These are the six best movies on TV for your Saturday night in

Some great ways to spend your evening.

There are actually plenty more movies on tonight besides this list - including Superbad, Now You See Me, and Die Another Day - but between them either not being very good, or being on TV a lot recently, we've decided to keep them off this list.

Instead, we're focusing on the best movies that you might not have seen very often on the telly, kicking off with...

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part - RTE One - 7.05pm

The all-star voice cast returns for the animated comedy, as the Lego characters from the first movie find themselves in a post-apocalypse, i.e. their owners no longer want to play with them.

Atomic Blonde - FilmFour - 9pm

Charlize Theron and James McAvoy star in this stylish, slick action-thriller, as a Russian secret agent and her handler, dealing with international espionage and double (and sometimes triple!) agents.

Money Monster - RTE Two - 9.25pm

George Clooney and Julia Roberts star in this thriller directed by Jodie Foster, dealing with a TV host (Clooney) and his producer (Roberts) who are held hostage live on TV by a viewer (Jack O'Connell) who followed his financial advice, leading to his personal ruin.

Knight & Day - Channel 4 - 10pm

Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz star in this high-energy action-rom-com, with Cruise as an unhinged secret agent trying to prove his innocence after he is framed for a crime he didn't commit, and Diaz as the woman he initially takes hostage, before she decides to try to help him out.

A Cure For Wellness - FilmFour - 11.15pm

Margin Call - BBC One - 11.20pm
