Cry Macho

Cry Macho stars Clint Eastwood as Mike Milo, a one-time rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder who, in 1979, takes a job from an ex-boss to bring the man’s young son home from Mexico. 

Forced to take the backroads on their way to Texas, the unlikely pair face an unexpectedly challenging journey, during which the world-weary horseman finds unlikely connections and his own sense of redemption.

Stream Cry Macho on Sky Cinema with NOW from Saturday 30 July.

Jackass Forever

The original Jackass crew return for another round of hilarious, wildly absurd, and often dangerous displays of comedy with a little help from an exciting new cast.  

Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Wee Man and the team push the envelope even further in Jackass Forever.

Stream Jackass Forever on Sky Cinema with NOW from Friday 12 August.

New kids and family films on Sky Cinema in August

Sing 2

Sing 2, the sequel to the 2016 family animated flick, follows can-do koala Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey) and his all-star cast of animal performers as they prepare to launch their most dazzling stage extravaganza yet - in the glittering entertainment capital of the world. 

There’s just one hitch: They first have to persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star - played by legendary music icon Bono, making his animated film debut - to join them.

Stream Sing 2 on Sky Cinema with NOW from Friday 26 August.
