Portlandia ImageNetflix Ireland adds new titles to its catalogue on a regular basis. Over the next few days they’ll be adding a bunch of new films and TV shows:

Magic Mike  (Coming 9 May)
Magic Mike is a 2012 comedy-drama film directed by Steven Soderbergh.  The plot revolves around Adam (Alex Pettyfer), a nineteen-year-old who enters the world of male stripping, guided by Mike Lane (Channing Tatum), who has been in the business for six years.   Mike Lane teaches the younger performer how to party, pick up women, and make easy money. The film also stars Matthew McConaughey as Dallas, the owner of the club.

Eat, Pray, Love  (Coming 7 May)
Eat Pray Love is a 2010 drama film starring Julia Roberts as Elizabeth Gilbert, based on Gilbert’s best-selling memoir of the same name.  A married woman realizes how unhappy her marriage really is, and that her life needs to go in a different direction. After a painful divorce, she takes off on a round-the-world journey to “find herself”

Friends with Kids
Best friends Jason and Julie decide that the way to have kids without sacrificing their social lives or careers is to raise a child together platonically. But romance and other complications interfere with their perfect plan. (Stars Chris O’Dowd)

Killing Bono
Dublin schoolboy Neil McCormick is determined to be one of the great rock stars of the 1980s, and is so confident he’ll succeed that he prevents his brother from joining a band being formed by a classmate — a band called U2.  Stars Robert Sheehan and Ben Barnes.

Veronica Guerin
Director Joel Schumacher’s brisk thriller stars Cate Blanchett as unrelenting Irish journalist Veronica Guerin, whose single-minded investigation of Dublin’s underground drug trade gives rise to shocking consequences.

War of the Worlds

Borgia (Season 2)
The name Borgia stands for betrayal, intrigue and corruption in the Vatican, which was the centre of the world during the Renaissance. Rodrigo Borgia — later Pope Alexander VI — embodied the spirit of the time with its unimaginable contradictions.

Portlandia  (Season 3)
Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein send up the righteous, artistically inclined and 100% organic residents of Portland, Ore., in this sketch-based comedy series. Typical targets include artisanal light bulbs, feminist bookstores and indie rock.

    “The plot revolves around Adam (Channing Tatum), a nineteen-year-old who enters the world of male stripping, guided by Mike Lane (Matthew McConaughey)” You’ve your actors and roles a bit mixed-up: Adam is played by Alex Pettifer while Channing Tatum is the titular Magic Mike!
