Serenity stars McConaughey as Baker Dill, a fishing boat captain leading tours off a tranquil, tropical enclave called Plymouth Island. His quiet life is shattered when his ex-wife Karen (Hathaway) tracks him down and begs him to save her and their young son from her new, violent husband (Jason Clarke) by taking him out to sea and leaving him for the sharks.

The new films follow on from animated adventure Monster Family, disaster thriller The Hurricane Heist, Final Score -a . new thriller featuring Pierce Brosnan and Dave Bautista – and cyber mystery Anon as the latest Sky Cinema Original Films.
