Four more films debut on Sky Premiere this Friday (January 24th), including Sacha Gervasi's 'Hitchcock'.

Anthony Hopkins - who assumes the guise of the legendary director - and Helen Mirren - who plays his long-suffering wife Alma - deliver star turns in this low-key drama set around the production of 'Psycho'.

It’s 1959, and Alfred Hitchcock is reflecting on the critical and commercial success of 'North By Northwest' - one of the finest films of his career.

He now finds himself drawn towards a violent novel by Robert Bloch, which is based on the crimes of the infamous serial killer Ed Gein.

'Psycho' highlight's Hitch's passion and undoubted genius, but also sheds light on his notoriously unhealthy interest in his leading ladies.

In this case, it was Janet Leigh (Scarlett Johansson) and Vera Miles (Jessica Biel) at the centre of his attention.

Sky Movies has three more premieres this week, including British comedy 'Vinyl'.

A past-it rock group led by the wrinkly Johnny Jones (Phil Daniels) use their own ingenuity to overcome music industry ageism.

The group recruits a fresh-faced punk band to act as a front for its new recordings.

Keith Allen and Perry Benson co-star in this Sara Sugarman production - which is a not-so-thinly-veiled swipe at the 21st century music business.

Another film set to air for the first time this Friday is '96 Minutes' - a multi-stranded drama with echoes of the Oscar-winning Crash.

Four young lives collide with devastating consequences in Atlanta, where promising student (Evan Ross) finds himself held back by his volatile friend (J Michael Trautmann), and two college girls (Brittany Snow and Christian Serratos) suffer from confidence-crushing personal issues.

'Spring Breakers' is sure to lighten the mood - this film sees three wild party girls - played by Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine - head to Florida for a debauched Spring Break vacation.

Having financed the trip with a vicious hold-up at a fast food restaurant, they fall in with local drugs lord Alien, played by James Franco.
