Year of the Rabbit DVD and Digital Release

Fresh from the success of What We Do In The Shadows, Matt Berry makes a welcome return to our screens in Year of the Rabbit, a brand new original comedy for Channel 4 set in Victorian London. It's set to arrive on DVD and digitally to download this summer, following its TV bow, thanks to Acorn Media International.

This hilarious six-part series is set to turn the detective genre on its head with a brand new crime fighting trio, that sees Matt Berry's (Toast of London, The IT Crowd), Detective Inspector Rabbit, teaming up with Freddie Fox (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Cucumber) and Susan Wokoma (Chewing Gum, Crazyhead). They are joined by a stellar line-up of great British acting talent including Line of Duty favourites Keeley Hawes (The Durrells, Bodyguard) and Craig Parkinson (Misfits, Four Lions), plus Sally Phillips (Smack The Pony, Miranda), Jill Halfpenny (Three Girls, In the Club), Alun Armstrong (The Cane, Frontier) and Paul Kaye (Wanderlust, Afterlife).

Detective Inspector Rabbit is a hardened booze-hound who's seen it all, his new partner is hapless and by-the-book...when they're called in to investigate a local murder, they are joined by the lewd, but insightful adoptive daughter of the chief of police, she's also the country's first female officer. Together, the mismatched team must fight crime while rubbing shoulders with street gangs, crooked politicians, Bulgarian princes, spiritualists, music hall stars and the Elephant Man.




Romance Blu-ray

Controversial. Groundbreaking. Daring. Extraordinary. Explicit. Shocking. Romance, directed by Catherine Breillat, is all this and more. And now one of the most provocative films of modern cinema is coming to UK Blu-ray for the first time in a newly restored version, courtesy of Second Sight.

A teacher, Marie (Caroline Ducey) is happy living with her boyfriend, but their relationship lacks intimacy and, desperate for physical affection, she sets off to find it elsewhere, in a series of ever-more extreme encounters with strangers...

The film, originally released in 1999, drew as many shocked gasps from critics as it did plaudits when it first opened. It also troubled censors in the UK and around the world as it blurred the lines between art and pornography with its searingly honest depiction of a woman embarking on a series of increasingly explicit sexual experiences.




When A Stranger Calls/ When A Stranger Calls Back: Standard Edition

Following its highly acclaimed Limited-Edition release in 2018 When A Stranger Calls/When A Stranger Calls Back is set for its Standard Edition Blu-ray release complete with a slew of fantastic special features from Second Sight Films this summer.

With the pivotal line "Have you checked the children?" the seminal slasher, that sees a babysitter terrorised by a psychopathic killer, struck fear into the hearts of a generation of filmgoers. Now this terrifying movie, directed by Fred Walton (The Rosary Murders) and starring Carol Kane (The Princess Bride) and Charles Durning (Dog Day Afternoon), is set to arrive on Blu-ray alongside its rarely seen sequel When A Stranger Calls Back in HD on 1 July 2019. The set features the film in a new scan and restoration, plus the film The Sitter, reversible sleeve with new artwork and original poster artwork and much more.

When A Stranger Calls sees an urban legend made flesh, as student babysitter Jill Johnson is looking after a family's children when she receives the first in a series of mysterious and increasingly scary phone calls from a stranger. Police trace the call and discover it's coming from inside the house, sparking a desperate chase and a shocking and grisly discovery.




Inspector Montalbano Collection 9 and Complete Series 1 - 9 DVD Box Set

Our favourite Sicilian detective Inspector Montalbano returns for his ninth and final enthralling series of intrigue, drama and fine food, set against a stunning sun-drenched backdrop.

The final series of the hugely popular, long-running drama will be served up on DVD as Inspector Montalbano Collection 9 courtesy of Acorn Media International, following its run on BBC4. The Complete Series 1 - 9 Box Set will also be released for your summer viewing pleasure.

Based on Andrea Camilleri's bestselling books, the show is a TV ratings hit and stars Luca Zingaretti as the eponymous much-loved icon of contemporary detective drama. The series has all of the thrills of Scandi-noir, but with fine food, Sicilian culture and the warmth of the Mediterranean sun.

Salvo Montalbano is a sharp, unconventional detective who must fight to succeed within Italy's precarious justice system, alongside his trusted colleagues. The final two feature length delights find him amidst a refugee crisis, tying up some murderous loose ends and tackling a triple blast from the past.




London Kills Digital and DVD

From the creator of Suspects comes gritty, gripping new police drama London Kills. London's best detectives take on its worst crimes in this slick and thrilling mystery series which sees the world's most exciting city as the backdrop for a string of killings - all investigated by an elite murder squad. This Acorn TV original is set to arrive on DVD and digital on 1 July 2019 from Acorn Media International, following its run on BBC One. Hugo Speer (The Full Monty, Britannia) stars as the brooding head of department DI David Bradford, who returns to work after three months compassionate leave, after the disappearance of his wife. Tensions arise as he clashes with the ambitious DS Vivienne Cole (Sharon Small - The Inspector Lynley Mysteries, Trust Me) who has been running the murder squad in his absence. The crack team includes seasoned detective DC Rob Brady (Bailey Patrick - Bodyguard, Eastenders) and big-hearted trainee TDC Billie Fitzgerald (Tori Allen-Martin - Unforgotten, Pure), whose inexperience may get her into trouble.




La Ronde Blu-ray & DVD

Praised by directors, critics and cinephiles alike, master of cinema Max Ophuls' masterpiece La Ronde (1950) is set for a newly restored release in high-definition, as Bluebell Films announces its arrival on Blu-ray and DVD this June.

Winning the BAFTA Best Film award and earning double Oscar nominations La Ronde's scene-setting opening has been described as 'one of the marvels of cinema' (The Observer) and has garnered huge acclaim across the globe.

The film is one of the most lauded adaptations of Arthur Schnitzler's (Eyes Wide Shut) renowned play and stars some of France's most respected actors including Anton Walbrook (The Red Shoes, The Life and Death of Colonal Blimp); Simone Signoret (Les Diaboliques, Room at the Top); Serge Reggiani (The Leopard, The Lovers of Verona); Simone Simon (Cat People, La Bete Humane) and Daniel Gelin (The Man Who Knew too Much, Napoleon).




Warren Series One

TV favourite Martin Clunes returns to our screens as another man behaving badly: Warren, a hilariously pedantic driving instructor who thinks the world is against him, in prime time sitcom currently airing on BBC One and coming to DVD and digital courtesy of Acorn Media International.

Created and written by upcoming British writing team Jimmy Donny Cosgrove and Paul McKenna (no, not that one), this original six part comedy drama centres around Warren Thompson, who suddenly finds himself in his mid-50s, forced to up sticks from the south to Preston when his partner Anne's (Lisa Millett - Robin Hood, Peterloo) father falls ill. Not blessed with patience, empathy, or any kind of paternal instinct whatsoever, cantankerous, blunt and grumpy, he just about tolerates his students, not to mention the two teenage stepsons he never wanted.

To put it delicately, Warren's naturally difficult personality means he's constantly finding himself in sticky situations. Set in his ways, he's happy with a clean house, a neat garden, and a nice cup of tea...but always seems to end up on the verge of absolutely losing it. From neighbourly disputes to vendettas in both his personal and professional life, this uniquely British, crabby comedy hero will have you clutching your sides and clutching your pearls in equal measure.

So stick on your L plates and get ready for a bumpy ride.




Chimerica DVD and Digital

Earning plaudits galore and described as an 'electrifying thriller' by The Guardian, Olivier award-winning playwright Lucy Kirkwood's stage play Chimerica is set for the small screen treatment, as a powerful and timely four-part series. Airing on Channel 4 this Spring, this unique drama is set to arrive on DVD and digital from Acorn Media International.

Adapted by Kirkwood for TV, this fictional story about true events has been brought up to date using the notorious 2016 US Presidential election as a back drop. It explores the murky borders between fact and fiction, truth and censorship, political manipulation and personal sacrifice.

Award-winning actor Alessandro Nivola (American Hustle, Disobedience) stars as Lee Berger, the photographer behind the seminal Tank Man of Tiananmen Square photo, captured during the deadly 1989 protests in China. Now working as a dedicated photojournalist in America, accusations of fake news are levelled against him, and he sets out to reclaim his credibility by searching for the subject of his most famous picture.

Joining Lee on his frantic search are seasoned reporter Mel Kincaid (Cherry Jones - Transparent, The Handmaid's Tale), corporate market researcher Tess Kendrick (Sophie Okonedo - Hotel Rwanda, The Hollow Crown) and cynical newspaper boss Frank Sams (F. Murray Abraham - Homeland, The Grand Budapest Hotel). Lee also enlists the help of an old friend, Chinese activist Zhang Lin (Terry Chen - Jessica Jones, Birth of the Dragon), who has troubles of his own. Can he uncover the elusive truth before it is too late?
