Ever had one of those days where everybody wants to kill you for something? This is the question Idris Elba’s character poses to Jim Terrier (Sean Penn) when the two are acquainted in this brand new clip from ‘The Gunman,’ released in cinemas on March 20th. Based on Jean-Patrick Manchette’s ‘Prone Gunman’ novel and a script by Peter Travis (‘Dredd’ director), ‘The Gunman’ follows Penn’s character, an international operative who is betrayed by the organization he worked for, and must go on the run in a relentless game of cat and mouse across Europe. Helmed by ‘Taken’ director Pierre Morel and also starring Jasmine Trinca, Mark Rylance, Ray Winstone and Javier Bardem, the synopsis for the film is as follows:
To celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th, Pathé has released this portrait of the women behind ‘Suffragette’ – the first feature film to tell the story of the ordinary British women at the turn of the last century who risked everything in the fight for equality and the right to vote. Depicted in the photograph are the stars of the film Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne-Marie Duff and Meryl Streep; the director, Sarah Gavron; the screenwriter, Abi Morgan; and the producers, Faye Ward and Alison Owen.
