Or, you could watch one of the following movies airing on TV tonight.
Last Passenger - Legend - 9pm
Our pick for tonight is this UK thriller focusing on a group of passengers, including a doctor (Dougray Scott - Mission: Impossible 2) and his son, on a night train from London who gradually come to realise that the driver of the vehicle has a dark plan for everyone onboard.
Released in 2013 to rave reviews but a sadly limited cinema release, Last Passenger's great cast full of recognisable British thespians, taut and tight screenplay and impressive special effects make it well worth a watch.
You can check out its trailer right here:
The Book of Eli - Film4 - 9pm
In this underrated action sci-fi, Denzel Washington plays a nomad in a post-apocalyptic America who seeks to deliver a copy of a mysterious book to a safe location.

The disappoiningly lackluster sequel to the original brilliant Jack Reacher starring Tom Cruise.

You, Me and Dupree - Comedy Central - 9pm
