Hollywood’s best and brightest tell us their Desert Island Flicks

See what they chose

You’re stranded on a desert island but the cinema gods have smiled on you and you get to choose one film to keep you entertained - what do you choose? Would you rather have a comedy or a long, drawn-out epic? A survival guide like Castaway or something from the Die Hard canon to keep the adrenaline pumping?
