Swedes in space
Arrow Films is proud to celebrate the UK Premiere of the critically acclaimed Swedish Sci-fi film ANIARA at Edinburgh International Film Festival on 20th June with it being released from 30th August in UK cinemas and on digital platforms including iTunes, Sky Store and Amazon.
Based on a concept by Nobel prize-winner Harry Martinson, ANIARA is the story of one of the many spaceships used for transporting Earth's fleeing population to their new home-planet Mars. But just as the ship leaves the destroyed Earth, she collides with space junk and is thrown off her course. The passengers slowly realize that they'll never be able to return.
The Swedish Nobel Prize winner Harry Martinson wrote ANIARA as a poem in 1956 affected by the Cold War and the test detonations of the Hydrogen Bomb. Translated into different languages and developed into opera and stage productions, this is the first film adaptation.
Described as visionary, visually stunning and thought provoking, ANIARA is written and directed by Pella Kågerman (The Swedish Supporter, Stormakstiden) and Hugo Lilja (The Unliving, The Swedish Supporter), produced by award winning Annika Rogell (The Black Power Mixtape, Concerning Violence, My Skinny Sister) and Executive Produced by Meta Louise Foldager Sørensen (Antichrist, Melancholia, The Wife). It stars Emelie Jonsson, Arvin Kananian, Bianca Cruzeiro, Anneli Martini, Jennie Silfverhjelm, Peter Carlberg and Emma Broomé.

Eureka Entertainment to release THE INCIDENT, the raw and intense 1967 New York thriller featuring Martin Sheen, Tony Musante and an ensemble cast, making its WORLDWIDE DEBUT on Blu-ray in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition as part of the Eureka Classics range from 12 August 2019.
A riveting urban tension thriller, and a fantastic snapshot of 1967 New York City in all its seedy, black-and-white glory, The Incident also features an iconic 60s cast that must be seen to be believed. Martin Sheen makes his feature film debut as one of two small-time hoods - the other is Tony Musante (The Bird with the Crystal Plumage) in one of his earliest roles - terrorising a subway car full of trapped passengers, portrayed by an ensemble cast including Thelma Ritter (Rear Window), Beau Bridges (The Fabulous Baker Boys), Ed McMahon, Donna Mills (Play Misty for Me), Jack Gilford (Save the Tiger), Brock Peters (To Kill a Mockingbird), Ruby Dee (A Raisin in the Sun), and a host of other instantly recognisable faces from NYC films and television of the era.
After mugging an old man for a few dollars, thugs Artie (Sheen) and Joe (Musante) hop a subway deep in the Bronx, and proceed to threaten and intimidate the Sunday night commuters all the way to Times Square. The terrified riders are a mixed group - an elderly Jewish couple, a family trying to protect their 5-year-old daughter, an alcoholic, two teens on a date, two military Privates, a bigoted African-American man and his wife, etc. - but they are united by their fear and sense of helplessness as switchblade-wielding Joe and Artie block the subway doors from opening at stops, and prevent the riders from leaving. Will any of them have the courage to confront the two maniacs?
A high-velocity "home invasion"-styled hostage drama on rails, The Incident is a NYC transit suspense film that precedes the better-known The Taking of Pelham One Two Three by seven years. When director Larry Peerce (Goodbye, Columbus) and cinematographer Gerald Hirschfeld (Young Frankenstein) were denied permission to shoot in the NYC subways, they did it anyway, using concealed cameras for some footage, providing a gritty time capsule of the 60s Big Apple as it begins to rot.
When there is an assassination attempt on U.S. President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman), his trusted confidant, Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler), is wrongfully accused and taken into custody. After escaping from capture, he becomes a man on the run and must evade his own agency and outsmart the FBI in order to find the real threat to the President. Desperate to uncover the truth, Banning turns to unlikely allies to help clear his name, keep his family from harm and save the country from imminent danger.
ANGEL HAS FALLEN coming to UK cinemas from Lionsgate UK, 21st August 2019. Check out the international trailer at the link above.
