Timothy Spall & Phyllis Logan in New US Trailer for 'The Last Bus' Film
"You don't have to do this?" "Yes I do." Samuel Goldwyn Films has debuted a new official US trailer for The Last Bus, a film from the UK made by Scottish filmmaker Gillies MacKinnon (Behind the Lines, Hideous Kinky, Tara Road, Castles in the Sky, Whiskey Galore). The film is about an elderly man named Tom whose wife has just passed away, and he decides to use only local buses on a nostalgic trip to carry her ashes all the way across the UK to Land's End, where they originally met, using his free bus pass. This is a heartwarming story that, obviously, got the attention of everyone he met along the way and has now been made into an uplifting film about remembrance. Timothy Spall stars as Tom, and he's joined by Phyllis Logan, Grace Calder, Celyn Jones, Brian Pettifer, Colin McCredie, Iain Robertson, and Marnie Baxter. This looks super sweet and charming, even though it's about a bumbling old man. Looks quite nice - check it out.
Here's the official US trailer (+ new poster) for Gillies MacKinnon's The Last Bus, direct from YouTube:
John O'Groats, Scotland: An elderly man, Tom (Spall), whose wife has just passed away uses only local buses on a nostalgic trip to carry her ashes all the way across the UK to Land's End, where they originally met, using his free bus pass. Unbeknownst to Tom, his journey begins to capture the imagination of the local people that he comes across and, ultimately, becomes a nationwide story.
