What is an .MOVIE file?
.MOVIE is QuickTime Movie File
Movie saved or formatted in Apple's proprietary QuickTime format; may use one of many types of codecs to compress the file, including the H.264 video codec, which uses a high-efficiency compression algorithm; H.264 support was introduced with QuickTime 7.0, which was released with Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and is also available with QuickTime for Windows.
Most QuickTime movies can be played back by earlier versions of QuickTime Player, but QuickTime 7 or later is required to play back H.264-encoded video files.
QuickTime movies may also use the .MOV extension, which is especially common on Windows-based computers.
Payday Movie File
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.
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.
