The Invitation Blu-ray release

From acclaimed director Karyn Kusama (Girl Fight, Jennifer's Body, Destroyer) comes taut psychological thriller The Invitation, which premiered to great acclaim at London Film Festival and now gets a Blu-ray release from Second Sight on 4 November 2019.

Reluctantly accepting a dinner party invitation from his ex-wife Eden (Tammy Blanchard - Into the Woods) at the house they once shared, Will (Logan Marshall-Green - Spider-Man: Homecoming, Prometheus) and his new partner Kira (Emayatzy Corinealdi - Roots, Ballers) gather with old friends to toast new beginnings.

But Will and his ex-wife share a tragic past, and as paranoia mounts and tensions build, he begins to wonder what is real and what is imagined. 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.

Get your RSVPs in now for The Invitation, but be warned: it'll be a night to remember until the day you die...




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.




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).




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?




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.




Keeping Faith Series 2 and Series 1&2 Box Set

Following the runaway success of the first series last year, the critically acclaimed Welsh drama Keeping Faith, starring Eve Myles as the eponymous lead, returns for its second enthralling eight-part series.

Originally airing on BBC Wales, series one was the most popular show on the channel in more than 25 years, as well as the most downloaded non-network show on BBC iPlayer since records began and boasted a large audience on BBC One.

Keeping Faith Series Two arrives on BBC One this July, followed by its digital release on 28 August and DVD release on 2 September 2019 from Acorn Media International. The full engrossing Keeping Faith Series One & Two Box Set will also be available on the same date.




Memory: The Origins of Alien Theatrical Release

The iconic scenes and sequences from seminal sci-fi horror ALIEN are firmly embedded in film history and popular culture: the creepy eggs and HR Giger designed spacecraft on a long dead planet; the pivotal facehugger attaching itself to one of the crew of the Nostromo; the shocking chest-bursting sequence and much, much more...

But while we may all now know that "in space, no-one can hear you scream", how did Ridley Scott and the creative team come up with the ideas for a blockbuster that changed both the horror and sci-fi genres and truly terrified audiences around the world?

As we approach the 40th Anniversary of the game-changing film a fascinating feature documentary MEMORY: THE ORIGINS OF ALIEN, from writer/director Alexandre O. Philippe (78/52: Hitchcock's Shower Scene), uncovers the origin story behind Scott's cinematic masterpiece, which arrives in cinemas on 30 August 2019 followed by DVD and on demand on 2 September from Dogwoof.




Blue Blu-ray release

Half of all marine life has been lost in the last 40 years. By 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish.

A powerful feature documentary Blue, from renowned filmmaker Karina Holden (Magical Land Of Oz), takes us on a provocative journey into the ocean realm, to witness a critical moment in time...when the marine world is on a precipice.

Following its theatrical run, and DVD & digital releases earlier this year, the film is now set for its UK Blu-ray release on 26 August from Sparky Pictures.

Blue presents a fascinating and important story that needs to be told. We journey across the seas and into the world of passionate advocates for ocean preservation, where the story of our changing oceans is unfolding. Our inspirational guides, Lucas Handley, Madison Stewart, Philip Mango, Dr Jennifer Lavers, Tim Silverwood, Mark Dia and Valerie Taylor, have one common aim, to be guardians of the ocean and inspire others to join their work to protect the world we live in. They are defending habitats, campaigning for smarter fishing, combating marine pollution and fighting for the protection of keystone species.
