Irish Cinema Releases Week 23


Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, once the people’s champion, and now it seems the people’s actor. He is in absolutely everything these days and his new film ‘Rampage’ hits the big screens this week. Horror ‘Truth or Dare’ is also on show if your looking for something silly and easy to watch. There are also many great movies still showing and along with Movies@Swords we have all the details you need to know. Enjoy!


Johnson stars as primatologist Davis Okoye, a man who keeps people at a distance but shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, incredibly rare albino silverback gorilla who has been in his care since he rescued the young orphan from poachers. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals. As these newly created alpha predators tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with discredited geneticist Kate Caldwell (Naomie Harris) to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.

Truth Or Dare

Olivia, Lucas and a group of their college friends travel to Mexico for one last getaway before graduation. While there, a stranger convinces one of the students to play a seemingly harmless game of truth or dare with the others. Once the game starts, it awakens something evil, a demon which forces the friends to share dark secrets and confront their deepest fears. The rules are simple but wicked, tell the truth or die, do the dare or die, and if you stop playing, you die.

Florence And The Uffizi Gallery

A Journey into the heart of the Renaissance ‘Florence and the Uffizi Gallery 3D/4K: a journey into the heart of the Renaissance’ is much more than a classic Art documentary: it’s a multi-dimensional, multi-sensory journey into the Italian Renaissance through the most beautiful, representative works of art of the period. For the first time in cinema theaters worldwide comes an art film on the veritable open-air museum that is the city of Florence in which 3D technology ensures a totally immersive, unprecedented viewing experience: works of art speak for themselves with all the power of their extraordinary beauty enhanced by 3D vision. A stimulating “emotional” commentary is given by a major, leading Renaissance figure, our guide Lorenzo the Magnificent, played by Simon Merrells. From a timeless limbo, he takes us through a tour of “his” Florence, the cradle of Renaissance culture, all to the splendid accompaniment of carefully selected music. Also featured are valuable artistic contributions made by experts such as Antonio Natali, the Director of the Uffizi Gallery for almost 10 years; Marco Ciatti, Superintendent of the ‘Opificio delle Pietre Dure’ and Arturo Galansino, Director of Palazzo Strozzi.

Starring: N/A

Run Time: 95 Minutes

Release Date: 18th April

IMDB  Rating: N/A
