Toy Story 4 (2019) (Sky Cinema Premiere, 11.30am & 7.00pm)

Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks), Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) and the gang are the property of a little girl called Bonnie (Madeleine McGraw), who is nervously preparing for kindergarten orientation. The tearful tyke overcomes her nerves by creating Forky (Tony Hale) from discarded arts and crafts supplies. The repurposed plastic utensil becomes Bonnie's security blanket during a family road trip to Grand Basin, which lights the touch paper on more than one existential crisis. Toy Story 4 is a rip-roaring fourth instalment of the Oscar-winning franchise, which will have parents dabbing their eyes with almost as many sodden handkerchiefs as its predecessors. The script quietly preaches the beauty of imperfection between breathlessly staged action set-pieces and a barrage of visual gags, which demand a second viewing.

Sing (2016) (STV, 5pm)

Koala bear entrepreneur Buster Moon (voiced by Matthew McConaughey) inherited a theatre from his father, but the business has gone into decline. In order to woo audiences and save the business, Buster organises a singing competition with a $1,000 prize. Unfortunately, Buster's elderly iguana assistant Ms Crawly accidentally adds two more zeroes to the prize on promotional posters. By the time Buster discovers her costly error, long audition queues have formed around the theatre. He ploughs on regardless, shortlisting a number of animals voiced by the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane and Scarlett Johansson in this lively, if predictable animation. Listen out for Taron Egerton belting out Elton John's I'm Still Standing, three years before he played the singer in Rocketman.

Jason Bourne (2016) (Channel 4, 9pm)

After stepping aside for The Bourne Legacy, Matt Damon returned to the franchise for the thrilling fifth instalment. Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) is living off the grid on the Greek-Albanian border and posing as a bare-knuckle brawler. Far away in Iceland, former contact Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles) illegally accesses the CIA mainframe and discovers a shocking secret about Bourne's former life as David Webb. Ambitious CIA protegee Heather Lee (Alicia Vikander) plants malware that allows her to covertly track Nicky's movements, which lead to Bourne... It's a deceptive slow burn for the opening half hour, but once the script lights the fuse on manifold deceptions, there's little time to breathe between plot revelations and bloodthirsty retribution.

Arrival (2016) (Film4, 9pm)

Twelve giant obloid spacecraft enter Earth's atmosphere and descend over seemingly random locations. US Army Colonel Weber (Forest Whitaker) leads the American response and recruits emotionally scarred linguistics expert Dr Louise Banks (Amy Adams) to decipher a coded language used by the visitors. Louise aligns with military scientist Ian Donnelly (Jeremy Renner) to unravel the conundrum, while the CIA, led by Agent Halpern (Michael Stuhlbarg), considers the terrifying possibility that we are in the calm before an intergalactic storm. Based on a short story by Ted Chiang, Arrival is contemplative science-fiction drama anchored by Adams' mesmerising performance, which imagines mankind's shambolic reaction to first contact with an otherworldly race.

We Have Always Lived in the Castle (2018) (Sky Cinema Premiere, 12.30pm)

Based on the novel by Shirley Jackson, who also wrote The Haunting of Hill House, this thriller stars Taissa Farmiga as teenager Merricat Blackwood, who lives with her sister Constance (Alexandra Daddario) and Uncle Julian (Crispin Glover) following her parents' death from arsenic poisoning. In the wake of the incident, the sisters have become increasingly isolated, especially as the many of the townsfolk suspect Constance of being a murderer. Merricat uses 'spells' to protect their property but even she can't keep out their cousin Charles (Sebastian Stan), whose arrival leads to a battle for control. We Have Always Lived in the Castle never quite manages to create the required gothic atmosphere, but the strong performances make up for it.

Dances with Wolves (1990) (Channel 5, 2.30pm)

Disillusioned cavalry officer John Dunbar (Kevin Costner, who also directs) leads his troops to an unlikely victory during the American Civil War. Afterwards, his superiors offer him any post he wants; he chooses the Western frontier, where he learns to love life again thanks to his friendship with a Sioux Indian tribe. However, the tribe is threatened when Dunbar's former comrades come looking for him. Costner's career reached its peak with this multi-Oscar winning Western (even if some film buffs are still resentful that it beat out Martin Scorsese's mobster masterpiece GoodFellas for Best Picture and Best Director). This is top-class entertainment, with uniformly wonderful performances from everyone, not just Costner.

The Martian (2015) (E4, 9pm)

The six-strong crew of the Ares 3, led by Commander Melissa Lewis (Jessica Chastain), are gathering samples on Mars when sensors pick up an approaching storm. Lewis gives the order to evacuate and during the trek back to the ship, botanist Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is hit by flying debris. Believing him to be dead, the rest of the crew blasts off without him. Little do they realise that back on Mars, Watney is alive. Meanwhile on Earth, the NASA top brass cut corners to let Mark know the cavalry is coming - but can he last until they arrive? Adapted from the bestselling novel by Andy Weir, Ridley Scott's film is a riveting survival thriller set 140 million miles from home, which bears obvious similarities to the Oscar-winning Gravity in both set-up and execution.

The Proposal (2009) (Channel 5, 10pm)

In the hallowed corridors of Ruick & Hunt Publishing, New York book editor Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock) is feared by one and all, including her long-suffering assistant Andrew (Ryan Reynolds). When Margaret is threatened with deportation to Canada when her visa expires, she forces Andrew to pose as her fiance and walk her down the aisle, with the understanding that they can get divorced a few months later when she has her citizenship. As part of the ruse, she accompanies her assistant home to Sitka, Alaska, for a family get-together, where ice queen Margaret begins to thaw. The Proposal hits more targets than it misses, and Bullock takes Peter Chiarelli's screenplay by the scruff of the neck and wrings every giggle out of it.

Gone Girl (2014) (Film4, 9pm)

On the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) calls the police to his home. There are signs of a struggle and his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) is missing. Amy's distraught parents (David Clennon, Lisa Beth) join Nick to front a high-profile media campaign to secure the safe return of their daughter, but in the glare of the spotlight, fractures appear in the Dunnes' marriage and the cops and public openly question Nick's innocence. Gone Girl is a spiky satire, skilfully adapted by Gillian Flynn from her 2012 bestseller. Admittedly, you have to dig deep beneath the surface of David Fincher's polished film to find the jet-black humour - but it's there, walking hand-in-hand with sadism and torture that propel the narrative towards its unconventional denouement at breakneck speed.

Fury (2014) (Channel 5, 11.05pm)

Eight weeks after he enrols in the US Army as a clerk typist, Norman Ellison (Logan Lerman) is assigned the position of assistant driver in a tank christened Fury under the command of Sergeant Don 'Wardaddy' Collier (Brad Pitt). This battle-weary veteran began the war in Africa and moved to Europe, killing numerous Germans along the way. Aided by the rest of the tank's crew, Collier gives Norman an initiation he will never forget on a series of missions led by Captain Waggoner (Jason Isaacs). Directed with testosterone-fuelled swagger by David Ayer, Fury is an atmospheric picture of the hell of war, studded with polished dialogue that doesn't always ring true.

The Killing (1956) (Film4, 2.50pm)

Stanley Kubrick's gripping film noir stars Sterling Hayden as a career criminal who is planning the obligatory one last big job before he settles down and marries his fiancee. To pull off the audacious heist, which involves robbing a heavily guarded racetrack, he recruits a number of accomplices, including a sharpshooter (Timothy Carey), a crooked police officer (Ted de Corsia), a bartender (Joe Sawyer) and a betting teller (Elisha Cook Jr). However, he doesn't count on one of them confiding the plan in the wrong person... It was a box office flop on its release, but many critics hailed The Killing for its time-shuffling narrative, striking direction and great performances - and rightly identified the then 28-year-old Kubrick as a talent to watch.

The Florida Project (2017) (Film4, 11.25pm)

Single mother Halley (Bria Vinaite) sells designer fragrances to wealthy theme park visitors, aided by her precocious six-year-old daughter Moonee (Brooklynn Prince). It's a struggle to raise the rent for a single room at the Magic Castle Motel and placate long-suffering manager Bobby (Willem Dafoe). During the day, little Moonee goes on adventures with other children. Their escapades drive Bobby to distraction, and an increasingly volatile Halley resorts to desperate measures to evade social services. The Florida Project is an exuberant portrait of families living hand-to-mouth in the shadow of Disney World. It's an emotionally raw and unflinching character study, but the film softens the impact with earthy humour and humanity. Set your recorders if you can't face the late start.

My Cousin Rachel (2017) (Film4, 9pm)

Orphan Philip (Sam Claflin) is raised by his older cousin Ambrose on a sprawling estate nestled handsomely on the Cornish coast. When Ambrose falls gravely ill, the doctor recommends a trip abroad to recuperate in the balmier climes of Florence. Philip is promoted to man of the house in Ambrose's enforced absence. Out of the blue, the new master receives a troubling letter from Ambrose, which reveals that he has married a woman called Rachel (Rachel Weisz), who has become his "torment". Further letters suggest that Rachel is poisoning him - "She has done for me at last" - and when Ambrose dies, Philip vows revenge. Filmed on location in Cornwall, My Cousin Rachel is a handsome adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's text that retains an air of tantalising mystery until the final frame.

Young Adult (2011) (Channel 4, 1.25am)

Juno writer Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman reunite for this sharp, pitch-black comedy. Former high-school queen bee Mavis Gary (a fearless Charlize Theron) is now a hard-drinking writer who makes her living penning a series of Sweet Valley High-style teenage novels that is about to discontinued due to waning popularity. Desperate for creative inspiration for the final book, Mavis is distracted by an email from her teenage boyfriend Buddy Slade (Patrick Wilson) and his wife Beth (Elizabeth Reaser) announcing the birth of their daughter. Convinced that this is a sign from the universe, Mavis travels to her hometown of Mercury, determined to show Buddy that even though he may be under the impression that he's happily married, he really belongs with her.

The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976) (ITV4, 9pm)

Missouri farmer Josey Wales (Clint Eastwood, who also directs) vows revenge after his family is slaughtered by maverick soldiers during the American Civil War. While tracking down those responsible, he becomes an outlaw, much-feared by those who've heard of his ruthless ways. As time passes and the conflict ends, Josey becomes a wanted man, but despite his efforts to remain a loner, he unwittingly creates a new family from a bunch of mismatched, disenfranchised souls. Largely ignored on release, this absorbing and frequently very funny Western is now rightly regarded as one of Eastwood's best - although the charming Chief Dan George comes close to stealing the entire movie from him.

Pretty Woman (1990) (Sony Movies, 9pm)

Julia Roberts gives a truly star-making performance in the rags-to-riches fairy tale of prostitute Vivian, who is plucked off the streets of LA by handsome and commitment-shy businessman Edward Lewis (Richard Gere, who has terrific chemistry with his leading lady). After agreeing to become his paid companion for the week, Vivian's relationship with Edward threatens to become more than just business - and she also makes a big impression on kindly hotel manager Barney (Hector Elizondo). However, Edward's business partner Stuckey (Jason Alexander) is less easily charmed as he fears that the working girl with a heart of gold will wreck everything that he and Edward have built together.

The Great Gatsby (2013) (Sony Movies, 9pm)

Mysterious war hero Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) lives in a bay-side mansion with a menagerie of servants, who help him throw the most extravagant parties for the whole of New York. Lowly stockbroker Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire), who lives next door, is drawn into Gatsby's orbit and falls under his neighbour's spell. As the stockbroker is granted admission to the millionaire's inner circle, he discovers heartbreak in Gatsby's past linked to Nick's cousin Daisy (Carey Mulligan), who lives across the bay with her philandering husband, Tom (Joel Edgerton). The Great Gatsby is a visually sumptuous adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald. DiCaprio inhabits his central role with conviction but sparks of screen chemistry with an expertly coiffed Mulligan fail to ignite.

In the Heat of the Night (1967) (BBC2, 11.45pm)

When a wealthy industrialist in found murdered in a Mississippi town, the racist local sheriff Bill Gillespie (Rod Steiger) is quick to accuse black newcomer Virgil Tibbs (Sidney Poitier) who has been spotted in the town, only to discover that his chief suspect is actually a decorated homicide detective from Philadelphia. Despite this disastrous start, the pair work together to find the real killer, reaching a new respect along the way. Released in 1967 at the height of the US civil rights movement, director Norman Jewison's drama boasts great performances and at least one truly iconic line from Poitier. No wonder it won the Best Picture Oscar in a landmark year, beating The Graduate and Bonnie and Clyde.
