From Oscar-winners to superhero films, tonight has got it all.

Wednesday is upon us, and the weather looks manky.

Lots and lots of rain, apparently.

What is the best course of action?

Lots and lots of movies, of course!

The Madness of King George - FilmFour - 6.50pm

When King George III (Oscar-nominated Nigel Hawthorn) goes totally mad, his friends and loyal workers attempt to keep the country running without his participation, but without anyone knowing he is no longer in charge. Helen Mirren and Rupert Everett co-star in this Oscar-winning period comedy.

The Imitation Game - More4 - 9pm

Mathematical genius Alan Turing (Oscar-nominated Benedict Cumberbatch) is drafted by the Allied war forces to crack the German Enigma code, but Turing has some secrets of his own that he wants to keep at all costs. Co-stars Keira Knightley, Mark Strong, Matthew Goode and Charles Dance.

The Festival - FilmFour - 9pm

Joe Thomas (best known as Simon from The Inbetweeners) has just been dumped, so his best friend decides to try to distract him with an epic three-day music festival. Music, mud, and going mad in a field ensues.

Hulk - ITV4 - 10.05pm

Before Mark Ruffalo, and before Edward Norton, we had this oddball Marvel movie, with Eric Bana as Bruce Banner, under the direction of Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain). The special effects haven't aged well, but it is definitely one of the more "interesting" superhero movies of recent years.

Rough Night - FilmFour - 11.05pm

Scar-Jo is about to get married, and her best friends (Zoe Kravitz, Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer) hire her a male stripper for her bachelorette party. Things take a turn for the worse when they accidentally kill him and they're forced to try to hide the body from the police.
