Film show Moviejuice returns to STV this month

Tagged in: Press Releases
STV’s movie man Grant Lauchlan returns with the sixth series of popular film review show Moviejuice on Friday 13th February at 2000. 
 
Over eight weeks, ratings winner Moviejuice, sponsored by Buchanan's of Scotland will feature reviews, previews and news 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.
 
The programme will see Grant interview some of the biggest names in film and run for eight episodes on Fridays from 13th February until 10th April.* 

The new series will launch with Fifty Shades of Grey – one of the most anticipated movie releases of the year.  During the series Grant will also be chatting to Hugh Jackman and Sigourney Weaver about their sci-fi adventure Chappie.  Other films to be featured include The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel starring Dame Judi Dench and Dame Maggie Smith; Cake starring Jennifer Anniston and John Wick starring Keanu Reeves.

Last year Moviejuice, the UK’s only terrestrial peak-time movie review show, was watched by over 1.6 million Scots across the series.  Moviejuice has 3.5 times the audience of Film 2014 on BBC One.

Brand new city TV channels, STV Glasgow and STV Edinburgh, will also air a local version of Moviejuice on Monday evenings from 16th February at 2100 and repeated the following Monday at 1500. 

Grant Lauchlan, Moviejuice presenter, said: “We’re really excited about starting the new season of Moviejuice.  We kick things off with Fifty Shades of Grey. There hasn’t been any advanced screenings for critics yet so it’ll be interesting to discover if it’s any good or if it’ll be one big anti-climax. But I’m sure it’s critic proof. I know thousands of advanced tickets have already been sold at cinemas across Scotland.”
 
Elizabeth Partyka, deputy director of channels at STV, said: “A new series of Moviejuice is a great way to complement the nation’s love of cinema.  We are thrilled to bring viewers all the latest news and reviews with another series of Moviejuice.”
