It Snows In Benidorm….and New Zealand

GV Film Ltd were happy to continue a long running history of theatrical trailers for Parkland Entertainment with ‘It Snows In Benidorm’. Working closely with Parkland and Magus Marketing we crafted the trailer to build on Parkland’s impressive UK release of Timothy Spall’s previous release with Parkland, ‘The Last Bus’. GVFilm also created re-formatted and re-cut social media assets.

Before the UK release the trailer was also used by Rialto Distribution in New Zealand racking up almost a quarter of a million hits on Youtube alone.

Bank worker Peter lives a grey life in Manchester dealing with late repayments and posting daily about the weather. After an unexpected early retirement, he decides to visit his brother in Benidorm only to discover that he has disappeared. As Peter searches for clues, his encounters with an eclectic cast of characters only lead to further confusion. In looking for his brother, can he rediscover himself? Timothy Spall excels as a downtrodden man struggling to impose sense on the events around him, in a hapless detective story played out to a carnivalesque backdrop of Brits abroad. Director Isabel Coixet (The Bookshop) takes inspiration from producer Pedro Almodovar by creating a bold combination of deadpan reality and fantastical imagery in a tale about everything – and nothing.

‘It Snows in Benidorm’ is in UK & Ireland cinemas on August 19

Making Tracks

A brand new trailer and social media assets for the Parkland Entertainment release of ‘Making Tracks’.
We worked hard with the film producers and Magus Marketing to craft this trailer showing Lucy (April Pearson ‘Skins’, ‘Disconnected’) and Chris (Chris Willoughby) who are cut adrift in their thirties and struggling to remember what initially attracted them to one another and wondering where they go from here… Cue an impulsive decision to spend a fortnight interrailing around Europe’s most romantic destinations, in the hope that this might save their seemingly doomed relationship. What ensues is bold, bonkers and a comic treat as Chris and Lucy travel through the backdrop of Europe’s most beautiful cities with chaos, debauchery and disaster following them at every turn!
Available on U.K. Digital channels to own or rent from October 5th.

The Rifleman (Blizzard Of Souls)

UK trailer for Parkland Pictures with all production in-house at GVFilm as we continue remote workflows during the Covid-19 Crisis.

The Rifleman pays stark witness to the horrors and brutality of the First World War, as seen through the eyes of an innocent 17-year-old farm-boy turned soldier. Though he is underage, and his dad, a former marksman, is overage for the army, they are both conscripted into one of Latvia’s first national battalions. The thrill of training is soon followed by reality, as shells burst around them in the endless mud. He grows up on the battlefield, fighting at the side of his father and brother, their lives are constantly in jeopardy. Adapted from the book by Aleksandrs Grins, which was banned in the U.S.S.R., the story was based on Grins’ own war experiences in a Latvian battalion.

Out now in selected UK Cinemeas across the country.
Available on digital download from August 10, 2020, and on DVD from August 24, 2020.
