90s cult classic The Krays chronicling the life of two of Britain's most notorious gangsters is set for a Limited Edition Blu-ray release 12 July 2021

Two of Britain's most notorious brothers The Krays were taken on by another famous pair of siblings The Kemps in Peter Medak's big screen gangster biopic. Originally released in 1990 the film has gone on to gain cult status and is now set for a Limited Edition Blu-ray release from Second Sight Films this summer.

Gary and Martin Kemp were 80s music sensations, as part of the band Spandau Ballet they were internationally acclaimed with a huge fanbase... but when they made their big screen debut, people questioned whether they'd cut the mustard. They proved the doubters wrong with their powerhouse performances, as the infamous twins Ronnie and Reggie Kray and were supported by a stand-out cast including an impressive performance by award-winning actor Billie Whitelaw (The Omen) as their good old Mum.

More than 30 years after its premiere The Krays is now set for the Limited Edition Blu-ray Box set treatment, in a stunning rigid slip-case with brand-new artwork, a perfect bound booklet and a slew of special features on 12 July 2021

From their humble East End beginnings, Ronnie and Reggie Kray became the most notorious figures in London's gangland underworld. From extortion to murder, their horrific brutality became legendary and throughout the 50s and 60s they ruled by fear, until life sentences in 1969 finally ended their bloody reign of terror.

The last three instalments of series one see Pearl juggling work and family life around the festive season, and a new investigation when a mystery note lands on her plate; getting to the bottom of a boating 'accident' where a mother and daughter almost die and a gruesome discovery amongst the oyster beds that forces Pearl to face her past and ask questions surrounding her father's disappearance at sea.

Moving and inspiring documentary King Otto reliving the Greek National Football Team's Unlikely 2004 victory comes to DVD and digital 5 July

As this summer's highly anticipated European Championship kicks off, 101 Films is delighted to announce the release of King Otto - a brand-new critically acclaimed feature documentary that tells the inspiring story of one of football's most surprising victories, that caused one of the greatest upsets in sporting history.

In the summer of 2004, the world looked on in disbelief as Greece's National Football Team, a country that had never won a single match or even scored a goal in a major tournament, took down the giants of world football to become the unlikeliest of European Champions. The architect behind this unprecedented triumph was legendary German football coach 'King' Otto Rehhagel.

After accomplishing every major success in Germany, he made the bold decision to leave all he knew behind and work in a foreign country with the underachieving Greek National Team. This is the story of how these two contrasting cultures came together to speak the same language and write a new chapter of Greek mythology.

King Otto is a heartwarming and inspiring new film from director Christopher Andre Marks, that takes us back to this historic football moment where we relive the miracle first hand as told by those who lived it. It arrives on UK DVD and digital on 5 July 2021.

A rousing, emotional tale of passion, hope and the power of football to unite.

'The film... will be enshrined like its lead player in the annals of Greek history'

KERRY GODLIMAN PLAYS A RESTAURANTEUR TURNED DETECTIVE IN THIS ACORN ORIGINAL DRAMA SET ON THE CHARMING KENT COAST WITH THE FULL BOX SET AVAILABLE NOW ON ACORN TV

Head to the stunning Kent coast to discover the gem of a series Whitstable Pearl, a brand-new Acorn TV Original crime-drama starring acting favourite Kerry Godliman (After Life, Save Me, Adult Material) in the lead role as Pearl Nolan, alongside Frances Barber (Silk, Mr Holmes) as her mother Dolly and Howard Charles (The Musketeers, Liar, Shadow and Bone) as DCI Mike McGuire. It's set to premiere exclusively on Acorn TV beginning Monday, May 24, 2021 with the first two episodes, followed by weekly episodes through Monday, June 21.

This enthralling mystery series is based on acclaimed author Julie Wassmer's (EastEnders) much loved novels The Whitstable Pearl Mystery and Disappearance at Oare and is brought to life for the first time on screen by iconic Norwegian filmmaker Oystein Karlsen (Exit, Dag, Lilyhammer). Whitstable Pearl explores the dark undercurrents of murder and debauchery swirling beneath the surface of the picturesque 16th century English seaside resort of Whitstable, one of Kent's most stunning coastal towns, famous for its native oysters and buffeted by the prevailing winds and spray of the North Sea.

We meet big-hearted local celebrity Pearl Nolan (Godliman), who runs the eponymous Whitstable Pearl restaurant, but her real passion lies in detective work, after her police career was suddenly cut short many years before.

When Pearl discovers the body of close family friend, Vinnie, she's convinced it was foul play and following her instincts she embarks on her own murder investigation. Then a second body turns up and she finds herself embroiled in the dark underbelly of this picturesque town.

Teaming up with new arrival DCI Mike McGuire, Pearl is soon putting her distant police-training to good use and decides now is the time to set up for own detective agency. The world is her oyster.

The British seaside holiday will never be the same again. Set beneath huge skies and amid the lengthening shadows of a picture postcard town just miles from London, the friction between the locals and the wealthy city dwellers who have moved in, is palpable as centuries of village tradition grates against the inevitable pressure of money and gentrification.

Crimes most horrid have washed up on these shores, but there's a Pearl of wisdom who's ready to solve them.
