Ahead of its world premiere next month at the BFI London Film Festival, the first trailer has arrived online for director Jon S. Baird’s upcoming Laurel & Hardy biopic Stan &; Ollie, which stars Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly as the legendary comedy double act Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy alongside Shirley Henderson and Nina Arianda; watch it here…
The true story of Hollywood’s greatest comedy double act, Laurel and Hardy, is brought to the big screen for the first time. Starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly as the inimitable movie icons, Stan & Ollie is the heart-warming story of what would become the pair’s triumphant farewell tour.
With their golden era long behind them, the pair embark on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. Despite the pressures of a hectic schedule, and with the support of their wives Lucille (Shirley Henderson) and Ida (Nina Arianda) – a formidable double act in their own right – the pair’s love of performing, as well as for each other, endures as they secure their place in the hearts of their adoring public.
Stan & Ollie is set to arrive in cinemas January 2019.
