Movie News - Saturday February 24th

The latest on James Bond 25 - Daniel Craig has signed on but what about a director? Disney have found a director for the live-action re-imagining of Pinocchio and we have a new director for The Galway Fleadh. Plus a new science fiction project for Alex Garland, and new releases with Garret Daly.

Saturday December 15th

This afternoon Aedín includes the beautiful score from Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence by Ryuichi Sakamoto as well as the Oscar-winning score from Atonement by Dario Marianelli. A little French film music from Betty Blue and Amélie plus classic film music from King Kong and Sunset Boulevard. And from the world of musicals, favourite songs from South Pacific, Showboat, Guys and Dolls, Follies, Hamilton and Avenue Q. 

Saturday December 23rd

Christmas means movies so join Aedín for a seasonal soundtrack of songs and music from classic Christmas movies. We may not be dreaming of a White Christmas but with any luck, we won't be Home Alone as we welcome Willy Wonka, Dorothy and a very special Elf in to enjoy a Wonderful Life. Elf hats and tinsel optional!

Garret Daly also joins us for special festive Movie News and we celebrate the release of the much anticipated Mary Poppins Returns as Aedín chats to director Rob Marshall, stars Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw and Emily Mortimer, and the composer and lyricist Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman.
