5 must-see shows and movies streaming on NOW in December

Presented by NOW

Including some VERY big arrivals on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Saint Stephen’s Day!

It’s the time of year… to sit on the couch because it’s FROZEN outside and enjoy some amazing movies and shows.

NOW has announced its very impressive lineup of stuff to watch in December, so all of the below (and more!) will be available to stream with your NOW Cinema membership and your NOW Entertainment membership, starting with…


Arguably the best blockbuster of 2022, this dark and somber adaptation of the nocturnal adventures of Bruce Wayne (played by Robert Pattinson) is packed with an incredible cast – including Colin Farrell as The Penguin and Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle. There are also some instantly memorable set pieces and a new perspective on Gotham City that is likely absolutely peppered with clues to the future of the franchise as a whole…

Stream Friday, December 2nd.


We didn’t think anyone would be able to follow the performances of Richard Harris and Michael Gambon as the former Heads of Hogwarts, but we have to say Jude Law absolutely nailed it here. He is joined by Mads Mikkelsen and Eddie Redmayne in the latest adventure in the wizarding world.

The Secrets of Dumbledore will join all eight Harry Potter films and the first two Fantastic Beasts films in the NOW Cinema library!

Stream beginning Sunday, December 25th.


Doctor Foster star Suranne Jones directs this modern retelling of the Charles Dickens classic. In this adaptation, we follow a successful businesswoman (Jones) who is nicknamed Christmas Carole thanks to the success of her online business that sells all things festive. However, it turns out that Carole actually hates Christmas! Perhaps a trio of ghosts from her past, present and future can help her get back on track…

Stream beginning Saturday, December 24th.


Will Ferrell is one of the greatest Christmas movies of all time. If you’ve never seen it before, stop what you’re doing and watch it now. And if you’ve seen it before… well, you know you need to see it again this December! Also, NOW is the only streaming service in Ireland where you can watch it! Merry Christmas!

While we would normally recommend movies like this as the “perfect diversion for the kids” over Christmas, we have to be honest and say that there are just as many jokes in this animated prank for the grown-ups! Sam Rockwell, Marc Maron, Craig Robinson and more provide the voice work for a group of villainous animals who must pretend to be good in order to pull off the ultimate heist.

Stream Monday, December 26th.

All of these movies and shows can be streamed with your NOW Cinema membership and your NOW Entertainment membership.
