Red Riding trilogy trailer online
We wonder where the talent of British cinema is, well it's here, on British television, and the mini-series created for British television is now getting world wide exposure with screenings at American Film Festivals and a national release.
The films are superb, coming from some powerful novels by David Pearce (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com) which are actually four books rather than a trilogy, and connects characters and stories across the years of the murders by the Yorkshire Ripper and the investigation and his eventual capture.
The three films are Julian Jarrold's Red Riding: 1974 James Marsh's Red Riding: 1980 and Anand Tucker's Red Riding: 1983, but they share the same screenwriter, Tony Grisoni, and the cast includes Sean Bean, Paddy Considine, Mark Addy, Andrew Garfield, Rebecca Hall.
It's now great news that the series is getting released elsewhere than the UK, and perhaps it will mean that we'll get a chance to see the film versions in the cinema too.
Here's the very powerful trailer for you to have a look at, and if you want to see it in high definition, head over to Apple Trailers. Apologies it's autoplay.
Honestly, I recommend you watch these films, they are brilliant and feature a host of talent both in front of and behind the camera, and it tells a powerful story.
Also, if you see it now, you'll have a head start on the alleged remake from Ridley Scott that was rumoured back in October last year, although I really don't see that happening to be honest, especially not now with this release.
