Including the return of Bryan Cranston and the ultimate American football showdownMore
A biopic about a 1940's communist screenwriter blacklisted in Hollywood for refusing to give up information to the US government may sound a bit, shall we say, dry?But with the prowess of Bryan Cranston returning as the acerbic, razor-witted Dalton Trumbo, as well as a winning cameo from the enormously popular stand-up comedian and actor Louis CK, this true-life retelling might just cause a fuss at the box office.
Trumbo is in cinemas from 5 February
This season's final American football showdown, which sees the Carolina Panthers face the Denver Broncos in San Francisco, comes with a compelling undercurrent.
Both teams are renowned for their ferocious defenses, but the real story lies behind the contrast of the team's two quarterbacks. In Carolina's corner you have Cam Newton: a swaggering, dynamic superstar in comparison to the measured, veteran arm of Peyton Manning, an NFL legend and former Superbowl champion.
The general consensus is that Manning is over the hill and Carolina will win with ease, but stranger things have happened in sport, especially when a man with Manning's pedigree is in charge.
The Superbowl starts at 11.30 pm on BBC2, 7 February
