Minority Report – Monday on BBC1

still_001The BBC has decided, after more than 5 years, to put Minority Report on TV again.

As a way to end the extended holiday weekend, the Tom Cruise-led sci-fi action film is being shown again at 11pm on Monday (28th December 2020) in England.  Those in Wales have to wait until 11:30pm and Scotland another 15 minutes on top of that.  Looks like Northern Ireland aren’t getting a broadcast this time.

Rules in place in the UK at the moment require that you watch the film or Tom will shout and threaten to fire you if he sees you not doing so again.  You have been warned!

KM UK already has a comprehensive set of HD screencaps and a large sized promotional photograph seen above above in the Gallery.

Full details can be found on the BBC website here.

The Protocol Clip – Now With Added Kathryn

clip_003_09Finally, a clip from The Protocol with Kathryn really in it.

This follows on from the previously found video as Xen Sams (as Agent Chase) goes into the interrogation room to talk to Kathryn (brilliantly playing very pregnant woman).

clip_002No longer is she just a lady, sat alone in a room watched on a TV screen.  She’s actually a living, breathing, talking lady.

Kathryn’s character appears to be seeking asylum from an outer realm to this apparently wonderful place.  Wonderful if you like all your citizens drugged up to the eyeballs to prevent anything as horrible as feelings.  The snowflakes can’t handle, snowflakes.  It also prevents violence etc. too.  The drugs giveth, the drugs taketh away.

A copy of this new video has been added to the KM UK Gallery as well a small set of screencaps taken from it

The Protocol ‘Trailer’

clip_001_010Kathryn’s The Protocol co-star Xen Sams has been doing some promotional work following the screening of the piece at the recent New York Short Film Festival.

It has consisted mostly of interviews on various small YouTube channels and Facebook groups.  Xen’s main focus has been to talk about mental health issues the film was created to highlight.  The specific details of The Protocol; the plot, the cast, etc.; were largely glossed over during the chats.  However, one of them did start with a clip from the film.  Xen also started to say the project was being developed as a “network…” but was cut off before she could finish.  There has been talk from the beginning of looking at The Protocol as a possible TV series.  That must still be being tried.

clip_002The clip also emerged on Xen’s on YouTube channel and has been described separately as a trailer and a teaser.  To me a teaser is very brief and just gives a hint of the project in question.  A trailer should be a longer video containing more information about the story, with a few of the highlights shown.  Ideally it should be spoiler free but all to often these days major film trailers show too much.  This is more of a clip.  As it happens it dovetails into the clip KM UK previously found over 2 years ago.  It fits into the middle of it.

Kathryn only features in the background on a screen, sat in the interrogation room, as we’ve seen previously.

Watch the new clip of The Protocol courtesy of Xen Sams on HERE on YouTube. A small copy has been added to the KM UK Gallery as well.

The video description from YouTube gives a lot more information about the film:

In a dystopian future, after decades of war, the leadership of a new government, called The Federation, was formed to provide a safe haven for those that wanted to rid themselves of the raw human emotions that devastated an entire generation. On the verge of collapse, the government directed the nation’s scientists to develop a drug therapy that inhibits all emotional imbalance. No longer would race, religion, crime, or violence impact these citizens. In the few remaining city-states, the drug therapy is mandated for all citizens… because of the Protocol, a modern-day Utopia was born. But just outside of the gates in the Exclusion Zone… a new enemy was born. One that resisted the drugs. Their sole purpose of destroying everything that the Federation had built. Welcome to Paradise.
