The first Their Finest trailer has Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin and Bill Nighy in World War II
STX Entertainment has released the first trailer for the World War II comedy/drama Their Finest, starring Gemma Arterton (Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters), Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay) and Bill Nighy (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel). Check out the Their Finest trailer below, and see the movie when it opens on April 7.
With London emptied of its men now fighting at the Front, Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton) is hired by the British Ministry of Information as a “slop” scriptwriter charged with bringing “a woman’s touch” to morale-boosting propaganda films. Her natural flair quickly gets her noticed by dashing movie producer Buckley (Sam Claflin) whose path would never have crossed hers in peacetime. As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin, Buckley and a colorful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. Although Catrin’s artist husband looks down on her job, she quickly discovers there is as much camaraderie, laughter and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen.
Helmed by BAFTA-nominated director Lone Scherfig (An Education), Their Finest is produced by Stephen Woolley and Amanda Posey for BBC Films and HanWay, with British TV vet Gaby Chiappe (EastEnders) providing the script based on Lissa Evans’ 2009 novel.
