Details of the World Premiere event for jetset action/horror Airborne starring Mark Hamill (Star Wars) and Gemma Atkinson (How To Stop Being A Loser) have been revealed today.
On Friday May 11th the movie will premiere at 8:30pm on not one but five prestigious UK screens at the same time as part of the prestigious British Independent Film Festival.
The five screens are the Empire Leicester Square (in London), the Empire cinemas in Poole and Newcastle and the Apollo Cinemas in Port Talbot and Stafford.
Airborne is directed by Dominic Burns (Cut!, UFO) and produced by Simon Phillips (The Last 7, Strippers Vs Werewolves) and Jonathan Sothcott (Elfie Hopkins, Devil’s Playground) and the cast also includes Andrew Shim (This is England), Julian Glover (Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade, The Empire Strikes Back), Alan Ford (Snatch, Cockneys Vs Zombies) and Billy Murray (Rise of the Footsoldier, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare).
Airborne is Mark Hamill’s first UK feature film since Return of the Jedi nearly 30 years ago. An international genre icon for his portrayals of Jedi knight Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy, Hamill is also well loved for his portrayal of The Joker in the animated Batman series.
Chelsea Films will be releasing Airborne on Region 2 DVD in July.
