1ST PHOTOS FROM PERIOD SET MOVIES 'KEEPERS' WITH GERARD BUTLER, 'GUERNSEY' WITH MICHIEL HUISMAN, MATTHEW GOODE, GLEN POWELL, 'FINAL PORTRAIT' WITH GEOFFREY RUSH, ARMIE HAMMER

'THE FINAL PORTRAIT'
FIRST PHOTOS WITH GEOFFREY RUSH AND ARMIE HAMMER
First photos from some of the upcoming period set movies this Monday, starting with Stanley Tucci's FINAL PORTRAIT, a drama which he wrote and also directed, out in cinemas this August in UK and Germany. Geoffrey Rush plays Swiss painter and sculptor Alberto Giacometti who, back in Paris, 1964, bumps into his old friend, the American critic, James Lord (Armie Hammer), and begs that he sits for a portrait because he has an interesting face. It'll just take a couple of days in his studio. Lord is flattered by the request and as the days go by and turn into weeks and weeks seemingly with no end in sight he realises his entire life has been hijacked by this erratic genius. The portrait continues to ebb and flow. Veering between frustration and joy, Lord ultimately sees logic in the artist's chaotic mind and together we witness a genius complete one of his last masterpieces.

1ST 'KEEPERS' PHOTOS
GERARD BUTLER THRILLER
First photos have also been released for Gerard Butler's thriller KEEPERS inspired by the Flannan Isle mystery. A small relief boat approaches the Isle, a tiny isolated island 20 miles off a rugged coast. Its aim is to routinely replace the three lighthouse keepers, after 6 weeks alone manning the light. It nears the dock and none of the men greet them. The winch is broken. A call. Nothing. Experienced keepers Thomas, James and Donald have vanished. The lamps are clean and refilled; the table is laid for dinner. There is an upturned chair. Two sets of yellow oilskins are missing. The men were never found. Peter Mullan also stars.

1ST 'GUERNSEY' PICS WITH

Two photos with Michiel Huisman and Lily James from the big screen adaptation of GUERNSEY are also here.

  1. Keepers is definitely on my list of films I'd like to see this year. I do like a good mystery.

  2. Armie Hammer has one of the most forgetably bland faces in all of Hollywood. It's not believable that anyone would find that mug interesting enough to paint.

  3. I read The Guernsey Potato Peel book a few years ago. Interesting that it is becoming a movie.

    1. it took them about a decade to finally make it, and then they ruined it by casting a horrid lead actress
