What films are on TV this New Year’s Day?


Crazy Rich Asians and Harry Potter are among the film highlights on New Year’s Day.

After wishing 2023 a boozy farewell, the TV schedules are loaded with films to help ease you into the new year.

Highlights include Ridley Scott’s Gladiator, which is set to receive a sequel starring Paul Mescal later this year. For something lighter, there’s Crazy Rich Asians on BBC Three and Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone on ITV2.

Elsewhere, Liam Neeson action flick The Commuter is on Sky Showcase, while the 2020 remake of The Witches starring Anne Hathaway is on BBC One.
