Entertainment One Unveil the First Teaser Trailer and Selection of Photos for Mike Leigh’s PETERLOO based on the Shocking True Events
Ahead of its November release, The Fan Carpet are pleased to present the first Teaser Trailer for PETERLOO, the shocking true story of the 1819 Peterloo Massacre, launched by Entertainment One!
An epic portrayal of the events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre, where a peaceful pro-democracy rally at St Peter’s Field in Manchester turned into one of the bloodiest and most notorious episodes in British history. The massacre saw British government forces charge into a crowd of over 60,000 that had gathered to demand political reform and protest against rising levels of poverty.
Many protestors were killed and hundreds more injured, sparking a nationwide outcry but also further government suppression. The Peterloo Massacre was a defining moment in British democracy which also played a significant role in the founding of The Guardian newspaper.
Written and Directed by Mike Leigh and starring Maxine Peake, Rory Kinnear, Sam Troughton and Tim McInnerny, PETERLOO hits Cinemas on November 2.
