It looks like it’s going to be one of those years for James Corden.
First, he lands the vacant late night spot with Craig Ferguson stepping down from The Late Late Show on CBS. Next up, his highly-anticipated film One Chance is set for U.S. release.
Weinstein Company is offering a pre-theatrical release via Yahoo Screen on Tuesday, September 30. You can check out Yahoo Screen here.
But, not to worry if you prefer going to the cinema for the movie experience, popcorn and all, because the film will have a limited release on October 10, hitting select theaters.
One Chance follows Paul Potts, played by Corden, who grew up with the love of singing classical music. The other kids in his Welsh neighborhood didn’t share his passion as much. Even so, Potts didn’t let self-doubt get the better of him and continued his pursuit to perform opera. To the public, it may have seemed like Potts was an overnight sensation when being “discovered” by Simon Cowell on Britain’s Got Talent. But, to Potts, it took a lifetime.
The below trailer gives you a glimpse into Potts’ youth, and what it took to make his dream come true:
Anglophenia’s Tom Brook caught up with Corden at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2013, which you can watch here. Corden describes the film in the interview, saying, “It’s essentially a sports movie, it just so happens that the sport is opera.”
Have you ever been in a situation where you felt let like there was only one chance?
