First up, for The Tournament;

THE TOURNAMENT Every ten years in an unsuspecting town, The Tournament takes place. A battle royale between the world’s deadliest assassins. The last assassin standing receiving the $10,000,000 cash prize and the title of Worlds No1, which itself carries the legendary million dollar a bullet price tag. All fights are monitored 24hrs a day on redirected CCTV cameras and broadcast secretly to a ring of high stake billionaire gamblers. A gritty, multistranded action-thriller, The Tournament brings together international killers from every imaginable discipline in a blood-bathed contest to the death. We follow the competition favourites through stories of love, betrayal, revenge and redemption as they finally discover the true value of life.

Starring Robert Carlyle, Ving Rhames, Kelly Hu

It’s Christmas Eve and the residents of a British cul-de-sac are plunged into a visceral world of violence, terror and paranoia. Ring fenced by the military and ordered to stay indoors, a single mother must overcome all the odds to save her daughter.

Both movies are well worth keeping an eye out for.
