On offer is a delightful mix of Oscar winners, heavyweights like Spielberg and Tarantino plus Swedish films that have charmed audiences and critics alike.
C More provides a little description of some of the premiering films:
Survival skills are put to the test in both The Martian as in The Revenant. Leonardo Di Caprio won an Oscar for his role in The Revenant where his character Hugh during an expedition to the unexplored American wilderness is attacked by a bear and left to die by the others in his squad.
In the Oscar nominated film The Martian, Matt Damon is alone stranded on Mars. His ingenuity, intelligence and strength are tested as he tries to make it home alive. Space is also the focus of Interstellar where Matthew McConaughey is part of a research team that through a wormhole embarks himself on an interstellar space mission to save humanity.
Another Oscar film is the drama The Theory of Everything, where Eddie Redmayne makes an Oscar-winning performance in the role of Stephen Hawkins. This autumn on C More you will even find The Hateful Eight and Bridge of Spies from star directors Quentin Tarantino and Steven Spielberg.
