January 11, 2019 @ 3:19 pm

Happy New Year! It's time for the latest Scannain podcast!

This week, Darren Mooney, Grace Duffy, Ronan Doyle and Jay Coyle discuss the week in film news. As the first podcast we've recorded in three weeks, since the end-of-year spectacular back in December, there is a lot to talk about. And so we do! Everything from T2: Trainspotting to Bird Box to Bandersnatch to The Dead, it's an eclectic selection of films. It includes some of the new releases that we didn't get to cover over the break, including Life Itself and Welcome to Marwen.

There is also understandably a lot of ground to cover. In awards season news, the success of The Favourite at both the Golden Globes and in the BAFTA nominations. The various Oscar-season gossip, including the success of Bohemian Rhapsody, the chaos around Green Book, Kevin Hart's controversy and the decision to go hostless. Closer to home, there was an acknowledgement of James Hickey's decision to step down at the end of his term as head of Screen Ireland and a brief discussion of the Dublin Bowie Festival.

The top ten:

  1. Mary Poppins Returns
  2. Bumblebee
  3. Andre Rieu’s 2019 New Year Concert From Sydney
  4. The Favourite
  5. Aquaman
  6. Wreck-It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet
  7. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
  8. The Grinch
  9. Bohemian Rhapsody
  10. Holmes and Watson
