The 5th Annual Rule, Britannia Blogathon is Here!



The Fifth Annual Rule, Britannia Blogathon (formerly the British Invaders Blogathon) has arrived! The Rule, Britannia Blogathon is meant to celebrate classic, British films. While many think of Hollywood when they think of movies, the fact is that many classic films originated in the United Kingdom. From the Gainsborough melodramas to the Ealing comedies to the Hammer Horrors, the United Kingdom has made many contributions to classic film. The British Invaders Blogathon will last from today (August 3 2018) to Sunday (August 5 2018).

This year we have a wide range of posts lined up that span the history of British cinema. We also have a wide range of genres covered, from comedy to science fiction. For those participating in the blogathon, simply let me know in a comment here, a message on Twitter, or an email and I will add it to the list. And please remember to link to this page using one of the images from the introductory post! I want to thank everyone who is participating!
