THE WEEK THAT WAS: ENTERTAINMENT & TV (03/08/18)
3rd August 2018
Isle of Dogs Does Good
To mark the home entertainment release of the latest Wes Anderson film, Isle Of Dogs, Twentieth Century Fox have partnered with The RSPCA. To re-create a scene from the film they used famous pups such as Marcel le Corgi, Cockapoo Marley, Doug the Therapy Pug and Steven the Frenchy to support Staffordshire Bull Terrier rescue dog, Emily, in a bid to raise awareness around homeless dogs. This was a great collaboration to give voice to an important cause.
Grey Goose and Film 4 Partner Up
Grey Goose have partnered with Film 4’s Somerset House to host a series of talks. The “Behind the screen with Grey Goose” series will offer a film-themed talk which will accompany the events put on by Film4. The first installment will be on August 10th with set designer Stella Fox and art director James Price, who will be in conversation with journalist Bridget Arsenault to talk about the creativity and processes that take place behind the scenes. We love the concept of the BTS access to the films being shown, snap up tickets quick!
Marvel’s Antman and The Wasp make a big statement
A tiny double decker bus roamed the streets of London this week to celebrate the release of Marvel’s latest film Antman and The Wasp. The mini (and fully-driveable) bus had an advert for the movie on its side. Stunts like this can be hit or miss, however, this has been given rave reviews and ultimately increased awareness for the release with its fans.
Love Island Comes To An End
As Love Island comes to an end, we look back over what has claimed to be the most controversial series ever, with 4,200 Offcom complaints. The main incident causing these being ‘that’ video sent to Dani Dyer causing tears. Whilst Dani has since defended the show for doing this, ITV are taking this as a positive claiming this could increase views next time around.
