Available to rent from June 3rd on Virgin Movies from €4.99


A remarkable true story provides the inspiration for this darkly comic drama – but it’s the spectacular performances from Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant that really make it sing. A sharp script, delicate direction, and a story that has drama and humanity in equal measure makes for a movie entirely deserving of the attention it garnered during award season.






Available to rent from June 10th on Virgin Movies from €4.99


It’s the final instalment of the epic animated trilogy – and it caps things off in some style! The winning combination of dazzling visuals and an impressively deep story are both present and correct, culminating in the sort of emotional ending that might take a few grown-ups by surprise when the tears start coming!






Available to rent from June 17th on Virgin Movies from €4.99


Joel Edgerton writes, directs, and stars in this film – doing so much that we wouldn’t be entirely shocked if he calls round and makes you a cuppa while you watch it! An adaptation of the bestselling book, it’s a powerful and affecting tale of a young gay boy growing up in Bible country; the levels of nuance, coupled with outstanding performances, lend an air of reali sm and relevance to make it a movie that will stick in your mind…






Available to rent from June 17th on Virgin Movies from €4.99


Take a billionaire’s daughter aiming to take some a major crime organisation, a team of professional assassins, and what do you get? Fireworks, that’s what!! Thankfully, this all-action martial arts masterpiece delivers by the bucketload; as high-octane as it is high-kicking, the decision to eschew some Hollywood heavyweights in favour of real hardmen certainly paid off!






Available to rent from June 24th on Virgin Movies from €4.99


The superb slasher film gets the sequel treatment – and it’s as fresh and funny as its predecessor! There’s scares and screams aplenty, of course, but also loads of laughs and some laudable action too; there’s even a pronounced sci-fi twist to it, if there wasn’t enough jammed into two of the most fun hours of film you’ll see this month!






Available to rent from June 24th on Virgin Movies from €4.99


Shooting straight in at the top of the family favourite ladder is this awesome adventure, which takes its lead from the legend of King Arthur; a young boy finds himself on an epic adventure after finding Excalibur! It’s warm and witty, and unabashedly aimed at a younger audience; the delight, though, is unlikely to escape the attention of parents either!
