All of the cosy Christmas movies coming to Sky this festive season

The Christmas season is probably one of our most favourite times of the year. We love all of the festive decorations, the fairy lights, the Christmas cheer, and the abundance of delicious treats we get to devour all season long.

However, there truly is nothing better than settling down in front of the tree with a steaming  cup of hot chocolate, a freshly opened tin of roses on hand, and a cosy Christmas movie on the telly.

That's why we were so excited to hear about all of the wonderful Christmas movies coming to Sky just in time for the festive season.

There is plenty to choose from with a rich catalogue of movies, ranging from classics like It’s a Wonderful Life, Die Hard, Elf and Love Actually, as well as animated films such as The Polar Express and Frozen 2.


A movie full of Yuletide cheer, Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa's elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he does not fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father.

Last Christmas

Nothing seems to go right for young Kate (Emilia Clarke), a frustrated Londoner who works as an elf in a year-round Christmas shop. But things soon take a turn for the better when she meets Tom (Henry Golding) – a handsome charmer who seems too good to be true.

Die Hard

John McTiernan's towering action inferno pits Bruce Willis' New York cop John McClane (Bruce Willis) against sneering villain Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) and his Euro-terrorists in an LA skyscraper. With little help from the authorities outside and his estranged wife (Bonnie Bedelia) among the hostages on the inside, McClane has a mountain of problems to climb… in his bare feet. Yippee-ki-aye.

The Polar Express

When a doubting young boy takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery that shows him that the wonder of life never fades for those who believe.

Love Actually

Blessed with more stars than a clear night in the Arctic, comedy writer Richard Curtis completes the romantic hat-trick that began with Four Weddings and Notting Hill. A mostly London-based collection of loosely interweaving vignettes, it gathers together lonely hearts from all over the capital.

Frozen 2

The enchanting story follows Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven, on a journey beyond the realm of Arendelle to discover the origin of Elsa's magical powers after a mysterious voice calls out to her threatening the safety of her kingdom.

It's a Wonderful Life

Businessman George Bailey (James Stewart) is on the brink of suicide when an angel gives him a glimpse of what the world would have been like without him, in this much-loved Christmas classic from Frank Capra

Black Christmas

Hawthorne College is quieting down for the holidays as students travel home to spend time with their families. But as Riley and her sorority sisters prepare to deck the halls with seasonal parties, a mysterious cloaked figure starts to leave a bloody trail throughout the campus.

The Holiday

Unlucky in love and desperate for a break, London journalist Iris (Kate Winslet) and LA-based Amanda (Cameron Diaz) swap homes for Christmas. The idea is to avoid men, but as Iris strikes a chord with Hollywood composer Miles (Jack Black), her brother Graham (Jude Law) introduces Amanda to the charms of the Cotswolds.
