BGC Charity Day

Daniel Mays took part in the BGC Charity Day at Sunrise Brokers in London. Danny was representing the wonderful charity Haven House Children’s Hospice.

Every year, Cantor Fitzgerald and their affiliates, BGC Partners and GFI Group, in conjunction with the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, commemorate their 658 friends and colleagues and 61 Eurobrokers employees who perished on September 11, 2001 by distributing 100% of their global revenues on Charity Day to the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund and dozens of charities around the world. Since its inception, Charity Day has raised approximately $159 million globally. Each anniversary is a poignant occasion for the company. Charity Day is their way of turning a tragic day into one that is positive and uplifting by helping others.

Temple – Premieres 13 September

Just under three weeks to go until Temple premiers on Sky One!

Daniel Mays stars with Mark Strong and Carice van Houten in this darkly comic thriller.

Deep below the streets of London, descending past Temple tube in the beating heart of the city, lies a dark secret. An illegal clinic has been set up in an abandoned subterranean network of tunnels.

Daniel (Mark Strong) is a surgeon driven by personal tragedy to treat anyone who is willing to pay for medical help outside the system. Aided by Lee (Daniel Mays), a disgruntled transport employee, and Anna a guilt-ridden medical researcher, they treat a variety of increasingly desperate and highly dangerous patients, as Daniel’s morality is tested to the limit.

Temple is a story of fate, chaos and consequence and asks how far you would go to save the person you love.

Premiering at 21:00 on Friday 13 September and with all episodes available online at Sky

1917 – First Trailer

The first trailer for the epic World War I Film 1917 was released today:

Synosis from official website: Sam Mendes, the Oscar®-winning director of Skyfall, Spectre and American Beauty, brings his singular vision to his World War I epic, 1917.

At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (Captain Fantastic’s George MacKay) and Blake (Game of Thrones’ Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers—Blake’s own brother among them.

1917 is directed by Sam Mendes, who wrote the screenplay with Krysty Wilson-Cairns (Showtime’s Penny Dreadful). The film is produced by Mendes and Pippa Harris (co-executive producer, Revolutionary Road; executive producer, Away We Go) for their Neal Street Productions, Jayne-Ann Tenggren (co-producer, The Rhythm Section; associate producer, Spectre), Callum McDougall (executive producer, Mary Poppins Returns, Skyfall) and Brian Oliver (executive producer, Rocketman; Black Swan).

The film is produced by Neal Street Productions for DreamWorks Pictures in association with New Republic Pictures. Universal Pictures will release the film domestically in limited release on December 25, 2019 and wide on January 10, 2020. Universal and Amblin Partners will distribute the film internationally, with eOne distributing on behalf of Amblin in the U.K.

The film’s cast is a who’s who of acting talent including Daniel Mays, Andrew Scott, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch, RIchard Madden, and many others.

This is certainly one of the most anticipated film releases of 2019.

Released on Christmas Day, 2019 in the USA and 10 January 2020 in the UK.

More updates to come!

Fisherman’s Friends DVD/Digital Debuts at #1!

We are so happy to report that Firsherman’s Friends has had a smashing first week release via DVD, Blu-ray, and digital platforms!

Fisherman’s Friends sails straight to Number 1 on the Official Film Chart
https://www.officialcharts.com/p/26883

 Fisherman’s Friends reels in the Number 1 spot on the Official Film Chart, knocking Captain Marvel to second place in what was an extremely close race.

The biographical comedy-drama based around the story of the major label-signed, sea shanty-singing group comes in at the top of the chart. The official soundtrack for the film spent three weeks in the Official Singles Chart Top 40 upon the film’s release in March, becoming the band’s third Top 40 collection.

The second brand new entry this week, on digital downloads only, is Alita: Battle Angel (3); starring Rosa Salazar & Christoph Waltz. Based on a 1990’s manga, it follows a revived, amnesiac cyborg as she sets out on a quest to find out who she was in her past life.

Previous Number 1 Fighting With My Family drops two to Number 4, while Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse hangs on at Number 5. How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World falls two to Number 6.

Thanks to the on-going success of Toy Story 4 in cinemas, the original Toy Story claims a fourth consecutive week in the top tier at 7; Bohemian Rhapsody climbs two to 8; Ant-Man And The Wasp flies 16 to Number 9, and finally, Toy Story 3 drops to Number 10.

Fisherman’s Friends is now available to on DVD, Blu-ray, and digital platforms.

Thanks to BASE.org for the fantastic news today!

Two For Joy – UK Television Premiere

Two for Joy premieres on Sky Cinema Channel at 10:10AM and 10PM.

Vi has been forced to grow up fast; mother-daughter roles are reversed, Vi is Aisha’s carer as well as trying to control her rascal younger brother Troy, who with no father figure and a struggling mother, is a law unto himself – something must give, the situation must change.

TWO FOR JOY has been conceived and developed over the last six years through a series of short films and photo projects by Tom Beard. It’ll be a bold, unique and distinct departure from your classical social-realist film, while un-voyeuristically exploring and bringing into the public eye the consequence of some serious, British, topical themes that are often short-changed by the government, and under-represented on our screens.

Daniel Mays stars as Lias.

Fisherman’s Friends – Now Available on DVD and Digital!

Fisherman’s Friends – the feel-good film of the year- is now available on DVD, Blu-Ray, and digital platforms!

A fast-living, cynical London music executive (Danny Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he’s pranked by his boss (Noel Clarke) into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen (led by James Purefoy). He becomes the ultimate ‘fish out of water’ as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. As he’s drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he’s forced to re-evaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means.
