Shot over three days and on a modest budget, Animolisa is a stop-action film that is set to change the way animation is viewed.

Co-written and directed by Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind), the filmcentres on a lonely middle aged man who meets an ex - and a possible future - lover on an overnight business trip, resulting in a frank, witty, and melancholic journey into the mundane, all played out by puppets.

Animolisa is released 11 March

2 | Will Arnett's hip California comedy: Flaked

Fans of the much-missed Arrested Development will remember Will Arnett's brilliantly goofy performance as the deluded magician Gob.

Now he returns in Flaked, a funny, bittersweet series he co-wrote, produced and stars in, taking the role of Chip, an eternal optimist trying to navigate the first-world trials and tribulations of sun-drenched California.

Flaked is on Netflix from 11 March

3 | Black magic horror: The Witch

Foregoing cheap horror tropes for a constant, pervasive sense of unease, The Witch is a lesson in atmospheric, tense cinema.

Set in the bleak wilderness of 1630's New England, a family suspects it has come under the influence of black magic and witchcraft, resulting in devastating consequences. 

It also feature's film's scariest ever goat.

The Witch is in cinemas from 11 March

4 | Only you can save New York: Tom Clancy's The Division

Having fallen behind other big budget shooter series like Call of Duty and Battelfront in recent years, the Tom Clancy brand is making an apocalyptic comeback with The Division.

Players take the role of a special agent battling to save New York after a mysterious smallpox virus sends it into chaos and ruin; with special features including a dynamic weather system and the ability to team up with friends online.

The Division is released 8 March on PS4 and Xbox One

5 | A return to the Renaissance: Botticelli Reimagined at the V&A

More than just a straight-forward retrospection, the V&A's exhibition of the works of Florentine master Sandro Botticelli examines both his art (over 40 paintings on show) and the way the Renaissance man influenced both modern art and culture, including Andy Warhol and Dolce & Gabbana.

Yes it's all very highbrow, but an afternoon away from Netflix is a good thing ...sometimes.

Botticelli Reimagined is at the V&A from12 March - 3 July
