Happy New Year All.
Catalyst’s first theatrical release to kick 2018 off will be FINDING YOUR FEET, which hits cinema screens in the UK on February 23rd. The film stars a host of National Treasures (if we may) including BAFTA award-winner and Oscar-nominee Imelda Staunton, BAFTA-nominee Timothy Spall, Celia Imrie and Joanna Lumley. It has already screened at festivals around the world – it opened the Torino Film Festival back in November and had its US Premiere at Palm Springs International Film Festival last week – where it won the Audience Award for Best Film!
If you were tuned in to Ken Bruce and Matt Everett on BBC Radio 2 last week, you would have heard the world exclusive play of Elkie Brook’s single ‘Running to the Future’ which was written and produced for the film. The single comes out on 26th January and the film’s original soundtrack will be out on the day of its UK release. You might also have heard the Absolutely Fabulous news that Joanna Lumley will be hosting the BAFTA Awards on the 18th February. Stephen Fry’s are big shoes to fill, but no doubt Joanna’s will be lovely.
We are very excited about our next release too… GHOST STORIES received rave reviews when it premiered at the BFI London Film Festival. The film is based on the Olivier-nominated stage production by Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson. The pair co-wrote and directed the adaptation for the big screen which stars Martin Freeman (The Hobbit), Alex Lawther (The End of the F**king World), Andy Nyman (The Commuter) and Paul Whitehouse (The Fast Show.)
The Sun hails it “The Best British Horror Movie for Years” and the Guardian calls it “A barnstormer of an entertainment, a fairground ride with dodgy brakes.” If you are brave enough, it will be haunting cinemas in the UK from Friday 13th April and in the States on 20th April.
