New Look: ‘Burke & Hare’ clips

Burke & Hare

Burke and Hare - Australian One sheetWith Burke & Hare now in cinemas across Australia, Paramount has sent us through a pair of clips from the black comedy.

Starring Simon Pegg, Andy Serkis, Isla Fisher and a veritable who’s who of British comedy and cinema, it is directed by the legendary John Landis, known for such classics as The Blues Brothers, An American Werewolf in London and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” music video. The final product here is an odd combination of all of those things!

The 19th century black comedy, Burke and Hare featuring our own Isla Fisher, is coming to cinemas 12 May. With the basis of a true story behind it and a well known director like John Landis, the film is ‘something alternative’ this year and an antidote to the sequels and 3D movies coming out.
