Bald and sporting Christie’s round glasses, he was snapped shooting scenes in Glasgow, the handsome West End of which is being used to stand in for 1940s Notting Hill. Famously, Richard Attenborough played Christie in the spine-chilling classic ‘10 Rillington Place’ back in 1971, named after the scene of the killer’s horrific crimes, starring alongside John Hurt and Judy Geeson. The BBC drama will be told in three parts, with Roth starring alongside 'Minority Report’ star Samantha Morton as his wife Ethel, and Nico Mirallegro and Jodie Comer as Christie’s neighbours Timothy and Beryl Evans.
With a new ‘Hateful Eight’ trailer out this week, we get an even better glimpse at Quentin Tarantino’s eighth movie, a gritty, violent western starring, amongst his other regulars, Sam L. Jackson, Tim Roth, and Michael Madson. With that in mind, it appears there are, in fact, a number of similarities to his début film, ‘Reservoir Dogs’. As learned from the synopsis and as per the footage in the trailer, the plot’s about eight strangers - all bounty hunters - who become trapped overnight within the confines of a mountain shelter.
Like famished dogs, Quentin Tarantino fans are chowing down on every new detail from his upcoming Western ‘The Hateful Eight.’ Judging from the first trailer, the movie will not disappoint those who have come to expect the auteur’s trademark mix of gunplay and wordplay. (Though don’t expect much talking from Jennifer Jason Leigh, who plays a tight-lipped, black-eyed prisoner named Daisy Domergue.) Here, you can browse through the full set of character posters for the film, opening Christmas Day, to whet your appetite.
