Idris Elba & Fiancee Sabrina Dhowre Premieres 'Yardie' at Berlin Film Fest - Watch Teaser Trailer!

Idris Elba is all smiles as he holds hands with his fiancee Sabrina Dhowre at the premiere of Yardie held during the 2018 Berlin International Film Festival at Zoo Palast on Thursday (February 22) in Berlin, Germany.

The 45-year-old actor and the 29-year-old model were accompanied by the film’s producers Dan MacRae, Robin Gutch and Gina Carter as they also attended the photo call at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.

Yardie is the feature directorial debut from Idris. Set in ’70s Kingston and ’80s Hackney, Yardie centres on the life of a young Jamaican man named D (Aml Ameen), who has never fully recovered from the murder, committed during his childhood, of his older brother Jerry Dread (Everaldo Creary). D grows up under the wing of a Kingston Don and music producer named King Fox (Sheldon Shepherd).

Fox dispatches him to London, where he reconnects with his childhood sweetheart, Yvonne (Shantol Jackson), and his daughter who he’s not seen since she was a baby. He also hooks up with a soundclash crew, called High Noon. But before he can be convinced to abandon his life of crime and follow “the righteous path”, he encounters the man who shot his brother 10 years earlier, and embarks on a bloody, explosive quest for retribution – a quest which brings him into conflict with vicious London gangster Rico (Stephen Graham) – Watch the trailer below!

Willem DaFoe Says He's 'Not Attracted Naturally' To TV Roles!

Willem Dafoe is dapper in all black while attending a photo call and press conference at the 2018 Berlin International Film Festival held at Grand Hyatt Hotel on Tuesday (February 20) in Berlin, Germany.

The 62-year-old Florida Project star was in attendance to accept the Honorary Golden Bear Award for lifetime achievement at the Berlin Film Festival.

During the press conference, Willem was asked if he would ever migrate to television.

“I’m not attracted naturally to television. I really think there’s a difference between television and cinema,” Willem expressed (via Deadline). “Lately, a lot of energy and resources are going to television. It sits in the culture in a more popular way than film. But I still find many opportunities in film and I think film has a special power TV almost never has to create a mystery and poetry. I’m more narrative obsessed.”
