4 gb is the file system limitation. You're not going to be able to put them on internal storage. Get an otg usb stick and use that

I'd suggest getting movies that don't have 5.1 audio. That's what usually make the file so large

You can split up the movie in .rar-parts and unrar on your phone again. This works good for me
