1 July 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There's a lot of pride for gays and lesbians going around right now as many states continue grant equal rights to allow them to get married instead of being treated like second class citizens by the law.

However, at the time, the National Union of Mineworkers weren't all that thrilled about receiving their help, forcing these activists to go straight to the families themselves. It's a story of unlikely togetherness staring Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West, Paddy Considine and more, and the first trailer from the UK has arrived!

Pride Trailer And Poster Feature Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West & Paddy Considine

28 June 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Starring Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West, and Paddy Considine, the first trailer for Pride is here.

In their Cannes 2014 review, HeyUGuys‘ Jo-Ann Titmarsh wrote: “A feel-good movie about the 1984 miners’ strike, Thatcherism and the scourge of Aids is a tough nut, but with Pride Matthew Warchus has cracked it. Garnering an ovation on its premiere here in Cannes, Pride can certainly feel proud of itself.”

The screenplay is from Stephen Beresford, whose debut stage play, The Last of the Haussmans (starring Julie Walters), was a critical and commercial hit at the National Theatre in 2012.

It’s the summer of 1984 – Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers (Num) is on strike.  At the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decides to raise money to support the families of the striking miners.  But there is a problem.  The Union seems embarrassed to receive their support. »

The First Poster For Pride Has Arrived

26 June 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Here's a heart-warming tale: in 1984, a group of activists at the annual Gay Pride march are moved to raise money to help the families of striking miners. So far, so charitable - but some of the conservative miners are taken aback by the source of the donations and balk at the generosity. Not to be deterred, the activists head off to a small Welsh village to hand over their bounty in person, and the two groups find some surprising things in common. It's all told in Matthew Warchus' film Pride, and here's the new poster.As you can see, Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and Paddy Considine lead the cast, along with Dominic West, George McKay and Andrew Scott. Yes, that is Bill Nighy, somehow looking entirely different to normal simply by dint of slicking down his hair. Go figure.Pride comes from director Matthew Warchus, who's about to take »

Trevor Hogg chats with director Robert Stromberg, production visual effects supervisor Carey Villegas, visual effects supervisors Seth Maury and Kelly Port, digital effects supervisor Darren Hendler, and previs supervisor Mark Nelson about reviving a Disney classic…

“There are not many production designers/visual effects people who have made the leap which doesn’t make sense to me because it seems like the perfect breeding ground to moving up into directing,” reflects filmmaker Robert Stromberg who started as a matte painter and became the Oscar-winning production designer for Avatar [2009] and Alice in Wonderland [2010].  “On Master and Commander [2003] I met Peter Weir and we hit it off.  I came in as a Visual Effects Supervisor and spent so much time with Peter that I became a liaison between him and Ilm.   We started talking about other things especially about characters and what it is like to direct.  I learned so much from »
