'Bill' Sees 'Horrible Histories' Cast Hit The Big Screen [Trailer And Pictures]


Damian Lewis Simon Farnaby Mathew Baynton Helen McCrory

William Shakespeare has had a fairly difficult transition to the silver screen. Sure, his plays have been made into great film adaptations, but whenever the character is portrayed in movies, things seem to go a bit wrong. Thankfully, this new look at the life of the Great Bard is being made by the comedy troupe behind the BBC's television series 'Horrible Histories' and 'Yonderland'.

The comedy group have often been hailed as a modern Monty Python, yet more child-friendly. And now, after two celebrated television series, the cast have been unleashed in their first feature film from BBC Films. Filming in iconic UK locations around Yorkshire, the cast and crew shot in York Minster, Skipton Castle, Bolton Castle, Selby Abbey, as well as Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London.

Bill Trailer


A young and ambitious playwright in the time of Queen Elizabeth the 1st makes the travel to London to showcase his wares. The young bard's name? Bill. Young Bill has a play in mind that will one day become the talk of London and, considering how the Queen's personal playwright is far from up to scratch, may even be performed before the Queen herself. But when a group of revolutionaries decide to use the play as the staging point for their plot to kill the Queen, Bill must fight to not only put on a performance to launch his career, but save the audience from assassination. It's all in a day's work for William Shakespeare, however.

All Stars Trailer


Ethan and Jaden are two street kids with a close knit group of friends, Amy, Tim, Rebecca and Brian, who they enjoy spending time with at the Old Garage youth centre in their town run by Gina. However, the small venue has become more of a problem than a necessary building in the eyes of the council who wish to demolish it unless they can cough up enough cash to own it. In an attempt to raise a few pounds, Ethan and Jaden put forward an idea to Gina; to put on acts in a show and sell tickets. Initially sceptical at first, the worried Gina soon allows them free reign as they audition a variety of talent from martial artists to BMXers and skateboarders as well as a several street dancers. Will the kids manage to save their beloved centre, or will their only inspiration for their passions be bulldozed to the ground despite all their efforts?

Your Highness Review


Weak
Pineapple Express team McBride, Franco and director Green reunite for another freewheeling comedy, but fail to recapture the deliriously silly tone. Neither a wacky spoof nor an ironic comedy, this is just pointlessly goofy.

Thadeous (McBride) is the second son of the King (Dance), living in the shadow of his golden boy big brother Fabious (Franco), who has just returned from a quest with a bride, Belladonna (Deschanel). But on their wedding day, the evil wizard Leezar (Theroux) kidnaps her to complete his nefarious world-conquering plan. So Fabius and his loyal knights, along with Thadeuos and his esquire (Hardiker), set off to rescue her. Along the way they face treachery from within their ranks and team up with the fierce Isabel (Portman).

Bunny & The Bull Review


Very Good
With its homemade effects and strong emotional kick, this film feels almost like a Michel Gondry movie. Although a deranged sense of humour makes it thoroughly British. It's an odd concoction, but it gets under the skin.

Stephen (Hogg) has locked himself in his flat for a year, refusing to go outside. Then something disrupts his compulsive routine, and he starts reminiscing about a road trip he took with his chucklehead pal Bunny (Farnaby) just before he withdrew from life. Travelling around Europe, Bunny indulged in sex and rampant gambling, and it wasn't until they got to Poland that Stephen met a girl, Eloisa (Echegui). As they drove her home to Spain, they met various colourful people and had some life-changing adventures.
