 FROM THE CREATORS OF VENDETTA AND WE STILL KILL THE OLD WAY 
 British indie distributor Bulldog Film Distribution, alongside Shogun Films, have confirmed the release of the upcoming gangland home invasion thriller, Nemesis. The film will be released on DVD and across Digital Download platforms from 29th March.

Written by Adam Stephen Kelly (Done InKill Kane) and directed by James Crow (House of Salem), the film stars genre veterans Billy Murray (Rise of the Footsoldier), Frank Harper (The Football Factory), Nick Moran (Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels) and Jeanine Nerissa Sothcott (The Krays Dead Man Walking).  

When underworld kingpin John Morgan (Billy Murray) returns to London with his wife Sadie (Jeanine Nerissa Sothcott) from their perfect life abroad, a feud is reignited with vengeful cop Frank Conway (Nick Moran) who is obsessed with bringing him down. Meanwhile, pressure from big boss Damien Osbourne (Bruce Payne) only adds unnecessary heat to the rising tension within the family busines, with Morgan’s brother Richard (Frank Harper) and nephew Eddie (Danny Bear) constantly at each other’s throats.

John aims to bring the Morgan gang together at a party in his plush apartment where they are set to meet his daughter Kate’s (Ambra Moore) new girlfriend Zoe (Lucy Aarden) – but all is not what it seems and as the night progresses a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues ending in revenge and murder, as the family are trapped in their own home by a gang of heavily armed intruders. 
 Shogun’s Jonathan Sothcott, whose credits include UK home entertainment successes Vendetta, We Still Kill The Old Way and The Krays Dead Man Walking said,  “For the first Shogun Film we’re pulling no punches – Nemesis is an intelligent, morally ambiguous London crime thriller with career-best performances from some of the best actors in the genre including Billy Murray and Nick Moran. This is gritty, uncompromising British independent film at its best.” 

Nemesis will be available on DVD & Digital Download from 29th March

Lost At Christmas is set in the remote Scottish town of Fort William, on Christmas Eve, when life is turned upside down for Jen (Natalie Clark) and Rob (Kenny Boyle). Suddenly finding themselves heartbroken, single and stranded, they team up to try and reach home 100 miles away to be with their families. “Borrowing” Jen’s now ex-boyfriend’s classic car, the pair hit the road, but it’s not long before the weather turns for the worse forcing them to continue their journey on foot.

Bickering and bonding across the snowy Moors of Glencoe, they eventually arrive at a remote inn where they meet other guests dead set on avoiding the traditional Christmas joy. However, as Christmas Day draws closer, will happiness emerge and draw Jen and Rob together?

Lost at Christmas will bring you in from the cold, lighten your heart and provide the ultimate feel-good Christmas cinema experience.

A Christmas Carol follows a Victorian family as they prepare a toy-theatre for their annual performance of A Christmas Carol. The audience enters the imagination of one of the children and quickly the cardboard stage transforms to reveal a magical world containing real dancers and stylised sets.  The tale unfolds on screen in a rich tapestry of highly absorbing, haunting and theatrical drama with characters portrayed by dancers and voiced by an eclectic cast of incredible actors. The mix of danced action and spoken narration brings a completely new and exciting dimension to Dickens’ characters whilst remaining true to the beauty of his original narrative.
 
With pantomime season all but cancelled, the dual approach to release is to support both cinema and theatre industries during a time of financial hardship generated by the Coronavirus pandemic. The announcement of a second lockdown has not changed directors David and Jacqui Morris’s approach towards such an inherently theatrical film, best enjoyed on the big screen. Both directors see the release and supporting local cinemas and theatres as an inherent part of A Christmas Carol’s 2020 release.

Cinema provides escapism, a chance to get lost in a story, to be taken to far away lands, be touched by fear, by love, by painful situations. It provides a safe space for people from the outside world, a social space for those meeting with friends and somewhere to catch forty winks in a dark room if you so wish.

The news this week that Cineworld will be temporarily closing its operations from Thursday and Odeon closing some venues during the week came as a blow and it is easy to assume that nothing is coming out. That is not the case. Between now and Christmas, there are tonnes of releases for all groups and ages to enjoy and to do so safely.

‘Rose – A Love Story’ to premiere at BFI London Film Festival

0
Mini Productions, Great Point Media, Bone Garden Films, Fields Park & The Development Partnership are excited to share the poster and trailer for new UK horror, Rose – A Love Story ahead of celebrating its World Premiere at the 2020 BFI London Film Festival on 13th October as part of the CULT strand. 

Starring Sophie Rundle (Peaky Blinders, Gentleman Jack) & Matt Stokoe (Cursed, Jamestown), Rose – A Love Story follows a young couple living alone in the woods, who must contend with a life-altering illness that manifests itself in a violent and terrifying way.

Sam (Stokoe) and Rose (Rundle) live a quiet life. Hunkered down in their remote woodland farmhouse, they spend their days far from the prying eyes of the outside world. Rose uses the peace and quiet to work on her novel, while Sam sets traps, hunts animals and goes to work fortifying the hidden cottage they call home. In another life, their world would seem idyllic; but Rose’s mystery illness has clouded any sense of normality that the couple may achieve.
                 
When a trip to collect supplies goes awry, Sam and Rose are thrown into a terrifying series of events that soon herald the arrival of a mysterious stranger. The little life that the couple have forged for themselves is now more fragile than ever. 
The 2020 BFI London Film Festival will be the first ever edition of the Festival to be widely accessible across the UK, with 50 Virtual Festival Premieres to be enjoyed at home. In the most accessible version of the festival to UK audiences yet, film lovers will be given an opportunity to connect for a unique and innovative festival experience, enjoying both live and digital screenings across the 12 days of the Festival.

Rose – A Love Story is the feature directorial debut for multi-award winning shorts director Jennifer Sheridan who, for the last ten years has been honing her storyteller skills through her work as an editor on shows such as Cuckoo and League of Gentleman. 

Rose – A Love Story will be celebrating its World Premiere on 13th October at the 2020 London Film Festival, book your tickets here!

UK Theatrical Release: Creation Stories

0

On the 60th birthday of music industry svengali, Alan McGee, Burning Wheel Productions are delighted to reveal a brand new teaser clip from their upcoming title CREATION STORIES.

CREATION STORIES is the feature film of the life of McGee – the adaptation of his highly acclaimed autobiography ‘Creation Stories – Riots, Raves and Running a Record Label‘.

Producer Shelley Hammond was delighted with the reveal. “We are really excited for everyone to get a first glimpse at Creation Stories! It’s a true British film in the best way possible. Nick Moran and everyone involved has done an absolutely sterling job and the best part is soon to come – when it’s out there for all to see!” 

The film features a star-studded British cast including Ewen Bremner, Suki WaterhouseJason IsaacsJason FlemyngPaul Kaye,  Steven BerkoffThomas Turgoose & Ed Byrne.

Written by cult figure Irvine Welsh with writing partner Dean CavanaghCREATION STORIES is being directed by Nick Moran (Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) with Danny Boyle (Trainspotting,  Slumdog Millionaire) executive producing.

“Creation Stories’ is a modern day fable. Part cautionary tale, part cavalier romp, mostly hilarious, occasionally sobering & constantly engaging.” Said Director Nick Moran“An irresistible trip down memory lane, or a delightful history lesson about the last great days of Rock & Roll. When Britannia ruled the airwaves, thanks to one man with his misfit mates and their indie record label that briefly changed history. It is shamelessly entertaining and I hope, a joy for everyone!”

The beginning, near bankruptcy, pills, thrills, spats, prats, success, excess and breakdowns. From leaving school at sixteen to setting up the Living Room club in London, showcasing emerging indie bands, from managing The Jesus and Mary Chain to co-founding Creation at 23. He brought us My Bloody ValentineHouse of LoveRide and, of course, Primal Scream. Embracing acid house, Alan decamped to Manchester, and hung out at the Hacienda, taking Creation into the big time with Primal Scream’s Screamadelica. His drug-induced breakdown, when it came, was dramatic, but climbing back to sobriety, he oversaw Oasis‘ rise to become one of the biggest bands in the world.

Coming to UK Cinemas soon!

UK theatrical release: Antrum

0
Danse Macabre have confirmed that the controversial horror Antrum will be released in UK Cinemas on 23rd October and on DVD & Digital from 26th October, over forty years after its original release.

Antrum, a feature length film shot in the late 1970’s, is said to be cursed. In 1988, a movie theatre in Budapest that was screening the film burnt to the ground, killing the 56 people who were in attendance. This incident follows the inexplicable deaths of a number of film festival programmers that had received Antrum as a submission and died shortly after watching it. These events have created a belief that watching Antrum will kill you.



Believed to have been lost, a sole copy of the film was tracked down and packaged for public release. After a short 10 minute documentary which examines the dark history of the film, viewers are given the opportunity to watch the original version of this cursed film at their own risk.

The film features a teenage girl and her young brother putting their dog to sleep for a violent act it committed. In an effort to save its soul, they enter a forest that contains “The Antrum”, the very spot that the devil landed when he was cast out of heaven. There they begin to dig towards hell, and the deeper they dig the more dangerous the forest becomes. It has been observed that at this point in the film more malevolent events start happening to the audience watching it.

As a journalist has observed, “ANTRUM’s reputation is partially due to additional real-world events that took place as the actual film was being shown. When ANTRUM screened at Fanta Fest in Rome, the organisers brought in a priest to bless the theatre.”

Antrum will be in UK Cinemas from 23rd October and DVD & Digital Download from 26th October.

“I Made This For You” Available to Watch for Free to mark World Suicide Prevention Day

0
I Made This For You, a searingly honest British feature film that tackles mental health, depression and suicide head on is now available to watch for free on Youtube globally. The release marks World Suicide Prevention Day and will be showing on the platform for a month until World Mental Health Day on October 10th. 

Watch the film here: https://youtu.be/SWLhoUr2vCM

I Made This For You follows a man, played by Gary Grant (Enemy Lines), who cuts himself off from his friends and family and has recently attempted suicide. He is pulled back from the edge by a documentary made about his life by a friend, played by director Cristian Solimeno (Guilt, Rush, Footballers Wives). His friends also include Alison Newman (Eastenders, Footballers Wives) , Dermot Murphy (Animals, The Drummer and The Keeper), Francis Magee (Star Wars: Rogue One, Game of Thrones) and West End star Siobhan Dillon (Cabaret, Grease, Sunset Boulevard, Miss Saigon).

The film within a film mixes reality with fiction in a unique and groundbreaking way. Despite the seriousness of the subject, what results is something funny, beautiful and deeply cathartic that provokes action and conversation.
Following the film, Director Cristian Solimeno also created the #imadethisforyou social campaign. The campaign invites people to take a moment out from their lives to try and make something for someone who is going through a hard time and share these acts of kindness for the week of World Suicide Prevention Day.

The aim is to create an explosion of love, kindness and creativity that empowers people to reach out and gives us the confidence to actually try. It can be a cake, a card, a jumper or a song. 

The point is to make things with other people in mind and to give these things away to show you care. Random acts of kindness count and can make a real difference.
 I Made This For You will is available NOW for FREE on Youtube:
