BRITISH actors Bill Nighy and Gemma Arterton will appear in a fascinating new short film this summer, to highlight the work of leading conservation charity WWF and inspire an interest in the natural world.

Written by acclaimed writer-director Stephen Poliakoff and directed by BAFTA award winning Charles Sturridge, ‘Astonish Me’ takes viewers on a journey showcasing some of the world’s lesser known or recently discovered species, from massive insects to colossal squid, a fish with a transparent head and birds and frogs of every colour.

“It’s extraordinary in the 21st Century there are so many animals out there that we’re seeing or discovering for the first time,” said Stephen Poliakoff. “I was adrenalised when I found out just how much had been discovered over the past 10 years. I hope this film will get people exhilarated by the natural world.”

To be screened in Odeon cinemas across the country from the 29 July 2011, the short five minute film, using real images and special effects, follows the journey of a young boy who discovers a whole world of new species he never knew existed. Read More
