Landing in our inbox is the Jackdaw trailer which had its World Premiere at the legendary Fantastic Fest in Texas on the 22nd of September 2023.
JACKDAWis an unrelenting action thriller set over the course of a single night against the backdrop of North East England, an area where breath taking coastal landscapes meet the brutality of industry. Jack Dawson, a former motocross champion and army veteran, returns to his hometown to care for his brother after their mother dies. Hoping to start a new life, he takes what could be a life-changing job for an old school friend turned local criminal, Silas. What should have been a straightforward pick-up of a package in the North Sea turns into a nightmare when Jack is double-crossed, and his brother is kidnapped. As he fights for survival and searches for answers, Jack encounters friends and adversaries old and new across a violent night-time odyssey through England’s Northern rust belt.
STARRING OLIVER JACKSON-COHEN, JENNA COLEMAN, THOMAS TURGOOSE, RORY MCCANN and is the feature film debut of North East-born writer-director Jamie Childs (The Sandman, Willow, His Dark Materials). The film features a pulse-pounding soundtrack including classic dance music tracks from The Prodigy, The KLF, Aphex Twin and Robin S, as well as new wave music from Adam and the Ants, The Revillos and a brand-new exclusive track from North East star Sam Fender.
McCann has said, ‘We see so many American films set in atmospheric towns that don’t tie themselves to local, kitchen-sink stories. I thought, why don’t we do this in Britain? We set out to push the envelope of what was possible stylistically and tonally in our region. Its clash of pastoral and industrial worlds is the perfect setting for an exciting, pulpy chase thriller.’
JACKDAW is IN CINEMAS on 26th JANUARY 2024
