Here are all the big movies on TV on St Stephen's Day

Or Boxing Day, whatever you prefer to call it...

Christmas Day has come and gone.


The wrapping paper all stuffed into the bin, an ungodly amount of turkey left to eat, and a hangover you can't quite shake.

At least there are a load of class films to watch on the telly today.

Everyone continues to be kung fu fighting.

And I think it's gonna be a long long time before we see another film like this (see what I did there?).
