Due out this August, upcoming British action/thriller Offender is set around the London riots of last summer, and looks like it could be one of the best British films of the year.
Adam got a chance to sit down with director Ron Scalpello and writer/producer Paul Van Carter earlier this year, and the interview with them definitely makes the summer film sound promising.
Revolver have released the first trailer for the film, and its official Facebook has debuted the first posters and new images ahead of its release next month.
“WHEN YOU’VE LOST EVERYTHING… HOW FAR WILL REVENGE TAKE YOU?
Hot new talent Joe Cole ignites a masterpiece of explosive intensity in this powerful action suspense thriller.
