What’s New in Movies, From Film Riot’s Ryan Connolly
Revision3, the leading Internet Television network, today announced the addition of a new and original show, Film State, to its network of more than 20 programs. The show, hosted and created by Film Riot’s Ryan Connolly, offers a fun and laid-back, yet fast paced look, at the latest movie trailers, rumors and news.
Film State is the movie news show for the Internet generation. Honest, smart, irreverent, concise, and authentic (did we mention Ryan is an actual filmmaker?), the show cuts through all the movie clutter to bring viewers the only news and entertainment tidbits they really need to care about.
“Film State is something that I have been wanting to do for a while now”, said Ryan Connolly. “When I was younger I used to love watching a show called ‘Coming Soon’. Since that show went off air there hasn’t really been anything up to par. Hopefully Film State will bring that, plus our sense of humor, to the fellow movie lovers out there.”
Each Tuesday, Ryan will geek out on everything from entertainment and box office news, to the most talked about trailers, and what’s new in theaters and on DVD. Ryan is on a personal mission to make sure no one wastes another hard earned dollar on a bad movie again.
“We are incredibly excited to continue our relationship with Ryan Connolly,” said Ryan Vance, vice president of programming and production, Revision3. “Ryan’s success with Film Riot has proven that he is an extremely knowledgeable and entertaining source of movie information and insight. We look forward to watching Film State evolve and grow as part of Revision3.”
FILM STATE airs each Tuesday and will run approximately 10-12 minutes in length. More information can be found at www.revision3.com/filmstate
