Paddy Considine gets behind the camera for his debut feature length film, TYRANNOSAUR





Most of us know Paddy Considine as quite a skilled actor of both the tv and film scene but here we have a film that has Paddy in the directors chair and has won him 2 awards and 1 nomination at this year’s Sundance film festival.

TYRANNOSAUR follows the story of two lonely, damaged people brought together by circumstance. Joseph (Peter Mullan, WAR HORSE, NEDS) is an unemployed widower, drinker, and a man crippled by his own volatile temperament and furious anger. Hannah (Olivia Colman, HOT FUZZ, PEEP SHOW) is a Christian worker at a charity shop, a respectable woman who appears wholesome and happy. When the pair are brought together, Hannah appears as Joseph’s potential saviour, someone who can temper his fury and offer him warmth, kindness and acceptance. As their story develops Hannah’s own secrets are revealed — her relationship with husband James (Eddie Marsan, HAPPY GO LUCKY, SHERLOCK HOLMES) is violent and abusive — and as events spiral out of control, Joseph becomes her source of succour and comfort. A gripping drama, defined by powerhouse performances and a deeply affecting story.

TYRANNOSAUR is a WarpX / Inflammable Films Production financed by Film4 and the UK Film Council in association with Screen Yorkshire, EM Media and Optimum Releasing. The film is due for release on October 7th 2011

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Webbed.
