If you’d rather binge on a film franchise instead, then you can’t really do any better than the three Back To The Future classics.
Sure, you’ve probably already seen the adventures of Marty McFly and Doc Brown countless times already, but few other trilogies remain as eminently rewatchable.
Boxing Day is all about comfort food, so why not watch a film about comfort food at the same time?
Written and directed by its star Jon Favreau, this labour of love tells the story of a professional chef who quits his high-class restaurant job to head out on the road and serve Cubanos in a food truck.
Sure, there’s not much of a plot, but who cares when there’s such likeable characters, charming natural performances and of course mouth-watering dishes.
Trespass Against Us
Netflix is also premiering one of this year’s most under-rated crime dramas on Boxing Day, Trespass Against Us.
Set in the West Country, Adam Smith’s (Skins, Doctor Who) feature-length directorial debut stars Michael Fassbender as a seasoned thief determined to leave the family criminal business behind, but his father (Brendan Gleeson) has other plans.
Mad Max: Fury Road
We recommended Guardians of the Galaxy 2 for Christmas Day’s big blockbuster, but if you’re after more big-budget thrills and spills on Boxing Day then Mad Max: Fury Road should do the trick.
The post-apocalyptic action movie is a senses-assaulting funhouse ride from start to finish as Charlize Theron’s rebel warrior attempts to return to her homeland with a little help from Tom Hardy’s monosyllabic desert drifter.
