Sky TV and broadband customers can tune into five film premieres this week – providing they have a Sky Movies subscription.

On Friday December 2nd, the satellite TV and broadband provider gives a first airing to Little Fockers, Neverland (Part 1), Season of the Witch, Miral and Mean Girls 2.

Ben Stiller renews hostilities with Hollywood legend Robert De Niro in Little Fockers, the latest sequel to the 2000 smash hit Meet the Parents.

De Niro is in typically scene-stealing form as Stiller's ever-suspicious father-in-law, in this third instalment of the series.

When Greg (Stiller) and his wife Pam (Teri Polo) celebrate the birthday of their 10-year-old twins, Greg finds himself obliged to prove he's the man of the house.

Another movie sure to be an instant family favourite is Neverland (Part 1) – the first part of the classic Peter Pan story.

Orphan Peter Pan (Charlie Rowe) runs a gang of London pickpockets who are rounded up by the scheming Jimmy Hook (Rhys Ifans) and given the job of stealing a magical treasure that can transport them to another world - Neverland.

There they come across a band of 18th century pirates led by the power-mad Elizabeth Bonny (Anna Friel) and the Native American Kaw tribe led by a Holy Man (Raoul Trujillo).

Changing the mood completely, Nicolas Cage stars as the tired and disillusioned crusader Behmen in Season of the Witch.

Having fled the Christian wars, he finds himself in a land ravaged by the Black Death, where he and companion Felson (Ron Perlman) are cajoled into transporting the 'witch' accused of starting the sickness that is killing hundreds.

Miral sees the return of Slumdog Millionaire's Freida Pinto, who plays a Palestinian girl brought up in an orphanage and radicalised by a spell teaching in a refugee camp.

In this thoughtful picture, four Arab-Israeli women tell of their experiences at the hands of the occupying Israelis, ranging from incarceration for terrorism to selfless acts of heroism.

And at the other end of the spectrum - chic flick fans will no doubt be looking forward to Mean Girls 2, the surprise sequel to the Lindsay Lohan original.

High school 'hottie' Meaghan Martin takes the lead role as Jo, an attractive tomboy whose dad works as a Nascar mechanic.

She finds herself an easy target for the snobby female clique, but in cahoots with nerdy Abby (Jennifer Stone) forms a plan to get her own back.
