David Walliams to host Goldfinger outdoor screening event next month

11-Jul-2010 • Event

David Walliams is to lead James Bond fans at a celebration of cinema's iconic spy as part of Film4 Summer Screen 2010, reports the UKPA.

The Little Britain star will be joined by Bond director Guy Hamilton and 007 composer David Arnold at London's Somerset House on Monday August 2 for All That Glitters Is Goldfinger, leading a cast of Bond collaborators and fans celebrating and recalling the stories behind some of the best moments in the film.

The Behind The Screen talk comes before a screening of Goldfinger, starring Sean Connery as Bond, shown in the open air in the impressive surroundings of Somerset House.

The Film4 Summer Screen opens on Thursday July 29 with the People's Premiere of the blockbuster action-comedy adventure, Knight And Day, starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz.

Other cult films to be shown this year include Tarantino's Kill Bill Volume 1, Bruce Lee's Enter The Dragon, Team America: World Police, Woody Allen's Manhattan and Cabaret.

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's Black Narcissus, Stanley Kubrick's Paths Of Glory and David Lynch's Mulholland Drive are also on the bill.

Film buffs will be in for a treat on August 4 when Christiane Kubrick, Stanley Kubrick's widow, and producer Jan Harlan join friends of the director to explore some of his most mesmerising and unforgettable images in Kubrick's Camera, as part of the Behind The Screen line-up.

Bite-night on August 7 features a double bill of vampire tales - the award-winning Let The Right One In and The Lost Boys.

Tickets for the films and talks can be booked at www.somersethouse.org.uk or at Ticketmaster 0844 847 1715.
