Guardian journalist and Girls On Film podcast host Anna Smith shares her Mega Movie Weekend Christmas recommendations

Mega Movie Weekend returns today for 72 hours, with a fantastic festive selection and some of this year’s biggest box office hits

The final Mega Movie Weekend of 2023 launches today (Friday, 15th to Sunday, 17th December) with incredible deals on films to download and keep that are perfect for the festive season!

Guardian journalist and Girl On Film podcast host, Anna Smith, has shared her recommendations for this month’s offering.

Anna Smith – Broadcaster, Film Critic & Host: Girls On Film Podcast said: “Christmas is a great chance to snuggle up on the sofa and watch movies, whether it’s cosy classics or new movies you’ve meant to catch up with. There’s something so comforting about re-watching and sharing a festive film with family. As a film critic, I consider it a fun challenge to pick out a cracker that groups of different ages will watch and enjoy. This year, I’ll recommend The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry for grandparents and parents – and putting Paddington on repeat for the kids in the family (OK, and for me).”

The campaign is running across six key retailers: Amazon Prime Video, EE TV Store, Google TV, Rakuten TV, Sky Store and Virgin Media Store. Prices start from £2.99*.

The incredible selection of titles includes:

  • The Super Mario Bros. Movie
  • Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse
  • Batman Returns
  • Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves
  • Christmas Gift for Bob
  • Silent Night
  • Paddington
  • The Retirement Plan
  • Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero
  • Arthur Christmas
  • And many more!

Mega Movie Weekend is managed by the British Association for Screen Entertainment (BASE) in association with major UK distributors Crunchyroll, Lionsgate, Paramount Pictures, Signature Entertainment, Sony Pictures, Spirit Entertainment, Studiocanal, Universal Pictures and Warner Bros. Discovery.

*Prices and titles may vary across retailers and those listed are only valid as part of this campaign across December 15th to 17th.
