PICK OF THE FLICKS 7 TO WATCH.
MONDAY: Where The Wild Things Are (Sky Movies Premiere, 5.30pm). Maurice Sendak's classic children's story about Max, who journeys to a wonderful land full of wild creatures, is brought to life in magical style. It might be too deep and scary for young kids, though.
TUESDAY: The Hoax (BBC1, 11.15pm). In an amazing true story, Richard Gere sells the bogus biography of Howard Hughes to a publishers having made it all up. Alfred Molina is entertaining.
WEDNESDAY: Shrek The Third (BBC3, 8pm). Shrek (Mike Myers) doesn't want to be the new king of Far, Far Away, so he goes in search of relative Artie (Justin Timberlake).
Meanwhile, Prince Charming (Rupert Everett) makes a bid for the throne.
THURSDAY: The Punisher (Five, 10pm). Thomas Jane is FBI agent Frank Castle, whose whole family is massacred by John Travolta so he doles out a savage punishment in return.
FRIDAY: Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (Sky Movies Premiere, 8pm). Snakes alive! Uma Thurman (pictured) has fun playing serpent-haired Medusa in this action adventure based on Greek myths, starring Logan Lerman, Pierce Brosnan, Sean Bean and Steve Coogan.
SATURDAY: Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (Channel 4, 7pm). The comic book sequel sees the heroes discovering they aren't the only superpowered beings in the universe.
