Need something to watch this Monday evening? Well, Amazon Prime Video has just added a bunch of massive movies, including last year's best comedy. Plus, Succession returns today for its fourth and final season.


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

Alita: Battle Angel - Film4 - 9pm

Set on Earth far in the future, a cyborg (Rosa Salazar) awakens in a new body with no memory of her past and sets out to rediscover her destiny.

Righteous Kill - Turner Classic Movies - 9pm

After The Godfather Part II and Heat, Al Pacino and Robert De Niro reteamed for this action thriller in 2008. Sadly it was nowhere near the quality of their previous collaborations.


Whiplash - TG4 - 9.30pm

Our pick for tonight is this US indie psychological drama about an ambitious young jazz drummer (Miles Teller) that is pushed to his limits by his ruthless and abusive band conductor (J.K. Simmons) at a prestigious New York music college.

The breakthrough film of writer-director Damien Chazelle (Babylon, La La Land), Whiplash features two ferocious lead performances from Simmons and Teller, some of the tautest filmmaking you'll ever see and a killer soundrack.

On top of earning a 94% score on Rotten Tomatoes, it was rightfully awarded with three Oscar wins. Simmons took home the Best Supporting Actor trophy, with the movie also cleaning up in the Best Film Editing and Best Sound Mixing categories.
