As Good As It Gets?

What is it? A documentary about rugby league side Leeds Rhinos narrated by Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter (or at least, the actor that played him). As Good As It Gets? promises a gripping look at the team's ‘Golden Generation’, and their 2015 battle for a historic treble.

Matthew Lewis - long term Rhinos fan - narrates, and those in Leeds get a chance to see the film on the big screen over the early May bank holiday.

You Are Wanted

What is it? The German cyber-thriller returns to Prime for a second series, once again following the story of Lukas Franke. In the first series, Franke found himself a victim of a hacking attack, his information altered to frame him as the masterminded behind a Berlin-wide blackout.

He's still struggling to prove his innocence, and with the authorities on his case and suspecting him to be a terrorist, the young hotel manager must go on the run from the head of the U.S. Cyber Command.
