DVDs of David Tennant's United and LA Without A Map are released today
As we posted back in June, today DVDs of David Tennant's two dramas United and LA Without A Map are released today.
David filmed this during December 2010 and it was shown on BBC2 on Easter Sunday to massive acclaim by both critics and fans.
The description is "United is based on the true story of Manchester United's legendary "Busby Babes", the youngest side ever to win the Football League and the 1958 Munich Air Crash that claimed eight of the their number. The film draws on first-hand interviews with the survivors and their families to tell the inspirational story of a team and community overcoming terrible tragedy."
It is available for pre-order from Amazon.com at this link. The United section of DavidTennantOnTwitter.com has more info about this production.
As well as the 90 minute deama, the DVD includes some deleted scenes and a commentary by David Tennant, James Strong and writer Chris Chibnall.
LA Without A Map
David filmed this movie back in 1998 and until now the only way to watch it was to buy a foreign language version and turn off the subtitles but now a UK version will be available.
The description is "Richard (David Tennant) has his life turned upside down when he meets Barbara (Vinessa Shaw), a beautiful aspiring actress on her way to Los Angeles. Leaving his inherited undertaker's business and dull life behind, he crosses the Atlantic in pursuit of love and adventure. Accidentally he finds himself a career as a screenwriter. Thrown in at the deep end he discovers that life in Southern California is far from straightforward. Stylish, funny, and fast -paced, with a screenplay adapted from Richard Rayner's autobiographical cult hit novel Los Angeles Without a Map, this is a hilarious fish-out-of-water love story with some surprising guest stars."
It is available for pre-order from Amazon at this link.
