Rules of the Game arrives 7 March 2022 courtesy of Acorn Media International

Renowned British actor Maxine Peake gives a powerhouse performance in Rules of the Game, a brand-new, four-part thriller which is set for its DVD and digital release on 7 March 2022 courtesy of Acorn Media International, following its premiere on BBC One.

Partly inspired by the Harvey Weinstein scandal and the subsequent #MeToo movement, Rules of the Game is a relevant and profound exploration of sexual politics in the modern workplace, penned by Ruth Fowler (Fairies Baseball) and from BAFTA-winning production company The Forge (National Treasure, Roadkill).

Sam (Peake - The Theory of Everything, Shameless, Silk) is a strong-willed manager at a family-run business in the North-West of England. It's business as usual - until she arrives in the office one day to find a dead body and is forced to confront some uncomfortable truths and murderous secrets, both past and present...

Her colleague Maya (Rakhee Thakrar - Sex Education, Four Weddings And A Funeral) the new HR director is intent on shaking up the outdated and toxic lad-culture and begins to look into historic cases of misconduct...but is faced with resistance from members of the team.

Alison Steadman (Gavin & Stacey, Life) plays Anita, a board member and hardened widower of the company's narcissistic founder, and Susan Wokoma (Enola Holmes, Truth Seekers) is DI Eve Preston, a thick-skinned, no-nonsense detective investigating a case linked to the company.

As the determined protagonists contend with institutional prejudices, one thing is clear: now is the time to change the Rules of the Game.

'Excellent... Sharply observed... Peake is particularly good... bringing an intoxicating mix of brittle and ballsy'

Censor Limited Edition Blu-ray arrives 31 January 2022 courtesy of Second Sight Films

Prano Bailey-Bond's acclaimed 'thrilling, dizzying debut' Censor stars the incredible Niamh Algar in a mesmerising performance as a dedicated and intense film censor during Britain's infamous 'video nasty' era, whose work slowly becomes intwined with her past. Now this brilliantly dark and disturbing British horror is set for the highly anticipated Limited Edition Blu-ray treatment from Second Sight Films on 31 January 2022.

Enid (Algar - Deceit, The Virtues) spends her days meticulously watching and assessing gruesomely violent and disturbing movies, taking her work as a film censor very seriously. She holds a strong sense of responsibility in protecting audiences from extreme content, subconsciously driven by the guilt she holds from a disturbing childhood trauma.

When a troubling film lands on her desk, Enid finds herself embroiled in the story and slowly starts to uncover some of her lost memories that seem strangely similar to the film. Consumed by the need to find if there is a connection between the production and the disappearance of her sister, her life spirals out of control, descending into darkness and danger.

Censor Limited Edition Blu-ray comes as a two-disc box set presented in a rigid slipcase with new artwork by James Neal and a soft cover book with brand new essays and art cards.

Acorn TV Original - The Chelsea Detective - Episode 1 gets its UK premiere and streaming exclusive on Acorn TV 7 February 2022

One episode per week on subsequent Mondays

Complete Box set and bonus features available from 28th February

Adrian Scarborough (Killing Eve, Gavin & Stacey, The King's Speech, 1917) takes the lead in this brand-new Acorn TV Original drama created and co-written by Peter Fincham. This four-part series makes its UK TV debut exclusively on Acorn TV.

Detective Inspector Max Arnold (Scarborough) lives on a houseboat on the Thames, in Chelsea, after separating from his art dealer wife Astrid (Anamaria Marinca - 4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days; Sex Traffic), just yards from some of the most valuable real estate in Europe. The beautiful borough is full of beautiful people, but it has a dark underside of deprivation, violence, greed - and murder. Bodies have a way of showing up, and things are rarely what they seem, but Max's determination and acuity mean he'll find a way to root out the truth and bring those responsible to justice - regardless of their wealth or status.

DC Arnold and his trusty colleague Streatham-born D.C. Priya Shamsie, played by Sonita Henry (Luther, Krypton), investigate a slew of enthralling cases from the strange to the complex, including the death of a lonely stonemason on the London Underground which , at first, seems like a real life haunting to Max. Might a more down-to-earth explanation be found as they uncover the truth about his life?




Kin receives its UK Premiere exclusively on Sundance Now via Amazon Prime Video Channels on 24 February 2022

Kin is a powerful, enthralling and slick new eight-part Irish gang drama, from AMC Networks that's set for its UK Premiere exclusively on Sundance Now via Amazon Prime Video Channels on 24 February 2022.

This thrilling, critically acclaimed drama follows the Kinsella clan - who, when their boy is killed - set off a gangland war with an international cartel - a war that is impossible to win. As the violence escalates, the in-fighting begins and the body count rises. There will be blood...lots of it.

With a sterling cast including Charlie Cox (Daredevil, Spiderman, Boardwalk Empire), Clare Dunne (Herself, Spiderman: Far From Home), Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones, The Wire), and Ciaran Hinds (Game of Thrones, The Terror) and Peter McKenna (The Last Kingdom, Red Rock) as showrunner/executive producer, writer, and creator, alongside Ciaran Donnelly (Altered Carbon, Vikings) who also serves as executive producer, this hard-hitting drama packs real punch.

In a tale of David versus Goliath, the Kinsellas are out-numbered, out-financed and out-gunned. They find themselves holed up in their Dublin stronghold while their businesses fail, and family members and associates are picked off by one by one... But the Kinsellas have something the cartel does not...the unbreakable family bond and the power of their brood.

Kin is a dark and thrilling tale of gangsters who on the surface appear to live ultimate celebrity lifestyle with a world of power, glamour and riches, but underneath lurks a deadly world of drugs, guns, undercover assassins and murder.

Is blood truly thicker than water in Kin?

Sundance Now, the streaming service from AMC Networks, is available as an Amazon Prime Video Channels add on in the UK.

Exclusive Premiere: Thursday 24th February

Episodes: 8
