  A gem from Gemma?
  SUMMERLAND follows the story of fiercely independent folklore investigator, Alice (Gemma Arterton) who secludes herself in her clifftop study, debunking myths using science to disprove the existence of other-worldly forces and magic. Consumed by her work, but also profoundly lonely, she is haunted by a love affair from her past.

When spirited young Frank, an evacuee from the London Blitz, is dumped into her irritable care, his innocence and wonder unlock deeply buried and painful secrets in Alice's past, and make her re-evaluate what it really means to free your imagination. Bravely embracing life's miraculous unpredictability, Alice learns that wounds may be healed, hope and second chances do exist, and any woman must defiantly be two things: who and what she wants.

From Britain's strongest new voice, the Olivier Award winning breakthrough writer/director Jessica Swale, SUMMERLAND inspires our audience with daringly honest and contemporary themes - an intensely emotional journey of womanhood and self-discovery, love and friendship.

SUMMERLAND features a phenomenal British cast including Gemma Arterton (The King's Man, The Girl With All The Gifts), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Misbehaviour, Belle), BAFTA Award winner and Academy Award nominee Tom Courtenay (45 Years, Doctor Zhivago), Penelope Wilton (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Downton Abbey), Lucas Bond (Of Kings and Prophets, The Miniaturist) and Dixie Egerickx (The Secret Garden, The Little Stranger).

SUMMERLAND will be released in UK cinemas on 31st July 2020.

  Cornish Clifftop Cinema 2020 [read more]
  Outdoor pursuits
  The team behind Europe’s original surf publication, Wavelength has just announced the summer’s line-up of cult classic movies set to screen from atop the clifftop at Watergate Bay, Cornwall. The cinematic summer schedule includes some of cinema's best movies, both contemporary and those that have stood the test of time, delivering a heady dose of nostalgia and entertainment in the most inspirational setting overlooking the sea near Newquay.

In addition to this epic line-up, from Sunday 2nd August, for three consecutive Sunday evenings, the widely-loved Fisherman's Friends band will be exclusively showcasing their story from tiny Cornish fishing village to global stardom, performing their world-famous shanties live from the clifftops before the 2019 movie airs.

Kicking off the cinematic-summer line-up on the Boardmasters festival site is Blue Juice with star Sean Pertwee attending the launch on July 24th for a media photocall opportunity. Fittingly celebrating its 25th birthday this year, the film is described as 'mind candy for those who like surfing and Cornwall'. Blue Juice was released in 1995, starring Sean Pertwee, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Ewan McGregor. The timeless flick follows a small, but hardy, group of British surfing enthusiasts who have learned to make the best of the flat waves and low tides of their homeland.

From Friday 31st July, on five consecutive Friday summer evenings, the team will be running 1991 American action-crime film Point Break, starring Patrick Swayze, Keanu Reeves, Lori Petty and Gary Busey. Full of energetic sequences and surf culture, megastar Reeves plays football star-turned-FBI agent who goes undercover as a surfer to track down a gang of bank robbers. Taking cinemagoers back to 1994, Saturday 1st August will air neo-noir crime film and Quentin Tarantino masterpiece, Pulp Fiction.

On Saturday August 8th, locals and holidaymakers alike can enjoy one of the most beloved films ever made, Grease, following the trials and tribulations of Danny and Sandy, head bopping to the catchy soundtrack and reciting those famously famous quotes. 2001 documentary film, Dogtown and Z-Boys which explores the pioneering of the Zephyr skateboard team in the 1970s and the evolving sport of skateboarding will be screened on Sunday 23rd August and Friday 4th September respectively. And cultural phenomenon, Back to the Future will screen on Saturday 29th August.

  IED - Improve Every Day [read more]
  Stay strong
  Stevie Richardson had always wanted to be in the army.

In 2010 at age 22, Stevie was severely wounded by an Improvised Explosive Device in Afghanistan, losing his career as a soldier and his sense of purpose. Several years of arduous recovery later after learning how to walk on prosthetics, Stevie is still in combat in civilian life, struggling with his new identity as a wounded veteran.

Kenny Simm (34), a former Royal Marines Commando and competitive Strongman, safely returned from Afghanistan to his family in Scotland but feels unable to fully adjust to life outside the military without the camaraderie of his fellow soldiers.

When the two veterans meet, Kenny inducts Stevie into the sport of 'Strongman', leading them on a bizarre and emotionally challenging journey to a competition run by Arnold Schwarzenegger in Columbus, Ohio. However, the road to Stevie's fulfillment is just beginning, testing his friendship with Kenny to its limit.

IED - Improve Every Day is available to rent and buy now on platforms including: iTunes, Prime Video, Vudu, Google Play, YouTube, Microsoft and Vimeo. Watch the trailer at the link.

  The Man in Grey on Blu-ray and DVD
  You, sirrah, are an absolute cad and a bounder and I bid you good day! I said good day!
  The definitive Gainsborough Melodrama, The Man in Grey stars James Mason in a career-defining role as the despicable Lord Rohan, alongside memorable performances from co-stars Phyllis Calvert, Margaret Lockwood and Stewart Granger. This quintessential "bodice ripper" is featured here as a brand-new High Definition transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Forced into an arranged marriage with the sadistic Marquis of Rohan, Clarissa Richmond is caught in a loveless relationship in order to provide Rohan with the heir he craves. When Clarissa's friend Hesther takes Rohan’s fancy, things take a turn for the worse.

Release Date for Blu-ray and DVD: 20 July 2020.

  Life in a Day 2020 [read more]
  Well, the first one was really good, so...
  YouTube Originals today announced that executive producers Ridley Scott (The Martian, Gladiator) and Kai Hsuing (Lords of Chaos), along with director Kevin Macdonald (Whitney, One Day in September, The Last King of Scotland), will create the new feature film, Life In A Day 2020, ten years after the original Life In A Day. On Saturday, July 25, 2020, millions of people around the world are encouraged to film their lives and tell the story of a single day on Earth. Footage sourced from the global contributors will be woven together in this documentary to tell the story of an ordinary day at an extraordinary time. Life In A Day 2020 will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival and on YouTube in 2021.

"Following the success of the 2010 documentary, this is an important moment to revisit this inventive film concept with Ridley and Kevin,” said Susanne Daniels, Global Head of Original Content for YouTube. "This project truly demonstrates the uniqueness of YouTube by showcasing the power of the human experience told through the eyes and cameras of individuals around the world.”

“Making the first 'LIFE IN A DAY' was one of the most joyful and eye-opening experiences of my life. Contributors were generous enough to share often quite intimate moments from their lives as part of a huge, life-affirming, film-making experiment," said Director Kevin Macdonald. "I am thrilled, ten years later, that we are making 'LIFE IN A DAY 2020.' In that time, how have we changed? How has our relationship to filming ourselves changed? And at this extraordinary turning point in history what are we hoping for in our future?"

  The Hand of God
  The industry starts to get back on its feet
  The Academy Award winning Paolo Sorrentino will write and direct The Hand of God for Netflix. Produced by Lorenzo Mieli for The Apartment Pictures, a Fremantle company, and Paolo Sorrentino, the film will be produced in Naples, Italy.

"I'm excited at the idea of filming in Naples again exactly twenty years after my first film. The Hand of God represents for the first time in my career an intimate and personal film, a novel of formation at once light-hearted and painful. I'm delighted to partake in this adventure with producer Lorenzo Mieli, his company The Apartment and Netflix. The mutual understanding between myself and Teresa Moneo, David Kosse and Scott Stuber from Netflix on the meaning of the film was immediate and dazzling. They made me feel at home, an ideal condition, because this is precisely what this film means to me: going back home," says Paolo Sorrentino.

David Kosse, Vice President, International Original Film at Netflix added, "I've always been a huge fan of Paolo Sorrentino so as soon as we were presented with The Hand of God, we knew that we wanted to partner with him and Lorenzo on this project. It's an honour to work with one of the greatest filmmakers in Europe and to bring his incredible story to the world."
