ONLY AT THE CINEMAS SEPTEMBER 1

SYNOPSIS:

Mel Gibson returns to the big screen with shades of Sicario and Payback in this edge-of-your-seat action thriller. Scripted by Straight Outta Compton’s Andrea Berloff and The Town’s Peter Craig (based on his novel), BLOODFATHER is brought to the screen by the team behind The Prophet and Rust & Bone and helmed by the César-winning French director behind the acclaimed Mesrine films.

Action and attitude meets humour and humility as Gibson stars as John Link – an ex-con trying – none too enthusiastically – to embrace life on the straight and narrow. Eking out a meagre existence as a tattoo artist in his trailer park home, he battles with his past and his future. When his estranged daughter, Lydia is caught up in a drug deal gone wrong, she finds herself reaching out to the last man she ever thought she’d need – her father. Only he can protect her from those who want her dead, and only he will – no matter what it may cost him.

ONLY AT THE CINEMAS AUGUST 25
But see it first at this preview screening!

SYNOPSIS:

Directed, written by and starring Ricky Gervais, David Brent: Life on the Road sees a documentary crew catching up with David Brent, former star of hit series The Office. Brent is now a rep selling cleaning products up and down the country. The thing is, he has never really given up on his dream of becoming a rock star. In this documentary, we follow him on the road trying to get a record deal – his one last shot at fame. He puts a band together (a group of mercenary session musicians taking his money with absolutely no love for him or his dream) and ropes poor Dom (a rapper who he was meant to be managing) into coming on tour. Let-down after let-down, faux pas after faux pas, Brent never gives up his dream… just his hard earned money and a cashed-in pension to fund the whole folly. With original music by the man himself, David Brent: Life on the Road is exciting, funny, excruciating and just a little sad.
