As the claustrophobic evening grows increasingly sinister, Will starts to realise the lives of everyone he loves might be in danger...will they make it through the night?

The gathering is also attended by John Carroll Lynch (Fargo, American Horror Story), Michelle Krusiec (Hawaii 5-0), Lindsay Burge (Her Smell, Frances Ha) and Mike Doyle (Jersey Boys, Green Lantern), while long-time collaborators of Kusama's, Phil Hay & Matt Manfredi (The Boys, Clash of the Titans) pen the electric script.

Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound Theatrical Release

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.




Kaleidoscope Digital Release 12 August & DVD 23 September

Garnering critical acclaim on its theatrical release, one of Britain's greatest actors of today Toby Jones 'glows' (The Guardian) as the lead in Kaleidoscope, a bleak, nightmarish psychological thriller written and directed by brother Rupert Jones in his feature film debut.

This intense thriller 'adds a decidedly 21st century bent to Hitchcockian suspense' (Spectrum Culture) and is set to arrive on UK digital platforms on 12 August 2019, followed by its DVD release on 23 September 2019. The cast includes Sinead Matthews (Jellyfish), Cecilia Noble (Danny and the Human Zoo) and a stand out turn from national treasure Anne Reid, MBE (Last Tango in Halifax).




Der Pass DVD and Digital release

TV PHENOMENON The Bridge has inspired numerous remakes across the globe and heralded a new dawn of television. Now from the award-winning makers of hit drama The Dark comes a thrilling new German-Austrian spin that takes the initial premise to the brand-new gripping heights of Der Pass.

When a gruesomely staged, dead body is found in a mountain pass in the Alps near the German-Austrian border, two detectives from either side are brought in to investigate.

Not only are they from two different countries, they are worlds apart in their careers...German detective Ellie (Julia Jentsch) embraces the case as the first real challenge of her profession, while her Austrian counterpart Gedeon (Nicholas Ofczarek) is jaded and seems to have lost any ambition.

They soon discover more crime scenes with symbolically posed victims, which appear reminiscent of pagan rituals. Are they all part of a much bigger, sinister plan? Make the darkly enthralling Der Pass your new favourite ritual.




Double Date On digital, DVD & Blu-ray

After its much lauded theatrical release and fantastic reception on its Fright Fest premiere, the bloody hilarious comedy-horror Double Date - written by and starring Screen International/FrightFest Genre Rising Star 2017 award winner Danny Morgan - is set to arrive on digital, DVD and Blu-ray from Sparky Pictures.

Self-assured, and irritatingly cocksure, one thing Alex (Michael Socha - This is England, Chernobyl) can boast about is his loyalty to his dearest friend, Jim (Danny Morgan - On The Road). As Jim's 30th birthday approaches, Alex promises to help get his best friend laid, so he won't reach this unwelcome milestone a virgin.

They muster up the courage to arrange a double date with sisters Kitty (Kelly Wenham - Dracula: The Dark Prince) and Lulu (Georgia Groome - Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging), but little do the boys know, their partners have other plans for the night ahead...

With appearances from the inimitable Big Narstie (The Big Narstie Show), and renowned actor and director of the moment Dexter Fletcher (Eddie The Eagle, Rocketman), Double Date is fun, ferocious, and full of surprises.




The Fight DVD and digital release

Jessica Hynes packs a punch with her directorial debut The Fight, which she also penned and stars in as struggling wife and mother Tina, who turns to boxing when her family problems and her own demons become too tough to handle. This knockout drama hits DVD and digital on 9 September 2019 courtesy of Pinpoint and Sparky Pictures.

Wowing critics and audiences on its London Film Festival premiere and subsequent theatrical release, this beautifully crafted homegrown drama features an all-star cast including Anita Dobson (Eastenders) and Christopher Fairbank (Guardians of the Galaxy) as Tina's dysfunctional antagonistic mother and browbeaten father, Sally Phillips (Bridget Jones's Diary), a hilarious turn from Alice Lowe (Prevenge) and an appearance from the inimitable Russell Brand (Get Him to the Greek), with standout performances from rising stars, Liv Hill (Three Girls) and Sennia Nanua (The Girl With All The Gifts).

Tina Bell (Hynes - Years and Years, W1A, Spaced) lives in a quiet seaside town, but her life is anything but quiet - her mother is threatening to leave her father, her daughter is being bullied, she and her husband Mick (Shaun Parkes - Lost in Space) are juggling full time jobs, three children and her past is catching up with her. Determined to ditch the dysfunction and beat her inner turmoil, Tina pulls on her fighting gloves, literally - stepping into the boxing ring to sweat out her anxieties and punch up her self-worth, under the watchful eye of her astute coach (Cathy Tyson - Mona Lisa). But does she have what it takes to get her family off the ropes and emerge victorious?
