Five top movie premieres coming to Sky Cinema in May

Monday, April 16th 2018 by Emma Woollacott

Sky Cinema, formerly Sky Movies, offers a new premiere every day - making it pretty impossible to see the lot.

Some are critically acclaimed box-office hits, but there are plenty of less well-known gems too. We take a look at five premieres set to hit your screens in the first half of next month that might be worth a couple of hours of your time.

After The Storm

Former writer Ryota (Hiroshi Abe) is working for a private detective agency. His wife Kyoko (Yoko Maki) has left him, and is threatening to not let him see their young son Shingo unless he pays child support.

When a typhoon forces all three to sleep over at Ryota's mother's home, the couple find they can finally move forward. After The Storm is available from Wednesday 2 May.


Available from Friday 4 May, this critically-acclaimed WWII movie was written, directed and produced by Christopher Nolan. It follows the story of how almost 340,000 Allied soldiers were evacuated from the beaches of Dunkirk using both military and civilian boats.

The story is told from three points of view - on the beach, at sea and in the air. Harry Styles plays a young squaddie, while Mark Rylance is a civilian determined to take his small yacht to Dunkirk to help, while Tom Hardy takes the role of a fighter pilot.

My Cousin Rachel

My Cousin Rachel, based on the 1951 book by Daphne du Maurier, is available from Sunday 6 May.

Young Englishman Philip, played by Sam Calflin, believes his beautiful and mysterious cousin Rachel (Rachel Weisz) is responsible for the murder of her husband Ambrose, Philip's guardian. However, when he actually meets her, his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under her spell.


This rather unusual Russian film, which is available from Wednesday 9 May, is set in a small seaside town and has a strong sense of place. Middle-aged Russian spinster Natasha (Natalia Pavlenkova) lives with her dominating mother and is picked on by her spiteful colleagues at the provincial zoo where she works.

However, one day something extraordinary happens: she grows a tail. And when she visits a hospital to find out what's happening to her, she meets handsome X-ray technician Petya (Dmitri Groshev), and a new world of possibilities opens up.

The Stolen

Wealthy English immigrant Charlotte Lockton, played by Alice Eve, arrives in 1860s New Zealand with her husband and young son. During a burglary, intruders shoot her partner and kidnap the child.

When she receives an anonymous note claiming he is still alive, she heads for a remote, frontier town to get him back, meeting ex-convicts, whores, hustlers and a Maori warrior along the way. The Stolen is available from Thursday 10 May.

How to get Sky Cinema

If you get Sky Entertainment, you can add Sky Cinema for an extra ten quid a month, and it's the same price through Sky's streaming service NOW TV. Sky Cinema is also available through Virgin Media and BT, though it'll cost you a bit more that way.
