Trailer for upcoming British comedy United We Fall

From the director of Leon The Pig Farmer comes a new comedy, about a bunch of footballers. Here's the trailer for United We Fall...

Director Gary Sinyor came to prominence through his economic and impressive debut Leon The Pig Farmer. However, he's steadily built up an interesting body of work since then, including the really fun spoof period drama movie, Stiff Upper Lips.

He's got a new film coming out next month too, in the shape of United We Fall. This is a mockumentary about a group of upcoming footballers - clearly based on Manchester United's Class Of '92 - and a trailer for it has just landed. You can see that right here....

United We Fall is out in cinemas on October 17th.

From Birdsong to The Hour, via Hunted and The Fear, British drama has had a great year. It's all down to these essential ingredients. Plus, Limmy's darkest bits

A spoonful of sugar

This was the year a heartwarming drama about slimy, crying heads bursting through cockney women's ha'pennies became a mainstream hit. Call The Midwife delighted many with its hearty mix of saccharine storylines and syphilitic ulcers. If you wanted one, you had to have the other. Meanwhile, Sky Arts wooed and repelled us in equal measure with John Hamm's beautiful face and piles of stinking gangrenous limbs in A Young Doctor's Notebook.
