SKY AND NOW TV
'ZeroZeroZero' | February 4
Starring our very own Gabriel Byrne, 'ZeroZeroZero' is based on the novel by Roberto Saviano. Guaranteed to be fast-paced and edgy, the international series was filmed across three continents, features six languages, and is made up of eight episodes involving countries gung-ho on supremacy over the world’s cocaine trade.
'Dragon Rider' | February 12
Another on demand February release that'll pique interest is this Sky original creation for the kids.

The voice cast includes Patrick Stewart and Felicity Jones.
'Bliss' | February 5
One with 'Vanilla Sky' vibes that has us intrigued this month is 'Bliss' starring Owen Wilson and Salma Hayek. Wilson plays Greg, a recent divorcee who bumps into the mysterious Isabel (Hayek). Her beliefs of them both living inside of a harsh world simulation inside of the beautiful, peaceful "real" world of bliss, turns Greg's world upside-down.
'Greenland' | February 5
Look, we already know this is going to be a huge on demand February title. Is that because of its riveting, indie, emotional storyline, with dips and valleys, and a hint of comedy to have you smiling by the end? Oh lord no, it's just another end-of-the-world/apocalypse/climate action/CGI-fest starring Gerard Butler. What else are you expecting?
'Billie Eilish: The World's A Little Blurry' | February 26
