'Hotly anticipated, spine-tingling' BBC crime drama Dublin Murders comes to DVD and digital 18 November 2019

Adapted from leading crime novelist Tana French's internationally bestselling books, Dublin Murders is a darkly enthralling new drama, set to grip audiences when it airs on BBC One and arrives on DVD and digital this winter from Acorn Media International.

Screenwriter extraordinaire Sarah Phelps (The ABC Murders, Great Expectations), brilliantly blends the first two novels in the Dublin Murder Squad series, starring a stellar line up of acting talent including Killian Scott (Strike, Ripper Street), Sarah Greene (Penny Dreadful, Rebellion), Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (Avengers: Endgame, Peaky Blinders), Moe Dunford (Vikings, Patrick's Day) and Conleth Hill (Game of Thrones, Suits).

Summer 2006, at the height of the Celtic Tiger financial boom...two driven detectives Rob Reilly (Scott) and Cassie Maddox (Greene), are called in to investigate a child's murder in Knocknaree, Dublin, but there's more to this disturbing case than meets the eye. On an altar in the middle of an archaeological site lies the body of a local teenage girl, a talented young ballet dancer, Katy Devlin, 13.

This is the not the first loss to blight the community...21 years earlier, in a very different Ireland, three children went missing. Only one came back alive and the crime was never solved...could this horrendous new crime be connected?

'Gritty, off-kilter...Absorbing, unsettling and fresh addition to the genre'

The Times

'Hotly anticipated...compulsory crime viewing...guaranteed to leave your spine tingling'


'Murky shades of True Detective...a brooding and quietly intense psychological thriller and a perfect accompaniment to the darkening nights'

The Guardian

Go on a journey of self-discovery with Into The Mirror, coming to limited cinemas and digital 22 November 2019

Rising star Jamie Bacon writes, alongside producer Charles Streeter and stars as the lead in the award-winning feature debut Into the Mirror. This original, exciting and powerful drama is helmed by one to watch, first time director Lois Stevenson with Richard E. Grant as associate producer. It takes us on a breathtaking journey of a young man's fight to find his identity and way in the world.

This fresh take on discovering who you really are, has been wowing audiences on its US release, at festivals across Europe and has won awards including Best Film at The Netherlands' New Vision Film Festival, and Best Actor for Jamie Bacon at the New Renaissance Film Festival, Amsterdam. The film is now set to premiere in the UK on 22 November 2019.

Featuring an incredible original soundtrack from lauded musician, producer and visual artist Johnny Jewel (Drive, Twin Peaks: The Return), we follow Daniel (Bacon - Brighton, White Lines), a sensitive young man who has recently moved to London and discovers a whole new world at the Lost & Found club.

'Outrageously beautiful, calling to mind Brian DePalma's neon-noir by way of Kenneth Anger and David incredibly impressive debut feature'


Film Nation

'Gloriously silly' Roman comedy Plebs returns for a fifth series on ITV2 and comes to DVD & digital 2 December

WHEN IN Rome, de de as the Romans do! Here come the Romans in the hilarious comedy Plebs, which returns for its fifth series on ITV2 before marching on to DVD alongside Plebs Series 1 - 5 DVD Box Set on 2 December 2019 courtesy of Acorn Media International.

Plebs follows the lives of three hapless young men from the suburbs as they try to get laid, hold down jobs and climb the social ladder in the big city.....of Rome in 23BC. Penned by Sam Leifer (How Not to Live Your Life) and Tom Basden (Fresh Meat) and starring Tom Rosenthal (Friday Night Dinner), Ryan Sampson (Brassic) and Jonathan Pointing (London Kills) alongside a stellar cast and inspired guest stars.

Series five sees Amanda Holden (Wild at Heart) feature as lusty aristocrat Rufina who takes a liking to Jason (Pointing) when he gate-crashes a banquet...and he doesn't seem to mind too much. Marcus (Rosenthal), Aurelius the water-boy (Basden) and lazy slave Grumio (Sampson) are still trying to turn the Crown and Toga into the trendiest nightspot in the city, even if it means getting in with a rowdy bunch of sports hooligans including Leo Gregory (Green Street Hooligans).

Developing schemes and side-hustles aplenty, the gang are joined on their adventures by Emilia Fox (Delicious) who guest stars as a detective and Tony Robinson (Blackadder Goes Forth) who, of course, plays an archaeologist. Returning characters include series favourites Landlady (Maureen Lipman - Coronation Street), Landlord (Karl Theobald - GameFace), Sylvia (Samantha Spiro - Sex Education) and Lepidus (Danny Webb - Humans).

With Marcus wooing Gloria (Ellie Taylor - The Mash Report) who runs the laundrette next door, Jason and Aurelius trying their luck at a male escort agency, and Grumio inventing the first hands-free parasol: The Grumbrella, you know you're in for a right Roman riot.

'Sharply written, funny and filthy...a comedy gem that the Emperor himself would be proud of'

Spielberg, Lynch, Lucas and their Sound Designers feature in Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound, In cinemas 1 November and on DVD 25 November 2019

From the first words uttered in pioneering film The Jazz Singer - "Wait a minute, wait a minute I tell yer, you ain't seen nothing yet!" - to the early sound years of cinema including All Quiet on the Western Front, King Kong and Singing In The Rain, to groundbreaking blockbusters such as Apocalypse Now, Star Wars, Top Gun and Jurassic Park, sound and sound design are an integral part of films and film history. Sound design makes a film, but, if done properly, most viewers won't even realise how a film's narrative and themes are being advanced. Now a new feature documentary puts sound in the spotlight and makes a noise about the sound effects that set the heart racing.

Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound reveals the hidden power of sound in cinema and is set to arrive in UK cinemas courtesy of Dogwoof. Through film clips, interviews and verite footage, the film captures the history, impact and creative process of this often overlooked art form, through the insights and stories of film legends including George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, David Lynch, Barbra Streisand, Ang Lee, Christopher Nolan, Sofia Coppola and Ryan Coogler and their sound design collaborators.

Coppola and Lucas have both declared that "sound is 50 per cent of the movie" with Spielberg saying "our ears lead our eyes to where the story lives." In Making Waves, we see and hear from the key players of sound design - including multi-Oscar winners Walter Murch (Apocalypse Now), Ben Burtt (Star Wars) and Gary Rydstrom (Saving Private Ryan) - who, in pursuing their art and desire to push the medium, are the very people who will go down in the history of cinema for developing sound into the immersive storytelling force it is today.

Lend us you ears and open your eyes for an epic journey into sound and its impact on our film experience and our lives.

'Fascinating and informative, it's a must-watch'

Screen International

'Will inspire viewers to seek out their favourite films and experience them with fresh ears'

Hollywood Reporter

'You'll likely never hear a film in the same way again after watching this thrilling celebration of the craft'
