Mark Strong

1917 – UK Premiere

The world premiere for the film 1917 was held in London last evening. Daniel Mays, who portrays Sgt, Sanders in the film,  was in attendance along with many of the film’s incredibly talented cast. This was the World Premiere and Royal Film Performance, in support of the Film and TV Charity

1917:
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 in the US 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.

You can watch the premiere red carpet event livestream  – look for Danny’s interviews around the 11 minute and 41:30 minute marks.

It was truly an exciting evening for the cast, crew, and creatives. We wish them all the best as the film hits worldwide beginning Christmas Day in the US and then 10 January 2020 in the UK.

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.
