A hit heist thriller is among the movies on TV tonight

The cast for the movie features multiple Oscar winners.

Staying in this Saturday? Well, you've got plenty of movie options on TV, including:


Sneakers - Legend - 9pm
Our pick for tonight is this 1992 heist thriller movie about the leader of a security specialists team (Robert Redford) who finds his past returning to haunt him when he and his colleagues are tasked with retrieving a particularly important item.

Directed by Phil Alden Robinson (Field of Dreams), Sneakers boasts an all-star cast - including Ben Kingsley, Dan Aykroyd, David Strathairn, Mary McDonnell, River Phoenix and Sidney Poitier.

A hit at the box office upon release, the movie also earned great reviews - 80% on Rotten Tomatoes - with critics praising it for its breezy tone and smart storytelling.

As well as airing on TV tonight, Sneakers is available to rent on Apple TV+ and Google Play.
