John Hawkes is Harold Buttleman


Academy Award Nominee John Hawkes (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) is Harold Buttleman, a small town tuxedo salesman who thinks he's the next Evel Knievel, in director Francis Stokes’ award-winning comedy Harold Buttleman : Daredevil Stuntman.

Buttleman (Hawkes, Winter’s Bone, The Sessions) is on the brink of TV stardom, a 3 am spot on the late night cable access, but the life of a daredevil stuntman is harder than it looks. Harold's parents want him to move out of their basement and his girlfriend wants him to settle into a career selling bathtub parts. For Harold, it all depends on his big break. He gathers the entire town for his gala premiere celebration, but there's a surprise in store. An offbeat comedy about following your dreams, and the finer points of being shot out of a cannon.

Leomark Studios presents a beautiful re-scan from 35 mm film of the classic, award-winning comedy.

An all-star cast, including Anita Barone (‘’Curb Your Enthusiasm’’), Karen Black (Easy Rider) and Dan Castellaneta (“The Simpsons”), feature in wonderful gem of a film gets the chance to be introduced to audiences worldwide. Available on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play Feb 2, 2018.

Ghost Stories - Global Trailer and Poster


Based on Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s original Olivier nominated stage production, the same team have co-written and directed this adaptation for the big screen.

Starring Martin Freeman, Alex Lawther, Andy Nyman, Paul Whitehouse, and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith

Andy Nyman also leads the cast, reprising his role as Professor Goodman alongside Paul Whitehouse (Alice in Wonderland, ‘Harry & Paul’, ‘The Fast Show’), Alex Lawther (‘Black Mirror’, Old Boys, The Imitation Game) and Martin Freeman (The Hobbit franchise, ‘Fargo’, ‘Sherlock’).

Phillip Goodman, professor of psychology, arch-skeptic, the one-man ‘belief buster’ – has his rationality tested to the hilt when he receives a letter apparently from beyond the grave. His mentor Charles Cameron, the ‘original’ TV parapsychologist went missing fifteen years before, presumed dead and yet now he writes to Goodman saying that the pair must meet. Cameron, it seems, is still very much alive. And he needs Goodman to find a rational explanation for three stories that have shaken Cameron to his core. As Goodman investigates, he meets three haunted people, each with a tale more frightening, uncanny and inexplicable than the last.

GHOST STORIES in cinemas on Friday 13th April 2018.
