Filmworker DVD

Following its critically acclaimed theatrical release, Filmworker - the remarkable story of Leon Vitali, the up-and-coming actor who gave up fame and fortune to serve for decades as legendary director Stanley Kubrick's right-hand man - is set for its DVD debut on 23 July 2018 from Dogwoof.

Filmworker is a compelling documentary charting Vitali's work with the maestro and their unique relationship and arrives on DVD 2 July 2018 and is available now on demand from Dogwoof.

As a long-time admirer of Stanley Kubrick's work, it was Vitali's dream come true when he landed the role of 'Lord Bullingdon' in Barry Lyndon. His performance was highly acclaimed and a wealth of prestigious film, television and stage offers flooded on, but they weren't to be. Having become enthralled by the director's all-encompassing process of creation, the actor sacrificed his flourishing career to take on the humble role of assistant to the master filmmaker. For more than two decades, he played a crucial role behind-the-scenes helping Kubrick make and maintain his seminal body of work.

Romper Stomper TV Series

A quarter of a century ago, a film about skinhead racists running amok in Australia exploded around the world in an orgy of violence, shocking audiences with its realistic take on neo-Nazi culture and making a star of its young lead, Russell Crowe. Now, with nationalism and racism on the rise around the globe, Romper Stomper is set to return for its sequel, this time as a powerful and daring TV series, with a distinctly modern take.

Generating both critical acclaim and controversy across the globe, Romper Stomper arrives as a compelling six-part series. Following its run on BBC Three, it makes its DVD bow on 18 June 2018 courtesy of Acorn Media International.




Xtro: Limited Edition Box Set

Part E.T., part Alien, British horror classic Xtro is one of the strangest, most shocking exploitation flicks to land on earth during the video nasty heyday. A film that narrowly avoided inclusion and prosecution on the original nasties list, threw in buckets of blood and gore and some of the most outlandish plot twists of the VHS era to create a truly memorable horror classic. Now it makes its arrival for the first time on Blu-ray courtesy of Second Sight Films as Xtro: Limited Edition Box Set.

Loved by horror fans, reviled by highbrow critics on its original release and one of the most notorious homegrown films of its time, Xtro lands on 18 June 2018 in a newly restored version complete with a raft of new extras, including an hour-long documentary charting the film's history and its impact, alongside its original alternate ending too.
