The historical drama Blood on the Crown will debut on DVD June 15 from Distribution Solutions and Electric Entertainment.
It is available now via TVOD.
Directed by Davide Ferrario (After Midnight, We All Fall Down), the film stars Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, Mozart in the Jungle) and Harvey Keitel (Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction) in the portrayal of the events of the Sette Giugno, when civil unrest on the archipelago of Malta went from a simmer to a hard boil.
Based on actual events, Blood on the Crown tells the story of how Maltese citizens fought for their independence against England in 1919 — a deadly rebellion covered up for nearly 100 years. Immediately following the end of World War I, the Maltese people united in an uprising for their country’s independence against the British. A small number of soldiers were sent to quell the rioting protesters, whose numbers had reached the thousands. Blood spilled in the streets when the British Army gunned down unarmed protesters. The large number of casualties and the imprisonment of more than 115 Maltese citizens were an embarrassment to the British Army.
The Sette Giugno is now a Maltese national holiday.
The Western Righteous Blood and the horror flick The Blackout Experiment are coming on DVD and digital this summer from Distribution Solutions/Alliance Entertainment and Archstone Entertainment.
The Blackout Experiment is coming to DVD and digital June 15. A horror film in the vein of Saw and Hostel, it follows a small group of strangers who wake up in a locked room, each armed with a weapon, and find themselves the unknowing participants in a twisted psychological experiment. Not only are their lives at stake — the lives of their loved ones are also on the line. The terms are simple: Follow the rules, or their loved ones die. The film stars Troy Jones (“Criminal Minds,” Abraham’s Boys) and Cheverly Amalia (London Virginia).
Righteous Blood will come out on DVD and digital rental Aug. 3 From writer-director Rene Perez (The Snow Queen, Sleeping Beauty), the actioner finds a wanted gunslinger facing the most formidable enemy of all: his inner demons. In Righteous Blood, grizzled outlaw Jericho (Michael Paré, The Virgin Suicides, The Lincoln Lawyer) is on the run from a bounty hunter that will not quit. In a barren place that seems to know no moral code, a chance encounter with a humble priest causes Jericho to question everything.
