British Stars Recreate Famous Movie Scenes in Vanity Fair Short Film

British Stars Recreate Famous Movie Scenes

In celebration of how many British actors have been nominated for this year’s Oscars, celebrity photographer Jason Bell filmed them for Vanity Fair in three fake newsreels depicting an all-star British invasion of Hollywood.

This short film told in three parts, re-enacts famous movies from the good ol’ US of A and features more than 40 A-list Brits including Eddie Redmayne, Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Tom Hiddleston, Michael Caine, Orlando Bloom, Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench, and Dominic West, among others.

Among the best moments from the three-part series are Knightley‘s take on Meg Ryan‘s fake climax from When Harry Met Sally (with Dench uttering the classic line, “I’m having what she’s having”), while Felicity Jones teams up with Hiddleston for a Bonnie and Clyde scene, and Dominic West tackles Marlon Brando‘s ‘I could’ve been a contender’ speech from On the Waterfront in a bar.

There were also great moments with actors like Branagh reviving Richard III’s ‘My kingdom for a horse’ monologue while chatting on the phone, Richard Madden (Game of Thrones) saying, “Frankly, darling, I don’t give a damn,” and Jeremy Irons saying Bruce Willis’ famous “Die Hard” quip, “Yippee ki-yay, motherf—-r.”

Keira has the most exquisite face, but she sounded like a dolphin with hemorrhoids. Lol.
