Audible Studios, a production arm of Audible.co.uk, today announced the release of acclaimed actress Lily Collins’s audio interpretation of J.M. Barrie’s beloved novel Peter Pan. This exuberant new recording is now available for download at http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01ATU5PAA/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1634&creative=19450&creativeASIN=B01ATU5PAA&linkCode=as2&tag=wwwfilmreview-21.
"What an absolute honor and privilege it is, as an actress, to have the opportunity to put my own spin on a character as well-known as Peter Pan,” said Collins, whose film credits include The Blind Side, Mirror Mirror, and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. “Performing this magical story with my voice alone, without the assistance of props, costumes, or a supporting cast, made me appreciate J.M. Barrie’s genius anew. I hope listeners will experience Neverland in an entirely new and special way through this recording just as I did.”
“With summer approaching, and parents looking for meaningful activities that will entertain the entire family, this enchanting performance of Peter Pan is going to be a household and road trip staple,” said Audible EVP and Publisher Beth Anderson. “Children will be captivated, and parents will relish the opportunity to go back to Neverland once again.”
With a 30-day membership trial at Audible, new listeners can enjoy any one audiobook, including Newton’s performance of Peter Pan, FREE: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00OPA2XFG/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1634&creative=19450&creativeASIN=B00OPA2XFG&linkCode=as2&tag=wwwfilmreview-21
In addition to Collins, among the acclaimed performers who have narrated works of literature for Audible are Thandie Newton, Emma Thompson, Rosamund Pike, Dan Stevens, James Franco, Jesse Eisenberg, Jake Gyllenhaal, Kate Winslet and Tim Robbins. In 2013, Audible Studios won its first Grammy Award, for its production of Janis Ian’s memoir Society’s Child, and also won the Audie Award for Audiobook of the Year, for Colin Firth’s performance of Graham Greene’s The End of the Affair.
Audible, the world’s largest seller and producer of downloadable audiobooks and other spoken-word content, invented and commercialized the first digital audio player in 1997, and has since been at the forefront of the explosively growing audiobook download segment. In 2015, listeners around the world downloaded 1.6 billion hours of audio from Audible.com outlets; Audible members downloaded an average of more than 17 books over the course of the year. Two thirds of new Audible members are first-time audiobook buyers.
AARDMAN and STUDIOCANAL today announced that Eddie Redmayne has joined Nick Park’s new prehistoric comedy adventure EARLY MAN as the voice of Dug. Pictured in the studio this week Eddie Redmayne is the first cast member to be revealed as production begins.
Nick Park comments: “Not only is Eddie a joy to work with, his versatility and boundless energy have really helped to bring my new character to life. He embodies the cheeky charm, fun and plucky wit of Dug and I’m sure he’ll get along brilliantly with Dug’s sidekick Hognob.”
Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, EARLY MAN tells the story of how plucky caveman Dug, along with sidekick Hognob (also pictured) unites his tribe against the mighty Bronze Age in a battle to beat them at their own game. It also marks Nick Park’s first feature film since Academy Award winning WALLACE AND GROMIT: THE CURSE OF THE WERE-RABBIT. Supported by accomplished screenwriter Mark Burton this new film unleashes an unforgettable cast of hilarious new characters.
EARLY MAN continues the production partnership with AARDMAN and STUDIOCANAL following the success of SHAUN THE SHEEP MOVIE directed by Mark Burton and Richard Starzak. STUDIOCANAL is co-financing and will distribute in its own territories, the UK, France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand, selling worldwide. The BFI (British Film Institute) is also a partner on EARLY MAN.
The film will be released in the UK on 26th January 2018.

A pioneering British movie, currently being filmed in South London, will become the world’s first to be powered by an online ‘crypto-currency’.
The producers of Powder’s Peckham are offering a 25% profit share in the movie using 25 billion ‘Kevcoin’, named after the sci-fi adventure’s lead character and inspiration Kevin Powder.
Everyone who appears in the film, as well as those buying a ticket to see it on the big screen, will be rewarded with Kevcoin. The online currency can also be purchased by those looking to invest in the movie.
The currency is built on the Blockchain used by popular online currency Bitcoin, with 1BTC representing 500m of Kevcoin.
The on-screen action follows ex-roadie Kev’s exploits – documentary-style –as he attempts to make a sci-fi epic called The Day Peckham Stood Still. It will feature real people he meets on the streets during filming.
The whole project is the brainchild of comedian and director Jason Attar, who also plays Kevin. He came up with the idea as a way to give fans, investors, cinemagoers and those appearing in his “epic” a stake in what he hopes will be its eventual success.
As well as the new-style funding model, Jason, producer by Danny Wimborne and their team are shooting and editing the whole movie in just 35 days – with Powder’s Peckham set for a glitzy premiere at London’s PeckhamPlex on April 20. The film will then get a full release at the end of May.
Powder’s Peckham is the follow-up to 2013 comedy One Night In Powder, which won two awards, Best Micro Feature and Best Comedy, at the London Independent Film Festival.
Jason says: “This has never been done before. Independent films have such a difficult time reaching an audience, so we thought this could be a good way of building up that audience from the beginning, having advocates talk about it and ultimately share in its potential success.
“For instance when people buy tickets to come and see the movie, they will receive one million Kevcoin – worth around 60p but increasing/decreasing depending on the success of the movie – giving them a small but active stake in its commercial prospects.
“The coin will exist forever and once the film recoups its initial costs of £25,000, 25% of the profits will be shared among those holding Kevcoin. The payment will be made to the person’s public wallet address in Bitcoin.”
Jason has been performing improvised comedy for 20 years, winning awards for short form comedy and feature length films. He has starred on Channel 4, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon, where he dislocated his shoulder on a live children’s show.
He added: “Kevin Powder is similar to Sacha Baron Cohen’s creations, but the difference is he focuses a lot more on the real people we meet and they spend far longer on screen. It’s exhausting trying to film and edit the whole thing in just over a month with just two crew, but I am determined to show it can be done.
“The character came from some advice that comedy commissioners had about me being quite fearless in front of the camera. So I wanted to create this physical buffoon. I wanted to get under the skin of someone that had utter belief in their own self but actually does things a bit upside down.
“Peckham is a great place to film, as it has the perfect mix of traditional Londoners, a large ethnic community and new trendy types.
“Finding people off the street and improvising with them is notoriously difficult. But the majority of the time people are fine and enjoy the experience. Two brothers we met – Steve and Tony – were so good they play lead roles.”
