UK’s first-ever red-carpet Drive-In Film Club Premiere: Break
Film Tickets On Sale Wednesday 17th June @ 10 AM | Brent Cross & Dagenham
The Drive-In Club has announced that the Brent Cross venue will host the UK’s first-ever red-carpet Drive-In Film Premiere on 22nd July.
The film, ‘Break’, a British thriller, stars the late Golden Globe winner and Hollywood legend Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner/True Blood) in his final film role. His co-stars include Bafta winner Adam Deacon (Kidulthood), Sam Gittins (The Liberator/Obey), David Yip (Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom, A View to a Kill) and Jamie Foreman (Layer Cake, Elizabeth). The film also features Terri Dwyer (Hollyoaks/Loose Women), who is producing the film alongside Dean Fisher, whilst Michael Elkin has written and directed the movie.
‘Break’ is a life-affirming rags-to-riches story that follows the troubled but talented Spencer Pryde (Gittins), a gifted, inner-city kid who was wasting his life on petty crime and violence. A chance encounter with former ‘eight ball’ pool champion Vince Qiang (Yip) and tough guy club owner Ray (Hauer) presents him with the opportunity to turn his life around. When tragedy strikes, Spencer finally breaks away from his so-called friends and all the negative influences of his life – drugs, violence and knife crime. With Qiang’s guidance, Spencer makes a bid for a prestigious snooker tournament held in Beijing…but can he overcome his demons and use the talents he was blessed with?
