Luminaries from the musical world including Coldplay and Happy Mondays singer Rowetta were in attendance yesterday for the premiere of Spike Island – a new film which follows the fortunes of an unsigned Manchester band set to the back drop of the Stone Roses‘ legendary, era defining Spike Island gig in 1990.
The Chris Coghill-written and directed movie stars Elliott Tittensor – best known for his role in Shameless - and Games Of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke, and will be officially released in April 2013. The film has been garnering significant praise during the past few months.
Coldplay, who helped to fund the project, were at the BFI London Film Festival for the premiere last night (October 12th), with frontman Chris Martin telling NME that:
“We had great faith that he’d pull it off.” “12 million pounds,” he continued when asked how much Coldplay had invested. “I didn’t see evidence of that anywhere. They said it was going to have robots. We’ve been shafted again.”Just Published:
