The UK has given us some of the most talented stars in the world for many years now, with a huge amount of British stars working in Hollywood since pretty much forever, and plenty more always coming through on a regular basis. We love getting to see these talented Brits on the big screen, showing us just how impressive their acting talent is.
One of the top British stars in Hollywood today would have to be the beautiful Keira Knightley, who has enjoyed a long and successful career in the business, with plenty of new acting projects coming our way over the course of the next few years. One of the new Keira Knightley films that we are most looking forward to seeing, is the new movie The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is described as, "Clara wants that one-of-a-kind key that unlocks a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer's annual holiday party, leads her to the key-which disappears into a mysterious parallel world. There, Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip, a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger, to retrieve Clara's key and return harmony to the world."
As well as the lovely Keira Knightley being in the film, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms also boasts other Hollywood stars such as Morgan Freeman, Mackenzie Foy, Helen Mirren, and Matthew Macfadyen, among others. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is directed by Lasse Hallstrom and Joe Johnston, from the screenplay that Simon Beaufoy developed from the E.T.A. Hoffmann book, with the movie due to open on October 26 in the UK and November 2 in the US.
