Brighton rock

  1. 1. Brighton Rock 2010
  2. 2. General information• Brighton Rock is a 2010 crime thriller starring Sam Riley and Helen Mirren.• It follows a small time gangster who marries a waitress because she witnesses him murdering another thug.• It’s budget was approximately $12,000,000.• It was shown at the Toronto International film festival and the BFI London film festival in 2010.
  3. 3. Success• I think that Brighton Rock was mainly successful due to the fact that it was adapted from the popular novel by Graham Greene.• It therefore already had an existing fan base, so it didn’t have to start from nothing.• It was also set in a well known town, which made it more relatable for the audience.• It includes a lot of social realism which is also familiar to the majority of the audience.
  4. 4. Information• The film also has a previously released film noir version, that was distributed in 1947.• The new version, written and directed by Rowan Joffe, was set in the 1960’s as opposed to the 1930’s like it was in the book.• This helped entice the audience further, as people who have seen the first film would be interested in seeing the remake, and therefore make a judgment as to which film they preferred.
