Invite your students to list examples of both UK and US films they love from the last 10 years. Steer a discussion about the differences between the two lists in terms of plot, acting styles, use of special effects and scale.

Now challenge your students to produce 2 short clips of the same script excerpt of your choice, but one as they would imagine a US production would treat the script and the other how a UK production might do the same.

Compare and contrast the differences (beyond what can lead to hilarious accent impersonations) in the resulting clips and discuss how these might be reflected in terms of response from both UK and US audiences.
