The heartwarming tale of Dave’s crusade against the big banks, which is released globally on Netflix tomorrow (Monday), stars Bond actor Rory Kinnear in the title role and Games of Thrones star Joel Fry as the lawyer who makes it happen.

Bridgerton’s Phoebe Dynevor, Hugh Bonneville of Downton Abbey and Paddington fame, as well as a few surprise cameos contribute to what Netflix believe will be its feelgood movie of the year.

And in true ‘Dave from Burnley’ fashion, the man himself forwent a limousine to arrive at the glitzy occasion in one of his own minibuses.

Local viewers will be pleased to see that many familiar Burnley and Pendle locations play their part as “supporting characters” in the film, which will be broadcast on television screens around the world.
