It’s an annual conundrum - how do you fill the gap between Christmas and New Year? Let’s be honest, as delicious as they are there are only so many turkey sandwiches a person can eat, and you don’t want to party yourself out before the big night on the 31st.

Well worry your mulled wine-muddled brain no longer, because NOW TV is here with a selection box of gems to tide you over into 2020!

Calculating results

Fancy filling your eyes as much as you filled your stomach this past week? There’s plenty more where that came from to get stuck into…


Crazy Rich Asians

If you want Over The Top (in capital letters) romantic extravaganza you have come to the right place. Namely Singapore, where the life of Chinese-American economics professor Rachel is about to get truly crazy, in the form of a secretly minted boyfriend Nick. It’s vibrant, full-tilt, and joyfully lacking in subtlety.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is more than just an excuse to sit in front of your TV belting out all of Abba’s greatest hits, but even if it wasn’t that sounds pretty damn brilliant, right? It’s both a prequel and a sequel to the first movie, jumping back and forth between the late ‘70s and the modern day. How could it ever improve on the original? Simple - just add Cher!

Mary Poppins Returns

One of those movies where even the title makes you let out a big old whoooooop! Yes, Mary Poppins is back, and fear not, protectors of childhoods, it is every bit as magical as the beloved original. Emily Blunt stars as Mary Poppins, whilst Lin-Manuel Miranda is delightful as cockney lamplighter Jack - Bert’s apprentice from the first movie. Spend the days waiting for New Year feeling like an eight-year-old again.

Forrest Gump

Let’s be honest, after all those mince pies and roast potatoes we could all do with a little exercise, and what better motivation than Forrest? This beautiful story will make you laugh, cry and go out and buy a brand new pair of trainers in the sales - that’s the power of Tom Hanks for you.

Are we really to fall totally butt crazy in love with this 1995 rom-com classic again? You betcha. And if you’ve never seen it before we’ve got one thing to say to you: ugh, as if! Clueless may just be the greatest teen movie of all time, and it’s also concrete proof of a fact we all now know - Paul Rudd simply does not age. Witchcraft!
