ABC’s The Walking Dead
The Leo-starring version of The Great Gatsby
Another DiCaprio modern classic, The Oscar-winning The Wolf of Wall Street
TV smash hit fantasy series, Game of Thrones
South African sci-fi favourite District 9
Multiple Oscar-winner, Gravity.

Two Face from The Dark Knight
The Avengers from Marvel Studios
HBO’s ever-brilliant Boardwalk Empire
Alice in Wonderland
Oz – The Great and Powerful
