  The Wall on Blu-ray, DVD and digital [read more]
  Under fire
  STUDIOCANAL is pleased to announce that the highly intense and gripping action war film - THE WALL - will be available on Digital Download from 17 November 2017 and on Blu-ray and DVD from 20 November 2017. Pre-order now at the link above.

From Doug Liman, director of The Bourne Identity, American Made, and Edge of Tomorrow, comes a deadly psychological thriller and a war film like no other. U.S. Sergeants Allen Isaac (Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Nocturnal Animals, Godzilla, Avengers: Age of Ultron) and Shane Matthews (WWE's John Cena) are investigating a pipeline construction site in a desert of Iraq.

When he heads into open space, Matthews is shot by an Iraqi sniper, leaving Isaac to take cover and form a rescue plan behind an unsteady, crumbling wall. What unfolds is as much a battle of will and wits as it is of lethally accurate marksmanship in the toughest of conditions.

  The Crunch and Other Stories on DVD [read more]
  Three Nigel Kneale rarities from the archive
  Best known for his pioneering Quatermass stories and harrowing adaptation of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty Four, as well as later TV triumphs like The Stone Tape and The Woman in Black, Nigel Kneale is widely regarded as one of Britain's greatest scriptwriters. Making his name at the BBC in the 1950s, he subsequently wrote acclaimed dramas for ITV over the following decades – of which three are presented here.

The plays on this set showcase some of Kneale's most enduring themes: a deep sympathy for the plight of the individual facing an unimaginable threat; the unease and paranoia of the Cold War era, and fears of an uncertain near-future; and the volatility and potential menace of the crowd.

THE CRUNCH stars Harry Andrews as a prime minister attempting to avert a nuclear catastrophe in London; Maxwell Shaw, Anthony Bushell and Peter Bowles are among his co-stars.

LADIES' NIGHT is a chilling story of misogyny as members of a gentlemen's club turn on a woman who ridicules them; a strong cast includes Alfred Burke, Ronald Pickup and Bryan Pringle.

GENTRY stars Roger Daltrey in a blackly comic suspense drama in which a couple buy a shabby house in an up-and-coming area but find themselves drawn into the aftermath of an armed robbery.

The Crunch and Other Stories (15) is available on DVD on 25 September 2017, RRP £14.99, courtesy of Network Distributing.

  Creative England's Shortflix
  Talent scouting
  Creative England today announced plans to continue their successful collaboration with leading young people's theatre organisation NYT and global broadcaster Sky on the short film initiative SHORTFLIX. With applications due to open again this autumn, the programme will open its doors to the UK's undiscovered and ambitious filmmaking talent from diverse backgrounds with a story to tell about their community, heritage and identity, giving them the opportunity to make their first short film.

SHORTFLIX will be open for applications to young people aged 18-25 who are not currently in full-time education, employment or training, as the programme addresses the issue of equal opportunities within the creative industries. It draws on the expertise, network and experience of leading industry experts and stakeholders to take a longlist of projects selected for development from initial idea to script or outline stage, leading to five original short films being selected for production and broadcast to UK audiences.

SHORTFLIX first launched in March 2017 and the five talented winners' unique and personal projects will be made into short films for Sky Arts with a budget of £10,000 each. These include: Dior Clarke & Blain Ho-Shing with BATTY BOY, an uncompromising look at black gay culture in London; Abena Taylor-Smith's film LADIES DAY, a warm-hearted story about a young black woman coming out against the backdrop of an Afro-Caribbean hair-shop in Sheffield; LOSING IT by Ben Robins, a pitch black sex-comedy; NOSEBLEED by Hollie Moore, an art-house psycho-drama about a toxic female friendship; and TOGETHER, THEY SMOKE by Henry Gale, a tragi-comedy set in Bath about coping with terminal illness in surprising ways. The five stories were chosen for their intensity and authenticity, and for the filmmakers' compelling passion to tell them. All the films are based on or inspired by the personal experience of the filmmakers.

  The Man Who Invented Christmas
  Bah, humbug
  Thunderbird Releasing is delighted to announce that THE MAN WHO INVENTED CHRISTMAS will be released in cinemas nationwide from Friday 1st December. The film stars Dan Stevens as the literary genius, Charles Dickens, and tells the story behind the timeless Christmas classic, A Christmas Carol.

In 1843, Dickens was a literary rock star, but struggling financially after the slow sales of his previous novel, Martin Chuzzlewit. Seized with the vision of a story that would fire the hearts of humanity, Dickens pitched his publishers, A Christmas Carol, but they passed. Desperate, Dickens declared he would publish it himself. Slipping into the world of his novel, he spent the next six weeks laughing and arguing with his characters, acting out scenes like a madman on the streets of London for hours on end.

His family and friends worried he was going insane, but Dickens prevailed and finished just before Christmas, creating a masterpiece which gave birth to the Christmas we know and love today.

Directed by Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, Spooks), THE MAN WHO INVENTED CHRISTMAS stars Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey, Beauty and the Beast), Christopher Plummer (The Sound of Music) as Ebenezer Scrooge, Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones) as John Dickens, Miriam Margolyes (Harry Potter and the Chambers of Secrets), and Simon Callow (Victoria and Abdul, Four Weddings and a Funeral).

  Man In An Orange Shirt on DVD [read more]
  Generations of love
  Man In An Orange Shirt is a heart-breaking, unforgettable two-part journey of love spanning two generations, from the repressive 1940s to present day highlighting the conflicts within one family alongside the different social and emotional challenges facing gay men over that period. The first part focuses on World War 2 veterans Michael (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) and Thomas (James McArdle), comrades at arms in the army and companions in bed until Michael chooses conformity over his heart's desire, marrying Flora (Joanna Vanderham) whilst Thomas becomes an openly gay artist. It brings years of suppressed desire, and unhappiness.

Part two takes us to 2017 and Michael's grandson, Adam (Julian Morris) who is still single in his 30s and living with his grandmother, Flora (Vanessa Redgrave). He bounces from one casual encounter to another until he meets emotionally adjusted but married Simon. However, when one of Thomas's paintings resurfaces, it unleashes long-hidden memories and suppressed emotions that have consequences for everyone involved.

The first TV drama written by acclaimed novelist Patrick Gale (A Town Called Winter, Rough Notes) and specially commissioned by Kudos Films for BBC, Man In An Orange Shirt draws on some of his own personal history to make a compelling story of the human heart.

DVD RELEASE DATE: 18th SEPTEMBER.
