Christmas Day has been and gone, which means that most of the UK is still trying to recuperate after the delights of last night’s Christmas dinner.

Thankfully Boxing Day provides us with a chance to adopt the recovery position in front of some quality TV and this year is no different.

There’s been a wide array of fantastic films shown over the Christmas period, and Boxing Day too is set to bring with it plenty of movies worth watching.

Here are just a few of the highlights…

What films are on TV this Boxing Day?

The Boss Baby

In this family-friendly feature, a seven-year-old boy discovers that his new baby brother has the mind (and sass) of a grown-up.

The Jungle Book

This live-action reworking of the 1967 Disney favourite – based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s book – features lots of familiar voices, including Ben Kingsley, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson and Idris Elba.

BBC One, 3.45pm

Paddington 2

The first Paddington film was heartwarming enough to heat a small town, and the sequel – which sees Hugh Grant play the flamboyant villain Phoenix Buchanan – very much lives up to its predecessor.

Avengers: Endgame

Only the Biggest Film Of All Time, Avengers: Endgame outshone previous record-holder Avatar at the all-time box office earlier this year and as the epic conclusion to the MCU’s phase three, it’s not hard to imagine why.

Sky Cinema, 8pm


This other billion-dollar hit stars Daniel Craig as the one and only James Bond and Javier Bardem as the villain in this edgy and thrilling caper.
