Though Hollywood is considered the centerpiece of modern filmmaking, many of our best and brightest actors come from across the pond. To celebrate the current Brits that are making waves on both the big screen and small screen, the folks at Vanity Fair have put together a rather fun short film told in three parts: “Preparing for War”, “Coming to America”, and “Victory Is Assured”.
The short is chock full of over 40 actors recreating some of the most memorable scenes in cinematic history, though not necessarily in ways you’d expect. There’s a chic Keira Knightley doing her best orgasm scene impression from When Harry Met Sally, Jeremy Irons delivering a swell Die Hard line with milkshake in hand, and Tom Hiddleston and Felicity Jones offering up their rendition of Bonnie and Clyde. Plus many, many more including Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne, Jamie Dornan, Judi Dench, Michael Caine, Natalie Dormer, Sienna Miller, etc.
