unnamed (2)
It’s that time of year again! Time for our annual birthday video message to our fave guy :) If you are a new fan of Sam or a new follower of ourselves, you may not have seen last year’s video message to him. Sam really appreciates his birthday video wishes and has shown his appreciation for them for the past five years :)
Due to time restrictions, we have chosen not to do a birthday book to Sam this year. And for those of you wondering about last year’s book – sadly it still hasn’t reached him from his agents yet :( As soon as we have any info about it we will be sure to let you know! So for now, it’s all about the video!
Want to take part this year? Here are a few tips to follow when sending in your messages:
  • E-mail your video and name/twitter username to scfbirthdayproject@gmail.com
  • Try to keep your message to a maximum of 40 seconds
  • You must verbally say where you are from (your country)
  • Keep it appropriate.
  • If you do not speak English, you can just add subtitles or send them!
Deadline to get your messages into us by is Sunday June 18th. Good luck, have fun & we look forward to seeing your lovely wishes for Sam!
P.S – We are still thinking of an intro for the video & may need some help from you guys once we settle on an idea! If you are up for helping out & maybe sending in an extra video at a later date, please let us know in your email! We will then contact you once plans for the intro are finalised :)


New role for Sam: Semper Fi

sam-claflin (1)

 

Brilliant news! Sam has been cast in another great film called Semper Fi a crime-thriller by director Henry-Alex Rubin.

Variety had the following to say about Sam’s upcoming role:

“Claflin will play a straight-laced cop who fills his downtime as a sergeant in the Marine Corps Reserve alongside a close-knit team of lifelong friends. When his younger, reckless brother accidentally kills a man in a bar-room brawl and tries to flee town, Claflin’s character  stops him and forces him to face the music.

After being deployed to Iraq, he returns home to discover that his brother’s final court appeal has been rejected and resolves to save his brother by breaking him out of prison, no matter what the cost”

Production for  Semper Fi will start in Vancouver, Canada on July 5th. Doesn’t it sound fantastic? Yet another completely different role for Sam – we can’t wait!

Exclusive BTS look at Journey’s End

With huge thanks to our friends at Into Film, you can now check out this exclusive BTS look at Sam & co-star Asa Butterfield on the set of their latest film Journey’s End, which finished filming last December. The film, which is an adaptation of the RC Sherriff play of the same name, sees Sam take on the role of Captain Stanhope, a young commanding officer, forever changed by his experiences on the front line in WW1. With such a heavy subject matter, it’s brilliant to see that Sam was still able to goof around on set & just be his typical funny self…watch out for him singing a little bit too…X Factor next perhaps? Check out the incredible video below :) And be sure to take a look at the wonderful work that Into Film do, helping to support children’s educational & personal development through the art of film :) We’ve linked to their site & social media at the bottom of the article!

Lionsgate have today released the first official trailer for Their Finest –  and it is stunning. The WW2 comedy drama sees Sam portraying Tom Buckley, a writer hired to make morale boosting propaganda films during the blitz on London.

Synopsis:

1940, London, the Blitz; with the country’s morale at stake, Catrin (Gemma Arterton), an untried screenwriter, and a makeshift cast and crew, work under fire to make a film to lift the nation’s flagging spirits; and inspire America to join the war. Partnered alongside fellow screenwriter, Buckley (Sam Claflin) and eccentric actor Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy), the trio set off to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation and capture the imagination of the American population.

THEIR FINEST, based on Lissa Evans’ novel, ‘Their Finest Hour and a Half’, is a witty, romantic and moving portrayal of a young woman finding her way, and her voice, in the mayhem of war… and the movies!

Boasting an incredible British cast including Gemma Arterton, Bill Nighy, Richard E Grant, Jack Huston & Eddie Marsan, this heartwarming film hits UK cinemas on April 21st! Check out the gorgeous trailer below. Sam Claflin Fans were lucky enough to see a preview screening of the film at last year’s London Film Festival & we can assure you that it is an incredible film & Sam is utterly fantastic as always.

Journey’s End Filming (Master Post)

15056770_1039921249452159_5711063102057873408_n

On November 7th, filming commenced on Sam’s newest project Journey’s End. Based on the 1928 play by R C Sherriff, it tells the story of life in the trenches during WW1. Sam will portray Captain Dennis Stanhope, a young commanding officer who has changed dramatically due to his time on the front line in France. The cast also includes Asa Butterfield, Paul Bettany, Tom Sturridge, Toby Jones & Robert Glenister. Below, we have written a synopsis & a description of some of the main characters so you can familiarise yourself with them!*

Synopsis: Set during the First World War, Journey’s End concerns the lives of a group of British officers on the front line and opens in a dugout in the trenches in France. Raleigh, a new eighteen-year-old officer, fresh out of English public school, joins the besieged company of his friend and cricketing hero Stanhope, and finds him dramatically changed…

Stanhope (Sam Claflin) – Commanding Officer of an infantry company. Tall, with dark hair, carefully brushed, his uniform, though old & war stained is well cut & cared for. He is good looking, rather from attractive features, than the healthy good looks of Raleigh. Although tanned from months in the open air, there is a pallor under his skin and dark shadows under his eyes. Read more »
