Tense, twisty thriller is among the movies on TV tonight

John Cusack directs an ensemble cast.

The weekend may not have arrived yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t relax this Thursday night with a good movie.

As such, here’s what movies are playing on TV tonight.

Ocean’s Twelve – Classic Turner Films – 9pm

George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon plan a series of heists in Europe in this fun sequel to Ocean’s Eleven.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web – Film4 – 9pm

Claire Foy stars in this soft-reboot/sequel to the incredible 2011 adaptation of the hit thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Die Another Day – ITV4 – 9pm

The last James Bond film starring Pierce Brosnan.

Cabin Fever – Horror Channel – 9pm

This 2016 remake of Eli Roth’s cult horror favorite of the same name has a 0% score on Rotten Tomatoes, so it’s probably best avoided.

Raising Baby / My Favorite Wife – BBC Four – 9pm/10:40pm

A wacky comedy double poster by Cary Grant.

Identity – Horror Channel – 22:55

Our pick for tonight stars John Cusack, Ray Liotta and Amanda Peet and follows ten strangers stranded in a desolate Nevada motel during a nasty rainstorm who find they are being killed one by one.

Directed by James Mangold (Ford v Ferrari, Logan), Identity’s strong cast and ominous atmosphere pretty much make up for the film’s increasingly convoluted twists and turns.

Nerf – Movie4 – 23:15

In this techno thriller, two strangers (Dave Franco and Emma Roberts) become involved in an online challenge game that becomes increasingly dangerous.

V for Vendetta – Classic Turner Movies – 11:40 PM

Natalie Portman and a masked Hugo Weaving star in this strong adaptation of Alan Moore’s graphic novel.

Rocky IV – ITV4 – 00:40

In this sports drama sequel, Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) battles Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), a Soviet boxer responsible for causing personal tragedy.

Sabotage – Film4 – 01:05

The crime thriller starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, which another JOE writer recently called “absolutely disgusting.”
