Over a decade on from playing a Bond girl, British actress Rosamund Pike is about to enter a whole new act of her career. Hot off acclaimed recent roles in the likes of "An Education" and "The World's End," Pike landed one of the most hotly sought-after parts around: the female lead in David Fincher's adaptation of best-selling thriller "Gone Girl," opposite Ben Affleck. It's easily the most high profile gig she's ever had and stands a good chance of attracting awards attention and vaulting her to a new level of stardom.

What We Did On Our Holiday

Over a decade on from playing a Bond girl, British actress Rosamund Pike is about to enter a whole new act of her career. Hot off acclaimed recent roles in the likes of "An Education" and "The World's End," Pike landed one of the most hotly sought-after parts around: the female lead in David Fincher's adaptation of best-selling thriller "Gone Girl," opposite Ben Affleck. It's easily the most high profile gig she's ever had and stands a good chance of attracting awards attention and vaulting her to a new level of stardom.

But before that, she's got some lighter fare to deal with, as Pike is starring with "Doctor Who" and "Broadchurch" star David Tennant, and the legendary Billy Connolly, in new comedy "What We Did On Our Holiday." Written and directed by Guy Jenkin and Andy Hamilton, it details a harassed couple and their three children on a road trip to visit grandparents in Scotland, but is notable mostly for essentially being a big-screen spin-off of Jenkin and Hamilton's sitcom "Outnumbered," which essentially let its young cast members improvise and riff, and managed to be fairly charming, in a kids-say-the-funniest-things kind of way. This doesn't exactly look cinematic, but there are a few good gags in here, and Pike, Tennant and Connolly are always welcome. The film hits UK theaters in September, no word on when it'll land after that.

In other trailers-from-across-the-pond news, Sundance drama "Lilting," which opened the festival back in January, also just got a first promo. Directed by first-timer Hong Khaou, it stars Ben Whishaw as a young man who tracks down the Chinese mother of his late partner. It picked up some strong reviews back at Sundance and hits UK theaters and VOD on August 8th, with Strand releasing it in the U.S. down the line.

And finally, there's a trailer for "Walking On Sunshine," a sunny musical made up of 80s hits like "Faith," "If I Could Turn Back Time," and Katrina & The Waves' title track. It looks like some kind of "Mamma Mia"-aping bachelorette party nightmare, but it's at least notable for featuring in the lead role Hannah Arterton, sister of Gemma, making her big-screen debut. It's out in the UK on June 27th.
