The Shape of Water (BigPond Movies)
Winner of this year’s Academy Award for Best Picture, THE SHAPE OF WATER, is available now, fresh from the cinema on BigPond Movies.

Over time, the pair form a close relationship and Elisa must fight to ensure the survival of her unique friend. With an all-star cast including Octavia Spencer, Michael Shannon and Michael Stuhlbarg, this visually and emotionally gorgeous film is perfect for a date night in.
Westworld (Foxtel Now)
WESTWORLD has returned for a riveting second season, express from the US each Monday from 11am (AEST) on Foxtel Now. Based on the Michael Crichton novel of the same name, the series is set in a futuristic Wild West-themed amusement park where wealthy guests can indulge any and all of their vices thanks to the park’s population of artificially intelligent human-like robots. But when the robot “hosts” go rogue, it opens up questions about the consciousness of the hosts, the intent of their creators and the real motivations behind those who are funding the park. And being the Wild West, there’s also plenty of gun-toting action to boot!
