In this Oscar Best Picture winner, a small-time Philadelphia boxer (Sylvester Stallone, who also wrote the movie) gets a supremely rare chance to fight the world heavyweight champion.

The Bleeder - TG4 - 11.05pm

Funnily enough, this sports drama focuses on the life of heavyweight boxer Chuck Wepner (Liev Schreiber), whose 1975 title fight with Muhammad Ali is said to have inspired Sylvester Stallone's Rocky screenplay.

Blue Steel - Film4 - 11.05pm

This sadly underseen action thriller from the great Kathryn Bigelow (Point Break, The Hurt Locker) follows a rookie cop (Jamie Lee Curtis) who becomes engaged in a cat-and-mouse game with a serial killer (Ron Silver).

Our pick for tonight, this 2007 film from David Fincher (Fight Club, Seven) tells the story of the manhunt for the Zodiac Killer, who terrorised the San Francisco Bay Area in late 1960s and early 1970s.

Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr., Zodiac's authentic yet stylish recreation of the era combined with its sprawling detail-heavy screenplay leaves it a tense, grimly gripping portrait of a city paralysed with fear.

Legal Eagles - RTÉ2 - 11.50pm

A comedic legal thriller starring Daryl Hannah, Debra Winger and Robert Redford.
