Steve Coogan and John C.Reilly play the iconic duo who inspired generations of comedic actors worldwide. Directed by Jon S.Baird (Vinyl, Filth), the film received some fantastic reviews with Coogan and Reilly receiving a lot of plaudits.
The film is still a few months away, Entertainment One has released a new taster of the upcoming film in the shape of a new clip. The clip is called ‘Way Out West‘ which sees our comedic duo arguing with Way Out West producer Hal Roach (Danny Huston), over pay on the film’s set…
The true story of Hollywood’s greatest comedy double act, Laurel and Hardy, is brought to the big screen for the first time. Starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly as the legendary movie icons, Stan & Ollie is the heart-warming story of what would become the pair’s triumphant farewell tour.
With their golden era long behind them, the pair embark on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. Despite the pressures of a hectic schedule, and with the support of their wives Lucille (Shirley Henderson) and Ida (Nina Arianda) – a formidable double act in their own right – the pair’s love of performing, as well as for each other, endures as they secure their place in the hearts of their adoring public.
Stan & Ollie will arrive in UK and Irish cinemas from 11th January 2019.
