PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY HAS WRAPPED ON “THE AFTERMATH”

FOR FOX SEARCHLIGHT PICTURES AND BBC FILMS

 

Starring Keira Knightley, Alexander Skarsgård and Jason Clarke

 

LOS ANGELES, CA March 9, 2017 – Fox Searchlight Pictures and BBC Films announced today that principal photography has wrapped on THE AFTERMATH, which was shot on location in Prague and Hamburg. The film is directed by James Kent (TESTAMENT OF YOUTH, THE THIRTEENTH TALE) from a script written by Joe Shrapnel & Anna Waterhouse (RACE), and Rhidian Brook, based on Brook’s international best-selling novel of the same name. The film stars Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley (THE IMITATION GAME, ANNA KARENINA), Alexander Skarsgård (THE LEGEND OF TARZAN, “True Blood”) and Jason Clarke (ZERO DARK THIRTY, EVEREST). Additional cast includes Flora Thiemann (MISSION: SPUTNIK), Fionn O’Shea (THE SIEGE OF JADOTVILLE), Kate Phillips (“The Crown”) and Martin Compston (“The Line of Duty”). Jack Arbuthnott and Malte Grunert produced and Ridley Scott and Carlo Dussi executive produced. Developed by BBC Films, it is executive produced on their behalf by Joe Oppenheimer and Beth Pattinson. The film is supported by funding from the Filmförderung Hamburg – Schleswig Holstein.

 

THE AFTERMATH is set in postwar Germany in 1946. Rachael Morgan (Keira Knightley) arrives in the ruins of Hamburg in the bitter winter, to be reunited with her husband Lewis (Jason Clarke), a British colonel charged with rebuilding the shattered city. But as they set off for their new home, Rachael is stunned to discover that Lewis has made an unexpected decision: They will be sharing the grand house with its previous owners, a German widower (Alexander Skarsgård) and his troubled daughter. In this charged atmosphere, enmity and grief give way to passion and betrayal.

 

Joining Kent on the film are director of photography Franz Lustig (HOW I LIVE NOW), production designer Sonja Klaus (A GOOD YEAR, BABYLON AD) costume designer Bojana Nokitovic (A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD, CORIOLANUS), hair and make-up designer Barbara Kreuzer (LAND OF MINE, RETURN TO MONTAUK) and editor Beverley Mills (“Indian Summers,” “Call the Midwife”).

 

The film is overseen by Co-Heads of Production David Greenbaum and Matthew Greenfield and VP of Production Katie Goodson-Thomas.

Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” reveals key voice cast and characters

DISNEY·PIXAR’S “CARS 3” ROLLS OUT KEY CAST & CHARACTERS

 

Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion, Lea DeLaria and Lewis Hamilton

Join Franchise Favorites on the Big Screen

BURBANK, Calif. (March 9, 2017) — Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” reveals key voice cast and characters, featuring award-winning stars. According to director Brian Fee, the roster includes both new and returning characters. “We’re introducing some fun and really appealing characters in ‘Cars 3,’” said Fee, “so we really wanted to find the right voices to help us breathe life into them. We hit a homerun with this group; I couldn’t be happier.”

Following are the newcomers and “Cars” franchise veterans who join the previously announced voice talent and characters: Owen Wilson as world champion racer Lightning McQueen, Cristela Alonzo as unconventional trainer Cruz Ramirez, and Armie Hammer as sleek next-gen racer Jackson Storm.


NEWCOMERS

  • Kerry Washington (ABC’s “Scandal,” HBO’s “Confirmation”) lends her voice to Natalie Certain, a highly respected statistical analyst who knows her numbers. Book-smart and mathematically gifted, Certain may earn top marks in her ability to evaluate a racer’s stats, but she could be underestimating the importance of determination.
  • Nathan Fillion (ABC’s “Castle,” ABC’s “Modern Family”) voices Sterling, a brilliant businesscar who runs Rust-eze Racing Center—one of the most successful elite training facilities in the country. The always dapper Sterling comes across as unassuming and laid back, but business is business, and Sterling is driven to ensure all of his investments pay off. 
  • Lea DeLaria (Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black”) provides the voice of Miss Fritter, a local legend at the Thunder Hollow Speedway demolition derby. Fritter’s formidable school-bus size is intimidating, but it’s her smoke stacks of doom, razor-sharp stop sign and crazy collection of her victims’ license plates that usually steers her opponents in the other direction.

 

LANE CHANGE

Three-time Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton was called on to voice Hamilton, a fully loaded, built-in voice command assistant to high-tech trainer Cruz Ramirez. When Lightning McQueen takes his training off road, Cruz enlists Hamilton’s help to keep the struggling racer on track.

RETURNING FAVORITES

“Cars 3” also welcomes the gang from Radiator Springs back to the big screen, including Lightning McQueen’s best buddy Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy), and #95’s No. 1 fan Sally (voice of Bonnie Hunt). Friends supporting their hometown hero include Fillmore (voice of Lloyd Sherr), Sarge (voice of Paul Dooley), Lizzie (voice of Katherine Helmond), Ramon (voice of Cheech Marin), Sheriff (voice of Michael Wallis) and Flo (voice of Jenifer Lewis).

Loyal transporter Mack (voice of John Ratzenberger), big-hearted Italian Fiat 500 Luigi (voice of Tony Shalhoub) and charming little Italian forklift Guido (voice of Guido Quaroni) continue to support Lightning McQueen’s racing endeavors. World-renowned sports announcer Bob Cutlass (voice of Bob Costas) is still calling the races, and Chick Hicks (voice of Bob Peterson) is back—this time as a commentator on the Racing Sports Network. The lovable duo Dusty (voice of Ray Magliozzi) and Rusty (voice of Tom Magliozzi) return as Rust-eze’s chief proprietors—though they have big things in store for Lightning McQueen.

A glimpse of Golden Globe® winner Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins

Here is the first glimpse of Golden Globe® winner Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins in “Mary Poppins Returns,” the all new sequel to Disney’s 1964 film “Mary Poppins.” 

Directed and produced by Rob Marshall, “Mary Poppins Returns” also stars Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer and Julie Walters with Colin Firth and Meryl Streep. The film, which introduces three new Banks children, played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and newcomer Joel Dawson, also features Dick Van Dyke and Angela Lansbury.

The film is set in 1930s depression-era London (the time period of the original novels) and is drawn from the wealth of material in PL Travers’ additional seven books. In the story, Michael (Whishaw) and Jane (Mortimer) are now grown up, with Michael, his three children and their housekeeper, Ellen (Walters), living on Cherry Tree Lane. After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins (Blunt) re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack (Miranda), uses her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Mary Poppins also introduces the children to a new assortment of colorful and whimsical characters, including her eccentric cousin, Topsy (Streep).

The film is produced by Marshall, John DeLuca and Marc Platt.  The screenplay is by David Magee based on The Mary Poppins Stories by PL Travers with Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman writing all new songs and Shaiman composing an original score.
