‘Wreckers’ World Premiere Yesterday

Posted by Mia with No Comments

Claire Foy’s new movie ‘Wreckers‘ finally had its world premiere during the 55th BFI London Film Festival yesterday. Visit CumberBatchWeb for some shots of Claire Foy at the screening as well as their website BenedictCumberbatch.co.uk to read their review of the film. They had nothing but good things to say about Claire as Dawn:

Claire Foy, luminous throughout. … As Dawn Claire Foy is highly personable giving a very natural performance which grounds the film. We share in her confusion at the events that surround her and she keeps the audience on side even when making some truly terrible decisions. … Wreckers is a haunting, compelling tale of secrets and lies, anchored by superb performances from it’s central trio of rising British stars.

The movie is also short-listed for an award at the festival: Director D.R. Hood for ‘Best British Newcomer’ (source). The movie is scheduled for a theatrical release in the UK mid December and it will be made available on Curzon on Demand service shortly afterwards.

‘The Promise’ Blu-ray Screencaptures – Part 3

Posted by Mia with No Comments

I finally added Blu-ray screencaptures of Claire Foy as Erin Matthews in the third part of the gripping drama ‘The Promise‘. This episode doesn’t feature as much footage of Erin but even so her journey gets more exciting. She goes to see Omar at his home by herself and invites him inside Eliza’s home, which leads to trouble and another epileptic fit. Through the diary Erin finds out how her granddad also suffered from those. After connecting with Paul things go further than planned and Erin takes off by herself to occupied Hebron and into the city’s closed off ‘sterile zone’ which of course again leads to trouble. Expect screencaptures from the final and even more tumultuous final episode later this week – enjoy!

Eileen Atkins quits “Upstairs Downstairs”

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Dame Eileen Atkins has said she will not appear in the next series of period drama Upstairs Downstairs, a show which she helped create.

The veteran actress conceived the idea for the original show – which ran from 1971-1975 – along with its star Jean Marsh, but did not appear until the series’ 2010 revival in which she played Lady Holland.

However according to the BBC News website Dame Eileen has opted out of the next series amid reports she is “unhappy” with the direction the scripts are taking.

“It’s with much sadness that we say goodbye to her wonderful character, the straight speaking mother-in-law Lady Holland,” a BBC statement said.

“However we respect her decision and will be announcing new star casting soon.”

The next six episodes of the show – which follows life above and below stairs in the home of a wealthy diplomat’s family – are due to begin filming in October, and will be broadcast in 2012, following the show’s successful revival last Christmas.

Co-creator Jean Marsh is the only cast member to have appeared in both the original and the 2010 version, which also featured Ed Stoppard, Claire Foy and Keeley Hawes.
