18 1/2

On the 50th Anniversary of Watergate - one of the biggest political scandals in history that sent shockwaves across the globe and set a new bar for serious constitutional misconduct - a fresh take on the story has been brought to light in 18 1/2. This inventive, fun, and thrilling feature, with twists and turns galore is set for its UK release this Summer from 101 Films.

An enthralling original from award-winning director Dan Mirvish (Bernard and Huey, Between Us) - who has been described as a 'cheerful subversive' (New York Times) and named as one of Variety's Top 50 Creatives to Watch - this slick, smart and thoroughly entertaining caper takes use on a whirlwind ride, set against the backdrop of political corruption, deception and double-dealing.

The year is 1974, and America is up in arms over the Watergate scandal. When loyal White House transcriber Connie Lashley (Willa Fitzgerald - Reacher, Little Women), inadvertently stumbles across the only copy of the infamous 181/2 minute gap in the Nixon tapes, she quickly finds herself completely out of her depth...

Holding the very thing that could prove the momentous conspiracy, she contacts Times reporter Paul Marrow (John Magaro - The Big Short, First Cow) for help, and the unlikely duo dive headfirst into the heart of the scandalous affair and a whole world of trouble.

An engrossing and compelling mystery, with a darkly comic edge, 18 1/2 boasts stunning cinematography and an exceptional cast including Bruce Campbell (Ash vs Evil Dead, Bubba Ho-Tep), Richard Kind (Argo, Inside Out), Vondie Curtis Hall (Romeo and Juliet), Catherine Curtin (Stranger Things), Ted Raimi (Creepshow) and Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men).

Scandalously sharp and staggeringly savvy 18 1/2 is a must-watch movie.




DI Ray

Discover DI Ray, a refreshing and necessary addition to the detective drama genre, that sees the talented and acclaimed Parminder Nagra (13 Reasons Why, ER, Bend It Like Beckham), give an impressive, powerful performance as the titular lead. Created and written by Line of Duty star, and one-to-watch scribe Maya Sondhi (Ackley Bridge, EastEnders) with Jed Mercurio as Exec Producer, this riveting and groundbreaking new series is set to arrive on DVD this July courtesy of Acorn Media International, following its transmission on ITV.

After a heroic arrest brings her to the attention of the decision makers on the force, DI Rachita Ray (Nagra) a British Asian policewoman is promoted to homicide... But her initial excitement on the promotion is quickly quashed by the underlying feeling that she landed the role as a box-ticking exercise, rather than on her merit as a detective.

Assigned to investigate a suspected honour killing of a young Muslim man, she quickly realises the two suspects - brothers from a British Hindu family - aren't guilty. The evidence against them is flimsy at best, but her attempts to convey this to her superiors and colleagues falls on deaf ears.

Hidden biases and a desire to close the case as soon as possible, means no one is listening... that is, until she discovers a much more sinister crime. As Ray uncovers a complex web of deceit within organised crime, she also lays bare deep-seated issues about her own identity - that she has buried for many years - wounds born out of a desperate desire to belong after a lifetime of being made to feel like an outsider.

This Birmingham set crime-drama, features a stellar cast including Gemma Whelan (White House Farm, Gentleman Jack, Game of Thrones) and Jamie Bamber (Marcella, The Smoke, Law & Order UK), the four-part series is directed by Bridgerton's Alex Pillai and produced by Code 404's Charlotte Surtees, and arrives on DVD and digital 4 July 2022.

The film boasts stand-out performances from an impressive cast including Wu-Tang Clan's RZA, Glenn Fleshler (Joker, Billions), Mykelti Williamson (Forrest Gump, Fences), Richie Merritt (White Boy Rick) and rising star Chandler DuPont (Charm City Kings) and is set to a brilliant soundtrack.

Brody takes the lead as a trashman who is tormented by his violent and criminal past and is hell-bent on making amends. Haunted by personal tragedy he is determined to find redemption by helping those around him.

He dedicates his life to his broken community, and the safety of young girl who reminds him of his daughter. When her life is put in danger, it reignites the darkness and brutality he has worked so hard to leave behind.

In his attempts to save the girl, can he save himself and at what cost?

The Terror Infamy and The Terror Series One and Two Box set

Lauded series The Terror garnered international acclaim from critics and viewers alike and now with a brand-new premise and setting but with the same stunning production values and gripping story lines, the second series The Terror: Infamy is set to hit our screens. Following its run on BBC2, the series is set for its Blu-ray, DVD, and digital release from Acorn Media International on 23 May 2022. The Terror One and Two Box set will also be available on Blu-ray and DVD.

Boasting powerful performances from an outstanding cast of international talent The Terror:Infamy is a thrilling supernatural series set against the backdrop of World War II and the Japanese internment camps.

Chester (Derek Mio - Grey's Anatomy, Geek) lives with his family on Terminal Island, a few miles south of Los Angeles, just off the coast of California. He and his father, Henry (Shingo Usami - Unbroken, Riceballs), are fishermen but Chester seeks more. He's in love with a Spanish-American student named Luz Ojeda (Cristina Rodlo - Miss Bala, Too Old to Die Young) and doesn't understand why his immigrant mother, Asako (Naoko Mori - Torchwood, Absolutely Fabulous) and father choose to remain confined to a small swath of the big world - especially after travelling so far in the pursuit of freedom.

In the aftermath of Pearl Harbour, the family's comfortable life is about to change forever as they're forcibly uprooted and shipped off to an internment camp, where fear lurks in both supernatural and human form.

A string of relentless, brutal and bizarre deaths haunts the community, and Chester and his family are menaced by a mysterious and murderous shapeshifting entity. What spirit lies behind The Terror, and can the family overcome it and save those dearest to them?
