Just a couple of things today… but good ones. Most interesting is the new US poster for Oranges and Sunshine, which finally adds Hugo Weaving and David Wenham. Cinema Blend debuted the image earlier today, and they also provide an HD version here.
The film, starring Emily Watson along with Hugo and David, opens 21 October in North America, so far only New York and LA have been confirmed for US screenings, and no specific venues have been announced. I’ll update when more info becomes available– given the online interest, surely a wide arthouse release is merited. (Also, those of you interested in seeing the film locally should ask your local arthouse to book it, and save it to your Netflix queue if you have one. The more interest people show, the more likely the film could be widely distributed.) Cohen Media owns the US rights, so keep an eye on their website too. The full slate of Canadian dates and venues can be read here.
Cloud Atlas is filming in both Mallorca and Scotland this week, with Hugo being sighted in the latter, but not photographed at work. I still think he’ll have at least a cameo in each of the six stories, given that he’s not playing any of the lead roles. But here’s another great pic (from Reuters) of Hugo filming the Luisa Rey segment in Glasgow last week. He plays contract killer Bill Smoke in that story.
