Oscar® nominee and Emmy®, Golden Globe®, Screen Actors Guild® and Tony® Award winner Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) has signed on to star and executive produce the new SHOWTIME event series YOUR HONOR which will stream exclusively on Stan in Australia. The series is a legal thriller that rips through all strata of New Orleans society. Cranston will star as a respected judge whose son is involved in a hit-and-run that leads to a high-stakes game of lies, deceit and impossible choices. The 10-episode event series will be executive produced by Emmy nominees Robert and Michelle King (The Good Fight, The Good Wife). Peter Moffat – whose Criminal Justice served as the basis for The Night Of – serves as showrunner, executive producer and will write multiple episodes, including the first episode. YOUR HONOR will go into production later this year in New Orleans. The announcement was made by Gary Levine, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc., at the Television Critics Association’s Winter Press Tour.

“Peter, Michelle and Robert have crafted an original thriller with gut-wrenching suspense, raw emotion and moral complexity,” Levine said. “And we are simply ecstatic that Bryan Cranston, one of the planet’s finest actors, shares our enthusiasm and has agreed to play the lead. I can’t wait to shoot YOUR HONOR and show it to the world!”

In addition to four Emmys, a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild  award recognition for Breaking Bad, Cranston has also earned Academy Award® and BAFTA nominations as lead actor for Trumbo. He received a Screen Actors Guild Award and Emmy and Golden Globe nominations as actor in a limited series for All the Way – itself adapted from the Broadway production that gave Cranston a Tony Award. In 2018, Cranston won the Lawrence Olivier Award for his stage performance in Network in London, whose current run on Broadway has been extended into April.

Earlier in his career, Cranston received three Emmy nominations as best supporting actor in a comedy series and a Golden Globe nomination for his performance in Malcolm in the Middle. His numerous other credits include Sneaky Pete (which he co-created and executive produced) and Argo, as well as an Emmy-nominated guest performance on Curb Your Enthusiasm, and prominent guest appearances on such series as Seinfeld. Cranston also has three Directors Guild nominations, including the rare feat of nominations in the same year for directing a drama (Breaking Bad) and a comedy (Modern Family). He shared in three Producers Guild awards with the team from Breaking Bad.

YOUR HONOR, produced by CBS Television Studios in association with King Size Productions, is being adapted from the Israeli series Kvodo, created byRon Ninio and Shlomo Mashiach, produced by Ram Landes and airing on the country’s Yes TV. Liz Glotzer (The Good Fight, Castle Rock, The Shawshank Redemption), Alon Aranya and Rob Golenberg (Hostages, Betrayal) of Scripted World and James Degus will also serve as executive producers.

 

Marvel have just released a brand new clip from their new epic blockbuster – Captain Marvel. Directed by Anna Boden (Sugar, It’s Kind Of A Funny Story) and Ryan Fleck (Half Nelson, Gowanus Brooklyn) and starring Brie Larson (Room, Kong: Skull Island), Gemma Chan (Mary Queen Of Scots, Humans) and Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, The Hateful Eight) the film hits cinemas on the 8th March.

Following two sold out screenings at Monster Fest in Melbourne last November, where it took out the ‘Golden Monster’ for Best Film, we are pleased to present in association with Umbrella Films ONE NIGHT ONLY screenings of LORDS OF CHAOS on Friday February 22nd in cinemas across Australia & New Zealand.

Set in the world of Norwegian black metal, and combining an 80s/90s period setting, the blackest of black humour and brutally visceral scenes of violence, LORDS OF CHOAS is ‘metal’ in every sense of the word – and an experience you’re sure to never forget. The only thing crazier than the film itself is the fact it’s based on the very real – and very violent – actions of an infamous Norwegian black metal crew. Drawing from his experience as the drummer in a black metal band, director Jonas Åkerlund brings a level of authenticity to the screen rarely seen along with the unmistakable style that made his music video work so memorable.

Uncork’d Entertainment is proud to announce the North American theatrical and digital release of the acclaimed Australian crime-drama West of Sunshine.

A captivating social-realist story from debut feature filmmaker Jason Raftopoulos, the celebrated film – hot from an outstanding response, complete with standing ovation, at the Venice Film Festival – tells of a father who has less than a day to pay back a gambling debt, while looking after his young son.

Featuring powerful performances from Damian Hill (“The Leftovers”), Ty Perham, Arthur Angel (Red Dog), Kat Stewart (“Underbelly”), Eliza D’Souza (Predestination) and Kaarin Fairfax (“Picnic at Hanging Rock”), Welcome to Sunshine is a “nigh-perfect slice of inner city Australian cinema” (Filmink) that befittingly finds its home alongside Aussie crime drama classics like Chopper and Two Hands.

Synopsis : Separated from his family and caught in a cycle of gambling and debt, Jim has less than a day to repay a violent loan shark. His day is turned upside down when he must look after his young son. Jim’s relationship with his son is tested as his plans to pay back the loan fail. When his last desperate effort to repay the debt puts his son’s life at risk, he must make a choice between his past and a second chance at life.

Opening theatrically January 25, and releasing on VOD January 22, West of Sunshine is being distributed by Uncork’d Entertainment.

Created and Directed by Shaun Anthony Robinson and Produced by Lucinda Bruce (Lady of the Light Productions), “That’s Not a Knife; it’s an Aussie Actors Journey to Hollywood” is for anyone with a dream, the underdog story of an actor, who fights back against the odds by overcoming his own fears and creating his own path to Hollywood, documenting his journey along the way. He meets other actors who share their own fears and insecurities with him, helping help him to understand his own journey better and inspire others to do the same. Matt Nable sits down with the team at ‘That’s Not A Knife’ to talk about the highs and lows of his career, his transition from football to acting, mental health, his own demons and the challenges he faced to get where he is today. During the interview, Nable discusses how he got some of his biggest roles, “The Director said to me, do you know why you got the job… You got the job because Vin had seen the tape and said ‘that’s a man with pain in his face, that’s what I want’.”

The former Rugby League Footballer turned actor, lives in Sydney and is currently in development on his latest project, “A Sunday in the Village”. His journey, and several others are highlighted in the documentary that has traveled to Los Angeles and all around Australia to interview some of our most well known talent, to some of the lesser known creatives making their own way in the industry.

“For every person over there who’s made it really big, there’s lot of people there that are struggling, that are chasing this, their ambition, their dream, and not to say that it won’t happen cos I’m living proof that when someone says he looks that way we want them, so they’re right to stay at it and they’re very, very talented people.” – Matt Nable. “Real. Raw. Relentless.” To date, the documentary has interviewed Aaron Jeffries (X-Men: Origins, McLeod’s Daughters, Chopper);. Shane Connor (Neighbours, Fire); Christian Isaiah (Shameless (US)); Matt Burch and Froylan Tercero (Operation Repo); Kym Jackson (Ten days in the Valley); Craig Bennett (Studio 10 Hollywood Reporter and Gossip Guru); and Orpheus pledger (Home and Away) with many more to come.
