Their Finest star Bill Nighy to tour Australia
Transmission Films is delighted to announce that iconic British actor Bill Nighy will be travelling to Australia in April to celebrate the release of the upcoming film THEIR FINEST.
The BAFTA and Golden Globe award-winning actor will be charming Australian audiences at special event screenings in early April in Sydney and Melbourne.
From the producers of Carol and Brooklyn and the director of An Education, Lone Scherfig, THEIR FINEST also stars Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin and Jeremy Irons.
“The opportunity to host an actor as beloved as Bill Nighy is an absolute privilege. Audiences are sure to be charmed by him on and off-screen,” said Transmission Films Joint Managing Directors Richard Payten and Andrew Mackie.
Nighy became a household name after starring in Richard Curtis’s 2003 ensemble comedy hit LOVE ACTUALLY. His long list of film credits include Richard Eyre’s Academy Award, Golden Globe and BAFTA nominated NOTES ON A SCANDAL (2006); THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL (2011) and its 2015 sequel; Bryan Singer’s VALKYRIE (2008), with Tom Cruise; British rock comedy THE BOAT THAT ROCKED (2009). He is also unrecognisable as the tentacled pirate captain Davy Jones in Gore Verbinski’s PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN’S CHEST (2006) and PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD’S END (2007), and appeared as Minister Rufus Scrimgeour in David Yates’ Academy Award and BAFTA nominated HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS – PART ONE (2010). He is a Golden Globe and two-time BAFTA award winner.
Set during the London Blitz, with the country’s morale at stake, THEIR FINEST is the story of untried screenwriter Catrin (Gemma Arterton), and a makeshift cast and crew, working under fire to make a film to lift the nation’s spirits – and inspire America to join the war. THEIR FINEST is a witty, romantic and moving portrayal of a young woman finding her way, and her voice, in the mayhem of war… and the movies.
THEIR FINEST will open in cinemas nationally on 20th April with advanced screenings on the Easter long weekend.
Bill Nighy will be appearing at special event screenings in Sydney on Sunday 2nd April and Monday 3rd April at Randwick Ritz, Event Cinemas Bondi Junction, Palace Norton Street, Dendy Cinemas Newtown and Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace, Cremorne.
Bill Nighy will be appearing at special event screening in Melbourne on Tuesday 4th April and Wednesday 5th April at Cinema Nova, The Astor Theatre and Village Cinemas Rivoli.
