Reginald The Vampire: Season 1 (Sky Sci-Fi)

But when they learn their estranged wealthy aunt has terminal cancer, they try to win her over in the hopes of becoming beneficiaries of her estate.

In this crime thriller, Colson Baker stars as Freddy, a petty criminal who finds himself in a whole heap of trouble after stealing money from a local mob boss (Drea De Matteo).

In 1800s Paris, the government asks Gustave Eiffel (Romain Duris) to design something spectacular for the 1899 Paris World Fair. He decides to create a tower in the heart of Paris but his creative processes are interrupted when his long-lost lover (Emma Mackey) comes back into his life. This romantic drama is ‘inspired by’ rather than directly based on the true story of the world-famous engineer.
The Last Of Us: Season 1 (Sky Atlantic)
Based on the critically acclaimed video game series of the same name, this apocalyptic thriller stars Pedro Pascal as Joel, a hardened survivor who is hired to smuggle 14-year-old Ellie (Bella Ramsey) out of a quarantine zone.

The Hanging Sun (2022)
Based on the 2015 novel Midnight Sun by Jo Nesbø, this crime drama stars Alessandro Borghi as a hitman on the run from his powerful crime lord father. After taking refuge in an isolated village, he grows close to Lea (Jessica Brown Findlay), a woman with a mysterious past.

Alice (Keke Palmer) is an enslaved woman on a rural Georgia plantation.

Free of her bondage, she vows to release the other plantation captives from the cruel man who kept her as a slave. Disturbingly, this is based on a true story.
Jurassic World: Dominion (2022)
The sixth entry in the Jurassic saga brings the ‘Park’ and ‘World’ generations together for another thrilling adventure. This isn’t the best movie within the franchise but there are some exciting setpieces, and if you have missed seeing Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum in their respective roles, you might enjoy this one for its nostalgic value.
Dear Elizabeth (2020)
Veep actor Tony Hale stars as Sid Straw, an ordinary guy who once knew actress Elizabeth Banks at college.
