Yes its finally here; and arriving next week in UK cinemas and we just cant wait to watch this film, there has been so much hype, with the film even acclaimed as one of the best films ever made; if not the best film ever made!

One thing I do know though is; since Black British director Steve McQueen started making films he has produced an excellent body of work to date  and “12 Years A Slave” is the icing on the cake thus so far. So this is a film that I for one will not miss and eagerness does not define the feeling truly that fills me at this moment in anticipation of seeing this film.

As mentioned numerous times to our supporters everywhere, its vital we all make the effort to go see this film on opening weekend and not wait until a later date, as its the opening weekend figures that configure distributors minds on whether or not they should engage in distributing particular genres of film, as we know Black Films have suffered over the last few years and the black population have complained no-end about the lack of quality black films arriving on these theatrical shores – so hey, gather friends and family together and lets all have a day out at the movies in harmonious momentum showing one and all that “Black Films Do Sell”

12 YEARS A SLAVE is based on an incredible true story of one man’s fight for survival and freedom.  In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery.  Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender) as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity.  In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon’s chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt)
forever alters his life.

12 YEARS A SLAVE stars Chiwetel Ejiofor (TALK TO ME), Michael Fassbender (SHAME), Benedict Cumberbatch (STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS), Paul Dano (LOOPER), Garret Dillahunt (NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN), Paul Giamatti (WIN WIN), Scoot McNairy (ARGO), Lupita Nyong’o, Adepero Oduye (PARIAH), Sarah Paulson (MUD), Brad Pitt (WORLD WAR Z), Michael Kenneth Williams (“Boardwalk Empire”), Alfre Woodard (“Steel Magnolias”), Chris Chalk (“Newsroom”), Taran Killam (THE HEAT), Bill Camp (LINCOLN).

The film is directed by British director Steve McQueen (HUNGER)
written by John Ridley (RED TAILS). 12yas_still_01_adf-03734
