The Hitman’s Bodyguard (BigPond Movies)

For your movie night in, grab the popcorn and start streaming The Hitman’s Bodyguard – fresh from the cinema on BigPond Movies. Ryan Reynolds stars in this quick-witted action comedy about a disgraced private bodyguard, begrudgingly assigned to protect an infamous assassin (Samuel L. Jackson) travelling to The Hague to testify against a ruthless dictator. Packed full of tense car chases, explosive gunfights and viciously biting banter, it’s a lot of fun thanks to the great chemistry between two leading men.

Mudbound (Netflix)

A must-see for fans of powerful drama is the critically acclaimed Netflix Original film, Mudbound. Based on the novel of the same name and starring Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton), Australia’s Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty), Carey Mulligan (Drive, Suffragette) and Mary J. Blige, this beautifully crafted film tells the story of two World War II veterans returning to family life in rural Mississippi amidst racial tensions, class struggles and the burden of post-traumatic stress.

SMILF (Stan)

Despite its crude, trivial-sounding name, Stan’s new comedy series SMILF is a refreshingly heartfelt take on the experience of a young, broke single mum trying to make it in the world. Written and directed by the show’s leading actor, Frankie Shaw, the semi-autobiographical SMILF combines just enough authentic humour and heartbreak to make it feel genuine, without leaving you feeling miserable.

The Secret Daughter (PLUS7)

And now in its second season, The Secret Daughter airs Wednesday nights at 8:45pm AEST on Seven – with all past episodes from seasons one and two available on-demand on PLUS7. Jessica Mauboy returns in this hit Australian series as Billie Carter, a country pub singer confronted with complicated family issues, pivotal life choices and a career that’s just starting to take off. Can’t get enough of the songs from the series? Add the soundtrack to your library on Apple Music.
