It’s time for another Cillian Murphy News ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s a bit late for my Monthly Murphy but I have other fandom to attend last week and decided to delay all posting for at least a week.

Did you know that my Monthly Murphy is the most consistent monthly post in my blog? Even Indonesia Banget (posts about my country) has its month off for few times…Monthly Murphy hasn’t had one month off yet ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, Here are the news ๐Ÿ™‚

Peaky Blinders

Peaky Blinders, episode 1 and 2 were premiered on June 25 in Edinburgh International Film Festival. Quite unusual for a TV series to be featured there. Hereโ€™s a quote from an interview with Otto Bathurst from Film3sixtymagazine.com

It is not often that we hear of TV shows being showcased at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, or any film festival for that matter. Yet with Otto Bathurstโ€™s Peaky Blinders, a new BBC drama that will screen this autumn on BBC2, that is exactly what is happening. Set in the lawless streets of post-war Birmingham on the cusp of the 1920s, Peaky Blinders shows a Britain that is a tumultuous mix of despair and hedonism, a nation cleaned out by the extravagances of the Great War.

We caught up with Otto to discuss the TV series, what it means to be a director in the ever merging world of film and tv, and what the attracts him to a script.

Unusually Peaky Blinders is previewing at the EIFF tonight. How do you feel about the show screening at ย a film festival?

Well, from the outset I was deeply committed to making this series as cinematic and epic as possible. And, truth be told, I think we nailed it! We have had a couple of small industry screenings on the big screen, and the response has been universal. It feels like cinema. It is cinema.

Responds from people who have seen the premiere:

“Peaky Blinders premiere last night, this will be a massive hit, it was excellent! Cillian Murphy superb!” Said Magiplug

“Attended the premiere of the insanely cool #PeakyBlinders at the @edfilmfest this eve. Hooked on absolutely everything about it.” Said Joy Parkinson.

Cry/Fly

It is already on post-production stage…waiting for it to be released ๐Ÿ™‚

Oona Chaplin said that: “Yup, I can now say the lovely Cillian Murphy has been my husband… What??” from her twit we got a glimpse of one of Cry/Fly scenes

Transcendence

Not much on Transcendence even though it is currently filming…still have no clue about his character.

The Heart Of The Sea

NEW MOVIE!!! Yeaaaaa \(^_^)/

According to Independent.ie, Cillian will play alongside Chris Hemsworth in an adaptation of Nathaniel Philbrick book (I need to read this book before the movie is being released).

Cillian will play as Mathew Joy, second mate on the whale ship Essex. Joy and first mate Owen Chase (Chris) convince first time Captain Pollard (Benjamin Walker) to sail to South America after an enraged sperm whale rams and sinks the Essex, leaving 21 crew members adrift in small boats.

The film will start shooting around London in mid-September.

Can’t wait to see all of those upcoming projects by one of the most talented (and most underrated) actors alive ๐Ÿ™‚
