Really, this one’s all about Pig isn’t it? The film in which Nicolas Cage plays a chef who embarks on a mission to retrieve his kidnapped best friend – a truffle-foraging pig. If you don’t want to watch that at least twice in January, then you may be beyond help. Other than that, Sky Cinema in the UK is offering the sequel to acclaimed horror A Quiet Place, which stars Cillian Murphy this time around, as well as videogame adaptation Monster Hunter (which didn’t do much to impress our reviewer back in December 2020, but who knows, it might be just the thing after a long day. A veeeeeeeery long day).
Other than those three, check out what’s coming to Sky Cinema this month below.
