Film show Moviejuice returns to STV this autumn

Tagged in: Press Releases
STV’s movie man Grant Lauchlan returns this month with a brand new series of the popular film review show Moviejuice.

On Friday 26th October, the series will launch with a Moviejuice Skyfall special taking a look at the latest James Bond blockbuster. As the Bond franchise celebrates its 50th Anniversary, Grant catches up with the stars of the 23rd 007 adventure - Daniel Craig, Judi Dench and Javier Bardem, as well as its Oscar winning director Sam Mendes.

Over nine weeks, ratings winner Moviejuice, sponsored by Buchanan's of Scotland, will feature news, views and reviews of the latest cinema releases. Grant will be joined by some of Scotland’s top film critics, to give viewers an indispensable guide on what to watch - and what not to watch.

Films to be featured in the new series include the much anticipated Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2, Great Expectations and the big Christmas release of 2012 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.  For film fans who prefer to watch movies from the comfort of their own home, don’t miss the show’s weekly rundown of the very best DVD and Blu-ray releases.

The last series of Moviejuice, the UK’s only terrestrial peak-time movie review show, was watched by 1.8 million Scots throughout its 14 episode run.

Grant said: “We’re really excited about starting the new season of Moviejuice with a Bondtastic Skyfall special.  There are some brilliant films coming over the next few months and of course we can’t wait to bring our viewers all the latest film news and reviews as well as the inside scoop from Hollywood’s biggest stars. We’ve got some fantastic interviews lined up. Stay tuned!”

Elizabeth Partyka, deputy director of channels at STV, said: “Moviejuice is a firm favourite with STV viewers and the show is a welcome addition to STV’s autumn schedule. The entertaining mix of reviews and film features makes the show a must see for all film lovers across the country.”
