Last night The W Hotel played host to the UK premiere of the Patrick Viktor Monroe-directed short film, Little Favour. Attended by Monroe himself, the premiere was held as a crowd funding reward providing the perfect opportunity for all investors involved in the initiative to catch an exclusive screening of the film alongside the film’s stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Salmon and Paris Winter Monroe.
Little Favour is the first film to come out of new studio SunnyMarch and swiftly set an all new record as the fastest and highest funded film in crowd funding history with a stunning £86,240 raised in a mere twelve days, outstripping the original target of £25,000.
The film follows Wallace (Cumberbatch) struggling to get over his war scars to start a new life as far from the military as possible until an old comrade James (Salmon) calls up to ask for a ‘little’ favour. Although determined to leave his military background well behind him, James saved his life making it impossible to say no. As soon as Wallace offers a helping hand he finds out it may be slightly more than just a Little Favour…
Little Favour will be available in the whopping total of 76 countries (at time of posting) and is now available for pre-order on iTunes in the UK and will be available to download this bonfire night, November 5th, 2013.
In the meantime we’ll leave you with a ‘little’ trailer:
