Idris Elba & Franz Drameh in First UK Trailer for Drama '100 Streets'
"Without our passion, it's very hard for us to find our place in the world." Vertigo Films has debuted an official UK trailer for a London-based indie drama titled 100 Streets, about three people and three stories that reflect modern day London. Idris Elba stars with young actor Franz Drameh, plus a cast including Tom Cullen, Gemma Arterton, Kierston Wareing, Ken Stott, Ryan Gage, Ashley Thomas and Kola Bokinni. Elba plays a famous retired rugby player who gets involved in drugs. This is a very powerful trailer and they definitely got my attention, but I'm hoping the film isn't convoluted from all the different stories it's following. I really do like the way this looks and feels, I'm curious to check it out sometime soon.
Here's the first official UK trailer (+ poster) for Jim O'Hanlon's 100 Streets, direct from YouTube:
Update! Here's an alternate US version of the official trailer for 100 Streets, also found on YouTube:
Three people, three extraordinary stories. All lived out within a hundred London streets. The film is a "layered and gripping drama, which takes a fresh look at the vibrant and compelling life of residents in contemporary London – destination capital of the world." 100 Streets is directed by Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Irish filmmaker Jim O'Hanlon, who has been working in TV for a long time, directing episodes of "Undercover", "A Touch of Cloth", "The Deep", "Emma", "Waking the Dead", "The Bill" and "Bad Girls". The screenplay is by Leon Butler. The film premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival. 100 Streets opens in UK theaters starting November 11th this fall, but it doesn't have a US release set yet.
