One of the best sequels ever is among the movies on TV tonight

The first Monday of October is upon us. Let us celebrate with a movie or two!

As if the 52 big movie additions to Prime Video this week weren't enough for you to choose from, you've also got all of these movies on the telly tonight. Choose... wisely...


Main in Manhattan - FilmFour - 6.50pm
Jennifer Lopez headlines this not-funny, not-romantic rom-com with Ralph Fiennes as the stiff love interest.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers - Sky Showcase - 8pm

Our big pick of the flicks tonight is The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, arguably one of the best sequels ever made. The middle entry in the LOTR Trilogy, this outing properly introduces us to Gollum/Smeagol (the incredible Andy Serkis), and it gives us the legendarily epic Battle of Helm's Deep. If you miss it this evening, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is also available to watch with a NOW Cinema Membership.


Bohemian Rhapsody - FilmFour - 9pm
Rami Malek won the Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Freddy Mercury in this biopic of the musician and his time with Queen.

Waves - TG4 - 9.30pm
A very good drama about a family attempting to find a way forward after they all share a devastating loss.

Ghost in the Shell - FilmFour - 9.45pm
Scar-Jo headlines this visually very impressive but not-all-that-exciting action sci-fi thriller.

Death Race - ITV4 - 10pm
Prisoners in a future prison fight for their early release in a televised car race to the death. Jason Statham and Joan Allen star in the dumb but very fun action thriller.


Two Towers

Brad Dourif and Bernard Hill in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

The Exorcist - BBC One - 11.10pm
Effectively banned in Ireland until much more recently that you might imagine, this remains one of the best and most iconic horror movies of all time.

Selma - BBC Two - 11.15pm
This Best Picture Oscar-nominated drama tells the true story of Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo) heading a potentially dangerous march in the name of voting rights.


The Secret of Marrowbone - FilmFour - 1.50am
An impressive cast of up-and-coming talent (George Mackay, Anya Taylor Joy, Mia Goth, Charlie Heaton) star in this horror about a group of siblings trying to escape their haunted past.
