There's a Museum Where You Can Walk in the Footsteps of the Peaky Blinders

  • BuzzSugar
Image Source: Popsugar Photography / Gemma Cartwright When it first hit screens in 2013, the gritty '20s-set drama Peaky Blinders upped Birmingham's cool-factor by a 100 percent. Even that accent (dodgy as it may be) sounded sexy coming out of Cillian Murphy's mouth. But sadly, though the TV show is synonymous with the city in central England (nope, not the one in Alabama), Peaky Blinders is not actually filmed in the city. Birmingham was badly damaged in WWII, and post-war town planning meant a lot of the area was torn down and rebuilt. Instead, old terraced streets in Liverpool often play stand-in for the Small Heath street where the Shelbys start their story.

Peaky Blinders series 4 episode 5 review

Louisa Mellor Dec 13, 2017

Peaky Blinders impresses with large-scale action in its thrilling penultimate series 4 episode. Spoilers ahead…

This review contains spoilers.

Tommy Shelby is a rare kind of person. Whatever mess in which he finds himself—whether it’s accidentally stealing a crate of Lewis machine guns or being coerced into doing business with Russian aristocrats—he’s able to turn it to his advantage. Trust him to cast his eye over the incipient threat of socialist revolution and end up not with his back against the wall but with a two-million-pound supply contract to the British army. War is a profitable business, and one from which Tommy, having already paid its dreadful price in France, now means to profit.

That being his attitude, you have to ask this: what’s more important to Tommy Shelby,

Vintage News Reel Us Trailer for 'The Death of Stalin' is Worth a Watch

"Citizens of America, we need you to make moviegoing great again." IFC Films has debuted a unique teaser trailer for the Us release of The Death of Stalin, satirist Armando Iannucci's latest film about Russian politics. This is a peculiar teaser because it's basically a fake B&W news reel talking about how the film is finally going to appear in the Us in March after "first conquering Britain" (since it opened there in October). Based on Fabien Nury's graphic novel, the film is about Russian dictator Joseph Stalin's last days and the disorganized chaos of the regime after his death in 1953 and 30 years of iron-fisted rule. Adrian McLoughlin plays Stalin, with an entertaining ensemble cast of characters including Rupert Friend, Steve Buscemi, Olga Kurylenko, Jason Isaacs, Andrea Riseborough, Jeffrey Tambor, Paddy Considine, Michael Palin, and Jonathan Aris. This trailer is worth a watch just to see how unique it is.

International Newswire: Genre, Sci-Fi, Thrillers Rise in Latin America, and Beyond

In today’s International Newswire, Latin America sees the rise of genre filmmaking, Film4 strengthens its exec team as it enters awards season, and FremantleMedia inks a scripted deal with 87 Films.

Genre filmmaking is becoming a more commercially potent force in Latin America and elsewhere as digital distribution gains strength.

At last week’s Mar del Plata Film Festival, of 12 Argentine movie projects presented at one of its main pitching sessions, over half were horror or thriller movies, including some of its most notable titles, whether Paula Martel’s assassination suspenser “First We Take Anillaco,” Rosendo Ruíz’s neo-noir “Boom Boom,” or Maximiliano Anríquez’s post-apocalypse low-fi sci-fi “The Doggy.”

Genre in its widest sense, embracing horror, thrillers and sci-fi, is the film type of choice for Latin America’s newest generation of filmmakers. Drawn from all over Argentina, the directors and producers behind the projects at Mar del Plata are almost all under 40.

First Trailer for Paddy Considine’s Boxing Drama ‘Journeyman’ Shows Triumphs Beyond the Ring

While he’s perhaps most notable on screen in films such as The World’s End and Bourne Ultimatum, Paddy Considine wrote and directed his debut feature film Tyrannosaur back in 2011.

Thanks to Empire, a first trailer is now available, which effectively showcases Considine’s performance, as well as a film which looks both heart-wrenching and hopefully balanced by humanity. See the trailer below, along with a still and synopsis for the film that also stars Jodie Whittaker.

Paddy Considine has been a familiar face in front of the camera for nearly two decades but in 2011, Considine moved behind the camera to direct Peter Mullan in one of his best roles: Tyrannosaur in which he stars as a violent man given a second chance. It's a dark and brutal movie with outstanding performances from both Mullan and Olivia Colman, both great talents who really shine under Considine's direction.

For his follow-up as director, Considine is also appearing in front of the camera alongside Jodie Whittaker in Journeyman. Considine plays Matty Burton, a boxer who suffers a serious head injury during a fight which leaves him with no memory of his previous life and limited control over his body.

Empire magazine has debuted the new trailer for the Paddy Considine-directed Journeyman, a film in which he also stars. The promo comes just weeks after the film debuted at the 2017 BFI London Film Festival. You can watch the Journeyman trailer in the player below.

In Journeyman, Matty (Considine) is quite the skilled fighter in the ring, currently holding onto a World Champion title.

After a fight leaves his life changed forever, Matty must muster whatever strength he can find and fight to win back everything he loves.

As we said in our original, very positive review, on the surface, Journeyman follows the standard genre formula – boxer at the top of their game is left without cause and has to fight for it back – and whilst this film does occasionally hit those beats,

Peaky Blinders series three opened with a lavish wedding. After the hushed-up suicide of Grace’s husband, she returned from New York with her and Tommy’s baby son (conceived during series two’s extra-marital fling) to make an honest man of Thomas Shelby - literally so.
