Nothing like a fresh, original plot... and this is nothing like, etc
William (Aneurin Barnard) has failed to kill himself seven times, ten, if you count the cries for help. He's tried everything but nothing seems to work. It's got so bad he's begun to think he might be immortal.
Ageing hitman Leslie (Tom Wilkinson) is a one-man euthanasia clinic with a good heart but an increasingly shaky hand. His new boss at The Guild of Assassins is all about quotas and Leslie's been reduced to searching suicide hotspots for potential clients to help him meet targets. It's his last-ditch attempt to delay enforced retirement for another year.
Following a chance encounter on a bridge, William realises he could use Leslie's professional help. With so many attempts and zero success, it's obvious an experienced cold-blooded killer is exactly what William needs. After browsing through Leslie's brochure "Your Death...Your Way" William settles on "quick and painless". It’s not exactly the hero’s death he’d always dreamt of but it's all he can afford.
With the contract signed, and the promise from Leslie of "no garrotting", William waits for the inevitable.
But with death assured within a week (or his money back), William feels a weight lift. For the first time in his life he finds something worth living for. However as Leslie is concerned, their contract is binding...
DEAD IN A WEEK (OR YOUR MONEY BACK) releases in the UK from 16 November, exclusively in ODEON Cinemas nationwide. Try the trailer above.
Tom Baker, Joe Sugg and Caspar Lee take a ride on the wild side in the first full-length UK trailer of Wonder Park. Click the link.
Iconic British voice talent Tom Baker (Boomer) and YouTube sensations Joe Sugg and Caspar Lee (Gus & Cooper) join the stellar Hollywood cast of Jennifer Garner, Matthew Broderick, John Oliver, Mila Kunis, Norbert Leo Butz and Brianna Denski for the UK and Irish release of Wonder Park.
Wonder Park tells the story of a magnificent amusement park where the imagination of a wildly creative girl named June comes alive.
Eureka Entertainment to release John Schlesinger's YANKS, a moving and romantic WWII tale of love starring Richard Gere and Vanessa Redgrave, in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition as part of the Eureka Classics range from 3 December 2018.
A World War II epic both sweeping and intimate,Yanks is a triumph for directorJohn Schlesinger (Midnight Cowboy, Sunday Bloody Sunday), and a moving showcase for its splendid ensemble cast led by Richard Gere and Vanessa Redgrave. A war film without battle scenes, Schlesinger's drama instead focuses on relationships far from the front, examining the romantic entanglements between the stationed U.S. soldiers and the locals in a small town in Northern England in the 1944 period before the Normandy landings.
Three very different women find themselves attracted to the American G.I.s at a new military base in town. Gere is Sgt. Matt Dyson, initiating a tentative courtship with a young woman still pining for her fiancée overseas. Redgrave is wealthy socialite Helen, engaged in an affair with a captain (William Devane), while both of them long for their respective spouses far from home. And Sergeant Ruffelo's fling with Mollie (Wendy Morgan) occurs just as the interactions between the Yanks and their British hosts begin to strain under the tension of the war, and uncertainty about what happens to their new romances.
A personal passion project for Schlesinger -- who was given free creative rein after the success of Marathon Man (1976) -- Yanks was generally not afforded the attention it deserved upon initial release, and as one of the director's warmest films, it's a gem ripe for rediscovery.
