Heineken Cup rugby: Cardiff Blues v Toulon

Saturday 19th September, 1:00pm
Sky Sports 2, NOW TV

 

Jonny Wilkinson fired a warning shot to his European rivals this week by declaring that Toulon could win every one of their Heineken Cup games on the way to defending their title. With the form Toulon are in it’s certainly possible. But the Cardiff Blues won’t roll over without a fight, despite their form being far less impressive than their French rivals. A thumb injury means Wilkinson’s inclusion is in doubt, which might just help the dwindling Blues.

 

Live NFL: Cincinnati Bengals @ Detroit Lions

Sunday 20th October, 5:30pm
Sky Sports 2, NOW TV

 

The Cincinnati Bengals have got their season off to a flying start, which sees them somewhere you wouldn’t expect, let alone themselves. There they are at the top of the AFC North standings for the first time since 2009, when they went on to win the season. They’ve earned that high morale then, but they are only six weeks in to the season after all and it can all change. Just ask this week’s rivals, the Detroit Lions.

Les Miserables

Available Friday 18th October
Sky Movies, NOW TV

 

Victor Hugo’s 150-year-old tale of a morally scrupulous ex-convict who takes the daughter of a fallen woman as his own is turned into scintillating screen music by The King’s Speech director Tom Hooper. Hugh Jackman plays Jean Valjean, the former prisoner who breaks parole to live a life of selfless decency while being hunted for decades by ruthless policeman Javert (Russell Crowe). An impressive cinematic celebration of the classic tale of justice and redemption.

 

So Undercover

Available Friday 18th October
Sky Movies, NOW TV

 

Just before Miley Cyrus underwent a rebellious makeover she made this film. There’s not a single twerk or tongue poke in sight, and sees her in a slightly more sane form. She’s certainly wearing more clothes anyway and let’s not forget that acting is where Cyrus made her name. As a private investigator hired by the FBI, Miley enters the teenage world on a mission. It’s no Mean Girls, that’s for sure, but it is easy watching.

 

Hide Away

Available now
Sky Movies, NOW TV

 

Too often small films are lost behind the big-budget, Hollywood-blockbuster releases. But luckily Hide Away has emerged and is now available on NOW TV to be enjoyed by the masses, just as it deserves. There’s an air of mystery to the unnamed lead character, a businessman looking to escape his life, who buys a rundown sailing boat. There’s little dialogue as the estranged businessman sets about the repairs, which only makes this film more intriguing, as he interacts with the residents of his new village.
