Why see them? Well, if you're a P&P fan in general, you'll see and recognize a trio of P&P actors who played Lizzie Bennet (P&P 2005), Bingley (Lost In Austen 2008), and Darcy (P&P 1995) crossover from 3 different P&P adaptations all in the same film being directed by the talented Wickham (P&P 2005) in Steve. What's not to like, eh? LOL! See an old header banner I made of them below...
Plus, Lady Catherine (and guess which guy from mega-hit The Avengers film surprisingly played her son in this short film?) has her own internet dating going on there in Friend Request Pending, haha...
Judi Dench is a neophyte in the complicated landscape of internet dating in “Friend Request Pending.” Colin Firth is an unusually needy neighbor to Keira Knightley and Tom Mison in “Steve” (directed by Rupert Friend).
The STARS IN SHORTS release will open in theaters throughout the US and Canada beginning September 28th and will continue to expand in the following weeks. A list of participating theaters are available by clicking on the DATES & LOCATIONS.
Together with the theatrical run, these great films films will be available on iTunes Stores in 54 countries across the globe and on Pay Per View beginning October 9th.
