FORTITUDE On Sky Atlantic HD

Document1 copy

Fortitude is the brilliant new Sky Atlantic television series written by HH client SIMON DONALD. Its opening episode will premiere tomorrow night, Thursday 29th January at 9pm on Sky Atlantic HD.

The series is set in the small Arctic outpost known as Fortitude – a place like nowhere else. Although surrounded by the savage beauty of the Arctic landscape, Fortitude is one of the safest towns on earth. Everyone has a specific job, so there’s ostensibly no poverty or crime. The polar bears, however, are behaving oddly, and shifting weather and melting ice has brought unexpected artifacts into view. And there has never been a violent crime here. Until now.

A murder forces the local sheriff, Dan Anderssen (played by Richard Dormer), to get involved, and a forensic investigator from the mainland (played by Stanley Tucci) to eventually be sent to help him.

With a darkly hypnotic tone and fantastic script writing by SIMON, Fortitude also boasts an excellent cast: Joining Tucci and Dormer are Michael Gambon, Christopher Eccleston, Sofie Grabol, Jessica Raine, Nicholas Pinnock, Johnny Harris and HH client LUKE TREADAWAY, who stars as Vincent Rattrey, a talented young scientist arriving in Fortitude as part of a team investigating the recent cannibalistic behaviour in the polar bear population, but who is soon drawn into the strange and terrifying events that threaten the town.

Set in the Arctic and filmed amidst the beautiful backdrops of Iceland, Fortitude comprises 12 episodes which will air on Thursday nights. Don’t miss the two-hour, two-episode premiere tomorrow, and check out the trailer below. You can also have a read of this brilliant article in the Independent which discusses the show in more depth and features an interview with SIMON about his work.

BBC’s WOLF HALL Starts Tonight!

Document1 copy

The long-awaited and hugely anticipated dramatisation of Hilary Mantel’s Booker-winning novels Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies finally premieres on UK television screens tonight, Wednesday 21st January at 9pm on BBC2.

The brand new six-part series – Wolf Hall – stars MARK RYLANCE as the powerful historical figure Thomas Cromwell and charts his rise and fall in the lead-up to the Reformation, covering everything from his interactions with the major players of the court through to his domestic life and flashbacks to childhood. Damian Lewis plays the charismatic and unpredictably brutal Henry VIII and HH clients NATASHA LITTLE, EMMA HIDDLESTON and LUCY RUSSELL also star as Elizabeth Cromwell, Meg More and Lady Shelton, respectively.

MARK‘s performance as Cromwell has already been receiving accolades from critics and the show looks set to be a big hit. According the Radio Times, Wolf Hall “lives up to the books, and the hype [and it] could already be the best drama of 2015″. It describes MARK‘s performance as “magisterial”, saying: “Rylance is a uniquely gifted performer who marries a brilliant mind with an enormous heart, and even just one look from him seems to carry years of pain, hurt, fear and deep human feeling.”

Check out the series trailer and a preview from Episode 1 below, and don’t miss the premiere on BBC2 tonight!


Top Reviews For Hayley and AGENT CARTER

Document1 copy

It’s been an exciting week so far for HH client HAYLEY ATWELL as her brand new eight-episode show, Marvel’s Agent Carter, in which she stars in the titular role, premiered on America’s ABC channel last night to excellent reviews for both the show and HAYLEY‘s star performance.

In this highly anticipated new series, HAYLEY once again reprises her role as Peggy Carter from the short film Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter as well as the massive feature films Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The new full-length series is set in post-war 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she returns from war to find herself marginalised by the men returning home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark, all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life – Steve Rogers.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, HAYLEY “fully embodies the character [with] panache and allure”. Time Out describes HAYLEY‘s performance as being “like a ’40s movie idol in her bearing, history and confidence. She’s as convincing wielding a crisp insult as an improvised blade, conveying the control and deftness Carter requires to run a covert operation under the patronizing gaze of her inferior superiors in the SSR boys’ club.” Screenrant have praised Agent Carter for having “at its core, the extremely adept Atwell, to establish the foundation of the series.”

The show airs weekly on Tuesdays on ABC. Make sure you tune in to watch HAYLEY rocking her iconic role!

UPDATE: David Oyelowo’s Incredible SELMA Accolades!

david-oyelowo

DAVID OYELOWO‘s masterful performance in Ava DuVernay’s Martin Luther King Jr. bipoic Selma continues to receive overwhelmingly positive critical and audience reactions and, with awards season in full swing, his list of wins and nominations is rapidly increasing. DAVID has been enjoying a fantastic few weeks and receiving numerous plaudits for a role described by the Hollywood Reporter as “one of the greatest performances you’ll ever see”.

As of today (17 December 2014), he has won three awards for Selma, including the Best Actor Award at the African-American Film Critics Association Awards, the Virtuso Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and, in January, he will be honoured with the Breakthrough Performance Award, Actor, at the 2015 Palm Springs International Film Festival.

He has also received Best Actor nominations at the Golden Globe Awards, Image Awards, Film Independent Spirit Awards, Satellite Awards, Phoenix Critics Circle Awards, Chicago Film Critics Association Awards and the Washington DC Area Film Critics Association Awards, and named as one of Vanity Fair’s “10 Best Performances of 2014″.

Huge congratulations DAVID, and fingers crossed!

On the weekend of 6 December, DAVID‘s Selma co-star Oprah Winfrey hosted the “Celebrating Selma & The Legends Who Paved The Way” festival of events in Santa Barbara, California. The event was held to honor the upcoming film and to celebrate the lives of the iconic civil rights heroes who fought in the civil rights movement and those from the entertainment and arts industries who contributed to African American history. DAVID attended the emotional event and you can watch the featurette below:


Selma has also been racking up a wealth of award nominations for Best Film, Best Director, Best Song, Best Cinematography and numerous other categories across the board. This is set to be a very exciting awards season indeed, so keep watching this space!

Huge congratulations go to TOM HIDDLESTON who won the award for Best Actor at Sunday’s 60th Annual London Evening Standard Theatre Awards 2014 ceremony, for his leading role in Josie Rourke’s powerful Donmar Warehouse production of Coriolanus.

TOM gave a stunning performance in the show, which opened around this time last year, playing the titular Roman general, a one-man killing machine happiest with a sword in his hand, slaying enemies on a battlefield but restless and ill at ease in civilian life.

Congrats TOM! Watch his reaction to winning, below:

First JURASSIC WORLD Trailer Unleashed

c278478a8e59676a73a826cc2bd066cd

After being shrouded in secrecy for a very long time, Universal Pictures have finally unveiled the first trailer for the upcoming epic action-adventure Jurassic World, and it looks like it’s going to be huge!

Steven Spielberg has executive produced this long-awaited fourth installment of his groundbreaking Jurassic Park series and it stars HH client KATIE McGRATH in a role that has not yet been revealed to the general public.

Set twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Jurassic World sees a return to the infamous Isla Nublar which now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, as envisioned by Sir Richard Attenborough’s ‘John Hammond’ character in the original 1993 classic. In a theme park filled with tourists and families, events take a predictably terrifying turn for the worse when a brand new genetically modified dinosaur hybrid breaks free!

The exciting new trailer gives us just enough to whet our appetites, whilst giving away very little. Check it out below…

Jurassic World is released on 12th June 2015 and we can’t wait!

“One Of The Greatest Performances You’ll Ever See”

Document1 copy

Oyelowo as Martin Luther King in Selma: one of the greatest performances you’ll ever see.
-Scott Feinberg, Hollywood Reporter

It’s looking set to be a very exciting end of year for HH client DAVID OYELOWO who has been receiving rave reviews for his stunning performance as Martin Luther King Jr. in new civil rights King biopic Selma, scheduled for international commercial release January 2015.

Fifty years on, the film revisits the events of King’s historic voting-rights march from Selma, Alabama to the state capitol in Montgomery, whilst simultaneously offering an in-depth portrait of Dr. King himself. With DAVID in the lead role, Selma also boasts a fantastic cast including Tim Roth, Cuba Gooding Jr., Tom Wilkinson and Oprah Winfrey.

Having recently received its American Film Institute premiere, the Selma screening was met with extremely positive reviews and top praise from major journals and industry critics, with DAVID receiving numerous plaudits for what Variety magazine called “a graceful, majestic lead performance”. The smash Variety review (which you can read in full here) goes on to call Selma “politically astute, psychologically acute…revisit[ing] those events with startling immediacy, dramatic force and filmmaking verve…the kind of movie that gives year-end “prestige” pics a good name, which should equate to considerable box-office and awards-season gold.”

Of course, we never want to speak to soon, but we’re keeping fingers crossed for DAVID in the upcoming awards season, which looks like it could be an exciting ride. You can see the trailer at the bottom of this post and check out what the critics are saying below. Go DAVID!

“holy shit Selma. What a great fucking movie. I personally see Selma as a major work. David Oyelowo knocks it the fuck out of the park.
-Sasha Stone, Awards Daily

 “Selma is a gift to the Oscar season. Director Ava DuVernay created a film that’s not only important but also a work of art. I’m blown away…Oh and David Oyelowo as Dr. Martin Luther King? True talent. Brace yourself for awesome awards show speeches for Selma. Bc they’re coming.”
-Danielle Nussbaum, EW

Selma is fantastic…Oyelowo is wonderful…Seriously, fuckin’ A…Important film at an important time. Voting rights under fire as we sit here. Powerful.”
-Kris Tapley, Hitfix

Selma gets rousing reception, huge cheers for star David Oyelowo, who carries Ava Duvernay’s sincere biopic.”

This live action feature film, directed by Kenneth Branagh, retells the classic “Cinderella” story and follows the fortunes of young Ella (played by Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother, played by HAYLEY.

Lucy’s HOME FOR CHRISTMAS

Document1 copy

Jump Start Productions, a truly independent film production company based in Brighton, will be releasing their latest feature film Home For Christmas on December 5th, starring HH client LUCY GRIFFITHS, who also co-produced the film. It is scheduled to screen in selected Ourscreen cinemas and on demand from December 5th.

Home For Christmas marks the third film LUCY has collaborated with Jump Start Productions on as an actress, and the second she has co-produced with them. From the original book written by Cally Taylor, it follows the story of Beth Prince (played by April Pearson) who, having always loved fairytales, now feels, aged twenty-four, like she is finally on the verge of her own ‘happily ever after’.  She lives by the seaside, works in a charming old cinema and has a boyfriend who is so debonair and charming she can’t believe her luck! There is just one problem – none of her boyfriends have ever told her they love her and it doesn’t look like Aiden is going to say it any time soon. Desperate to hear ‘I love you’ for the first time, Beth takes matters into her own hands – and instantly wishes she hadn’t!

Home For Christmas will be touring a number of cinemas using the Ourscreen strand of programming by Picturehouse, which consequently means that if the tickets don’t sell, the film isn’t shown. The film will be accompanied on its tour by a number of cast and crew who will be hosting Q&As at each event. For full screening and tour dates and to book your tickets now, visit the film’s official website.

Check out the trailer below, which also includes a brief introduction with some of the cast explaining how the screening process works:

Ben Whishaw Is PADDINGTON!

60985

Brace yourselves for a delightful dose of British comedy in the highly-anticipated, superbly heartwarming big screen version of Paddington, released in UK cinemas on 28th November and starring BEN WHISHAW.

From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (Harry Potter), Paddington tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced wonderfully by BEN) who is shipped over to London from darkest Peru, arriving in – that’s right – Paddington station, in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realise that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says “Please look after this bear. Thank you,” and offer him a temporary haven.

However, it’s not long before this rarest of bears catches the eye of an evil taxidermist (played by Nicole Kidman), throwing his new home – and very existence – under threat.

The film boasts a fantastic British cast which includes High Bonneville, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Michael Gambon, Peter Capaldi, Imelda Staunton, Matt Lucas and Sally Hawkins, alongside Kidman’s evil villain and BEN‘s pitch-perfect voice! Get ready for the upcoming festive fun by checking out the two fab trailers below:


SET FIRE TO THE STARS

Document1 copy

Celebrated poet Dylan Thomas battles his demons in 1950s New York in new feature film Set Fire To The Stars, released in selected UK cinemas next Friday 7th November and starring SHIRLEY HENDERSON.

Marking Dylan Thomas’ centenary, this fascinating semi-biographical drama – directed by Andy Goddard and beautifully shot in black-and-white – focuses on a week in the life of the great poet, played by Celyn Jones, as he prepares for a series of performed readings in the US. Elijah Wood stars as John Malcolm Brinnin, the young Harvard grad responsible for drawing Thomas out to the States and preparing him for his tour. But Brinnin soon becomes swiftly overwhelmed by the Welsh hellraiser and his fiery recklessness, desperately attempting to get him sober ahead of the poet’s upcoming schedule. The relationship between the two men quickly dissolves into a mutually destructive clash of wills and egos.

SHIRLEY gives a fantastic performance as the neurotic ‘Shirley’, one half of a rural Connecticut couple who, as friends of Brinnin, throw a cabin party for Thomas in a boozy attempt at intervention ahead of his next speaking engagement.

Set Fire To The Stars features a bunch of stellar performances from its excellent cast, an accomplished original score by Gruff Rhys (from Welsh band Super Furry Animals) and offers a playful, humourous and moving snapshot of one of the world’s most beloved poets. Go see it in cinemas from 7th November! Here’s the trailer:
