Their faces grace the covers of national magazines, and heads turn when they walk down the street.

But this season, they threw themselves into revivals of two highly regarded plays, he as the physically afflicted title character in “The Elephant Man,” by Bernard Pomerance, and she as a schoolteacher in “Skylight,” by David Hare.

Bradley Cooper and Carey Mulligan, both Oscar-nominated film stars, are now both Tony Award nominees and are embracing the stage, even as they continue to manage Hollywood careers. “The Elephant Man,” which closed on Broadway in February at the end of a limited run, is transferring to London this summer; “Skylight,” which ran in London last year, is scheduled to play until June 21 in New York.

The two have never worked together, although they have had a number of cinematic near-misses: He auditioned, unsuccessfully, to portray her husband in “The Great Gatsby,” while she sought, also unsuccessfully, a role in “Silver Linings Playbook.” Ultimately, as show business would have it, they met through a shared publicist and have since become friends.

The world premiere for Carey Mulligan’s new film “Far From the Madding Crowd” is currently taking place in London, and the first images from the event are now up in the gallery. More on the way!

The first teaser trailer for Carey Mulligan’s upcoming drama “Suffragette” has just been released online, and you can watch it below. Carey Mulligan plays Maud and Meryl Streep stars as noted British political activist Emmeline Pankhurst. “Suffragette” has a U.K. release date of October 30, with no date set for the US as of yet.

“Suffragette” is an intense drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement as they fought for the right to vote, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalised and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. The character of Maud, played by Carey Mulligan, is one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is both heart-breaking and inspirational.

Focus Features has acquired the North American rights to “Suffragette”, the new film starring Meryl Streep, Helena Bonham-Carter and Carey Mulligan. Directed by BAFTA Award winner Sarah Gavron from a script written by Emmy Award winner Abi Morgan, the film is set for a Fall 2015 domestic release.

The cast of the U.K. film includes Academy Award nominees Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter, BAFTA Award winner Ben Whishaw, British Independent Film Award winner Anne-Marie Duff, Golden Globe Award nominee Brendan Gleeson, and three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep. Focus has also acquired the distribution rights for Latin America, India, South Korea, and most of Eastern Europe including Russia; Universal Pictures International will release the film in those territories. Focus CEO Peter Schlessel made the announcement today.

“Suffragette” is produced by Faye Ward and Alison Owen, Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane) directs the cast.

“Suffragette” is a moving drama that empowering all who are striving for equal rights in our own day and age. The stirring story, inspired by the early-20th-century campaign by the suffragettes for the right of women to vote, centers on Maud (played by Carey Mulligan), a working wife and mother who comes to realize that she must fight for her dignity both at home and in her workplace. Realizing that she is not alone, she becomes an activist alongside other brave women from all walks of life. The early efforts at resistance were passive but as the women faced increasingly aggressive police action, the suffragettes become galvanized – risking their very lives to ensure that women’s rights would be recognized and respected.

Peter Schlessel, CEO of Focus Features, said, “Suffragette is a story that will resonate with men and women across the generations; it is about parents and children, courage and dedication, and making hard choices. Sarah, Abi, Alison and Faye are women who represent an amazing convergence of filmmaking talent. We’re proud to partner with Pathé to bring this powerful drama to audiences worldwide.”

The deal was negotiated by Focus Features’ Beth Lemberger, Executive Vice President, Business Affairs, and Lia Buman, President of Acquisitions, with Cameron McCracken, Managing Director, Pathé Productions, and Muriel Sauzay, Head of Sales, Pathé International.

Streep plays political activist Emmeline opposite Mulligan’s Maud – a fellow activist in the feminist movement – in the project from Pathé, Film4 and the BFI Film Fund.

Speaking about the importance of International Women’s Day, Streep said: “Every daughter should know this history, every son write it on his own heart.”

Meanwhile, Gavron said: “International Women’s Day celebrates the achievements of women throughout the world and I am overjoyed that my film can be part of that celebration.

“The story of the ordinary British women who were willing to sacrifice everything in their fight for the right to vote is an inspiration to all of us in our ongoing fight for equality.”
