Churchill Trailer

"Try acting like a hero, Winston, and then maybe people will believe that you are one." Cohen Media Group has debuted a new US trailer for one of the other Winston Churchill movies in the works. This one is called simply Churchill, from Australian director Jonathan Teplitzky. Brian Cox stars as Churchill in the film, which examines a narrow frame of time in 1944 around D-Day and the decisions he was burdened with. The cast includes John Slattery, Miranda Richardson, Ella Purnell, James Purefoy, Richard Durden, and Julian Wadham. This is a very powerful trailer, with a number of strikingly bold shots of Churchill. There's great cinematography, a moving score, it seems like this might actually be worth watching when it opens. We're not sure when the other Churchill film will arrive, but this one hits theaters this June.

Here's the new official US trailer (+ poster) for Jonathan Teplitzky's Churchill, direct from YouTube:

Churchill Poster

June 1944. Allied Forces stand on the brink: a massive army is secretly assembled on the south coast of Britain, poised to re-take Nazi-occupied Europe. One man stands in their way: Winston Churchill. Behind the iconic figure and rousing speeches: a man who has faced political ridicule, military failure and a speech impediment. An impulsive, sometimes bullying personality. Obsessed with fulfilling historical greatness: his destiny. Exhausted by years of war and plagued by depression, Churchill is a shadow of the hero who has resisted Hitler's Blitzkrieg. Should the D-Day landings fail, terrified he'll be remembered as an architect of carnage. Churchill is directed by Australian filmmaker Jonathan Teplitzky, of the films Better Than Sex, Gettin' Square, Burning Man, and The Railway Man previously. The screenplay is by Alex von Tunzelmann. Cohen Media Group will release Churchill in theaters starting on June 2nd this summer.

    Brian Cox is the man. That is all.

      Yea, he sure is. Plus Miranda Richardson too. Both are great! Still...rah rah rah, Churchill the great, and all for me. And Slattery playing Ike?...and he does't even look anything even close to like Ike...he looks like Slattery....nah!
      • Hey Bo. I started watching Taboo. What a gripping story. Tom has such a charisma. Jonathan Pryce is great as usual, David Hayman is a delight, and Stephen Graham soemone I wish to see more on the screen. One thing just ticked me off: The camera used isn't fit for the show. It's like they shot it with a low end digital camera. You have more knowledge than me in cinematography, so I want to hear from you on this point.
        • Bo
          Good to hear you're watching Taboo, tarek. Hayman is very good in this right up to the last episode and I shall say no more. I really liked his work in this. Same with Stephen Graham. It's one of the many things I liked about the show. How they cast it and how well all the actors did with their parts, small or large. Another thing I liked about the show was it's look. It was probably shot digital, but for the look they were after I think it worked very well. That look being the gritty, dirty, dark environment of the time and place where all this took place. I can assure you that the cameras they used, whether it was digital or film, were the best available. I loved the well as the locations, the sets, the production design and the costumes. Hardy looked great in that hat and long coat. I just think this whole production was done top notch from top to bottom in all aspects of making a movie. The DP was the 2nd Unit director on Ridley Scott's The Martian. I am quite sure the look that you are having such trouble with is exactly the look they were trying to achieve and it really, really worked for me. To the point of my being impressed with it. You see, I thought much of the work was 'impressionistic' rather than just straight forward. The script, the dialogue, the characters, the photography, the sets and locations all worked in tandem to invoke an impression, a feeling if you will, beyond just story telling. I thought the whole thing was done masterfully and one of the best dramatic creative endeavors put on film or digital that I've seen in a long, long time. So, I hope my thoughts on the cinematography has helped you with your thoughts on it. It's what they wanted which doesn't necessarily mean you are going to like it, but as I said, I thought it was very well done and very impressive for the whole piece. Cheers.
          • Thanks for the info. I wish the cinematography was as murky and cinematic as Penny dreadful. But hey! who am I to call into question the choice of a talented DP. ;D
          • Bo
            You're welcome. Penny Dreadful. Yea, I liked that show. I liked it than got tired of it and stopped watching it after the first season. Then a good buddy said it was still very watchable so I began again and was better for it. Especially since Eva Green is a real favorite of mine. I also like Josh Harnett or however you spell his name. And then there was the great Brian Cox too. Thank the gods I tuned back in to see his wonderfully done demise. I have no clue why I abandoned it. I think all the witch, super natural stuff and Ms. Green screaming and carrying on on top of a table scene sort of turned me off to it. However, alls well that ends well and I was glad I returned to it and bummed it run for more seasons. The photography on that show was also well done, but not with the degree or height of greatness that Taboo did with the whole impressionistic aspect and all. That'd just be my opinion...later man.

    Looking forward to this!
    Poster is hot garbage. The trailer looks solid.
  • shiboleth
    This trailer is better than the last one, but still ... I don't know why is anybody making this?
  • Payne by name
    Given what the portrayal of Margaret Thatcher descended into in The Iron Lady, I can't help but be a little concerned that one persons interpretation of the man leads him to be portrayed as some bumbling, rude oafish fool.
