Anna Foerster directs this action-horror, the latest instalment in the Underworld series, following Selene (Kate Beckinsale) as she is caught in the midst of the unending conflict between the Lycan and Vampire factions. The Lycans are preparing to mount a terrible and final war against the Vampires, intent on completely destroying them. At the head of this force there is an ambitious leader named Marius (Tobias Menzies) who intends to harvest the blood of Selene, a pure Vampire, to achieve unrivalled power. Selene and her allies must find a way to stop Marius if they are to have any chance of survival. To this end, Thomas (Charles Dance) sends Selene north to uncover a power that may save them from destruction, but time is running out, as the power her blood offers is desired by the Vampires too. The cast also features Theo James, Lara Pulver and Trent Garrett.
Two-part mini-series adapted by Alan Sharp from the 1880 novel by Lew Wallace, originally adapted for the screen in 1959 as the Charlton Heston-starring classic. Joseph Morgan stars in this version as Prince Judah Ben-Hur, the young Jewish prince and charioteer whose refusal to capitulate to the occupying Roman forces leads to his family being torn apart. After the Roman invasion of Jerusalem, Ben-Hur's best friend Octavius Messala (Stephen Campbell Moore) turns against him, imprisoning his mother and sister and forcing Ben-Hur into slavery. He manages to escape, however, and returns to seek revenge against his former friend in a deadly chariot race.

The story of the 1879 battle of Isandlhwana, one of the worst defeats in British colonial history, 'Zulu Dawn' describes the diplomatic errors and ill-advised military decisions which led to a confrontation between 1,500 British soldiers and a 25,000 strong Zulu army. A prequel to the 1963 classic (and schoolboy's favourite) 'Zulu', the emphasis is again placed upon huge, awe-inspiring battle scenes and the brave stand the soldiers take against unsurmountable odds.
Triple bill of films based on the Helen Fielding novels. 'Bridget Jones's Diary' (2001) introduces Bridget (Renée Zellweger), the 1990s British everywoman: single, weight-obsessed, and very probably drunk on mid-price white wine. Her life goes from middling to worse when she embarks on a doomed affair with silver-tongued boss Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant). In the background lurks Mark Darcy (Colin Firth), a seemingly cold lawyer who keeps crossing Bridget's path but whose precise intentions seem hard for her to divine. All the while Bridget records her lurches across life's highway in the eponymous diary, as an attempt to take control of her life. In 'Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason' (2004), having finally found the perfect man in lawyer Mark Darcy, 30-something ex-singleton Bridget is now faced with the even bigger challenge of keeping him. When her self-doubts return and her womanising ex-lover Daniel Cleaver reappears uninvited, Bridget gets entangled in a comic mix of bad advice, miscommunications and total disasters that could only happen to her. Finally, in 'Bridget Jones's Baby' (2016), following her break-up with Mark Darcy, Bridget decides to focus on her career as a top news producer while also attempting to enjoy the single life with friends. Her love life takes another turn when she meets suave American Jack Qwant (Patrick Dempsey), who helps her out after getting into a spot of bother at a music festival. With a new relationship flourishing and everything seemingly under control, it's not long before there's a hitch - she discovers she's pregnant. Unsure if the father is long-term love interest Darcy, or newcomer Qwant, Bridget is yet again faced with making some awkward and ultimately life-changing decisions.
