In the Heart of the Sea - London Film Premiere

In the early 1800s, Owen Chase (Chris Hemsworth) is offered a spot as First Mate on the New England whaling ship Essex. The problem is, he was promised a position as Captain on the voyage, but George Pollard (Benjamin Walker), the less-experienced son of a wealthy sailing family, has been given that post instead. Chase almost turns it down, but when he gets a promise in writing that he won't be overlooked next time, he agrees to sign on.

Under Pollard's inexperienced direction, the sailors endure hardship and although they harpoon and kill one whale for its oil, they don't want to go back home until they've found more. They sail south where they hear there have been whale sightings. As they're about to harpoon more whales, the vessel is attacked by a whale of mammoth size and will. The real-life maritime disaster went on to inspire Herman Melville's classic novel, Moby-Dick.

The film stars: Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy, Brendan Gleeson

Date: 2 December 2015
Ticket only but free to watch stars on the red carpet. Celebs likely to arrive from 5:15pm but crowds may gather from midday

Testament Of Youth - London Film Premiere

TESTAMENT OF YOUTH is a searing story of love, war and remembrance, based on the First World War memoir by Vera Brittain which became the classic testimony of that war from a woman’s point of view. A powerful and passionate journey from youthful hopes and dreams to the edge of despair and back again, it’s a film about young love, the futility of war and how to make sense of the darkest times.

Vera Brittain, irrepressible, intelligent and free-minded, overcomes the prejudices of her family and hometown to win a scholarship to Oxford. With everything to live for, she falls in love with her brother’s close friend Roland Leighton as they go to University to pursue their literary dreams. But the First World War is looming and as the boys leave for the front Vera realises she cannot sit idly by as her peers fight for their country, so volunteers as a nurse. She works tirelessly, experiencing all the griefs of war, as one by one those closest to her are killed and the pillars of her world shattered. But, an indefatigable spirit, Vera endures and returns to Oxford, irrevocably changed, yet determined to find a new purpose, which spurs her towards a powerful act of remembrance.

The film stars: Hayley Atwell, Kit Harington, Alicia Vikander
