KIM CATTRALL, TOBY JONES, BILLY HOWLE JOIN AGATHA CHRISTIE'S 'WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION' BBC SERIES! 'HIDDEN FIGURES' TRAILER WITH TARAJI P. HENSON, OCTAVIA SPENCER

  'WITNESS FOR PROSECUTION'
KIM CATTRALL LEADS BBC SERIES
Only a week or so ago I informed you that young Andrea Riseborough has been picked out as the first cast member of BBC's new Agatha Christie two part series adaptation of THE WITNESS FOR THE PROSE- CUTION and now Kim Cattrall, Billy Howle and Toby Jones have joined her too!
THE WITNESS FOR THE PROSE- CUTION is set in 1920's London following the brutal murder of the glamorous Emily French (Kim Cattrall)  that shocked the neighbourhood. All evidence points to Leonard Vole (Billy Howle), a young man who just happens to have been left the heiress's enormous fortune. But Leonard, despite the claims of Emily's housekeeper Janet (Monica Dolan), is adamant that he is innocent and turns to his chorus girl partner Romaine (Riseborough) to help him prove it. Toby Jones will play Leonard's solicitor, John Mayhew, while David Haig will be King's Counsel, Sir Charles Carter.

  'HIDDEN FIGURES' TRAILER
TARAJI P. HENSON, KEVIN COSTNER AND OCTAVIA SPENCER
Here's a female centric trailer for you: the first one for period set drama HIDDEN FIGURES starring two award winning actresses Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer! Opening next January  it brings the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe). These brilliant African American women worked at NASA. And they helped guide a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence. Their work turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big. Kevin Costner and Kirsten Dunst also star.

  2. I think I will love Hidden Figures. I didn't know about these amazing women and it's about time their story was told. Also it will be nice to see something positive and uplifting. The political climate here is so wretched and depressing.

  4. Hidden Figures trailer is wonderful. January 2017! Okay I'm sorry but the picture of that guy from Witness for the Prosecution makes him look guilty as sin. If that guy called out to me with that look on his face, I'd keep walking. Run if he tries to follow me. That expression looks like a guy who buried his mother in his back yard with his roses. *shudders* *shudders again*
