Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw and Hugh Laurie are among the stars of Armando Iannucci ‘s new drama / comedy, The Personal History of David Copperfield.

Based on the novel by Charles Dickens, Iannucci promises a fresh take on Dickens’ semi-autobiographical story set in the 1840s. We’ll get o watch as Copperfield navigates a chaotic world to find his elusive place within it. From unhappy childhood to storyteller…

‘It was a joke. I’m sorry. I’ve been attempting to learn general men’s humour from a book

I love this line and its delivery. Also, I’ve seen both The Thick Of It Veep so I’m quite sure this should be good. Bring on the ‘madness!’

Sophie McShera, Aneurin Barnard, Benedict Wong, Peter Capaldi, Rosalind Eleazar, Morfydd Clark, Anthony Welsh, Ruby Bentall and Gwendoline Christie also star.

THE WEDDING GUEST (2018): New Trailer From Dev Patel, Radhika Apte, Jim Sarbh…

Written / directed by Michael Winterbottom, The Wedding Guest stars Dev Patel as a mysterious British Muslim on a journey across Pakistan and India…

I’ve never really pictured Patel as a bad guy macho kind of character. Having seen this trailer, I’m now convinced he’d probably do quite well in such roles. One might even go as far as to say… ‘Patel for James Bond!’

Did I take that too far? I took it too far didn’t I? Either way, I still wouldn’t object. Especially when you look at how many people objected about Daniel Craig. Now consider the giant success of his run as Bond.

Anyway, I digress. Patel is playing a different kind of character than I’m used to expecting from him and that’s why I’m drawn to this; along with all the mystery too, of course.

Harish Khanna, Nish Nathwani, Meherbaan Singh and Sidhu Manpreet also star.

The Wedding Guest Release Dates: March 1st, 2019 (US)…

Dev Patel, Armie Hammer, Nazanin Boniadi and Jason Isaacs are the stars of new historical drama / thriller Hotel Mumbai.

Directed by Anthony Maras, the premise is the true story of the 2008 terrorist attack in Mumbai, India at the Taj Hotel…

The stories of people working together to survive under extraordinary circumstances, that’s why I want to see this. It helps that this trailer looks good and the cast is reliable.

The beautiful images of India are an added bonus. Also, Hotel Mumbai kind of reminds me of Titanic (1997) – except that this time the terror isn’t because of an ‘iceberg, right ahead.’

Additional cast includes Anupam Kher, Angus McLaren, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Tilda Cobham-Hervey and Lauren Koopowitz also star.

Hotel Mumbai Release Dates: March 22nd, 2019 (US)…

Lion, directed by Garth Davis and starring Dev Patel, Rooney Mara and Nicole Kidman tells the true story of Saroo Brierley, a young boy separated from his family in Calcutta at age five and his journey to find them 25 years later…

Slumdog Millionnaire (2008) is the last great Dev Patel movie I saw. I’m sure there’s a handful I’ll get to soon but I’d really like to start with Lion. I can’t wait for the  happy ending – if only  for all the other times when the real life endings are far from happy.

David Wenham, Tannishtha Chatterjee and Benjamin Rigby also star.

Lion Release Dates: October 12th, 2016 (UK); November 26th, 2016 (US)
