Cardboard Gangsters has earned over €400k at the Irish Box Office after four weeks of release.  It also made its way back into the top five films at this weekend’s box office, performing better than the Hollywood blockbusters Wonder Woman, Transformers and the comedy The House.

The gritty crime drama is the biggest grossing Irish film so far this year at the Irish Box Office and is set to be released in cinemas in London, Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow from Friday, 4th August.

Directed by Mark O’Connor and starring John Connors (Love/Hate, King of the Travellers), Fionn Walton (Out of Here, What Richard Did) and Kierston Wareing (Fish Tank, East Enders) CARDBOARD GANGSTERS follows a group of wannabe gangsters as they attempt to gain control of the drug trade in Darndale, chasing the glorified lifestyle of money, power and sex.  Jay Connolly (Connors) is a part-time DJ and low-level drug dealer.  When his welfare is cut off he decides it’s time for him and his gang to enter the big leagues. This attracts the attention of the local King Pin and sets Jay down a violent and bloody path.

The film was produced for Stalker Films and Five Knight Films in association with Filmbase and with the support of the BAI, Egg Post Production and TV3.
