Roll out the red carpet: Daniel Radcliffe, Hugh Jackman and Patrick Swayze are among the stellar line-up starring in some of the titles on offer right now in BT TV Store’s 99p Film Sale. Here are five favourites that will leave you change for popcorn...
The Grand Budapest Hotel
Best for: A dose of style
Indulge in a feast for the eyes with a slice of Wes Anderson’s nutty comedy, The Grand Budapest Hotel. The film tells the tale of legendary concierge Gustave H (played by Ralph Fiennes) at the famous and grandiose European hotel, and follows his adventures with his protégé and most trusted friend, lobby boy Moustafa. Expect a deadpan script and a very pink, meticulously chosen colour palette.
Watch The Grand Budapest Hotel, available to rent in the BT TV Store for 99p until 19 March
Best for: A thrilling ride
Twists, turns and a finale that’ll play over and over in your head well beyond the end credits, this Gillian Flynn novel adaptation will have you gripped. The story begins as Nick Dunne (played by Ben Affleck) comes home to find his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) has disappeared. What follows is a murder investigation, an intense media circus and the dark question on everyone’s lips: did Nick kill his wife?

Eddie the Eagle
Best for: Sports fans
Pastel spandex and 80s synth-pop – what’s not to love about this feelgood sporting epic, inspired by the true story of an Olympic ski-jumping underdog? Michael ‘Eddie The Eagle’ Edwards (played by Taron Egerton) didn’t let bad eyesight, a lack of athleticism and an entire nation dismissing him get in the way of sheer enthusiasm to make the 1988 Winter Olympics. We’d feel the same if our coach was Hugh Jackman, to be honest.

Best for: Nail-biting drama
Leaving Hogwarts and his Harry Potter specs far behind, Daniel Radcliffe dons a shaved head and an American accent for his role in Imperium, a film based on the true accounts of federal agent Michael German. Radcliffe plays Nate Foster, a member of the FBI who infiltrates a neo-Nazi group in order to foil a brewing terrorist plot. Terrifying.

Best for: Euphoric romance
Classic film Dirty Dancing needs no introduction really, but for the uninitiated, 17-year-old ‘Baby’ Houseman and her family spend the summer of ’63 at a hotel resort in the Catskill Mountains in New York State. That's where she spots dance instructor Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze) and his irresistible moves. Cue a teenage love story, classic choreography and singalong songs.
