Super Bowl Sunday, don’t you know.

You might well be staying up to watch the Rams and Patriots do battle.

You might have no love whatsoever for American football.

In any event, there’s a rake of movies on the television between now – and even during – then on this Sunday 3 February, so let’s run ’em down, shall we?

Because it’s not just for Christmas.

The Ghost – ITV4 – 11pm

Ewan McGregor plays a ghostwriter hired to finish the autobiography of Pierce Brosnan’s former UK Prime Minister, a job he takes on despite some dark omens of what’s to come.
