'Batshit crazy' Sky Original Britannia Series II and the Series I & II Box Set come to DVD and digital 10 February 2020 from Acorn Media

Ruthless Romans, drugged-up Druids and capricious Celts...welcome to Britannia. Olivier award-winning playwright Jez Butterworth (The Ferryman) pens this rich historical series that blends fact and fantasy to create a fever-dream drama. Recently returning for its second series on Sky Atlantic, Britannia Series II comes to DVD and digital from Acorn Media International on 10 February 2020 alongside a Series I & II Box Set.

43AD, Roman General Aulus Plautius (David Morrissey - The Missing) arrives in Britannia, determined to conquer it where Julius Caesar lost to the Druids 90 years earlier. He leverages rivalries between Celtic tribes led by Queen Antedia (Zoe Wanamaker - Harry Potter), and the aging King Pellenor (Ian McDiarmid - Star Wars).

High Druid Veran (Mackenzie Crook - Detectorists) summons spirits with gruesome rituals to achieve his own ends, while chosen child Cait (Eleanor Worthington-Cox - Gwen) seeks to fulfil a prophecy to oust the Romans with the help of demon-possessed madman Divis (Nikolaj Lie Kaas - The Killing).

Who will rule Britannia?

'So radical it must be revered...a grinning Mardi Gras of gnarled mysticism, gamey dialogue and ultra-gore, with a bubbly sitcom undercurrent'

Chilling Amicus anthologies Asylum and The House That Dripped Blood arrive on Standard Edition Blu-ray from Second Sight Films 6 January 2020

From Psycho writer Robert Bloch come these two classic Amicus anthology horrors: Asylum directed by Roy Ward Baker (A Night to Remember), and The House that Dripped Blood, from Peter Duffell in his directorial debut. After a Limited Edition Blu-ray release earlier this year, now these star-studded treats arrive on Standard Edition Blu-rays on 6 January 2020 from Second Sight.

Asylum follows Doctor Martin (Robert Powell - The Italian Job, The Thirty Nine Steps) as he arrives for a job interview at a secluded asylum for the incurably insane. He must prove himself by listening to the macabre tales of four inmates to determine which is the former head of the asylum who experienced a breakdown. We join him on the investigation of four hair-raising horrors...

The House that Dripped Blood follows Scotland Yard's Inspector Holloway (John Bennett - Watership Down, The Fifth Element) investigates a mysterious mansion with a ghoulish history and a chilling fate for its occupants in these four tales of terror...




Thrilling German apocalyptic drama 8 Days comes to DVD & digital 6 January 2020 after its run on Sky Atlantic

What would you do if you only had 8 Days left to live? A meteorite is on a collision course with Earth. The chances to survive in Central Europe: Zero.

This colossally ambitious German series explores the answer to this impossible question through the eyes of an ordinary Berlin family living through the last days of mankind as we know it. Airing on Sky Atlantic this winter, the series arrives on DVD and digital early 2020 from Acorn Media International.

Each episode of this eight parter brings us one day closer to annihilation. The impending catastrophe sets in motion the reorganisation of society as we know it, and the world rapidly sinks into a huge, panicky, chaotic party. Suddenly people can break the speed limit at will, have wild unprotected sex, do all the drugs they want, shop with no money, live without working, love with no consequences - but in the end, the only thing that matters is: What is really important to you in your final days and hours?

Prepare for the end of life as you know it in... 8 Days.

'A Walking Dead pall hangs over the survivalist intrigue...complete with unexpected violence and striking apocalyptic imagery'

Sunday Times Culture

'Tense, gripping stuff with a neat allegorical twist'
