Trailer For God Save The Films, A Celebration Of Modern British Genre Cinema

British genre filmmaking is in rude health. Joe Cornish‘s Attack the Block is one of the best films, of any origin or style, in living memory, this year brings us Edgar Wright‘s The World’s End and even lower profile fare like Tower Block is delivering proper fun and thrills.

And French director David Perissère knows it.

He’s hopped the Channel to shoot his documentary, God Save the Films. Here’s the first trailer, which shows just a few of the interview subjects he’s called in. There’s the aforementioned Wright and Cornish, then Andy Nyman, Chris Smith, Jake West, Gareth Edwards and more. A good lineup.

Okay, so the trailer is almost all talking heads, but the topic is rich and the time is right. I’ll be watching out for this one. I’d imagine a Frightfest premiere is pretty likely… back home it’s going to screen on the 30th of January, and I think it actually already played last year.

And just for fun, here are the film’s opening titles.
