Following on from its exclusive preview screening in Picturehouse Central in London last night, Cardboard Gangsters will now be released in cinemas across the UK this Friday 4th August.

The film which is the biggest grossing Irish film so far this year at the Irish Box Office will play in cinemas in major cities including London, Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow.  A full list of cinemas is below.

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.
