The Devil Wears Prada - FilmFour - 6.45pm

Meryl Streep's Golden Globe winning performance as Miranda Priestly, a powerful fashion magazine editor is one of her career best roles. The 2006 comedy-drama starring Anne Hathaway as her co-assistant alongside Emily Blunt and Stanley Tucci has had a major cultural impact since its release.

Collateral Damage - ITV4 - 9pm


Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as a firefighter who hunts down the terrorists that killed his family. It's about as good as it sounds.

George Clooney stars as a contract killer asked to design a high-end sniper rifle for an assassination in this European-panning slow burn thriller.

To End All Wars - Great! Action - 9pm


Based on a true story, this 2001 war flick centres on a group of POWs in a Japanese prison camp, building the Burma Railway during the last years of World War II. Kiefer Sutherland and Robert Carlyle star.

Jojo Rabbit - FilmFour - 9pm

Our pick of the movies on TV tonight is Taika Waititi's 2019 comedy drama about a member of the Hitler Youth who finds out his mother is hiding a Jewish girl in their house. Filled with satire, off-the-wall humour and a big chunk of heart, we couldn't recommend it enough.


A critical success, the flick won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, while also being nominated for five other awards, including Best Picture.

Roman Griffin Davis stars alongside Scarlett Johansson, Thomasin McKenzie and Waititi himself as an imaginary version of Hitler.

Love & Mercy - TG4 - 10.15pm

It was nominated for two Golden Globes: Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture (Paul Dano) and Best Original Song ("One Kind of Love")

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers - Turner Classic Movies - 10.50pm
