I Made This For You, a searingly honest British feature film that tackles mental health, depression and suicide head on is now available to watch for free on Youtube globally. The release marks World Suicide Prevention Day and will be showing on the platform for a month until World Mental Health Day on October 10th.

I Made This For You follows a man, played by Gary Grant (Enemy Lines), who cuts himself off from his friends and family and has recently attempted suicide. He is pulled back from the edge by a documentary made about his life by a friend, played by director Cristian Solimeno (Guilt, Rush, Footballers Wives). His friends also include Alison Newman (Eastenders, Footballers Wives) , Dermot Murphy (Animals, The Drummer and The Keeper), Francis Magee (Star Wars: Rogue One, Game of Thrones) and West End star Siobhan Dillon (Cabaret, Grease, Sunset Boulevard, Miss Saigon).

The film within a film mixes reality with fiction in a unique and groundbreaking way. Despite the seriousness of the subject, what results is something funny, beautiful and deeply cathartic that provokes action and conversation.
Following the film, Director Cristian Solimeno also created the #imadethisforyou social campaign. The campaign invites people to take a moment out from their lives to try and make something for someone who is going through a hard time and share these acts of kindness for the week of World Suicide Prevention Day.

The aim is to create an explosion of love, kindness and creativity that empowers people to reach out and gives us the confidence to actually try. It can be a cake, a card, a jumper or a song. 

The point is to make things with other people in mind and to give these things away to show you care. Random acts of kindness count and can make a real difference.

vfwThe Movie Partnership & FANGORIA are excited to announce that their latest action-horror, VFW, will be celebrating its UK Premiere at FrightFest Glasgow 2020 on Saturday 7th March at the Glasgow Film Theatre ahead of its Digital Download release on 9th March.

Acclaimed Horror director Joe Begos (Almost Human, Bliss) & producers Amanda Presmyk (Dragged Across Concrete) & Dallas Sonnier (Bone Tomahawk) bring together this “insanely fun cast” (Bloody Disgusting) in “a gory and fun throwback to ’80s punk rock action movies” (Flickering Myth). VFW assembles cult film royalty featuring performances from Martin Kove (Karate Kid), Stephen Lang (Avatar), Fred Williamson (From Dusk Till Dawn) & William Sadler (Die Hard 2).

The film is set in the near future where the city has been reduced to a dystopian wasteland due to the scourge of “Hype,” a powerful narcotic that induces a simultaneous euphoric and aggressive state in its users. Kingpin Boz (Travis Hammer) impulsively asks a hyper to commit suicide for his own amusement; later, the girl’s teenage sister, Lizard (Sierra McCormick), slips into Boz’s lair and steals his Hype supply in revenge.

Lizard flees across the street to a decaying VFW hall, where she encounters Vietnam veteran Fred Parras (Stephen Lang) and a contingent of ageing soldiers who spend their days reminiscing about their lost youth, growing irrelevancy, and impending deaths. Presented with a final battle and opportunity to go down fighting rather than pass away ignominiously from old age, Fred and his men decide to protect Lizard and wage a final war against Boz, his henchmen, and the hypers.

VFW premiere tickets will be on sale from 12pm Monday 3rd February, via the festival website here: www.glasgowfilm.org/festival! However, don’t forget FrightFest also has weekend passes which will be on sale from Monday 20th January grab them quick to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the gore.

Applaudience: Avengers Endgame to break records

0

avengersendgame.jpgAvengers: Endgame set to become the top grossing film of 2019, surpassing £22 million in advanced ticket sales.

It will come as little surprise to most but after a very quiet Easter Box Office Weekend, data experts Applaudience have forecast that Avengers: Endgame will match the astronomical financial expectations set by the previous films, and is set to become the highest grossing film of 2019.

Due to the very warm weather over the Easter Weekend and the prospect of Avengers: Endgame launching in the following week, ticket sales were desperately low last weekend, without a single film making over the £1m mark.

This weekend’s forecast, however, will make delightful viewing for cinemas chains across the country, with 3.25% of the entire UK having already purchased advanced tickets.  As of Midday today, a staggering 1,177,613 tickets have been bought for Fri-Sun screenings and 2,148,092 sold over all dates.

This means that Avengers: Endgame has already made £12.1m in advanced ticket sales over the Box Office weekend and a further £10m across additional dates (based on an average opening weekend ticket price of £10.28 and all dates of £10.24).

Applaudience have confirmed that Avengers: Endgame will beat predecessor Avengers: Infinity War‘s hefty £29m Box Office opening weekend in 2018.

This will propel Avengers: Endgame to 2019’s No.1 and will take some feat to replace before the end of the year.

“Sold out” showtimes for Avengers: Endgame
Below are showtimes that are 95%+ sold out (only corner / front-row seats are left to book)

Regional Statistics

Applaudience data highlights how cinemas in the East of England have sold out of the greatest amount of Avengers: Endgame tickets in UK, with 34.3% of the total seats available in the region being pre-booked. This high percentage is closely followed by cinemas in the South East (28.9%) and East Midlands (28.5%). More rural regions of the UK such as Northern Ireland and Wales are less taken by Marvel madness, with only 15.3% of total seats available being sold out in Wales and 18.5% in Northern Ireland.

 

Applaudience have uncovered that the most popular time to head to the cinema for Avengers: Endgame this weekend is 7pm this Friday (26th April), with 80 cinemas reporting screenings that have sold-out or reached 95% capacity, with only corner and front-row seats left to book. 

However, time seems to be no obstacle for Marvel fans this opening weekend with 95% capacity sold out screening being reported every hour from 8am to 11pm across the opening weekend, with 904 screenings reaching this capacity in total over the weekend.

Most popular times: Friday: 17:00 – 21:00 | Saturday: 13:00 – 20:00 | Sunday: 13:00 – 16:00
