NEW WW2 MOVIES: PENELOPE WILTON, TOM COURTENAY, GUGU MBATHA RAW JOIN GEMMA ARTERTON'S 'SUMMERLAND'! 'HURRICANE' TRAILER AND POSTER WITH IWAN RHEON, SAM HOARE, STEFANIE MARTINI

   WW2 'SUMMERLAND' MOVIE
TOM COURTENAY AND PENELOPE WILTON JOIN GEMMA ARTERTON
Gemma Arterton is also producing the film
Another stellar line-up in the new casting updates arriving over from Cannes! Gemma Arterton's War War II drama SUMMERLAND has just added two acting legends Penelope Wilton and Tom Courtenay, and also Gugu Mbatha Raw who already starred with Penelope in Belle! I've previously already showed you a poster for the love story, in which Gemma plays fiercely independent writer Alice who secludes herself in her study: occupied by her work but also profoundly lonely, haunted by a love affair from her past. When spirited young Frank, an evacuee from the London Blitz, is dumped into her irritable care, his innocence and wonder awaken Alice’s
Gugu Mbata Raw and Penelope Wilton will star together again after Belle
deeply buried emotions. Bravely embracing life’s miraculous unpredictability, Alice learns that wounds may be healed, hope and second chances do exist, and any woman must defiantly be two things: who and what she wants.

  'HURRICANE' TRAILER
IS HERE WITH IWAN RHEON!
Speaking of WW2, I've also previously showed you an old poster for HURRICANE and now you can check out a new one alongside a new trailer
Hurricane is out in UK cinemas this September
too!  The movie has a rather British cast lead by Iwan Rheon, Sam Hoare and Stefanie Martini, alongside Mel's son Milo Gibson and Polish star Marcin Dorocinski. It is the story of a group of brave Poles who fought in the skies over England in WW2, not just to keep Great Britain free from the Nazis, but also to keep alive the very idea of their own country, which had existed in its modern form for barely twenty years before it was crushed under Germans. Equipped with the almost-obsolete Hurricane and (with some initial reluctance) given RAF blue uniforms, while they fought, Poland lived.

  2. WW2 stuff has generated quite a lot of interesting movies and tv dramas.
    Nevertheless, I wish there had never been a WW2, and hope there will never be a WW3. War sucks.

    1. Maybe the thing with ISIS already was WW3, with millions of refugees invading Europe.

  3. They do both sound good. Jason will be interested in Hurricane. You know he's all about those WW2 films.

    1. I'm surprised we don't have more or any WW1 wars this year given it is hundred years from its end.
