Shakespeare’s classic play about the Machiavellian rise to power and subsequent short reign of King Richard III of England is updated to an alternative 1930s setting in this celebrated film adaptation. A brutal civil war has erupted in England with the Houses of Lancaster and York battling for control of the throne. Amid the turmoil the despotic Richard, Duke of Gloucester (Ian McKellen) plots his own route to power, deviously scheming a murderous agenda that will lead to his installation as dictator monarch. Steeped in fascist iconography, the film openly draws from the aesthetic of the Third Reich, a stylistic choice that emphasizes the pure evil at the heart of Richard’s agenda. Based on an acclaimed stage production for the Royal National Theatre (which also starred McKellen), this exhilarating adaptation features an all-star cast which also includes Kristin Scott Thomas, Robert Downey Jr and Dame Maggie Smith. Cast and Crew: Director: Richard Loncraine (Band of Brothers, Wimbledon) Cast: Ian McKellen (Lord of the Rings, X-Men, Gods and Monsters) Annette Bening (American Beauty, Mars Attacks), Jim Broadbent (Bridget Jones, Harry Potter), Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient), Maggie Smith (Downtown Abbey, Harry Potter), Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man), Dominic West (The Wire). Awards and Reviews: Nominated for two Oscars and one Golden Globe. Won BAFTA for Best Production Design and Best Costume Design. BAFTA nominations for Ian McKellen (Best Actor), Best Screenplay, and Best British Film Won Silver Berlin Bear for Best Director.

Richard Bradford found great critical acclaim for his sensitive and realistic portrayal of McGill, the discredited ex-CIA agent reduced to working for hire as a private investigator. A perfectionist and Method Actor, he quickly came into conflict with some of the crew and his fellow actors - gaining a reputation of being awkward to work with. Interviewed in the summer of 2004, he candidly talked about his time working on Man in a Suitcase and the problems he encountered while trying to make what is, for some, the finest of ITC’s action/adventure series.

Catch him if you can. The Fugitive is on the run! Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones race through the breathless man-hunt movie based on the classic TV series. Ford is prison escapee Dr. Richard Kimble, a Chicago surgeon falsely convicted of killing his wife and determined to prove his innocence by leading his pursuers to the one-armed man who actually committed the crime. Jones (1993 Academy Award and Golden Globe winner as Best Supporting Actor) is Sam Gerard, an unrelenting bloodhound of a U.S. marshal. They are hunted and hunter, and as directed by Andrew Davis, their non-stop chase has one exhilarating speed: all-out.
This classic British chiller is the horrifying true story of serial killer John Christie, played to unnerving effect by Richard Attenborough. When Timothy Evans (John Hurt) and his wife (Judy Geeson) rent a tiny room in Christie’s terraced house, they are unaware that they have sealed their fates and that they will fall foul of Christie's perverse and murderous scheme. Shot in the original street where Christie's crimes were perpetrated, Richard Fleischer's stark, unsensational depiction uses exteriors from the actual house as part of its grim recreation of the events.

Clint Eastwood's film Unforgiven is an exciting modern classic that rode off with four 1992 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Director. 'The movie summarised everything I feel about a Western.' Eastwood told the Los Angeles Times. 'The morale is the concern with gun play.' Eastwood and Morgan Freeman play retired, down-on-their-luck outlaws who pick up their guns one last time to collect a bounty offered by the vengeful prostitutes of the remote Wyoming town of Big Whiskey. Richard Harris is an ill-fated interloper, a colourful killer-for-hire called English Bob. And Best Supporting Actor Oscar Winner Gene Hackman is the sly and brutal local sheriff who's brand of law enforcement ranges from unconventional to ruthless. Big trouble if coming to Big Whiskey.

MARLON BRANDO (The Godfather) gives the performance of his career as the tough prizefighter-turnedlongshoreman Terry Malloy in this masterpiece of urban poetry, a raggedly emotional tale of individual failure and institutional corruption.

COBB) and Johnny’s right-hand man, Terry’s brother, Charley (In the Heat of the Night’s ROD STEIGER), as the authorities close in on them.

I WANT YOU TO WATCH THE MOVIE SCREEN. THERE S SOMETHING I WANT TO SHOW YOU. Fifteen years before Stranger Things combined science-fiction, Spielberg-ian touches and 80s nostalgia to much acclaim, Richard Kelly set the template and the high-water mark with his debut feature, Donnie Darko. Initially beset with distribution problems, it would slowly find its audience and emerge as arguably the first cult classic of the new millennium. Donnie is a troubled high school student: in therapy, prone to sleepwalking and in possession of an imaginary friend, a six-foot rabbit named Frank, who tells him the world is going to end in 28 days 06 hours 42 minutes and 12 seconds. During that time he will navigate teenage life, narrowly avoid death in the form of a falling jet engine, follow Frank s maladjusted instructions and try to maintain the space-time continuum. Described by its director as The Catcher in the Rye as told by Philip K. Dick , Donnie Darko combines an eye-catching, eclectic cast pre-stardom Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, heartthrob Patrick Swayze, former child star Drew Barrymore, Oscar nominees Mary McDonnell and Katherine Ross, and television favourite Noah Wyle and an evocative soundtrack of 80s classics by Echo and the Bunnymen, Tears for Fears and Duran Duran. This brand-new 4K restoration, carried out exclusively for this release by Arrow Films, allows a modern classic to finally receive the home video treatment it deserves.
