New Us Trailer for Lone Scherfig's 'Their Finest' with Gemma Arterton

29 minutes ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"People like films, because stories are structure. And when things turn bad, it's still part of a plan." Stx Entertainment has unveiled a new trailer for the film Their Finest, the latest feature from writer/director Lone Scherfig, of the films The Riot Club, One Day and An Education (one of my favorites). The film is a WWII-set comedy about an awkward British team that attempts to boost morale by making a propaganda film. Gemma Arterton stars as a writer, along with an impressive ensemble cast including Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy, Jack Huston, Paul Ritter, Rachael Stirling, Richard E. Grant, Henry Goodman, Jake Lacy, Jeremy Irons, Eddie Marsan and Helen McCrory. This has screened at numerous film festivals and looks immensely charming and uplifting, which may be exactly what we need right now. Enjoy. Here's the official Us trailer (+ the UK poster) for Lone Scherfig's Their Finest, direct from »

Atomic Blonde Poster Has Charlize Theron Ready for Action

22 February 2017 12:28 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

From director David Leitch and starring Oscar winner Charlize Theron, the breakneck action-thriller Atomic Blonde will debut at the SXSW Film Festival Sunday, March 12 at the Paramount Theater before hitting theaters this summer. To celebrate this big announcement, Focus Features has debuted the new poster for Atomic Blonde, previously known as The Coldest City, which offers our first look at Charlize Theron as this deadly assassin. Hopefully this poster's arrival could signal that the first trailer is coming soon, but the studio hasn't confirmed a trailer debut date at this time.

Atomic Blonde made headlines in late 2015, when David Leitch came aboard to direct this action-thriller by himself. The former stuntman and stunt coordinator made his directorial debut with the 2014 cult classic John Wick, which he co-directed alongside Chad Stahelski, both of whom co-founded the stunt company 87Eleven. The directorial duo decided to part ways for the time being, with »

Wonderfully cheery new poster for Their Finest with Gemma Arterton and Sam Claflin

21 February 2017 2:46 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Director Lone Scherfig’s An Education was a wonderful example of a movie adaptation capturing the chaos and colour of a deeply personal coming of age novel. Her latest film goes a little further back in time to the early 1940s and a Britain plunged into the darkness of war. Their Finest tells the story of a British film crew making a propaganda film following the hell of the Blitzkrieg.

The film is based on Lissa Evans’ novel, ‘Their Finest Hour and a Half’, and has bright shining stars Gemma Arterton and Sam Claflin falling in love while all around them falls apart. Scherfig and Claflin previously collaborated on 2014’s The Riot Club. Arterton recently lead the powerful post-apocalyptic zombie fest The Girl with All the Gifts.

The film promises to take a nuanced look at both sides of the conflict.

Berlin: Sellers Hit the Festival and Market With Mixed Expectations

3 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sellers are heading to Berlin with realistic expectations about the state of the marketplace and the hurdles facing them.

“Consistently delivering great movies has always been the challenge, but you need the rigor required for that even more so now,” says Sierra/Affinity CEO Nick Meyer, who’ll be repping the Wwi-era drama “The Promise,” starring Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale, in Berlin. “The demand for excellence in filmmaking from independent distributors around the world is higher than ever.”

While Meyer is pragmatic about the global economy (“There are always going to be currency fluctuations and markets that are up and down — that’s the rule,” he says), others see a more ominous landscape.

“The fundamental issue right now is that every single territory in the world has problems that are very challenging, not just for the cinema market, but politically and economically,” says FilmNation Entertainment senior VP of international sales Tara Erer, »

Urban Myths: Bob Dylan review – his Bobness pops to Crouch End for tea

19 January 2017 11:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The first in Sky Arts’ new Urban Myths series of comedy drama, starring a very convincingly Bob-like Eddie Marsan

Sky Arts’ new Urban Myths series of comedy dramas has already made waves, although not the sort it would have wanted. They decided, in the end, not to air the one in which Joseph Fiennes plays Michael Jackson, after the outrage it caused, particularly from Jackson’s family. Seems it does matter if you’re black or white, after all.

This one – Urban Myths: Bob Dylan (Sky Arts) – is contentious only in its questionable veracity, which of course is the point of an urban myth. Bob shows up at Heathrow; he is poetic, obtuse and generally Bob-like to the (unusually) nice lady at passport control, who is confused, a little suspicious but also undeniably charmed and sends her regards to Dave, the Eurythmic, whom Bob says he’s in town to visit. »
