Tis the season... to sit in on the couch because it is FREEZING outside and enjoy some fantastic movies and shows.

NOW has revealed its very impressive line-up of stuff to watch in December, so all of the below (and more besides!) will be available to stream with your NOW Cinema Membership and your NOW Entertainment Membership, starting with...

THE BATMAN

Arguably the best blockbuster of 2022, this dark and gritty adaptation of the nocturnal adventures of Bruce Wayne (played by Robert Pattinson) is stacked with an incredible cast - including Colin Farrell as The Penguin and Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle. There are also some immediately unforgettable set-pieces, and a new perspective into Gotham City that is likely to be absolutely stacked with clues as to the future of the entire franchise...

Stream from Friday, 2 December.

FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE SECRETS OF DUMBLEDORE

We didn't think anyone could follow up on Richard Harris and Michael Gambon's performances as the once-head of Hogwarts, but we gotta say, Jude Law absolutely nails it here. He's joined by Mads Mikkelsen and Eddie Redmayne in the latest adventure within the Wizarding World.

Doctor Foster star Suranne Jones headlines this modern retelling of Charles Dickens' classic. In this adaptation, we follow a successful businesswoman (Jones), who has been nicknamed Christmas Carole thanks to the success of her online business selling all things festive. However, it turns out that Carole actually hates Christmas! Maybe a trio of ghosts from her past, present and future can help put her back on the right track...

Stream from Saturday, 24 December.

ELF

Will Ferrell headlines one of the greatest Christmas movies ever made. If you've never seen it before, stop what you're doing and go watch it right now. And if you have seen it before... well, you know you're going to have to watch it again this December! Plus, NOW is the only streaming service in Ireland that you can watch it on! Merry Christmas!

THE BAD GUYS

While we might normally recommend movies like this as a "perfect distraction for the kids" over Christmas, we've got to be honest and say that there are just as many jokes in this animated caper for the grown-ups! Sam Rockwell, Marc Maron, Craig Robinson and loads more provide the voice work for a group of villainous animals who have to pretend to be good in order to pull off the ultimate heist.

Stream from Monday, 26 December.

All of these movies and shows will be available to stream with your NOW Cinema Membership and your NOW Entertainment Membership.
