British director Danny Boyle will be on stage at BFI Southbank (formerly the National Film Theatre) in London on Monday March 19 to discuss his latest film, Sunshine, and his career to date. We have three pairs of tickets to give away to the preview screening and interview.

Danny Boyle burst on to the filmgoer’s consciousness with 1996’s freewheeling Trainspotting, turning Irvine Welsh’s novel about a bunch of loser heroin addicts in Edinburgh into a hyperkinetic, epochal award-winning film, pleasing audiences and critics alike.

With screenwriter John Hodge, Boyle unleashed his distinctive storytelling style in such urban comedies of manners as Shallow Grave and A Life Less Ordinary. Since 2000, Boyle has partnered with novelist Alex Garland, adapting the latter’s The Beach, and moving into dystopian horror territory with 28 Days Later.

Boyle and Garland’s latest collaboration, Sunshine, is a bold leap into the sci-fi thriller genre. The story is set 50 years in the future, when a crew of eight is sent to revive our dying sun, only for the mission to soon unravel.

Following a special preview screening on Monday March 19 at 6.30pm, Danny Boyle will be live on stage at BFI Southbank to take part in a Guardian Interview, discussing the new film and his career to date.

We have three pairs of tickets to give away for the screening and interview. To be in with a chance, just leave a contact number in the box below.


Please provide a daytime telephone number. We will only use it to contact you if you win.
