Interlude in Prague Gets First Trailer, UK Release Date
Interlude in Prague, an 18th-century Mozart drama that was filmed in Prague and across the Czech Republic in early 2016, has secured a release date in the United Kingdom next month.
On May 12, the movie will have its worldwide premiere at the Odeon Cinema in London’s Leicester Square. If you're in the UK at that time, tickets are publicly available.
Two weeks later, the film is set for release on May 25 throughout UK cinemas and on-demand services.
The movie, written by Brian Ashby and directed by former special effects technician John Stephenson, is a biography-cum-period thriller that charts Mozart’s time and affairs in Prague and culminates with a grisly murder.
Scenes set at the Prague’s Estates Theater, a long-standing landmark where Mozart himself conducted the premiere of Don Giovanni in 1787, were shot on location.
Rising star Aneurin Barnard, also featured in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming WWII drama Dunkirk, which sees release later this year, features here as the famed composer.
The supporting cast includes James Purefoy (Solomon Kane), Morfydd Clark (Love and Friendship), and Samantha Barks (Les Misérables).
Production company Stillking Films handled the local shoot, which took place both in Prague and at locations across the Czech Republic.
The filmmakers made use of some of the country’s beautiful and timeless estates, with filming conducted at Chateau Ploskovice, Libochovice Chateau, and Chateau Jemniště.
Yesterday, the first trailer for the film was released by its UK distributor:
