Watch The UK Trailer For Stephen Frear's Philomena

No comments: Links to this post

Whilst we know all about  Steve Coogan's comedy talents many may not know of his versatility and deliver something serious as well as dramatic, this November we will see that side of Coogan we don't see much off. This afternoon we will get a glimpse of his dramatic chops when we enjoy the UK trailer for Philomena.

Starring  Dame Judi Dench, Philomena  is a tragic true tale set in 1950′s Ireland  of Philomena Lee (Dench) who falls pregnant giving birth to a boy in a Catholic home for unmarried mothers. Years later she is forced to give up her child and has  to become a nun made to sign a declaration not to ever look  for her Son.Years later now living in UK with help from local news reporter Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan) to hunt her son down.

Whilst Look Of Love (and What Maisie Knew out this month)gave us a insight to what Coogan to offer, Philomena  is also co-written by Coogan which has even sparked Oscar talk, especially as this film has the emotion levels the Academy love. What mustn't forget  Judi Dench looks like she'll deliver deeply moving and powerful, if your looking for something with humour, Coogan told Variety....

"The film is a comic tragedy or a tragic comedy,It's about two very different people, at different stages of their lives, who help each other and show that there is laughter even in the darkest places."

Philomena arrives in UK on 1st November 2013.


Judi Dench and Steve Coogan play unlikely friends in PHILOMENA, the moving, funny and at times shocking true story of one woman’s search for a lost son.

Directed by BAFTA winner Stephen Frears (The Queen), PHILOMENA will open in the UK and Ireland on 1 November 2013.

Falling pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena was sent to the convent of Roscrea to be looked after as a “fallen woman”. When her baby was only a toddler, he was taken away by the nuns for adoption in America. Philomena spent the next fifty years searching for him but with no success.

Then she met Martin Sixsmith, a world-weary political journalist who happened to be intrigued by her story. Together they set off to America on a journey that would not only reveal the extraordinary story of Philomena’s son, but also create an unexpectedly close bond between Philomena and Martin.

The film is a compelling narrative of human love and loss that ultimately celebrates life, showing that there is laughter even in the darkest places.

Sixsmith’s book "The Lost Child Of Philomena Lee" was published in 2009. It acted as a catalyst for thousands of adopted Irish children and their ‘shamed’ mothers to come forward to tell their stories. Many are still searching for their lost families.

Watch The Exquisite UK Trailer For Terrence Malick’s To The Wonder

No comments: Links to this post

Last Year's Tree Of Life divided opinions at The People's Movies and Cinehouse but one thing we all agreed on was the visual aesthetics of the film were sublime.If you were expecting the reclusive film maker to wait another few years before he makes the follow up you will be amazed to know in exactly 2 months time To The Wonder will be released and this afternoon we have the first official trailer.

The Guardian have the pleasure of introducing the world exclusive of To The Wonder's UK trailer which made it's world première at this year's Venice Film Festival and like the director's previous film received an hostile reception, why we don't know.This is a powerful strong first look at the film with plenty of trademark Terrence Malick styling's on show to admire, sweeping shots with the beautiful cinematography shot by the ultra-talented Emmanuel Lubezki. It's bleak, wonderfully chosen score and the typical Malick voiceover coming from Javier Bardem who plays the priest who questions his faith.

To The Wonder is an romantic drama of Neil an man (Ben Affleck) who moves back to USA from France bringing with him his new love Marina (Olga Kurylenko). Once back home in Oklahoma he renews his ties with old school flame Jane (Rachel McAdams) sparking off a love triangle. The film will like any of previous Malick films will have fans and critics debating the pros as well as cons of To The Wonder but whatever your views on the film maker it will be a rare visual treat that has no CGI or ridiculous stunts just something intelligent to enjoy.

To The Wonder will arrive in UK&Ireland 22nd February 2013 with USA release 12th April 2013.

TO THE WONDER, written and directed by Terrence Malick, is a romantic drama centered on Neil, a man who is torn between two loves: Marina, the European woman who came to United States to be with him, and Jane, the old flame he reconnects with from his hometown. In TO THE WONDER, Malick explores how love and its many phases and seasons passion, sympathy, obligation, sorrow, indecision can transform, destroy, and reinvent lives.


Watch The Official UK Trailer For Zaytoun Starring Stephen Dorff

No comments: Links to this post
This boxing day one of the surprise hits of this year's London Film Festival Zaytoun will be released in UK&Ireland cinematically and the film's official UK trailer has arrived online.

Starring Stephen Dorff who plays a Israeli fighter pilot Yoni who finds himself a captive to a young Palestinian refugee boy in war torn Lebanon. Yoni forms a tentative bond with the boy Fahed (Abdallah El Akal) as the pair attempt to make their way home.

With the film set in Beirut 1982 there is an extra surge of tension with it been set 30 years ago despite the fact things in the Middle East sadly haven't changed much though you could say with the recent struggles things are a lot worse. The question is,the subject of a balance between entertainment and possibly your knowledge of the war or even what view you have on what's going on in that part of the world. I haven't seen the film so a lot of  what i'm reading up on the film is from previous articles, reviews and things like compassion between 2 people from areas that have grown up hating each other can bond together in order to survive. There is a big Waltz With Bashir feel to this film and it's a film which should spark some rather intriguing debate on how you see the whole Israeli / Middle East fiasco. It will  also be interesting to see as the film's director Eran Riklis an ex-Israeli military how balance or even imbalanced Zaytoun might be.On an acting front this film sounds like another piece of evidence proving Stephen Dorff does possess some good acting chops but why doesn't he make more of these movies and get the credit he deserves?

Zaytoun will be released by Artificial Eye films on 26 December and also stars Alice Taglioni, Ashraf Barhom.

When the blood begins to flow, who will be left to scream. Exploitation Flick Dear God No! Coming to UK DVD

No comments: Links to this post

MONSTER PICTURES present “DEAR GOD NO!”, a twisted fairy tale for beer drinkers and hell-raisers, released on DVD on 14 January 2013

“Dear God No!” is a tribute to a lost regional drive-in film from 1976 that doesn’t rely heavily on computer gimmicks, and cuts to the core of what made these low-budget films shockingly fun. Shot entirely on SUPER 16MM Fuji film and using equipment from the era, Dear God No! is a drive-in & grindhouse lovers dream. No pretty actors- just a rocking original soundtrack, bikers, babes and blood, and as many naked breasts as the script would allow.

Outlaw motorcycle gang The Impalers tri-state rape and murder spree ended in a bloody massacre with rival club Satan’s Own. The surviving members sought refuge in a secluded cabin deep in the North Georgia mountains. What first must of seemed like easy prey for a home invasion, became a living nightmare of depravity and violence. A young innocent girl being held captive may hold the key to the twisted secrets locked in the basement and the killing machine feasting on human flesh in the forest outside.

“Dear God No!” is a brand new biker/horror/sexploitation feature written & directed by exploitation aficionado James Bickert, released on DVD in the UK by Monster Pictures UK on 14 January 2013.

Watch UK Trailer For Untouchable Starring François Cluzet, Omar Sy

No comments: Links to this post
There seems to be something that's been added to the French water supply the past couple of years as they seem create some extra ordinary feel good films. Last year it was The Artist and later this month we might just have the second one, Untouchable and tonight we've been sent the film's UK trailer. Starring François Cluzet (Little White Lies), Omar Sy (Micmacs) a film that's boasting worldwide box office sales, out grossing the likes of Harry Potter, Titanic, Marvel’s The Avengers in certain parts of the world making it France's second biggest box office hit of all time.Surprise surprise Bob and Harvey Weinstein just happen to be the films executive producers just like The Artist!

The film tells the story of an unlikely friendship between a disabled millionaire (François Cluzet) and his street smart ex-con caretaker (Omar Sy). The pair who, on the surface, seem to have nothing in common find a camaraderie rooted in honesty and humour in one of the must-see films of 2012.
Directed by Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache and also starring Audrey Fleurot (‘Spiral’), the film was nominated for a total of nine 2012 César Awards, France’s equivalent to the Oscars, including Best Picture, and won Best Actor for breakout star Omar Sy. The film also won the Grand Prix award at the 2011 Tokyo International Film Festival. UNTOUCHABLE has received Audience Awards from U.S film festivals including San Francisco Film Festival, COL COA and the Nashville Film Festival.

With massive box office sales I would not at all be surprise if this one picks up even more awards, maybe Oscars? Who knows! No one expected The Artist to do so well until the awards season kicked off and we know the rest is history. The biggest winner from this film could be its star Omar Sy which could see him get some bigger roles not just in his homeland of France possibly Hollywood!

Untouchable will get a limited release on September 21st in London, with the film going on general release on 28th September. Audrey Fleurot, Anne Le Ny and Clotilde Mollet also star

To celebrate the Beasts of The Southern Wind UK release this October Studiocanal today have sent us the UK trailer

Her mother long gone, and her father Wink a wildman on a perpetual spree, Hushpuppy is left to her own devices on an isolated compound filled with semi-feral animals. She perceives the natural world to be a fragile web of living, breathing, squirting things, in which the entire universe depends on everything fitting together just right. So when a hundred year storm raises the waters around her town, her daddy is suddenly stricken with illness, and fierce pre-historic creatures awaken from their frozen graves to come charging across the planet, Hushpuppy sees the natural order of everything she holds dear collapsing around her. Desperate to repair the structure of her world in order to save her ailing father and sinking home, this tiny hero must learn to survive an unstoppable catastrophe of epic proportions.
