Below you can enjoy the latest industry Trust’s Moments Worth Paying For campaign to bring you an exclusive trailer for the spectacular, touching drama about the dazzling double act.
Jon S.Baird (Vinyl, Filth) film will highlight the duo’s final tour, a film that promises laughs and possibly some heartstrings pulled. Like every ‘Moment’s Worth Paying For’ film, you have to watch it on the big screen. If you don’t in true Laurel And Hardy tradition You will get into a ‘fine Mess’!
Like the others in the Moments Worth Paying For series, the trailer directs audiences to the industry-funded film search engine, FindAnyFilm.com, which signposts legal content sources, so they can book, buy and watch at their convenience.
The Trailer below is short but sweet with Coogan and Reilly introducing the promo which contains unseen footage.
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 duo 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), their love of performing, as well as for each other, endures as they secure their place in the hearts of their adoring public.
We’re hoping to review Stan & Ollie, which comes to UK cinemas on January 11, 2019.
