the last panthers

Sky has plenty of new and upcoming shows and films to keep you entertained. Want to know what? Read on.

The Last Panthers

This is a jewel heist caper based on the real-life gang The Pink Panthers, who have stolen millions of pounds' worth of jewels from all over the world.

Samantha Morton plays Naomi, a British loss adjustor charged with recovering the stolen diamonds whatever the cost.

Tom, her nefarious boss, is played by John Hurt, while Tahar Ramin is French-Algerian policeman Khalil, who's in pursuit of the thieves.

It's a Sky original programme – look out for it on Sky Atlantic.

Landscape Artist of the Year 2015

A guilty pleasure, this. Scenic landscapes and gentle humour make it rival 'Antiques Roadshow' for lazy weekend viewing.

Hosts Joan Bakewell and a restrained Frank Skinner preside, while Tai Shan Schierenberg, Kathleen Soriano and Kate Bryan judge to see who will win. Put the kettle on and enjoy.

American Sniper

Clint Eastwood's movie tells the story of Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper), the deadliest sniper in US military history.

Over four gruelling tours of duty in Iraq, Kyle is torn between his loyalty to his country and to his wife (Sienna Miller) and family at home.

Regardless of your politics, this is an unflinching tale told brilliantly.

Birdman

Michael Keaton plays Hollywood has-been Riggan Thompson, who once starred as a superhero known as Birdman (sound familiar?).

Now he's trying to reinvent himself as a serious actor in a highbrow play on Broadway, but his neurosis and chaotic personal life keep intervening.

It's a bit pretentious in parts, but overall it's funny, sharp and brilliantly shot in a series of long takes.

Wild

Reese Witherspoon takes the role of Cheryl Strayed, in a filmed version of her autobiography. Beset by emotional issues, Strayed looks for salvation in a cathartic trek along the Pacific Crest Trail between Mexico and Canada.

The only problem? She has no experience of hiking in the wild. Nick Hornby's script keeps things moving, and 'Dallas Buyers Club' director Jean-Marc Vallee captures the beauty and horror of the great outdoors.
