Movie premiere coup for #CavillConservation


The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Proceeds from the pre-screening will go to #CavillConservation

Forthcoming blockbuster The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is to be exclusively premiered in a very special pre-screening event in Henry Cavill’s home island of Jersey. The showing, starring Durrell’s famous Ambassador, will be the first in Europe – with all proceeds going to #CavillConservation!

Henry explained how Durrell and some exceptionally willing sponsors made it all happen. “I was not expecting to have the chance to show you my movie this year but Durrell in all their wisdom approached us and broached the idea, my team and I in turn approached Warner Brothers”, he said.

Although costs and priorities were an issue, Henry revealed how, working with Durrell, he was able to make it happen. “Durrell again stepped to the fore and secured some incredible sponsors in Jersey through Cineworld Jersey, The Liberation Group, 365Tickets Jersey and Charge Point. So, through the sponsors generosity and Durrell’s passion we finally have the chance to Pre-screen the movie”.

Importantly, as Henry points out, the event will ultimately benefit threatened animals at risk of extinction. “The best thing of course is that all proceeds will go to #CavillConservation which is in aid of Durrell and all its ventures”, he said. If you want to show your support, please add your own donation.

The eagerly anticipated film, which Henry describes as “one of my favourite movies to date”, will be shown in Jersey on Thursday 13th August (click for tickets). If you can’t make it, you can watch the movie when it is released in cinemas worldwide… following the #CavillConservation premiere!

    Another great idea – fantastic, well done. It’s high time #CavillConservation got onto social media! Instagram and Twitter accounts please! Many more opportunities for supporters to help Henry raise the profile of Durrell and awareness of all they do :-)

    I’ll be there! Oh, wait…I live in Canada. I’ll shall patiently wait until it hits theatres here, but excellent idea to do a pre-screen as a Durell fundraiser. Keep up the great work raising funds for Durrell!

    I was thrilled to hear about this today! What a great gift for your island home and what a great opportunity for Durrell Wildlife to fundraise! The event sounds absolutely terrific and I hope all those who attend have a wonderful time! It’s a win-win for all involved. See you Monday at the NYC premiere, Henry! Break a leg (as they say in show biz) and congrats!

    Although I am not a big fan of action movies, I will certainly attend this movie when it shows here in the States. I admire your dedication and involvement with wildlife when you have an active acting career. Thank you for all the species that you help.

    This is such fantastic news I am so happy for all of you. I’m sure it’s going to be an amazing night for everyone involved and the best thing about it, is that all the money from the ticket sales will be used to help these wonderful animals. Wish I could be there to celebrate with all of you but know that I will be there in spirit supporting you and cheering you on. Well done Durrell for this fantastic idea! You have outdone yourselves and you should be extremely proud take care and have a fantastic night! Xxx

    Awwwww!!! This is a very brilliant idea!!! I’m proud of the donors & Warner Bros team effort with Durell for the Man From UNCLE premiere in Henry’s hometown.

    God knows Henry reserves this love & support. He’s a hard working man with integrity and respect for his craft. He never ceases to amaze me with each passing day.

    All I can say is Bravo for getting this project off the ground. You guys rock!!

    Have a fantastical blast. It’s worth the wait!

    Bonjour Henry et toute l’Equipe Durrell….Figurez-vous, il y a des animaux qui ont la “joie” d’avoir une cage à eux tout seul !!! Présentement, j’ai eu la grande joie d’avoir la salle de cinéma à moi toute seule pour regarder UNCLE. Un plaisant moment ; un saut dans le Temps, de l’Action, du vocabulaire et de l’Humour fin, bref , comme j’aime. Prenez tous soin de vous.
