Tom Returns to MCM Birmingham This Weekend



MCM Comic Con has announced that Tom will be appearing at their Birmingham show this weekend, on both Saturday and Sunday, March 19-20. Autographs will be £20, photo ops £25. He will also participate in a Q&A session both days, which is free to all con attendees. You can purchase tickets for entry on the MCM Comic Con website, and advance tickets for photo ops will be available on that same link as well. Tom makes it very worth every fan's while at these events, so if you are anywhere in the area you should absolutely make the effort to attend!

Dead Cat: Available Now



The Dead Cat filmmakers took pity on those who have been dying to see the movie, and made it available for rental and download on Vimeo a little early. Click through this link and enter the code 'ilovetommison' (cheeky!) to receive a 10% discount. Those guys really get us.

The film is fantastic. It’s a sweet romantic story, but also very funny, a little raunchy, poignant and just really well done (especially considering they produced it with a ridiculously small budget). The cast is fantastic from top to bottom, and Tom is particularly good. We get to see an entirely different side to him - the character couldn't be further from Ichabod Crane, which only underscores how very talented he is.

For more information on the film, you can follow @DeadCatUK on Twitter, on Facebook or visit their website.

Dead Cat: Release Date Announced!



Patience and just a small amount of begging has finally paid off. The film Dead Cat will be available for rental and download on Vimeo starting this Friday, March 11th. This is absolutely wonderful news.

The project was a labor of love - it was produced on a shoestring budget, with money raised through donations and fundraising events such as a speed dating night (very much in keeping with the film's theme). It hit the international film festival circuit and won scads of awards, including the British Lion Award for Achievement in Film from the British Independent Film Festival and Best Supporting Actor to Tom from the Southhampton Film Festival. It has gotten many glowing reviews such as this one:

Whilst the love story between Michael and Kristen is a touching one which is full of intrigue about the past as well as hope for the future, it is surprisingly the relationship between Michael and his mates (Tim, Marco & Sam played beautifully by Tom Mison, Johnny Palmiero and Sam Bern) that is the real heart of the film. By using a group of real friends as the central performers, Stefan Georgiu and his co writer Sam Bern (who also stars) have a great foundation of naturally relaxed friendship on top of which to build their touching and hilarious script, allowing them to really push the sense of a group of “men’s men” who for all their bravado and blokey banter, have a friendship run through with a real love and caring for each other that only the oldest of friendships can have.

Make sure to watch the charming trailer below and visit the spiffy new Dead Cat website for more info on the film.
