Sky Cinema Original Films has added some new titles to its raft of exclusives.

Life Itself is a moving tale of two families interconnecting over multiple generations. It's written and directed by Dan Fogelman (This Is Us, Crazy, Stupid Love) and stars Oscar Isaac, Olivia Cooke and Antonio Banderas.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, meanwhile, is a chilling thriller about serial killer Ted Bundy. Zac Efron stars as Bundy, along with Lily Collins, John Malkovich and The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons.

Sky Cinema Original Films has also secured UK distribution rights to the Matthew McConaughey noir thriller Serenity.

Sky Cinema Original Films releases films in cinemas the same day as they are available to watch at home on Sky. Its previous efforts have been a little underwhelming, including Monster Family, The Hurricane Heist and Anon.

This September sees it release a new thriller called Final Score, starring Pierce Brosnan and ex-wrestler Dave Bautista.

"I'm thrilled that we've acquired these fantastic titles to add to our Sky Cinema Original Films offering," said Ian Lewis, Sky Cinema group director. "It takes our originals slate to another level with some great films that we're really excited about bringing to the UK market.

"They're all really fantastic propositions with some big names attached and will get people down to the cinema or watching on Sky Cinema."
