Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond

Fleming - The Man Who Would Be BondBBC America will be airing Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond towards the end of January. The new show stars Dominic Cooper as the young Ian Fleming and is set in the period in the runup to World War 2.

Here's the official blurb:

Set at the outbreak of WWII – mischievous playboy Ian Fleming is untroubled by the specter of impending war – chasing women, collecting rare books and living off his family fortune. Forever in the shadow of his brother Peter (Rupert Evans, World Without End), and an eternal disappointment to his formidable mother Eve (Lesley Manville, Maleficent), Fleming dreams of becoming the ‘ultimate’ man – a hero, a lover, a brute and the one who always gets the girl. He is finally given some direction in his life when he’s recruited by the Director of Naval Intelligence, Admiral John Godfrey (Samuel West, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell), to help in the effort against the Nazis. Suddenly, Fleming finds his chance to shine and prove his worth.

At first, Fleming’s inclined to treat his new job in Naval Intelligence as a big adventure. But as he encounters the shocking consequences and challenges of war, he learns where his talents lie. With the somewhat skeptical support of tough-cookie Lieutenant Monday (Anna Chancellor, The Hour), Fleming’s ability to spin a tale makes him a perfect fit for espionage and quickly takes him from pushing paper to stealing secrets.

From the director of the BAFTA®-nominated Road to Guantanamo, Mat Whitecross, Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond captures both the opulence of high society London and the suspense and intrigue behind enemy lines. Through mind-blowing escapades at home and abroad, Fleming risks his life. At the same time, the stakes increase as Fleming faces his own inner demons, battling to breakdown the walls within and open himself to love. His chance encounter with the captivating baroness, Ann O’Neill (Lara Pulver, Sherlock), becomes a passionate affair that shapes both their lives. While Bond fans will spot many a nod to the legendary agent, the series is ultimately a gripping account of a playboy spy and the woman who won his heart.

 

Here's the extended official trailer for the show:

The show will be aired on Sky Atlantic in Ireland and the UK.

Fan Trailers With A Twist

Comments Off 12 September 2013

The number of mashups, edits and other creative videos that you can find on YouTube is constantly growing.

One of the many sub-genres are fan trailers with a twist. While the quality of some of these trailers isn't stellar, others are produced to almost the same standards as the big studios they're parodying.

Here are a couple that I came across that really blew me away.

Monty Python's "Holy Grail" as a serious historical drama:

What about a "happy" version of The Shining?

Robin Williams' hit comedy Mrs Doubtfire recut as a horror? Yeah someone's done that too:

There's literally hundreds of others out there. Some of them take the more "old style" approach to their treatment, like this Silence of the Lambs trailer:

Of course while I do enjoy these I still wonder how on earth people find the time to make them all! :)
