At last! Click on the link (below) for the trailer of Philippa Lowthorpe’s much anticipated new adaptation of Swallows and Amazons. And there is clearly much to look forward to when the film hits the silver screen on August 19th!
One thing is already apparent from the new trailer – the spectacular Lake District landscape around Derwentwater is once again one of the main stars of the film. It arrived courtesy of the Telegraph Film site this morning, and will undoubtedly whet the appetite for fans of Arthur Ransome’s classic adventure story. There are also strong hints of the murky underworld enveloping the Blackett’s ‘Uncle Jim’ played by Rafe Spall. This is undoubtedly the underlying theme behind the new adaptation, where adventure meets danger! Fittingly, a new pirate themed poster (below) was unveiled at the same time.
