The big, big movies: Donald Clarke’s guide to the new flicks you’re going to see between now and the end of the year

Diana: Naomi Watts on turning herself into a princess

No Age: Dean Spunt on the band’s DIY approach to new album “An Object”

Chvrches: why frontwoman Lauren Mayberry is finding a career in electronic pop more appealing than her original backgound in journalism

Movie Bites: join us for some croissants and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Note that the uber-classy Audrey Hepburn nibbled croissiants not cronuts.

Plus CD reviews (including Janelle Monae, London Grammar, Clannad, Empire Circus, Kenny Wheeler, The Weeknd, Ultan Conlon, Troubadour Rose, Fred Hersch & Julian Lage etc), film reviews (The Call, Cold Comes The Night, Diana, In Real Life, Kelly & Victor, Metro Maila, Black Ice, RIPD), games, apps, listings, movie quiz, news and much, much more.

That’s your winning Ticket in The Irish Times today in print, online and the best of The Ticket on the app.

The OTR plugs service is now open for business. Please feel free to plug and recommend stuff away to your heart’s content, but remember some simple rules: (a) declare an interest where one should be declared, (b) plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense and (c) plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. Dublin v Mayo? Your guess is as good as mine
