DEVIL'S COVE - The first trailer for Erik Lundmark thriller, opening in theaters this August!

This summer, take a killer road trip to Devil’s Cove.

In his award-winning feature directorial debut, opening August 3 in L.A theaters, director Erik Lundmark serves up a roguishly electrifying indie take on Thelma & Louise that pits an interracial lesbian couple, fresh from a killing, against a dark highway.

New girl in town Toni (Christelle Baguidy) is unhappy in her marriage to the vehement Rick. Not surprisingly, her eye catches that of another- Jackie (Chloe Traicos in an award-nominated performance), a woman who recently escaped a jail sentence involving the death of her child.

When Rick (Cameron Barnes) gets wind of the passionate relationship his wife is having with Jackie, he erupts into a fiery rage. In an act of self-defence, Toni and Jackie end Rick’s life. To stay out of jail, the duo hit the road – one with many twists and turns in it.

Made for just $10,000 by Leomark Studios, the truly independent "Devil's Cove" premiered at the New York City International Film Festival where it was nominated for two Best Actress awards (for Chloe Traicos) and Best Original Screenplay. Director Erik Lundmark also won a Global Accolade at the Global Accolade Awards.

Chloe Traicos, Christelle Baguidy, Cameron Barnes, Westworld’s Michael Keyes and Sammy Anderson co-star in Devil’s Cove, opening in theaters August 3.

SICILIAN GHOST STORY - Poster and Trailer Launch 

A gripping real-life story of a Mafia kidnapping in Italy is enthrallingly re-imagined as supernatural fantasy by the directors of the acclaimed Salvo.

Giuseppe is the 13-year-old son of a Mafia hitman, turned informant. When he disappears, it is assumed he has been kidnapped by his father's former bosses. Giuseppe's girlfriend, the determined Luna, battles her mother (some kind of wicked witch) and the police authority's sloth and corruption in her search for him. Cleverly plotting her relentless quest, while her imagination conjures up mysterious and magical visions of where Giuseppe might be, Sicilian Ghost Story contrasts these fantastical worlds with the grim reality of the boy's cruel captivity.

An enchanting, original and bittersweet film with a dark heart, Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza draw out wonderful performances from their young cast, while prolific cinematographer Luca Bigazzi's luminous images highlight both the magic and bleakness of these worlds.

In Cinemas and Digital - 3rd August
Certificate TBC / Running time 110 Minutes

Paw Pals… Check out these ultimate animal sidekicks in film

From the loyal, life-long companions like Pascal in Tangled to the totally over-the-top but loving likes of Donkey in Shrek, every mighty hero needs a just as legendary sidekick, and animals make the best pals. From sniffing out the bad guys to helping their friend’s escape the clutches of their evil captor’s, our favourite films wouldn’t be the same without these furry friends.

To celebrate the release of Tad the Lost Explorer and the Secret of King Midas available on Digital Download now and DVD from July 16, we’re taking a look at the ultimate animal sidekicks in films, which includes one of Tad’s best buds, Belzoni the Bird.

Pascal from Tangled
As Rapunzel’s one true friends and her silent, colour-changing sidekick, this cute little guy certainly left us all wanting a cute, little pet chameleon. Keeping Rapunzel company during her long life locked away in the tower meant they soon became best friends. Although he’s only small, he plays a big role in Rapunzel’s life, supporting and encouraging her on her journey to escape the grasps of her evil Mother Gothel and find her way out of the tower and into the real world. His dedication to help his best pal and encourage her on her way earns him his hero status.

Donkey from Shrek
Not only Shrek’s famous sidekick, but also his best friend, Donkey is an unforgettable character. Although often dramatic, Donkey acted valiantly throughout the series as Shrek’s ‘noble steed’ while also providing the laughs along the way – even if he did wind Shrek up with his singing. From fighting alongside Shrek to rescue Princess Fiona from the dragon-guarded castle, to accompanying him on his journey to find the new king of Far Far Away, and even on Shrek’s search for love, Donkey’s company meant there was never a dull moment. And even when Shrek didn’t think he needed a sidekick, we all know that really, he did.

Scooby Doo
As one of the most iconic animal sidekicks on screen, no mystery would have been solved without him, even if he and Shaggy did mostly stumble across the bad guys by mistake. As Shaggy’s best friend and the gang’s best bad-guy tracker, Scooby always led the team to unmask the villains and was rewarded with his famous Scooby snacks. Solving mysteries and providing us with a laugh earns Scooby a spot on our list of ultimate animal sidekicks in film. What do they say… dogs are a man’s best friend!

Timon and Pumbaa from Lion King
Without these guys, Lion King would definitely have had a few less laughs. As the ultimate sidekicks to Simba, they support him through the tough times helping him to reunite with his pride and take his place as the rightful King of the Pride Lands. They’re jazz hands and musical numbers arguably make them the greatest characters in the Lion King and Simba would have been lost without their humorous guidance. They are definitely up there with some of the best animal sidekicks in film, they provided us with Hakuna Matata after all…

Belzoni the Bird from Tad the Lost Explorer
Tad couldn’t have taken on his dreams of becoming an archaeologist travelling the world if it wasn’t for his zany friends, including the mischievous, Belzoni the Bird. When Tad discovers that they must adventure to find King Midas’ missing necklace, his friend Sara goes missing, leaving behind her pet bird, Belzoni. Together they uncover hidden secrets, lost treasure and rescue the girl of his dreams… Keeping Tad in check and on the right path to find Sara is top of Belzoni’s list and his cheeky nature means he provides the laughs for their adventures as well.

Tad the Lost Explorer and the Secret of King Midas is available on
Digital Download now and on DVD July 16.
