Disney+ has just added 11 big movies just for the grown-ups

Rom-coms, spy thrillers and huge action blockbusters are all in the recent mix.

Some folk may think that Disney+ is still just a streaming service for those with kids, or for those that love Marvel and/or Star Wars.

However, thanks to the Star platform on the service, Disney+ is able to add content for mature audiences, and they've recently added 11 big movies that would be aimed solely for the adults watching at home.

A MONSTER CALLS

A young boy (Lewis MacDougall) is dealing with the trauma of his terminally ill mother (Felicity Jones) when he crosses paths with an ancient tree monster (voiced by Liam Neeson) who tries to help him cope. Also starring Sigourney Weaver and Tobey Kebbell, this movie will absolutely make you cry.

AMELIE

A woman (Audrey Tautou) travels around Paris secretly helping out in the lives of strangers, but has her own life turned upside down when she begins to fall in love with one of them. A truly heartwarming and visually eye-popping romantic drama.

ANOTHER YEAR

A happily married couple (played by Leslie Manville and Jim Broadbent) are visited by friends and family over the course of a year, each of them complaining with their own life problems, causing the couple to look at their own lives in a new light. A very good comedy-drama.

DAVID BRENT: LIFE ON THE ROAD

Ricky Gervais brings back his iconic character from The Office to show what he's up to now that he's (re)attempting to make a go of it as a musician. It... isn't very good.

HEADHUNTERS

One of the best international thrillers that we're constantly surprised Hollywood hasn't attempted to remake yet. An art thief (Aksel Hennie) steals a priceless painting from the worst person imaginable (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), an ex-mercenary with a bad temper.

I, ROBOT

A technophobic police detective (Will Smith) finds himself in the middle of a murder case, with a robot apparently the primary suspect. One of the smarter entries in the "Big Dumb But Still Fun Blockbusters" we used to get all the time in the mid-00s.

MISS YOU ALREADY

Another good movie guaranteed to make you cry. Milly (Toni Collette) and Jessy (Drew Barrymore) have their lifelong friendship turned upside down with Milly is diagnosed with breast cancer right as Jessy is about to begin a family.

OUR KIND OF TRAITOR

Based on a novel by John Le Carre, an unhappy couple (Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris) go on vacation to Morocco in an attempt to save their marriage. While there they cross paths with a man (Stellan Skarsgard) with ties to the mafia, and soon the couple find themselves caught up in his world. A decent enough espionage thriller.

SUITE FRANCAISE

Set against the backdrop of WWII, a lonely Frenchwoman (Michelle Williams) begins to find herself attracted to the German soldier (Matthias Schoenaerts) who lives in her house with her while her husband is away at war. Co-starring Margot Robbie, Kristin Scott Thomas and Sam Reilly, it is a very watchable romantic drama.

THE SWEENEY

The big screen remake of the much-loved 1970s cop show features Ray Winstone and Plan B investigating a series of armed robberies. To put it mildly, it is bad. To put it honestly, it is very bad.

WELCOME TO THE PUNCH

A former criminal (Mark Strong) teams up with a London detective (James McAvoy) in order to save the criminal's son and uncover a mass conspiracy. Looks cool, great performances, but overall it's only okay.
