Furthermore, Liv Tyler plays a Catholic recusant, Tom Cullen is the infamous Guy Fawkes, and Peter Mullan is a co-conspirator.


Thor – Film4, 20:00

Everybody knows the story of Thor, a mythical God from Asgard. This is a great adaptation and a start of the long series of Thor movies. Jeff Goldblum is Thor, cast away from Asgard by his father Odin to live among humans where he meets Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). A great, fun, and touching movie. Don’t miss it.


Die Hard – E4, 20:00
