Emily Blunt Dances For Colin Firth In ‘Arthur & Mike’ Clip

3 July 2014 12:59 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Super Brit Colin Firth and the hugely talented Emily Blunt unite and escape as Arthur And Mike in this bitter-sweet romance, written by Academy Award nominee, Becky Johnston (Seven Years in Tibet) and we’ve got a clip to share to celebrate the release in cinemas now.

One-time talented golfer, Wallace Avery (Colin Firth) is struggling with a life from which he longs to escape. Faking his own death, he acquires a forged passport and a new identity—that of a golfer named “Arthur Newman”. “Arthur” heads out for Indiana to start a new life and a promise of a new job as a resident golf-pro at a prestigious club. Along the way, he meets the beautiful but troubled Charlotte (Emily Blunt), who is also traveling under a false identity—that of her schizophrenic twin sister, Michaela or “Mike”—and has fled her own home in North Carolina.

Check Out Colin Firth And Emily Blunt In The ‘Arthur And Mike’ Trailer

11 June 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It should be a criminal offence to release films at such different times, but it looks like the latest flick from Colin Firth and Emily Blunt, titled Arthur And Mike, will finally be getting a UK release.

Firth plays the title character of Wallace Avery, who decides to fake his own death and start a new life as Arthur Newman. On his travels he meets Michaela (Blunt), who is more close to home than Arthur thinks - she is also maintaining a different identity. Written by Under The Cherry Moon and Seven Years In Tibet scribe Becky Johnston, the film made its debut at the Toronto Film Festival back in 2012, and the Us release followed early 2013. It is also the feature directorial debut from Dante Ariola.

We have to say, Firth and Blunt in one movie? Should be a match-made in heaven right? Check out the trailer below and make a judgement for yourself! »

Colin Firth and Emily Blunt role play in Arthur & Mike trailer - watch

11 June 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The trailer for Arthur And Mike has been released.

Colin Firth stars in the romantic drama as a once-talented golfer who fakes his own death out of desperation to escape his current life.

After acquiring a new passport and a fake identity, he begins a new life in Indiana and encounters the similarly-troubled Charlotte (Emily Blunt), a woman travelling under her twin sister's identity.

The pair embark on an escapist road trip together, breaking into empty homes and role-playing new identities, but are ultimately forced to confront their own pasts.

The film is director Dante Ariola's debut feature, and is written by Becky Johnston. It was released in the Us last year under the title Arthur Newman.

Arthur And Mike is released in the UK on June 27. »
