First trailer for Downton Abbey star Matthew Goode’s new movie The Duke

And it looks absolutely wonderful.

Downton Abbey star Matthew Goode is fighting for justice in the wonderful first trailer for new movie The Duke.

Based on an extraordinary true story, The Duke follows 60-year-old taxi driver Kempton Bunton who stole Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from London’s National Gallery in 1961.

It marked the first – and still only – theft in the Gallery’s history, and Kempton proceeded to send ransom notes declaring that he’d only return the painting if the government invested more in care for the elderly.

Kempton was specifically interested in his long-running campaign for pensioners to receive free television – but it took 50 years for the full story to emerge and it was revealed he had spun a web of lies.

The only truth was that he was a good man, determined to change the world and save his marriage to Dorothy Bunton, and The Duke tells the story of how and why he used the painting to do just that.

Directed by Roger Michell (Notting Hill), the movie stars acting legends Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren in the roles of Kempton and Dorothy, with Goode playing Jeremy Hutchinson, the barrister who defended Kempton in 1965.

The Duke received its world premiere at last year’s Venice Film Festival where it received widespread critical acclaim, currently standing at the coveted 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

After we see him in The Duke, Goode will be reprising his role as Henry Talbot in the eagerly-awaited Downton Abbey 2. The sequel is filming right now and will be released in cinemas this Christmas.

He’ll also be seen in another movie based on true events in Sky original movie The Colour Room, alongside Bridgerton‘s Phoebe Dynevor.

The Duke is released in UK cinemas on September 3.

Matthew Goode has always been very clear that he does not want to participate in social media but for a very short time last weekend he opened a Twitter account [verified by Steven Cree].

Matthew Goode’s Brief Encounter with Twitter. This is hilarious. Matthew had a few drinks and joined Twitter - for a very brief time.  Obviously we can’t rule out a ‘fake’ but whoever it was they know Matthew really well so it could be a family...

 

Thank you to @adow-trash on Tumblr for passing on all of his messages –

Matthew changed his @ to goodey101 shortly after his initial tweet to Steven Cree.

Sadly Matthew deleted his account after gaining over a thousand followers in record time!   It was fun while it lasted.

Thanks to @adow-trash for the screen grabs.

Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor brings period piece to Birmingham city centre

A busy Birmingham street was transformed into a scene from the 1920s as a new biopic was filmed there.

Old vehicles from the 1920s era including an open top bus were set outside on Corporation Street, which had been turned into a showroom for The Colour Room.

It also saw stars of popular programmes such as Bridgerton, the Crown, Call The Midwife and Meal for Two take in the sights and sounds of Birmingham city centre during filming.

The film tells the story of Clarice Cliff, played by Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor, who became a rising star in the pottery industry in Stoke-on-Trent.

Dynevor, who shot to fame over Christmas for her role as Daphne in Regency romp, was seen filming scenes in Apache’s Bar and Restaurant with the unique brick buildings of Corporation Street forming a colourful backdrop.

She was joined in filming by Matthew Goode, who has taken on the role of Colley Shorter, the factory owner who became impressed by Clarice’s work and helped stoke her talent.

Matthew Goode starred as Antony Armstrong-Jones in the Crown, and was joined by Call The Midwife’s Bronwyn James, Laura White, who appeared on The X Factor, Birdcage’s Safia Oakley Green and Meal For Two star Anna-Kate Golding.

The film shows how Cliff broke the glass ceiling to revolutionise the workplace during the 20th Century and is directed by Claire McCarthy.

Dynevor said: ‘I am so excited to be joining the cast of The Colour Room, especially in the role as one of the nation’s most celebrated artists, Clarice Cliff.

“It’s truly such an honour to take on such a remarkable character.

“The script is a beautifully written contemporary take on the 20th century, and I feel proud to be working with such a strong female team, both in front and behind the camera.”

“I look forward to telling Clarice’s story and of course working with Matthew too.”
