Get A Behind The Scenes Look At The Pride Movie

16 September 2014 4:06 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Audiences will have their sense of humanity refreshed.”

Actors Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and Dominic West, director Matthew Warchus and the filmmakers of Pride discuss the background of this emotional story in the new featurette.

Critics are already cheering the film. “Breakout British hit is a warm, witty triumph,” says Digital Spy.

The Hollywood News writes, “Pride really is a thing of beauty.”

Pride is inspired by an extraordinary true story.

It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.

5 Reasons Pride’s Paddy Considine Is Cooler Than You

16 September 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Paddy Considine has returned to the big screen in Pride as a Welsh miner welcoming the Lesbian and Gay supporters of the mining cause. In the film, he becomes something of an intermediary between the groups and his role is integral in the message of tolerance and understanding.

Considine has proven his skills over the years with as many dramatic and emotional performances as hilarious ones. So just what is it about Considine that makes him so much cooler than the rest of us?

1. He gives the very best stares

Just try and out-stare him. It’s the stare that just keeps giving.

Intl Box Office Final: No. 1 Bragging Rights In China Too Close To Call As ‘Storm,’ ‘Expendables 3′ And ‘Apes’ Fight It Out

15 September 2014 3:01 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

4th Update, Monday, 2:43 Pm Pt: Who was No. 1 this weekend in China? It’s just not clear. Although Warner Bros reported $7.7M this afternoon for Into The Storm, Fox reported $7.64M for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and it looks like Expendables 3 ended up with $7.5M (according to Rentrak). But China reporting on box office is always a bit sketchy and numbers tend to fluctuate, which may be why another final total for Into The Storm shows it pulled in only $7.16M. Warners is sticking by its $7.7M number (which includes previews). So, to be fair to both parties, it’s really too close to call.

Final grosses are in for Guardians Of The Galaxy and other films including The Maze Runner (which bows in the states next weekend), The Boxtrolls (which won’t bow until September 26 in the U.S.), Dolphin Tale 2, Lucy, Finding Fanny (which »

Pride Review

14 September 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Matthew Warchus

Starring: Bill Nighy, Andrew ScottPaddy Considine, Dominic West, Imelda Staunton

Running Time: 120 minutes

Certificate: 15

Synopsis: U.K. gay activists work to help miners during their lengthy strike of the National Union of Mineworkers in the summer of 1984.

Based on a true story, Pride follows a group called the Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (Lgsm) who decide to raise money for the miners in a mark of solidarity. They soon discover that the miners are largely reluctant to take their donation and need to find a particular community willing to work with them.

Their search takes them to a small community in Wales where many of the residents need some time to learn to accept their new guests. The assembled cast are sublime, with the likes of Paddy Considine, Andrew Scott, Dominic West, Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and many more on hand to tell the story. »

Film Review: 'Pride'

14 September 2014 11:59 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆Following the minor disappointment of Ken Loach's somewhat lethargic Jimmy's Hall (2014), left-leaning political activism returns to UK cinemas, but this time in the much livelier and fun-filled exuberance of Matthew Warchus' Queer Palm-winning agit-comedy Pride (2014). It's 1984, in the depths of the miners' strikes, and gay activist Mark Ashton (Ben Schnetzer) is inspired to start raising money for the miners, arguing that the two apparently disparate groups have common interests. Like the miners, the gay and lesbian community is harassed by the police and demonised by the media. Lgsm's persuasive argument - if the miners didn't fuel the power stations, "You couldn't listen to Banarama at three in the morning."

Pride filmmakers on making "a very uplifting film about defeat"

14 September 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

One of the year's biggest homegrown success stories is Pride, a warm, sharply observed comedy-drama that follows the uneasy alliance between a group of Lgbt campaigners and the striking miners' union in 1980s Britain.

Following its premiere at this year's Cannes Film Festival, where it won the Queer Palm, buzz has gathered rapidly around this modestly budgeted gem, which boasts an ensemble cast that includes Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and Andrew Scott.

Screenwriter Stephen Beresford first heard the story during the second round of pit closures in the 1990s, during an argument with a friend who was trying to convince him to support the miners.

"I was literally crowing about it, which is not an attractive part of my personality," he admits. "It's like being a gold prospector: 'Yes! These people have been left in obscurity for 30 years! This couldn't be better!'"

But it still took a long time »

Pride movie review: hanging together rather than hanging separately

12 September 2014 3:39 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

One of the rare movies that gets absolutely everything right, bursting with happy-tears emotion about solidarity, friendship, and smashing bigotry. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

And then sometimes the forces of good win. Well, the good guys almost always win in The Movies, but not so much in real life.

Background: For a year in 1984-5, U.K. coal miners engaged in a massive industrial action that saw them walk out of work over government plans to close a massive number of pits. (The industry was at the time nationalized and controlled from Westminster.) Most Americans and probably many younger Brits will likely be unaware of this important historical event (unless they’ve seen the film Billy Elliot, which, like Pride, was set amidst the strike); the closest American analogy might be the 1981 strike »

12 September 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Feelgood comedy drama leads the pack on social networks in the UK.

Matthew Warchus’s Pride has marched to the top of the social media buzz chart in the UK, according to Way to Blue.

The true story of gay activists who supported miners during the strike of 1984 generated more than 2,400 comments from Sept 4-10, with 43% of those expressing intent to view.

The film, starring Bill Nighy, Andrew Scott and Imelda Staunton, opens across the UK today (Sept 12). Pride received its world premiere at Cannes in May and screened at the Toronto International Film Festival last week.

The film drew more than three times as many comments as animation The Boxtrolls 3D and Anton Corbijn’s A Wanted Man, both of which open this weekend.

After a week on release, there were strong showings for light-hearted culinary drama The Hundred-Foot Journey, starring Helen Mirren, and Adam Wingard’s psychological thriller The Guest, starring [link=tt »

Idris Elba And Dominic West Join Finding Dory

11 September 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Might Pixar’s upcoming sequel Finding Dory take its characters to the mean streets of Baltimore? Almost absolutely not, but good luck getting that image out of your head now that it’s been revealed that The Wire co-stars Idris Elba and Dominic West have both signed on to lend their voices to new characters in the Finding Nemo follow-up.

West, who is starring in Showtime’s ambitious fall series The Affair, dropped the news during an interview with Shortlist, simply teasing:

“We’re both in the sequel to ‘Finding Nemo,’ so we were recording that.”

No word yet on which characters the actors will be playing, but Finding Dory is set to take place at least in part along the coast of California, where scatter-brained regal tang Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) reunites with many important people from her past one year after the events of the first film. Along for the ride are Marlin, »

Andrew Scott: 'Pride role was a departure from Sherlock's Moriarty'

11 September 2014 4:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Andrew Scott stars as the quietly wounded Gethin in breakout British hit Pride, which follows the true story of a group of Lgbt protestors who aligned themselves with the miners' union during the '84 and '85 strikes.

The role is a far cry from the performance Scott has become best known for, as the outlandishly villainous Moriarty in Sherlock, and Digital Spy sat down with Scott recently to discuss the contrast.

"It's something that I actively was excited to play on camera," says Scott. "One, because I always find that very compelling to watch, when somebody doesn't speak too much.

"I find that very cinematic, when you have to sort of look at somebody rather than listen to somebody. And two, because it's a departure from some of the more flamboyant stuff that I've done in recent years."

Pride is out in the UK this Friday (September 12), and in the »

The HeyUGuys Interview: Faye Marsay & Ben Schnetzer on Pride

11 September 2014 2:29 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Ben Schnetzer and Faye Marsay aren’t exactly household names – yet. With Schnetzer taking centre stage in Pride and starring in the upcoming The Riot Club, he’s a rising star to pay very close attention to. Not least for playing a Northern Irish character when he is very much an American. As for Marsay, you will recognise her as Candice from the latest series of Fresh Meat, as well as playing Anne to Aneurin Barnard’s King Richard III in BBC One’s The White Queen.

We sat down with the pair to hear their thoughts on how social media would aid the Lgsm’s efforts in today’s world, the very different ways they got their parts, and what it was like basing their work on real life people and events.

Pride is released in UK cinemas this Friday. Check out our review here.

The HeyUGuys Interview: Matthew Warchus & Stephen Beresford on Pride

11 September 2014 2:26 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Matthew Warchus has a catalogue of work that most theatre lovers can only dream of. Primed to take over from Kevin Spacey as Artistic Director of London’s Old Vic, he can boast Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeff Goldblum, Sharon Stone and Spacey himself as just a few of those he has directed on stage. Yet he has only one feature film directing credit to his name: 1999’s Simpatico. Thank goodness, then, for Stephen Beresford whose gloriously uplifting and essential script has coaxed Warchus back to the big screen.

With Pride receiving incredible – and thoroughly deserved – acclaim across the board, we were only too eager to talk about a film based on real life events that many thought would remain forgotten.

Pride is released in UK cinemas this Friday. Check out our review here.

Meet the characters of new E4 drama Glue

10 September 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | ScreenTerrier | See recent ScreenTerrier news »

Glue, the highly-anticipated new drama series created and written by BAFTA-winning writer Jack Thorne, comes to E4 on Monday 15th September at 10:00pm.

Set in a small village called Overton, it's about the murder of a boy, and how it affects his friends and the community that they live in.

Yasmine Paige plays Ruth Rosen, a 20 year old provisional police officer from a Romany background. She and her Romany mum are estranged from the travelling community, but that doesn’t stop Ruth. Not much does. Not being a young single mum, or the fact that she lives in the same village as a group of friends who no longer talk to her. She’s made of stronger stuff, or at least she thinks she is. Yasmine (represented by Curtis Brown), starred in the critically-acclaimed Submarine, and was named as a Screen International Star of Tomorrow in 2010.

Charlotte Spencer plays 19 year old Tina Fallon. »
