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.

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.

TRAILER: Euthanizer injects into theaters this July


Writer/director Teemu Nikki’s Euthanizer injects into theaters this July, and August on VOD, via Uncork’d Entertainment.

A film that “keeps you on your toes” (Cinema Scope), Euthanizer provides “a film experience completely different than you'd find in mainstream cinema” (Birth.Movies.Death).

Veijo runs a black-market operation euthanizing people's ailing pets to make extra money. It is clear he has dark secrets, but only after meeting a young nurse and a seedy mechanic (who's mixed up with a vicious gang of neo-Nazis) that Veijo's carefully balanced, albeit deranged, life begins to show cracks. Things turn to the extreme when Veijo does not finish a job he was paid to and his client finds out…in this grungy exploitation throwback.

A “great addition to – and a new take on – the current wave of grungy exploitation independent cinema” (The AV Club), Euthanizer combines horror and humor like never before. Prepare yourself for the film experience of the summer.

New Trailer for THE FOREST OF THE LOST SOULS


Ricardo and Carolina are complete strangers that meet seemingly by chance in the “Forest of the Lost Souls”, a place where many people go to commit suicide. These two, a young woman and an old man, are no different than the others as they also came to the forest for this very reason.

They decide to briefly postpone killing themselves in order to explore the forest and also to continue talking to one another, as Ricardo and Carolina find themselves intrigued by one another.

However, as the pair go further into the forest it becomes clear that one of them has other reasons for being in the forest and is not who they would have the other believe them to be and is actually a psychopath…

The Forest of the Lost Souls will open theatrically August 5 in L.A and other cities.

Escape Plan 2 - New Poster and Trailer


Strap yourself in for the second instalment of the explosive and electrifying action franchise, as the on-screen forces of Sylvester Stallone (Creed, The Expendables) and Dave Bautista (Blade Runner 2049, Guardians of the Galaxy) combine in Escape Plan 2, available in cinemas and on Digital HD from 20th July 2018, courtesy of Signature Entertainment.

Years after Ray Breslin (three-time ACADEMY AWARD© nominee and GOLDEN GLOBE© winner Sylvester Stallone) fought his way out of the escape-proof prison called “The Tomb,” he’s organised a new top-notch, for-hire security force that includes some of the best in the business. But when one of Breslin’s team goes missing – inside a computerised techno-terror battle-maze known as HADES, where human combatants brawl like beasts – Breslin goes back into the secret lock-up to save his friend. To attempt this near impossible mission, he enlists his old friend Trent Derosa (Dave Bautista) and the returning surveillance expert Hush (Curtis ‘50 Cent’ Jackson), to help him return from the gauntlet with both his friend and his life.

Following on from the success of the first film in 2013, Escape Plan 2 aims to build on the story and characters that connected so well with action movie fans the first time around, elevating them to a whole new white knuckle ride into the dystopian land of the dead. With some of the action genre’s biggest hitters coming together, Escape Plan 2 promises audiences one hell of a ride.
