If you'd like to keep an eye on the Sean Bean page (address below) I'm
trying to stay on top of the film's release, which is March 1st in the
UK.  Not sure if they're going to release it in North America, however I
had read that the title was changed from A Pint o' Bitter to When
Saturday Comes because North American audiences would allegedly not be
able to understand the reference (!).

What do Richard Sharpe, Alec Trevelyan (006) and Oliver Mellors
have in common?  Sean Bean.
