BRITISH FRIDAY: TRAILERS FOR 18TH CENTURY ADVENTURE SERIES 'MOONFLEET' WITH RAY WINSTONE, BEN CHAPLIN, ANEURIN BARNARD & 'FLEMING' MINI SERIES ON JAMES BOND CREATOR WITH DOMINIC COOPER & LARA PULVER

'FLEMING' MINI SERIES
DOMINIC COOPER IS JAMES BOND CREATOR
While USA is in its festive mood, we're staying today over in UK: first of we're presenting you Sky One's new four part mini series FLEMING with Dominic Cooper playing the man who invented and created famous spy James Bond. Lara Pulver, Annabelle Wallis, Samuel West and Rupert Evans also star in the drama which, set against the permissive society of war-torn London, where the Martinis were always flowing and beds always being swapped, explores the early life of the charming, enigmatic 007 author. The outbreak of World War II saw the young Fleming working as an unsuccessful stockbroker, with a failed army career behind him and living off his rich family, while indulging in the very Bond- esque passions of womanising, alcohol and erotic literature. It wasn't until he was forced to join Naval Intelligence that Fleming found his true calling. Using his mischievous sense of humour, sharp charm and vivid imagination, he was responsible for some of the most outrageously dangerous counter intelligence missions against the Nazis honing his inspiration for Bond in the process.

  1. Ray Winstone's looking pretty geezerish these days but still handsome!

  2. I remember a Fleming bio-pic from the early 90s, starring Jason Connery, that wasn't half-bad. I'm curious to see what they can do with more time to explore his past.

  4. Well, they say we should write what we know. I'm also a fan of that saying "we are who we are because of where we were when ..." Our life experiences shape us and should shape our art as well.

  5. Maybe I'm just super tired today and feeling crabby, but I'm not sure either of these picks are grabbing my attention today. I'll have to come back and rematch the trailers after a good nap ;)

  6. Every Friday should be British Friday. Just saying…

    I might watch the Fleming movie. Cooper seems just a little young for the part to me, but lately everyone seems too young. #gettingold :P
