Summer Of Rockets Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Keeley Hawes

Summer Of Rockets

Summer Of Rockets is a new Stephen Poliakoff drama set around the beginning of the Cold War, circa 1957/58, and while I’ve not really been able to get into his earlier works, this one did seem quite accessible from the start.

It follows Russian Jewish inventor Samuel Petrukhin (Toby Stephens) who’s living with family in Britain, and the clever guy invents a staff locator, which is a pager, really. Accompanied by his colleague, Courtney (Gary Beadle), he also makes a packet by selling his version of the hearing aid, which is the first ever to include a volume control, and has a number of wealthy clients including one to Winston Churchill, who’s now in his post-PM days.

The Flood – Trailer 1 – Lena Headey, Iain Glen

The Flood
The Flood gives us Lena Headey (Fighting With My Family), as Wendy, a hardened immigration officer who’s offered a high-profile asylum case, judged on her ability to quickly and clinically reject applicants. Through her interrogation, she must uncover whether Haile (Ivanno Jeremiah) is lying and has a more sinister reason for seeking asylum.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood – Trailer 2 – Quentin Tarantino

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood now has a second trailer, and I definitely want to see this, but again, Tarantino can’t keep a rein on the length of a film as this one runs to 2hrs 39 minutes, according to IMDB.

The film is out in the UK on August 14th, but the US get it earlier on July 26th.

Check out the trailer below:

Downton Abbey 2019 – Trailer 1 – Hugh Bonneville

Downton Abbey 2019
Downton Abbey 2019 – The spin-off movie now has a full trailer, and the King and Queen are coming to tea. Yes, the family that gets it all for free now leeches off everyone else. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Much like the makers of this tripe.

The precise plot isn’t yet known, though, as it just states: “Adapted from the hit TV series Downton Abbey that tells the story of the Crawley family, a wealthy owner of a large estate in the English countryside in the early 20th century.”

The film is out on September 13th.

What We Do In The Shadows 2019 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Taika Waititi

What We Do In The Shadows
What We Do in the Shadows follows a quartet of vampires who’ve lived together for centuries, on Staten Island, and is the second programme starting on the BBC tonight (following BBC1’s Gentleman Jack), which has already begun on another network in the US. The Suranne Jones drama has so far half-aired on HBO, while this comedy has almost completely finished on FX.

Gentleman Jack Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Suranne Jones

Gentleman Jack
Gentleman Jack begins in 1832, and sees Suranne Jones (Save Me, Scott and Bailey, Doctor Foster) take the lead of landowner Anne Lister, who’s trying to transform her family estate, so it’s a bit like a 19th Century Homes Under The Hammer… possibly.
