Tonight, after many years off the small screen, a Movie Show is finally back on our screens.
The Movie Show, hosted by Celebrity Bainisteoir’s Mairead Farrell and The Voice of Ireland’s Eoghan McDermott starts tonight on RTE2.
According to The Movie Show’s website (www.rte.ie/tv/themovieshow), “the show plans to dissect ‘the good, the bad and the ugly’ of all things tinseltown… It will be 30 minutes of the wonderful world of movies with interviews,reviews, behind-the-scenes footage and sneak-peaks of all the latest blockbuster films.”
Both presenters are excited about the new show. According to rte.ie/ten, McDermott said, “I’m completely excited and delighted to be working on The Movie Show with Mairéad. Not only do we have the dream job of watching new films and chatting with exceptional acting talent, but we’ll be giving the great people of Ireland rare and exclusive insights into life behind the camera on all sorts of exciting productions. And I fancy Mairéad. Result!”
“Farrell added: “I am thrilled to be part of The Movie Show. There’s nothing nicer than getting that bucket of buttery popcorn and heading into the cinema – for the next two hours you can just escape reality! Plus this show gives me a really good excuse to go see cheesy rom coms. ‘I have to honey, it’s for work!’.”
Joining the co-hosts will be reporters, Angela Scanlon, Rob Ross, and Daniella Moyles, and movie reviewers Louise Heraghty, Eoghan Doherty and Karla Zambra.
Tonight’s episode features a catch up with Daniel Craig and comedian, turned actor, Ross Noble. A great way to kick off the 16 week season!
Ireland, has one of the highest movie going countries, per capita, in the world, so it is good to see that movie goers can once again have their own show. Good luck to all involved!
The Movie Show airs on RTE 2 Thursdays at 9pm.
