GANGSTER NO.1 THE FREDDIE FOREMAN STORY is released on DVD 3rd June 2019.
Synopsis: To Britain’s criminal underworld, Freddie Foreman is The Godfather and his name instils more fear than any other. Rightly or wrongly, he has been attached to almost every unsolved gangland murder in London over the last 50 years and remains one of the most iconic and well respected men of his generation.
Born Frederick Foreman in 1932, young Fred was on trial for his first crime at just 16 years of age which paved the way towards a prolific criminal career. He went on to become a notorious crime boss who ruthlessly upheld the underworld code of conduct, whatever it took.
In this documentary special, Foreman talks about how his war-time childhood moulded him into the man he became and reveals the audacious details of the heists, the double crossings, the shootouts, the murders, the betrayals and ultimately, what has made him Gangster No. 1.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN LONDON is released on DVD 10th June 2019.
Synopsis: For the first time ever, the violent reign of two of London’s most notorious gangsters, Jack ‘Spot’ Comer (Terry Stone) andBilly Hill (Leo Gregory), is grippingly brought to the big screen by visionary director Simon Rumley (Red, White & Blue, Crowhurst, Fashionista), in a sweeping saga of madness, mayhem and manipulation reminiscent of British favourites Legend and Peaky Blinders.
ONCE UPON A TIME IN LONDON charts the epic rise and legendary fall of a nationwide criminal empire that lasted for three action-packed decades from the late 1930s. The one-time friends and partners in crime turned bitter enemies oversaw a fledgeling East End and Soho underworld responsible for brutal protection rackets, vicious lawbreaking, shocking corruption and glamorous associations, which paved the way for the notorious Kray twins to exert their dominance over the capital’s gangland realm.
OUTLAWED is released on DVD 10th June 2019.
BOOTS ON THE GROUND is released on DVD 10th June 2019.
BOOTS ON THE GROUND is a second feature for writer/director Louis Melville. It’s about five British soldiers who escape a Taliban ambush in the wilds of Afghanistan as the conflict is about to draw to a close. In the aftermath they are lost in action, but safe at the foot of a forgotten fort. They spot five more soldiers in the near distance entering the building. They shout and they chase but get no answer. In their search of the fort for their unknown colleagues they discover millions of dollars, a gun and ammunition store and something much worse - a malevolent supernatural force. After a relative slow build, that helps us get to know the characters, the scares come thick and fast as the evil, shape-shifting presence warps their sense of reality, time and place.
BOOTS ON THE GROUND is a found footage film on steroids. It’s experimental too. What you see is always via cameras attached to the soldiers heads. There’s a single ten minute long take with the actors travelling more than half a mile over heavy terrain on foot that makes you feel like you’re a soldier on the run too. Your head is dizzy with their excitement. However, jerky images – stock in trade of found footage horror - can become wearing over the duration of the film once the novelty wears off.
Nevertheless, BOOTS ON THE GROUND is an innovative and scary experiment in actors literally shooting each other’s performances. Stuart Wright
A PRIVATE WAR is released on DVD 10th June 2019
Synopsis: In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin (Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike) is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontlines of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless, while constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado. After being hit by a grenade in Sri Lanka, she wears a distinctive eye patch and is still as comfortable sipping martinis with London’s elite as she is confronting dictators. Colvin sacrifices loving relationships, and over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she’s witnessed takes its toll. Yet, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her – along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan) – to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs.
Based on the extraordinary life of Marie Colvin, A PRIVATE WAR is brought to the screen by Academy Award nominee and critically acclaimed documentary filmmaker Matthew Heineman in his pulse-pounding narrative feature debut.
