A MOVIE file is a video file used by Payday games, such as Payday 2 and Payday: The Heist. It contains a video used in Payday, such as when characters offer contracts to the player during a cutscene. MOVIE files are renamed .BIK files.

More Information

You most likely will only come across a MOVIE file if you are modifying Payday gameplay. Otherwise, the file is referenced by the game during gameplay.

NOTE: Since MOVIE files are renamed BIK files, you can change the ".movie" extension to ".bik" to open them with video players that support the Bink video format.
