If you're in the mood for an early Christmas movie tonight, then we've got you covered!

Of course, if you're not in the mood for a Christmas movie just yet, then you can treat yourself with a spy movie, or an action comedy, or a horror. The choice is yours.

Speaking of treating yourself, the Lovin Dublin’s Date Box meal kit is officially available to order, so if you live in the Dublin area, treat yourself to one (or more!) of those!

The Bourne Identity - ITV4 - 9pm

Matt Damon's first outing as the amnesiac assassin has him running through Europe with both the local police and American government chasing him down, all while he's trying to figure out why he's being chased in the first place.

Office Christmas Party - FilmFour - 9pm

Okay, deep breath. (inhales) Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, TJ Miller, Olivia Munn, Kate McKinnon, Courtney B. Vance, Jillian Bell, Rob Corddry, and loads more very famous funny faces (exhales) appear in this Christmas-set comedy about a company deciding to have the office party to end all office parties.

Beverly Hills Cop II - Comedy Central - 9pm

This very-stylish comedy-thriller finds Eddie Murphy as the rough Detroit cop called back out the the coast when a group of high-end diamond robbers put one of his best friends in the ICU.

Rough Night - FilmFour - 11.10pm

Scar-Jo, Jillian Bell (again), Zoe Kravitz, Kate McKinnon (again), and Ilana Glazer star in this dark comedy about a hen's night that goes south when they accidentally kill the male stripper they hired for their party.

Final Destination - ITV4 - 11.20pm

Did you know this script was originally written as an episode of The X-Files? Makes sense when you think about it: a group of teens narrowly escape death on a mid-air exploding plane, but turns out death has plans for them all, as they all start getting killed off one by one in increasingly implausible manners.
