Idris Elba. Christian Bale. Reece Witherspoon. And, eh, Mrs. Brown. They're all on tonight!

Happy Hump Day, everyone!

Loads to choose from tonight, if you're not thinking of checking out Netflix's brand new take on the Sherlock Holmes stories, then maybe one of these will be the one for you:

Exodus: Gods and Kings - More4 - 9pm

Ridley Scott directs Christian Bale as Moses and Joel Edgerton as Pharaoh Ramses in this huge budget retelling of the Biblical tale, involving all of the plagues and the escape across Egypt.

The Mountain Between Us - FilmFour - 9pm

Idris Elba and Kate Winslet play two strangers who survive a plane crash in a snow-covered mountain region. When they realise help isn't coming for them, they must take on the journey back to safety by themselves.

Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie - RTE One - 9.35pm

There are two types of people: people who like Mrs. Brown's Boys and people who don't. Which you are will help you decide if you are going to watch this or not.

Scarface - ITV4 - 10pm

He wants you to say hello to his little friend. But his little friend is actually a very big gun, and not particularly friendly.

Buried - FilmFour - 11.15pm

Ryan Reynolds plays a truck driver who is kidnapped and wakes up buried alive in a coffin. With only a lighter and a phone, he must try to find a way to contact the outside world so they can find him before his oxygen runs out. Incredibly tense and claustrophobic thriller.

Wild - FilmFour - 1.05am

Reece Witherspoon takes the lead in this true-life drama about a woman who takes on a journey of over one thousand mile solo hike in an attempt to get over a personal tragedy.
