WATCH: New Trailer For Paddy Considine’s ‘Tyrannosaur’

Tyrannosaur is a new film, written and directed by the astonishing British actor  Paddy Considine. Having written and directed the BAFTA-winning short film Dog Altogether, Paddy has turned in his first full length opus, very loosely based on his own father.

The film stars Peter Mullan (Trainspotting, Boy A, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) as Joseph, a violent drunk widower who strikes up an unlikely friendship with Hannah, a Christian working in a charity shop (Doctor Who/Peep Show/Hot Fuzz’s Olivia Colman).

Things take a darker turn when Olivia’s husband, played by the ever-chilling Eddie Marsan, turns out to be a wrong ‘un. Take a look:

Back in January, Anglophenia’s Tom Brook interviewed Olivia and Peter about their work on the film, off the back of a rapturous reception at the Sundance Festival.
