Here are a few options for weekend watching – and a competition in association with the Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival.
EVERY THURSDAY EVENING, we bring you three trailers for films that are out this weekend.
The films might be on streaming services, or on television.
But before we get to the trailers this week, we have something very exciting for you – the chance for one lucky reader to win tickets to watch the opening and closing gala films at the Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival. The festival runs from 3 – 14 March online and you can find the full programme here.
The opening gala this year is Supernova, starring Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci as a couple who have been together for two decades, but who find themselves having to deal with early-onset dementia.
The closing gala for 2021 is Deadly Cuts, directed by Rachel Carey. The film is about a hair salon on the northside of Dublin where the staff end up being accidental vigilantes.
To be in with a chance of winning a ticket to view both of these, tell us:
