Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood Quentin Tarantino gives us his juicy take on 1960s Hollywood and the Manson Family with this sprawling tale starring Leonardo DiCaprio as a fading TV western star, Brad Pitt as his stunt double and best friend, and Margot Robbie as his famous next-door neighbour, Sharon Tate. Shot with Tarantino’s freewheeling flair, the film is bursting with star cameos (look out for Al Pacino, Kurt Russell, Lena Dunham and Damian Lewis), while the story is a leisurely meditation on friendship and the pitfalls and privileges of fame. The Angry Birds Movie 2 Those flightless birds from the addictive video-game series are still spitting feathers in their second animated movie – but this time, hot-headed avian Red (Jason Sudeikis) and his chums on Bird Island have to join forces…

LAST ONE DRAMA Liar Monday, ITV HD, 9pm As twist has followed tantalising twist, the second run of ITV drama Liar has left viewers on the edge of their seats wondering who killed rapist Andrew Earlham.

NEW COMEDY Red Dwarf: The Promised Land Thursday, Dave HD, 9pm Sci-fi sitcom Red Dwarf returns to Dave this week for the first time in over two years with a one-off feature-length special entitled The Promised Land.

NEW ENTERTAINMENT Dynamo: Beyond Belief Thu & Good Fri, Sky One HD, 9pm Three years ago, Dynamo had the world at his feet.
