The Ticket and Colossal now in US theatres
Dan has two films released in the US this weekend: 'The Ticket' and 'Colossal'. Check out official sites for both films to find out where they are being screened. The Ticket is also available to US audiences as a digital download.
A new interview with Dan has been shared to promote The Ticket by Coming Soon. Read it in full on that site.
2017 might very well belong to Dan Stevens. The English star first caught fans’ eyes as Downton Abbey‘s Matthew Crawley and soon won over genre fans as the lead of Adam Wingard‘s stylish thriller The Guest. In 2017, he has already played one of the title roles in the current biggest movie of the year. Walt Disney Pictures‘ Beauty and the Beast has passed $900 million at the global box office. This Friday sees the release of two more Dan Stevens films with Nacho Vigalondo‘s Colossal and Ido Fluk‘s The Ticket.
Then, April 14 will bring us another Dan Stevens film with Joseph Cedar’s Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer. And that’s not even mentioning Mr. Steven’s hit FX series, Legion. From Fargo‘s Noah Hawley, the Marvel series just finished its first season.
“That’s a lot of movies,” Stevens laughed during a recent chat with CS about The Ticket. “…These things happen occasionally. I worked with Jessica Chastain about five years ago on a play. She had one of those years where something like seven different projects all came out… It’s been interesting. It’s quite a range of stuff.”
Shout! Factory is distributing The Ticket in a limited run starting this Friday. Co-starring Malin Akerman, The Ticket sees Dan Stevens as a former blind man who, after regaining his vision, becomes driven by a newly-acquired sense of superficiality. In some ways, that’s the reverse of Beauty and the Beast‘s exploration of inner beauty.
“There is a sort of dark fairy tale to it,” Stevens continues. “Something magical happens. There is a magical transformation… [But] that’s the story of most great movies. It’s a part of the artistic expression. It’s the heroes’ journey. Something happens to the hero and it changes how he sees the world and makes him appreciate the marvels.”
Indie Wire has a new clip from the film to share.
In addition to releases for The Ticket, Colossal and Norman in the US, it seems Permission will premiere at Tribeca next week!
