Christopher Webster [Celluloid 01.27.10] movie news poster dystopic

2015. The gangs have taken over.

Revolver UK have released two official quad posters for their first production - the youth targeted dystopian gang flick, Shank. Because of the release we've also go the official UK release date, March 26, 2010. Two reasons I'm interested in this film: I'm curious to see how far Revolver are willing to push the envelope with their recently established Gunslinger Productions and this looks like a modern, British version of The Warriors.

In a London of the future, the gap between rich and poor has grown to epic proportions and food has replaced drugs and guns as a priceless commodity. Junior (Kedar Williams- Sterling) and his gang the Paper Chaserz trade in ‘munchies’ but stay away from the territory disputes and the violence. A tip off about a food delivery leads to a conflict with a rival gang and the death of one of their own. Now Junior has to decide whether to stay true to his principles or whether to drag them all into a quest for revenge that could get them killed.

Shank stars Adam Deacon (Kidulthood), Ashley “Bashy” Thomas and Kaya Scodelario (Skins).
