Directed by Pablo Larraín Starring Kristen Stewart, Sean Harris, Sally Hawkins, Jack Farthing and Timothy Spall
The marriage of Princess Diana and Prince Charles has long since grown cold. Though rumours of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at the Queen’s Sandringham Estate. There’s eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. But this year, things will be a whole lot different. SPENCER is an imagining of what might have happened during those few fateful days
SPENCER will be released in UK & Irish cinemas later this year following its World Premiere at the Venice Film Festival on 3 September
This is something I have been putting together for quite a long time now and I have held off posting it or even attempting to start the blog post in fear that I have forgotten and somehow missed a favourite film from the list. Barring in mind I got up to 72 films and then had to cut it down to the 50. I would like to make clear these are my favourite films, some might have happened to win Oscars as well and some certainly have not at all. The way I have decided on my favourites is the sheer joy they bring and the number of rewatches I have had over the years. While I have listed 1-50 a lot of them can be shifted around and changed with each other. It is going to highlight my love for musicals and for certain actors and actresses! I doubt it will contain many surprises though!
FIRST LOOK IMAGE RELEASED AS PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY BEGINS
ON PABLO LARRAÍN’S PRINCESS DIANA FEATURE
STARRING KRISTEN STEWART
‘SPENCER is a dive inside an emotional imagining of who Diana was at a pivotal turning point in her life.’– Kristen Stewart
Principal photography has begun on SPENCER, which focuses on one weekend in the life of Princess Diana, as she spends the Christmas holiday with the royal family at the Sandringham estate in Norfolk, and decides to leave her marriage to Prince Charles. Filming will take place in Germany and the UK and an autumn 2021 launch is anticipated. 2022 marks the 25th anniversary of Diana’s death.
That’s right today Cineworld announced that Cinemas in England are scheduled to open on 10th July, obviously this is provisional but I certainly see it as a light at the end of the tunnel. The cinema is the place I have missed the most since lockdown and I really cannot wait to see a film on the big screen again!
Felt like celebrating with some images from movie scenes where they go to the cinema! Can you name all the films?
Monarch an agency which sets in motion many god-sized monsters. Showing that Godzilla actually now must protect the world in order to survive, the three-headed King Ghidorah being his biggest challenge.
Something very positive from 2018 was how many fantastic roles in film we had for women, this list was extremely difficult to put together this year as I certainly had a lot to choose from! That can obviously only be a very good thing in my opinion.
Here are the 25 performances that made it onto my list . . .
I have seen some fantastic films during 2018 and had a list of 22 films to dwindle down to make my top 10 best films list! Which was certainly a good thing but also some tough decisions. These are the films I went to see at the cinema in 2018 (click here) and these are 2018 films (click here) that I watched over the full year.
