Benedict Cumberbatch’s Short Film ‘Little Favour’ to Get Worldwide iTunes release

It’s a day that ends in “y”, so it’s probably time to watch a preview for a new Benedict Cumberbatch project of some type. This is in no way a complaint, mind you. At all. We can do this everyday; it’s cool.

The Sherlock star’s latest is a new independent short film project, an action thriller entitled Little Favour. The film was made by production company SunnyMarch – a collaboration founded by Cumberbatch himself, along with friends Adam Ackland and Ben Dillon – and made headlines earlier this year by way of its super successful Indigogo public fundraising campaign. We’re talking £85,000 worth of successful, just so you know.

A brief teaser trailer was released a few weeks ago, and now a proper trailer has finally arrived, which you can watch below. (Spoiler: It looks amazing.) Best news of all, however, is probably the announcement that Cumberbatch fans around the world won’t have to struggle with how to see the film for themselves – a frequent problem in a global media marketplace.

Because Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch has seemingly been involved in literally every other kind of production this year (not that we’re complaining, mind), it should come as no surprise that he’s also got a new short film project on the horizon.

Called Little Favour, the independent action thriller pairs Cumberbatch with Harry Potter’s Nick Moran and Arrow’s Colin Salmon. It follows the story of Wallace (played by Cumberbatch), when is contacted by a former colleague to help him out with a deal gone wrong.
