They got everything here from a diddled-eyed Joe to damned if I know!
Directed by award-winning filmmaker Andrew Bujalski, Kaleidoscope Entertainment is pleased to announce the UK cinema and digital release of RESULTS on 29th May 2015.
Recently divorced, newly rich, and utterly miserable, Danny (Kevin Corrigan, Superbad, Pineapple Express) is bored and lonely. Determined to mix up his lifestyle rut, he joins a local gym meeting self-styled fitness guru Trevor (Guy Pearce, Iron Man 3, Prometheus, The Hurt Locker) and the sharp, irresistible trainer Kat (Cobie Smulders, Avengers: Age of Ultron, How I Met Your Mother). Soon, their three lives become intricately knotted, both professionally and personally.
Home entertainment and independent film distributor Network Distributing launched 'The British Film' range in April 2013 as an ongoing project to release several hundred vintage British films – with many unseen for decades. Network applies the same criteria and ethic to 'The British Film' as it has to its award-winning British television releases – this approach allows the release of many rare and forgotten films, hidden treasures of cultural heritage many of which were never widely shown in the cinema. By including these rarities alongside more popular titles, Network continues to redress the balance of appreciation for British film as a whole – making these films available in the best possible quality on DVD and Blu-ray for a new generation of viewers.
The range went live with the first of a series of The Ealing Studios Rarities and now into its third year, 'The British Film' has released over 200 films including BAFTA-winning The Ipcress File, Ken Russell’s French Dressing, The House in Nightmare Park, Powell and Pressburger's Black Narcissus and the iconic animated feature Animal Farm, amongst other significant British films.
Forthcoming titles from 'The British Film' collection include Hitchcock's Sabotage in HD, the continuation of The Jessie Matthews Revue series starring Britain's best-loved musical film star from the 1930s, and crime drama Robbery from director Peter Yates starring Stanley Baker.
20th Century Fox is excited to debut the highly anticipated FIRST trailer for the upcoming film, MAZE RUNNER: THE SCORCH TRIALS! Check out the trailer at the link above and get ready for the action-packed adventure to hit theaters on September 18, 2015.
In this next chapter of the epic “Maze Runner” saga, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fellow Gladers face their greatest challenge yet: searching for clues about the mysterious and powerful organization known as WCKD. Their journey takes them to the Scorch, a desolate landscape filled with unimaginable obstacles. Teaming up with resistance fighters, the Gladers take on WCKD’s vastly superior forces and uncover its shocking plans for them all.

Brush up your Shakespeare
Ahead of the film’s World Premiere screening in The Cannes Film Festival competition this weekend STUDIOCANAL announce an October 2nd UK opening date for MACBETH.
Directed by Justin Kurzel (SNOWTOWN) and starring Academy-Award® nominee Michael Fassbender (12 YEARS A SLAVE) and Academy-Award® winner Marion Cotillard (LA VIE EN ROSE) with a stellar supporting cast which boasts Paddy Considine (THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM), David Thewlis (the HARRY POTTER series), Sean Harris (PROMETHEUS), Jack Reynor (WHAT RICHARD DID) and Elizabeth Debicki (THE GREAT GATSBY).
Shot on location in Scotland and England, MACBETH tells the story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader brought low by ambition and desire. A thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times and a truthful reimagining of what wartime must have really been like for one of Shakespeare’s most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition set in war torn Scotland.
BRITISH cinema legend Kenneth More (Scrooge, Sink the Bismarck!) heads an outstanding comedy cast in this brilliantly engaging adaption of a story by Oscar-nominated screenwriter and novelist Paul Gallico (The Pride Of The Yankees). Filmed extensively on the Queen Elizabeth – then the largest liner in the world – Next To No Time (U) is released on DVD on 1 June 2015, RRP £9.99, courtesy of Network’s ‘The British Film’ collection.
David Webb, a brilliant backroom boffin who is cripplingly shy and nervous in unfamiliar situations, has an ingenious scheme for converting his employer’s factory to automation. The project, however, requires more capital than the firm can provide, and to his horror Webb finds himself thrust aboard the liner Queen Elizabeth and heading inexorably to America, where he is expected to track down a famous industrialist and persuade him to finance the scheme.
Mundruczo's courageous, trail-blazing blend of horror, thriller and riveting socially conscious drama is a cautionary tale between a superior species and its disgraced inferior. Favouring pedigree dogs, a new regulation puts a severe tax on mixed breeds. Owners dump their dogs and shelters become overcrowded. 13-year-old Lili fights desperately to protect her pet Hagen, but her father eventually sets the dog free on the streets.
Hagen and his pretty master search desperately for each other until Lili loses faith. Struggling to survive, homeless Hagen realizes that not everyone is a dog’s best friend. Hagen joins a gang of stray dogs, but is soon captured and sent to the pound. With little hope inside there, the dogs will seize an opportunity to escape and revolt against mankind. Their revenge will be merciless. Lili may be the only one who can halt this unexpected war between man and dog.
Release date 3rd August 2015.

From BAFTA award-winning director Asif Kapadia (Senna), AMY tells the incredible story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse - in her own words.
Featuring extensive unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few can.
A once-in-a-generation talent and a pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense, Amy wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyse her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most original and adored songs of the modern era.
Her huge success, however, resulted in relentless and invasive media attention which coupled with Amy’s troubled relationships and precarious lifestyle saw her life tragically begin to unravel.
Amy Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 at the age of 27. See the trailer above.
