stars as the headstrong Edith Cushing (hello Hammer horror fans), an aspiring writer swept away to the creaking Lake District mansion of dashing Brit baronet Sir Thomas Sharpe (Hiddleston). His ice queen sister (Chastain) keeps half the house under lock and key and before long our Edith starts questioning what exactly she’s got herself into.
Marvel’s subatomic romp Ant-Man sees Paul Rudd save the day by shrinking to the size of an ant. The Anchorman star plays Scott Lang, a nice-guy thief who inadvertently lifts some kind of supersuit and winds up being recruited by its genius inventor Hank Pym (Douglas). It turns out there’s a terrifying future in store if nobody stops the dastardly plans of Hank’s former protégé (Stoll) and Sco
Also available from July are horror movie The Crimson, and hit animated comedy Minions. If that’s not enough, Sky Movies celebrates the release of Star Trek Beyond with an entire channel dedicated to Gene Roddenberry’s classic sci-fi creation. From 18-29 July, Sky Movies Greats becomes Sky Movies Star Trek and fans will be able to catch all ten of the original films – from the first big-screen outing in 1979 to 2002’s Nemesis. Cult documentaries Trekkies and Trekkies 2 will also be available to watch on demand, while the first two instalments of JJ Abrams’ blockbuster reimagining will be on Sky Store.
