Wellington Films, the Broadway-based production company behind 2006's London to Brighton, have announced the release date for their latest project, the much anticipated thrill Calibre. The Netflix original film, which stars Jack Lowden and Martin McCann, will be available to view worldwide on 29th June.
Produced by Alastair Clark and Anna Griffin, Calibre will receive its world premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival on Friday 22 June, having been nominated for the Michael Powell Award for outstanding British feature film.
The story follows lifelong friends Vaughn Carter (Jack Lowden - Dunkirk) and Marcus Trenton (Martin McCann – The Survivalist) as they head to an isolated village in the Scottish Highlands for a weekend hunting trip which descends into a never-ending nightmare. The men wrestle with intense paranoia and escalating fear as their friendship disintegrates and the locals close in, turning the hunt into a desperate struggle for survival.
Drawing on the cult thrillers of the 1970s, as well as the haunting majesty of the wilderness in which it was shot, this taut, merciless and deeply affecting feature debut announces a major new talent in writer-director Matt Palmer.
Calibre is available on Netflix worldwide on 29th June, 2018
