The Last Duel

Death before dishonour

From 20th Century Studios and visionary film-maker Ridley Scott comes The Last Duel, a gripping tale of betrayal and vengeance set against the brutality of 14th century France.

The historical epic is a cinematic and thought-provoking drama that explores the ubiquitous power of men, the frailty of justice and the strength and courage of one woman willing to stand alone in the service of truth.

Based on actual events, the film unravels long-held assumptions about France’s last sanctioned duel between Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris, two friends turned bitter rivals. When Carrouges’ wife, Marguerite, is viciously assaulted by Le Gris, a charge he denies. She refuses to stay silent, stepping forward to accuse her attacker, an act of bravery and defiance that puts her life in jeopardy. The ensuing trial by combat, a gruelling duel to the death, places the fate of all three in God’s hands.

The Last Duel stars Oscar winner Matt Damon; two-time Academy Award nominee Adam Driver; Emmy winner Jodie Comer and two-time Oscar winner Ben Affleck, and is directed by four-time Academy Award nominee Ridley Scott from a screenplay by Oscar nominee, Nicole Holofcener and Ben Affleck and Matt Damon based on the book by Eric Jager. The film is produced by Ridley Scott, Kevin J. Walsh, Jennifer Fox, Nicole Holofcener, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, with Kevin Halloran, Drew Vinton and Madison Ainley serving as executive producers.

Ron’s Gone Wrong

A new error in friendship

20th Century Studios and Locksmith Animation’s Ron’s Gone Wrong is the story of Barney, a socially awkward middle schooler, and Ron, his new walking, talking, digitally connected device, which is supposed to be his ‘Best Friend out of the Box’.

Ron’s hilarious malfunctions, set against the backdrop of the social media age, launch them into an action-packed journey in which boy and robot come to terms with the wonderful messiness of true friendship.

Ron’s Gone Wrong features the voices of Zach Galifianakis ( A Wrinkle in Time), Jack Dylan Grazer ( Shazam!), Olivia Colman ( The Crown), Ed Helms ( The Office), Justice Smith ( Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), Rob Delaney ( Deadpool 2), Kylie Cantrall ( Gabby Duran and the Unsittables), Ricardo Hurtado ( The Goldbergs), Marcus Scribner ( Black-ish) and Thomas Barbusca ( Chad).

The movie is directed by Sarah Smith and Jean-Philippe Vine. It is written by Peter Baynham and Sarah Smith, and produced by Julie Lockhart and Lara Breay.

The cast includes Zach Galifianakis, Jack Dylan Grazer, Olivia Colman, Ed Helms, Justice Smith, Rob Delaney, Kylie Cantrall, Ricardo Hurtado, Marcus Scribner and Thomas Barbusca.
