In Irish cinemas November 6th

It's a week of drama with the likes of Brooklyn starring Saoirse Ronan in cinemas, and of course there are also some zombies

In the wake of the gigantic release of Spectre the box office is still reeling, with a number of smaller and alternative releases in cinemas. That includes the Irish-American drama Brooklyn starring Saoirse Ronan as well as a weird look at the music industry in Kill Your Friends. Plus there Scouts' Guide to the Zombie Apocalpyse, because you asked for it.


Saoirse Ronan stars as a young Irish woman who tries to find a new life in America in the 1950s but when a series of events bring her back home she is torn between old country and new. Based on Colm Toibin's novel and directed by John Crowley.


Bradley Cooper, the fellow with all the Oscar nominations all of a sudden, is back and he's playing a totally insane chef in this drama from August Osage County director John Wells. Also starring Sienna Miller, Daniel Bruhl, Alicia Vikander and Uma Thurman.

Kill Your Friends

Nicholas Hoult gets his American Psycho on in this look at the London music scene in the 1990s, based on John Niven's novel. It's looking like a particularly salacious film (with an 18s rating) so maybe check out a red band trailer before you go. Also starring James Corden, Ed Skrein, Craig Roberts and Rosanna Arquette.

Scouts' Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse

When the dead begin to rise and the world seems headed for the end of days, you know you can rely on a group of highly trained Scouts to find a way to survive! This looks like a lot of silly fun, and early reviews have been positive. Why not get in the halloween mood, post halloween...
