Action trilogy for Bruce WIllis and an honour for Dame Julie

Garret Daly has the latest Movie News including a Tom Hanks movie to be released on Apple, Bruce Wills leads an action trilogy and Julie Andrews to be honoured later in the year.

Saturday June 19th

Music from three films directed by Stephen Frears ahead of his 80th birthday, Dangerous Liaisons, Philomena and The Queen. Plus a queen of the game of chess; Anya Taylor-Joy in both The Queen's Gambit and the 2020 screen adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma scored by Isobel Waller-Bridge. Aedín also celebrates the star of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mary Poppins Dick Van Dyke, who at 95 years of age has enjoyed an award-winning career that has spanned seven decades. We'll also take a first listen to the soundtrack of In the Heights, by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Saturday June 26th

Songs from Hamilton, In the Heights, When Harry met Sally, The King and I and Top Hat this afternoon, and impressive film scores from The English Patient, Mystic River, Betty Blue, Iris and North by Northwest. Aedín also features numbers featuring lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green who were paired together longer than any other writing team in the history of Broadway, working with Leonard Bernstein on the musicals Wonderful Town and On the Town.
