Today sees the theatrical release of two big films featuring Ealing Live veterans.
The biggest of these is Michael Bay’s latest mega-budget sfx extravangaza, Transformers: Age of Extinction – starring Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles and our very own James Bachman as Gill Wembley. The film sees those metal giants hunted down by the humans, and the rise of the Dinobots at last!
The film is released in most territories today, with UK release following next week, and much of Europe throughout July – for a full list of release dates, check out imdb. Bachman and his wife attended the US première in New York City earlier this week, and pictures of the pair are all over Getty images if you’re thataway inclined.
Here in the UK, romantic musical comedy Walking on Sunshine (originally titled Holiday) finds its way into cinemas today, featuring Katy Brand as part of its ensemble cast, which also features former X-Factor winner Leona Lewis and Being Human star Annabel Scholey. The feel good flick features a variety of 80s pop classics reworked to drive its ‘boy-meets-girl’ narrative along, including songs by Madonna, The Human League, Duran Duran and Roxette.
You can see trailers for both very different films below, and whilst there’s no news of a wide release for Walking on Sunshine across the world just yet, a handful of other countries have been announced, and we’ll bring you news of release in major territories should we find it.
