Rather than the origins of finance or destination of profits it's the amount of total budget spent in the UK that qualifies a film as British. I think it presently stands at 70% of total budget. I'm sure the guidelines are stricter for films seeking assistance from the Film Council.</div><div class='quotemain'>Marky B:
Keeping on the same thread,but different films,I was surprised to learn that Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Troy and so forth were the most successful British films of 2004. Yes,perhaps they did use British labour - and why not? - but are they British? Surely the moolahs goes back into US pockets?[/b]
Both Potter and Troy are Pinewood-Shepperton productions.
Personally I regard Troy as a US film.
