Exclusive: Elfie Hopkins Poster
Winstones Assemble!

09 March 2012  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

If this new Elfie Hopkins quad poster is anything to go by, all is assuredly not well in the Winstone household. Dad Ray and daughter Jaime have their hands full dealing with the film's sinister woodland goings-on. The last time Winston Sr. looked this focused he was being sucked into the space between spaces in The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.

At least this time he's armed, which is more than it looks like Elfie herself (Jaime Winstone) is boasting. The 22 year-old wildlife-loving amateur sleuth has to get by on wits dampened by a spliff or two as she sets to work uncovering bloody work afoot in her dormant hunting village. Well, wits and probably some shotguns.


Written and directed by Ryan Andrews, a previous collaborator with Jaime Winstone, Elfie Hopkins promises to showcase the younger Winstone's skills. Her character is inspired in her crime-solving mission by noirs like Chinatown and The Maltese Falcon and aided by geeky pal Dylan (Aneurin Barnard).

Together, they get busy investigating the suspicious Gammon family, fresh from the big city and - we'd wager - not especially friendly.

Elfie Hopkins makes her big-screen bow on April 20.

I agree Peter Ustinov via Bob Hoskins from SuperMario. More

RE: Is it me?
Sadly this poster is entirely too generic. It's just a bunch of sepia toned images photoshopped together. Too bad. More

RE: Is it me?
That was my EXACT thought when I saw that image. Looks like Ustinov straight out of "Death on the Nile". More
