Even More Movies to Watch in December 2016: On Demand With ScreenCrush
If you’ve a lot of time off over the holidays, that can be a blessing and a curse. You finally have the chance to catch up on some movies! But what the heck do you watch? That’s where our new series, On Demand With ScreenCrush, comes in. Every two weeks, ScreenCrush Editor-in-Chief Matt Singer joins you to recommend three handpicked new titles you can watch at home right now from Movies on Demand. These are big new releases you won’t find streaming on Netflix, and the choices run the gamut from indie favorites, to major blockbusters, to insightful documentaries, and everything in between — all available with your remote.
In our twelfth installment, we’re diving into awards season with three of 2016’s big contenders. Tom Hanks looks like a shoo-in for his sixth Oscar nomination for his work as the title character in Sully, based on the exploits of the heroic airline pilot. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Oliver Stone team up for Snowden, about one of the most controversial figures of our time. And British filmmaker Andrea Arnold chronicles the perils of youth (and Shia LaBeouf’s rat-tail) in the gorgeous coming-of-age movie American Honey. No matter what kind of movie you want, you’ll find it on demand.
On Demand With ScreenCrush is a brand new original series about the world of movies. This is our twelfth episode, but we’ll be back with a new show in two weeks. Plus, we want your feedback.
