Sick and tired of all this General election malarkey that’s been dominating our television coverage the past 48 hours? Well Lionsgate Films might just have the answer and they say it’s a ‘Good Old Crowd Pleaser’ and it’s called Their Finest.
Ahead of its general cinema release this Friday (21st April) those moral boosting nice folks at Lionsgate have shipped us over not one but six clips from the movie. A movie that shines a light on the war effort and female filmmakers especially with Gemma Arterton that young women attempting to succeed in a world that was then seen as a ‘man’s world’.
In this first clip, ‘Weeping In The Aisles‘ Catrin (Gemma Arterton) persuades Ambrose (Bill Nighy) to teach American soldier Carl Lundbeck (Jake Lacy) to act.
In the second clip, ‘I’d Miss You‘ as the scripting team struggle for an ending to the movie Catrin (Gemma Arterton) writes her own romantic ending for her and Buckley (Sam Claflin).But is it an ending to the film in question or something else?
In the next clip, ‘Not This Role‘ famous actor Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy) is shocked to learn he isn’t being considered for the lead role in a film.Is his age against him?
In the clip ‘About The Job‘ Catrin (Gemma Arterton) gets hired for an exciting role within the government.But as you’ll hear the government crudely won’t pay her the ‘male wage’ despite the war effort in need of help from the female population of the time.
This clip ‘Would You Do Him For Me‘ Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy) gets recognised as his famous detective persona, which twists his arm to take the role he was offered…
In the final clip, ‘ I Wrote It‘ Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy) mistakes screenwriter Catrin (Gemma Arterton) for a fan, not realising she wrote the script.
In Their Finest, we find ourselves in 1940, London, the Blitz; with the country’s morale at stake, Catrin (Gemma Arterton), an untried screenwriter, and a makeshift cast and crew, work under fire to make a film to lift the nation’s flagging spirits; and inspire America to join the war. Partnered with fellow writer, Buckley (Sam Claflin), the pair, along with fading matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy), reluctantly joins forces on a movie to warm the hearts of the nation and capture the imagination of the US public.
Their Finest will arrive in UK& Irish Cinemas this Friday, 21st April.Powered by Sidelines
