It might be a new year, but some things haven’t changed – like the fact that your ultimate entertainment read has arrived once again in the form of Play Magazine! From big interviews and hot tips to your guide to the top telly and film you can look forward to this season, there’s a lot to get through; here’s a handful of reasons to dive in!



Rosie is one of the most talked about Irish films of the decade, and ahead of its arrival on Virgin Movies we caught the people behind the powerful drama. Leading lady Sarah Greene, the magnificent Moe Dunford and director Paddy Breathnach discuss Roddy Doyle’s script, working with children, and the pressure of bringing such an emotional tale to life.



Anticipation for the Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival is reaching fever pitch – and you’d better believe we’re excited! From a guide to the movies that will tickle your fancy to a chat with festival head honcho Grainne Humphreys, we’re helping you get ready for the fair city’s feast of film! 



The pinnacle of the horse racing year is approaching at Cheltenham – and it’s just one of the sporting spectaculars to look forward to in the weeks ahead! We chat to Shane Horgan on the eve of the Six Nations, preview the crunch ties in the UEFA Champions League and Europa League, and plan out the busiest sporting week of the year in the lead-up to St Patrick’s Day – grab your diary and get planning!



The big-name interviews don’t stop coming as we catch up with John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman to discuss the hilarious Ralph Breaks The Internet. Considerably less jovial – but no less wonderful! – is the new blockbuster series The Passage, and we wag chins with star Mark-Paul Gosselaar to find out more about the dystopian zombie thriller.



Whether it’s the newest Netflix sensations, your returning favourites, or brand new arrivals for 2019, you won’t miss a trick! We also run down the podcasts set to create a buzz this season, the magnificent music movies to get your toes a-tappin’, and the characters to curl up to this Valentine’s Day – what more could you ask for?!
