The Witches — Available from 5 March
In February, Sky debuted the Roald Dahl biopic To Olivia and, to follow that up, they're unveiling the latest adaptation of one of the legendary author's most memorable works. It has been available on premium video-on-demand since October, but now it's available free to Sky or NOW TV subscribers.
Directed by Robert Zemeckis, The Witches follows a sinister plot mounted by Anne Hathaway's gloriously over-cranked Grand High Witch to turn all of the world's children into mice. The book was previously adapted for the screen by Nic Roeg in the 1990s, but this new version moves the action to 1960s America and casts Octavia Spencer, Stanley Tucci and Chris Rock among its supporting ensemble.
The Glorias — Available from 7 March
Gloria Steinem is one of America's most significant and famous feminist thinkers. This innovative biopic picks her up at four different stages of her life, with Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander, Lulu Wilson and Ryan Kiera Armstrong all taking their turn at portraying the icon. Bette Midler and Janelle Monáe are also among the enviable cast list. The movie debuted in the USA to solid reviews last year and is now arriving on British shores as a Sky Original.

SAS: Red Notice — Available from 12 March
This British thriller is based on a novel by acclaimed soldier-turned-author Andy McNab and focuses on a former Special Forces operative who fights back against a plot to blow up the Channel Tunnel. Sam Heughan — who is being talked about as a potential future James Bond — will play the operative, with Ruby Rose, Andy Serkis, Noel Clarke and Hannah John-Kamen also involved.
Poms — Available from 14 March
Movies about older women finding ways to enjoy life anew are often very entertaining, with the recent Book Club finding plenty of laughs with a tale of a group of women exploring the world of Fifty Shades of Grey. That movie shares a cast member with new comedy Poms, in the shape of Diane Keaton. She's one of several women living in a retirement community, who decide to put together a cheerleading squad. Jacki Weaver — the actor rather than the internet-famous parish council moderator — is also involved.
Finding The Way Back — Available from 19 March
Ben Affleck delved into his own demons for this hard-hitting drama about a former high school basketball prodigy who is recruited to coach the school's current team. He's struggling with alcoholism in the wake of a tragedy and his subsequent separation from his wife. Affleck has spoken about how the movie acted as a form of therapy for him given his own issues with drinking. Released in the UK last year, it's a powerful study of addiction in which Affleck delivers his best performance in years.
Creation Stories — Available from 20 March
Trainspotting star Ewen Bremner leads this Sky Original, portraying the controversial record label exec Alan McGee. Creation Records signed iconic artists including Oasis and Primal Scream, aiming to move away from acts the founders — including McGee — saw as "manufactured" for mainstream success. Jason Isaacs (hello), Suki Waterhouse, Rupert Everett and This Is England star Thomas Turgoose are also due to appear.
Six Minutes to Midnight — Available from 26 March
A mystery thriller set on the verge of the Second World War, this Sky Original features Eddie Izzard and Judi Dench on the trail of a group of missing students who are in grave danger thanks to a dark plot. Izzard's character — an English teacher drafted in when their predecessor disappears in suspicious circumstances — ends up framed for murder, with school governess Dench providing assistance.

Your Honor — Available from 2 March
Bryan Cranston plays an experienced judge forced into moral murkiness in this drama series. Cranston is Michael Desiato, whose son Adam (Hunter Doohan) is involved in a hit-and-run, forcing him into the orbit of an organised crime family. As things spin further out of control, Cranston's character must make a series of difficult decisions in order to protect his family.
First Ladies — Available from 8 March
This documentary series focuses — as the title suggests — on women who have held the title of First Lady of the United States throughout history. Narrated by Wonder Woman star Robin Wright, it follows the lives and careers of many inspiring women who have lived in the White House, including Michelle Obama.
How It Feels To Be Free — Available from 8 March
Yoruba Richen's documentary film profiles six African-American women who have had to battle to overcome both racism and sexism in the entertainment industry. It focuses on Lena Horne, Abbey Lincoln, Nina Simone, Diahann Carroll, Cicely Tyson and Pam Grier and includes contributions from a variety of Black performers who consider themselves inspired by the trailblazing women depicted in the movie.
The Good Doctor S4 — Available weekly from 16 March
House creator David Shore developed this hit drama series, which came about when actor Daniel Dae Kim bought the rights to the South Korean series of the similar name. Freddie Highmore plays an autistic savant doctor, with Nicholas Gonzalez and Antonia Thomas starring in regular roles as other surgical doctors at the same hospital. As well as the newly airing fourth season, the other three runs are available to stream now.
The Flight Attendant — Available from 19 March
After years as one of the stars of The Big Bang Theory and fresh off her consistently entertaining voice work as Harley Quinn, Kaley Cuoco has been nominated for a Golden Globe and a SAG Award for The Flight Attendant. Having premiered on HBO Max in the USA, the show is now arriving on these shores.
Cuoco plays an alcoholic, hard-partying flight attendant who wakes up one morning with the corpse of a murdered passenger lying next to her. She is investigated by the FBI and attempts to uncover what happened to the man. With Cuoco established as a fixture of the coming awards season, this is primed for a binge-watch.
Hausen — Available from 26 March
A 16-year-old boy and his father move into an abandoned building on the outskirts of the German city where they live. What could possibly go wrong? Well, naturally the building is haunted in some way and appears to be malevolently feeding on the suffering of those who live within it, like a sort of architectural Dementor. It sounds spooky and fascinating.
Tina — Available from 28 March
Debuting via Sky in conjunction with its HBO premiere in the US, this documentary delves into the life and career of the music icon Tina Turner. Turner herself will appear in the doc, helmed by duo Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin. The filmmakers nabbed plenty of exclusive access, not to mention a starry roster of A-list talking heads.
