Sony Movies Christmas has launched! Here are the best films to watch
Summer is over, which means it’s time to start getting festive.
Sony Movies Christmas launches today (September 24), so we can start getting our festive fix early this year. A new season of Christmas classics awaits on the dedicated Christmas film channel, located on Freeview 50, Sky 319, Virgin 424 and Freesat 303.
It may only be September, but after the year we’ve had, we deserve a little cheer. Here are our top Sony Movies Christmas highlights to get the holiday spirit pumping.
1. A Beauty and the Beast Christmas
A Christmas love story for the new generation tells the story of Ginger Holiday, a Christmas social media influencer who loses her sparkle after damaging her face in an accident. Could a fake relationship with infamous bad boy Beau Bradley to boost her public profile be the answer?
2. The Christmas Contract
If you can’t get enough of the fake relationship cheese, here’s another good dose of it. Web designer Jolie Guidry returns to her hometown in Louisiana for Christmas on a downer: her ex childhood sweetheart Foster Broussard will be there with his new partner, and she’ll be alone. That is, until Jolie’s best friend Naomi suggests hatching a daring plan to balance the playing field.
3. Battle of the Bulbs
We all have that neighbour who goes all out on the Christmas decorations every year, and this film is about them. Bob Wallace prides himself on his incredible festive display each Christmas, until one year he notices his new neighbour, Stu Jones, has put on an even bigger and better display. The fight is on.
4. Defending Santa
Small town sheriff Scott Hanson gets more than he bargained for on a Christmas Eve call out, when he discovers a sleeping Santa Claus in the woods. When Santa is put on trial to defend his identity, Hanson begins to fall for Santa’s court-appointed defence attorney, Sarah, as the whole town wonders what is real and what isn’t.
5. Dashing Through the Snow
Crafter Ashley Harrison is desperate to get home for Christmas, but when her prescheduled flight is cancelled at the last minute, she’s left with only one option: to share a rental car with the mysterious Dash Sutherland. It’s far from plain sailing though, with car troubles, secrets and the real reason Ashley’s flight was cancelled ahead of them.
6. Christmas All Over Again
A festive twist on Groundhog Day, Christmas All Over Again tells the story of spoilt and materialistic teenager Eddie, who is forced to repeatedly endure a Christmas Day without presents until he gets his priorities in order. Can the chain be broken, and can Eddie learn to be a better person?
