Shelter UK Trailer

We are big fans of Paul Bettany here at FemaleFirst and he makes the move into the director’s chair for the first time this week with Shelter.

As well as being in the director’s chair making his debut, Bettany has also penned the film’s screenplay. The producers of All Is Lost are also on board.

Take a look at the UK trailer for the film:

Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Mackie take on the central roles of Hannah and Tahir and are joined on the cast list by Rob Morgan, Amy Hargreaves, Bruce Altman, and Kevin Geer.

Hannah (Connelly) and Tahir (Mackie) come from two different worlds but fall in love while homeless on the streets of New York.

Shelter explores how they got there, and as more is revealed about their pasts, it’s clear that they need each other to build a future.

The film is an unsparing story of loss, love, sacrifice, redemption and, ultimately, hope.

Shelter is out now.

9 Clip

The animation movie genre really has a had a good year so far with the likes of Up, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs and Monsters vs Aliens all doing well at the box office.

And this trend looks set to continue with the Tim Burton produced movie 9.

When 9 (Wood) first comes to life, he finds himself in a post-apocalyptic world.

All humans are gone, and it is only by chance that he discovers a small community of others like him taking refuge from fearsome machines that roam the earth intent on their extinction.

Despite being the neophyte of the group, 9 convinces the others that hiding will do them no good.

They must take the offensive if they are to survive, and they must discover why the machines want to destroy them in the first place. As they’ll soon come to learn, the very future of civilization may depend on them.

Take a look at a sneal peak clip from the movie:


Creation Premiere

Paul Bettany has had a busy week promoting his new movie Creation, in which he plays Charles Darwin.

Not only did the movie open the Toronto Film Festival, the first non Canadian film to fo so in a few years, but the film also received it’s UK premiere on Sunday night.

Darwin’s great, still controversial, book on The Origin of Species depicts nature as a battleground. In Creation the battleground is a man’s heart.

Torn between his love for his deeply religious wife and his own growing belief in a world where God has no place, Darwin finds himself caught in a struggle between faith and reason, love and truth.

This is not the grey-bearded old man that most people imagine when they think of Darwin. The Darwin we meet in Creation is a young, vibrant father, husband and friend whose mental and physical health gradually buckles under the weight of guilt and grief for a lost child.

Ultimately it is Annie, his adored 10 year-old daughter who leads him out of darkness and helps him reconnect with his wife and family. Only then is he able to create the book that changed the world.

Take a look at footage from the premiere and clips from the movie:
