Bits & Pieces: Darts Edition

Bits & Pieces: Darts Edition

Arriving on DVD/VOD on February 26, the film follows young trophy girlfriend Sascha as she leaves the sidelines to take center stage in a story that looks sun-kissed, fun, and sexy until the tables are turned—much like its central character. Indiewire’s Eric Kohn called HOLIDAY “an astonishing first feature…a fearless work, anchored by a bold, subtle lead performance” while Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter laud’s the film’s narrative, stating “it’s directly due to the dramatic somnolence of the first half that what comes after hits with such blunt force.” 

The Secret Life of Pets 2 will follow summer 2016’s blockbuster about the lives our pets lead after we leave for work or school each day.  Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy will produce the sequel to the comedy that had the best opening ever for an original film, animated or otherwise. The Secret Life of Pets 2 will see the return of writer Brian Lynch (Minions) and once again be directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me series, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax).

In the near future, the President of the United States of America hires a team of military veterans to retrieve an alien bio-weapon from a top-secret research facility orbiting the Earth. These highly trained mercenaries must infiltrate the space station and recover the deadly experimental alien cargo located onboard. All is going according to the plan until the cargo escapes.



New York City architect Natalie (Rebel Wilson) works hard to get noticed at her job but is more likely to be asked to deliver coffee and bagels than to design the city’s next skyscraper. And if things weren’t bad enough, Natalie, a lifelong cynic when it comes to love, has an encounter with a mugger that renders her unconscious, waking to discover that her life has suddenly become her worst nightmare—a romantic comedy—and she is the leading lady. 

In a world where journalism is under attack, Sunday Times journalist Marie Colvin (Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike) is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontlines of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless, while constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado. After being hit by a grenade in Sri Lanka, she wears a distinctive eye patch and is still as comfortable sipping martinis with London’s elite as she is confronting dictators. Colvin sacrifices loving relationships, and over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she’s witnessed takes its toll. Yet, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her, along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan) to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs.  

The Movie Partnership has confirmed that the heartfelt comedy-drama, Departures, will be available on Home Entertainment from 4th March. Ahead of its UK release, the film will also be screened at the Dublin International Film Festival on 25th February as a part of their Fantastic Flix programme. Departures stars the outstanding British talent of Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) and Asa Butterfield (Journey’s End).

Seven mercenaries are on a mission impossible in Uncork’d Entertainment’s action-packed The Glorious Seven, writer-director Harald Franklin’s homage to Akira Kurosawa´s 1954 masterpiece Shichinin no samurai

Written and produced by Phil Blattenberger, Point Man is a compelling, high-stakes action film that gives texture and meaning to racial tension in the 1960s and moral crises endemic to the Vietnam War. These themes, common in films of the 1990s, find themselves presented in a new light here.

Trying to escape her broken past, Sarah O’Neill (Seána Kerslake) is building a new life on the fringes of a backwood rural town with her young son Chris (James Quinn Markey). A terrifying encounter with a mysterious neighbour shatters her fragile security, throwing Sarah into a spiralling nightmare of paranoia and mistrust, as she tries to uncover if the disturbing changes in her little boy are connected to an ominous sinkhole buried deep in the forest that borders their home.
