The Nun, which premiered on Monday, brings back the malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that first terrorized the audiences in The Conjuring 2 (also available on Hungama Play). Starring Demián Bichir, Taissa Farmiga, Jonas Bloquet, Bonnie Aarons, Ingrid Bisu and Charlotte Hope, The Nun received immense praise for its performances, from critics and viewers alike. Written by Gary Dauberman and James Wan, the film is directed by Corin Hardy.

Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut was nominated for 5 Golden Globe Awards (winning in the Best Original Song category), 9 Critics Choice Movie Awards (with Lady Gaga winning the Best Actress trophy) and is the front runner at the upcoming Academy Awards too.

Under guidance from Rocky, Adonis trains for the showdown of his life – a date with destiny that soon becomes his obsession.

From the imagination of Wizarding World creator J.K. Rowling comes the Fantastic Beasts film series, magical adventures set before the time of Harry Potter. At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. Directed by David Yates, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Carmen Ejogo, Poppy Corby-Tuech, Brontis Jodorowsky, Kevin Guthrie, Jude Law and Johnny Depp, and will premiere on Hungama Play in March.

All the above movies will be available to stream across all Hungama Play destinations. This includes the apps on Google Playstore and Apple Store, web interface, along with Hungama Play on Vodafone Play, Amazon Fire TV Stick and Android TVs. Hungama’s strategic association with Xiaomi will also enableconsumers to enjoy the movies via Hungama Play on Mi Video and Mi TV.
