Considine's Tyrannosaur trailer looks great
Paddy Considine is a great actor, he's given us some great roles and he can turn his hand to some really subtle acting and some great character roles too. He is fantastic in front of the camera, but how is he behind? Well Tyrannosaur is his first feature film that he's written and directed, the first he's directed even, and unlike some stars he's not going to lead it either.
He's pulled together some great actors for the film, and the trailer is looking very strong. I wonder if Considine is making a new name for himself.
The tone of Tyrannosaur is far from what I expected, but I don't mean that in a bad way I mean that in a good way. First of all there's the excellent actor Peter Mullan who looks to be delivering a hell of a range of a character, from the angry and violent to the emotionally scarred and tender.
Then there's Olivia Colman who looks to have a strong role too, not to mention the fact that Eddie Marsan, a cracking actor, also stars. Of course let's not forget the reason we're here, Paddy Considine the writer and director, the first feature film he's delivered both for, although you might remember that he wrote Dead Man's Shoes.
Here's the blurb for Tyrannosaur:
Tyrannosaur is the story of Joseph (Peter Mullan), a man plagued by violence and a rage that is driving him to self-destruction. As Joseph's life spirals into turmoil a chance of redemption appears in the form of Hannah (Olivia Colman), a Christian charity shop worker. Their relationship develops to reveal that Hannah is hiding a secret of her own with devastating consequences for both of them.
Well that really doesn't do it justice, what you need to do is watch the following trailer to really get a taste of the film.
Now that's going to be good isn't it? Some great performances to be had, and I do hope they, and the film, get the recognition it looks as though they deserve.
