The Truman Show - Sony Movie Channel - 18.55pm

Spectre - ITV2 - 8.00pm

Daniel Craig's James Bond is back to face off against old rivals Spectre, headed up by the inimitable Christoph Waltz. Did you know that Radiohead wrote a song for the opening credits, but it was rejected for being too sad?

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri - Film 4 - 9.00pm

Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) is frustrated that the investigation into her daughter's murder has grinded to a halt. In protest, she rents three billboards with incendiary messages outside her hometown of Ebbing to rile up police chief Bill Willoughby (Woody Harrelson) and officer Jason Dixon (Sam Rockwell) and find her daughter's killer.

This dark comedy from the mind of Martin McDonagh (In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths) was a critical success when it released in 2017, with McDormand and Rockwell winning Academy Awards for their performances in each of their categories. It also won Best Picture and Best Screenplay at both the Golden Globes and the BAFTAs as well. Well worth a watch if you haven't seen it before, although be warned; there's one scene in particular that may scare you out of ever going to the dentist again...

For A Few Dollars More - ITV4 - 9.00pm

Clint Eastwood stars as the Man with No Name in this classic spaghetti western from Sergio Leone. The soundtrack from Ennio Morricone is, as per usual, absolutely fantastic.

White Chicks - Comedy Central - 9.00pm

The Wayans brothers go deep undercover as women to foil a kidnapping plot. Come for the quotable moments, stay for Terry Crews singing Vanessa Carlton's 'A Thousand Miles'.
