Steve attended the American Film Market (AFM) a few weeks back, and he was able to bring back a few promo images, posters, and synopses for some upcoming films. Today we’ve got the first image and synopsis for the comedy The Look of Love and the first synopsis for the psychological horror film In Fear. Directed by Michael Winterbottom (The Trip), Steve Coogan stars in The Look of Love as a legendary gentleman’s club owner and erotic publisher in London. The cast also includes Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies), Tamsin Egerton (Huge), and Imogen Poots (Jane Eyre).
Additionally, we’ve got the first synopsis for the horror film In Fear. Directed by Jeremy Lovering, the film stars Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures) and is described as a home invasion film in a car. The story plays out in real time as we follow a couple trapped in a maze of country roads with only their vehicle for protection. Hit the jump for the image and synopses.
Here’s the synopsis for The Look of Love:
After 24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE and THE TRIP, Michael Winterbottom and comedic genius Steve Coogan team up once more to chronicle the scandalous world of Paul Raymond, legendary “gentleman’s” club owner and erotic publisher in London.
With an eye for business opportunities and a taste for beautiful women, Paul Raymond (Coogan), realized early on that sex sells. It all started out with one gentlemen’s nightclub so hot that no real man could resist. Soon he took over the block, and shortly after, all of Soho. But that wasn’t enough for Raymond, who, fearless to opposition, went on to publish erotic magazines and produce nude theater, earning the title of Britain’s richest man!
Raymond’s personal life was not too different from his shows. His marriage to Jean (Friel), a nude dancer, choreographer, business partner, and mother of his children, fell apart when he met Fiona (Egerton), a glamour model who became a pin-up star of his shows and magazines. The love of his life, however, was his daughter Debbie (Poots), who became his business partner and heir to his empire, until her tragic and untimely death at age 36.
The film will tantalize audiences around the world by experiencing swinging London through the eyes of a man who could even have made Hugh Hefner blush!
Here’s the synopsis for In Fear:
IN FEAR is a tense psychological horror about a young couple’s fight to make it through the night.
Home invasion but in a car. In real-time. Tom and Lucy are trapped in a maze of country roads with only their vehicle for protection, terrorized by an unseen tormentor hell-bent on exploiting their worst fears – fear of the dark, fear of the unknown, fear of themselves. Then the shocking realization they’ve let the evil in. And it’s sitting in the back of their car.
