David Tennant's new film, You, Me And Him is due to be released on 12 April in cinemas in the UK.
The film tells the story of two women’s differing experiences with pregnancy. One, Alex (Lucy Punch) is a 40-year-old magistrate, the other, Olivia (Faye Marsay) a carefree party girl. The twist is that they are in a relationship with each other. The action unfolds over a 12 month timeframe. David plays the role of the couple’s neighbour, John, a Casanova style character who is responsible for one of the pregnancies.
Fans in the USA have already had the chance to see the film after it premiered on Showtime in December last year. There have also been two recent screenings in Scotland, at the Glasgow Film Festival and the Festival Of Ideas in Kirkaldy.
Here's what fans had to say about it:

crime that won’t soon be forgotten.
Other previously announced series regulars will include Janicza Bravo, Arturo Del Puerto, Brett

Entertainment columnist Baz Bamigboye claims that David Tennant is among a number of actors currently in talks over a proposed tribute to Harold Pinter, set to take place later this year. A season of the late playwright's one act plays is planned for the Harold Pinter Theatre (formerly the Comedy Theatre) to run during late August to September 2018.
Also reported to be in talks for 'Pinter At The Pinter' are Jane Horrocks, David Suchet and Iwan Rheon. Director Jamie Lloyd is also thought to have been approached, as has writer and director Patrick Marber, who directed David last year in the revival of his own play Don Juan In Soho.
Pinter's widow, Lady Antonia Fraser, is behind the season and it is understood that the plays will include Celebration, A Kind Of Alaska, Mountain Language, Victoria Station, The
Dumb Waiter, Night School and A Slight Ache.
So far nothing has been confirmed, but if there are any updates we will share them as soon as we know anything.
