Cheer on local talent with these potentially great UK films from 2016, including drama, comedy, action, horror, fantasy & more…
While Batman Vs Superman, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men Apocalypse and other mega franchises are expected to dominate cinemas in 2016, let’s hear it for the films below. None are sequels, few have titanic budgets, all of them are British and each of them has the potential to be great.
2016 looks to be a particularly strong year for UK crime drama, with Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire, Adam Smith’s Trespass Against Us and Michael Apted’s Unlocked on their way. Military thrillers are also well represented this year, with Gavin Hood’s Eye In The Sky, Fernando Coimbra’s Sand Castle, and Simon West’s Stratton incoming. There’s also comedy, fantasy, drama, horror and even a musical waiting for you below.
A Street Cat Named Bob (dir. »
Director: Volker Schlöndorff
New Wave German auteur Volker Schlondorff (The Tin Drum, 1979) is at work on another project, Montauk Revisited, an adaptation of a novel by Max Frisch. During publicity for his last feature, Diplomacy in late 2014, Schlondörff had mentioned Ralph Fiennes as the male lead in a film about two lovers who meet by chance in Paris and decide to return together to Montauk for the winter season. It looks as if Fiennes is no longer attached, but the German trades recently mentioned the item has been brought ‘before the camera,’ and was recently one of four projects at the German-French co-production meeting in Marseille. Most exciting of all to note is the casting of Nina Hoss (Barbara; Phoenix) in the female lead, with Danish actor Stellan Skarsgard replacing Fiennes.
