Better use of his resources

Watch ‘Iron Man’ on Sony Pix at 11 pm on July 26. When playboy and engineering genius Tony Stark travels to Afghanistan to demonstrate a new missile, he is captured and wounded, with his captors insisting he assemble a new weapon for them.

Instead, Tony chooses a different option — he creates an armoured suit and escapes. When he gets home, he makes an even more drastic decision by deciding to stop manufacturing weapons. Instead, he works on another armoured suit.  Catch the film to find out what Tony uses his newly-acquired secret for. It stars Robert Downey Jr, Terrence Howard, Jeff Bridges, Gwyneth Paltrow and Leslie Bibb.

Not the right role model

What does it take to be a good teacher? This is exactly what gold-digger Elizabeth Halsey tries to figure out when she returns to middle-school after her wealthy fiance breaks off their engagement. Although she’s terrible at her job, she is determined to save up for plastic surgery. When she meets a new teacher called Scott — who she finds out is pretty rich — things take a turn for the better.

But her pursuit of him isn’t unchallenged — the cheery Amy is also after him and tries to dig up dirt on Elizabeth. Catch ‘Bad Teacher’ on Star Movies at 7.03 pm on July 26. It stars Cameron Diaz, Lucy Punch, Jason Segel, Justin Timberlake and Phyllis Smith.

A global force

Watch ‘Crossing Lines’ on AXN at 10 pm on July 26. Set in exciting and exotic locations, ‘Crossing Lines’ taps into the charter of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to mandate a special crime unit.

This unit will investigate serialised crimes that cross over borders, hunt down criminals and bring them to justice — in other words, a global FBI is born.  Tune in to the show for a hard-hitting dose of acting.

A job gone wrong

Tune in to ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ on Zee Studio at 9 pm on July 26. Matthew McConaughey stars in this legal thriller as a low-rent defence attorney named Mickey Haller. Most of the time, Mickey barely keeps his head above water, representing low-life clients and working out of the back of his car.

He thinks he’s landed the case of a lifetime when he’s hired to defend a rich playboy, who stands accused of rape and attempted murder, and eagerly accepts his new client and the massive payoff that’s sure to come with him. But Mickey soon discovers that he’s become ensnared in a twisted plot and his only hope of survival are his own skills as a double-crosser. The film also stars Marisa Tomei, Ryan Phillippe, William H Macy, Josh Lucas, John Leguizamo and Michael Peña.
