Exclusive movies: Steamy hit Fifty Shades of Grey; comedy Dumb and Dumber To and futuristic Chappie; plus The Newsroom seasons 1-2 arrive on Presto

Presto today announced key programming set to light up the screen in November, starting with the heavily anticipated sensual romance Fifty Shades of Grey. A simple interview between Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and prominent businessman Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) leads the two into a headlong affair that pushes the boundaries of pleasure and pain.

Dimwit Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) and equally thick pal, Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) join forces in Dumb and Dumber To as they criss-cross the U.S. in search of Harry’s long-lost daughter ultimately arriving at the one place where they least belong: a summit of the world’s most brilliant minds.

Chappie, starring Hugh Jackman (X-Men) takes us into the near future where a mechanised police force patrols the streets, but now, the people are fighting back. When one police droid dubbed ‘Chappie’ is stolen and given the ability to feel and think for himself, the authorities see him as a threat and will stop at nothing to ensure that Chappie is the last of his kind.

Emmy-winning producer Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing) brings us with The Newsroom, featuring Jeff Daniels as a network news lead anchor in a drama series written around actual recent news events, reported by a staff facing corporate and commercial obstacles that stand in the way of the truth.
