Sam Claflin is the new face of DKNY Men’s Spring 2018 #OnlyInDKNY Campaign! It’s great to see a new photoshoot of Sam as well. You can watch a new video from the campaign below and check out photos from the promotional shoot.
Starring Shailene Woodley (Fault in Our Stars, Divergent films) and Sam Claflin (Me Before You, The Hunger Games films), ADRIFT is based on the inspiring true story of two free spirits whose chance encounter leads them first to love, and then to the adventure of a lifetime. As the two avid sailors set out on a journey across the ocean, Tami Oldham (Woodley) and Richard Sharp (Claflin) couldn’t anticipate they would be sailing directly into one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history. In the aftermath of the storm, Tami awakens to find Richard badly injured and their boat in ruins. With no hope for rescue, Tami must find the strength and determination to save herself and the only man she has ever loved. ADRIFT is the unforgettable story about the resilience of the human spirit and the transcendent power of love.
But after a hurricane crippled their yacht, which the couple were delivering from Tahiti to San Diego, the trip turned into a survival tale, as depicted in Adrift (in theaters June 1). USA TODAY reveals exclusive first photos from the movie.
In Adrift, with Sharp injured in the storm, Oldham sails for 41 days to reach safety.
“The idea of portraying the life of a woman whose mere inner strength and sheer willpower carried her through one of the most treacherous situations one could face as a human being was so extremely moving to me,” says Woodley, who learned to sail for the sea story.
Oldham wrote about the ordeal in her 1998 book, Red Sky in Mourning: A True Story of Love, Loss and Survival at Sea. The New Zealand-based Adrift crew spent more than five weeks shooting on the open sea.
“Every single stunt you see in the film where Sam or I are in the ocean is really us in the deep sea,” says Woodley. “Honestly, it was the most fun I’ve ever had filming.”
Director Baltasar Kormákur, who has helmed adventure stories such as 2015’s Everest, says the romantic tale takes a big turn when it becomes an Oldham-led survival epic.
“First of all, we don’t have many survival stories where the survivor is a young woman or a woman at all,” says Kormákur. “How the story intertwines the love between Richard and Tami and the survival tale is compelling. And it asks us the question, ‘What is it that makes us survivors?’ ”
Woodley, set to return for the second season of award-winning Big Little Lies, says she was inspired meeting the real Oldham.
“I learned that in spite of any adversity or trauma Tami has faced in her life, she has chosen to embrace the gift of simply living — the gift of being alive,” Woodley says.
Congratulations to Sam and Laura! <3
EVENING STANDARD – Sam Claflin and wife Laura Haddock have welcomed their second child.
The Hunger Games actor revealed that he has become a father for the second time with Guardians of the Galaxy actress Laura Haddock, just three weeks ago.
The newborn is sister to two-year-old brother Pip.
The 31-year-old actor spoke about the experience to Chris Evans on his Breakfast show with Geri Horner.
Evans said: “Congratulations. Three weeks old now? Congratulations my friend, You seem glowing.”
Claflin quipped: “It’s happy news. She’s very new and shiny. I however am not.”
It’s Raining Men singer Horner ousted Claflin, bringing up a conversation the pair had earlier.
The 45-year-old actress said: “She peed on you this morning. That’s what you said earlier. It’s changing nappies!”
“Whoever told you that girls don’t wee as much as boys is an absolute liar”, the actor joked.
Horner congratulated the actor on doing his part in caring for his new daughter.
She said: “I absolutely love that he’s changing nappies!”
