This year’s BFI London Film Festival will include screenings of Philomena starring Dame Judi Dench, a Charles Dickens biopic detailing a mysterious long-standing affair and the “untold story” of Mary Poppins, starring Emma Thompson.
Lasting 12 days, it will include appearances from Daniel Radcliffe, Sandra Bullock, Carey Mulligan, and Ralph Fiennes, with 234 features films and 22 world premieres in venues across the city.
The festival will open on October 9 with Captain Phillips, a thriller starring Tom Hanks based on the 2009 hijacking of US container ship by a crew of Somali pirates.
It will close on October 20 with Saving Mr Banks, the story of how Mary Poppins made it to the big screen starring Emma Thompson as author P.L Travers.
Inside Llewyn Davis, the latest Coen brothers film premiered in Cannes this year, will also be shown, starring actress Carey Mulligan and singer Justin Timberlake, along with Palme D’or winner Blue is the Warmest Color.
Carey has arrived at the Venice Film Festival, and has been straight out onto the red carpet for Miu Miu Women’s Tale, looking lovely in a simple shift dress and some quirky tortoiseshell sunglasses. Hopefully she will be making more appearances over the weekend! Thanks to Holly for the HQ pictures.

Another new theatrical trailer for Inside Llewyn Davis has recently been released online – although it’s similar to the others that have aired, it does have a few new little bits. Watch it in full below:
Writer Abi Morgan’s career is career is going from strength to strength, flitting between stage, television and films such as Shame and The Iron Lady. She has another politically charged script with with The Fury ready to go, and Shame’s Carey Mulligan is now in talks to take one of the lead roles.
From the sound of it, The Fury will also be something of a reunion for Morgan and Sarah Gavron, who directed Morgan’s first screenplay, the adaptation of Monica Ali’s Brick Lane.
Most of the details about The Fury are being kept quiet for now, though we do know it’ll be an ensemble piece that follows several members of the suffragist movement, which saw women fighting for the right to vote. Though Emmeline and Christabel Pankhurst were the most famous examples of the movement, there are many stories to be told about the time, so we’d expect the new film to weave together several examples.
Focus Features and Film 4 are working together to back this one, but there’s no word on a start date yet. Mulligan will next show up in the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis, which is out on January 24. Morgan’s next film will be Ralph Fiennes’ Charles Dickens film The Invisible Woman, due to be released on February 7.
The soundtrack to the Coen Brothers’ upcoming and already much buzzed about new film “Inside Llewyn Davis” will be released on September 17 via Nonesuch Records. Produced by T Bone Burnett, the folk-inspired album includes 12 songs performed in the film by cast members Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan and more.
“Inside Llewyn Davis” marks the Coens’ fourth collaboration with T Bone Burnett. His soundtrack to 2000’s “O Brother Where Art Thou?” nabbed five Grammy Awards including Album of the Year. “Llewyn Davis,” which will be distributed in the US via CBS Films on December 6, premiered at Cannes in May, where it won the Grand Prix. Starring Isaac, Timberlake, Mulligan, and Coen regular John Goodman, it’s a portrait of the folk music scene in 1960s Greenwich Village.
