Staying in this Friday evening? Well, your viewing choices include The Late Late Show, a 2023 movie gem just added to Prime Video and a 2023 TV gem streaming on Apple TV+


However, for more options, here are the films airing on TV tonight.

Flight - Film4 - 9pm


Our pick for tonight is this 2012 drama focusing on an airline pilot (Denzel Washington) who saves almost all his passengers when his aircraft gets into trouble. However, an investigation into the crash brings some troubling information to light.

Directed by Robert Zemeckis (the Back to the Future trilogy, Forrest Gump), Flight is noteworthy for its incredibly tense plane crash sequence, as well as Washington's Oscar-nominated performance in which the actor got to play one of his most complex characters to date.
