06 Jul 2017 : Katie McNeice
The gritty drama from Mark O’Connor will release to cinemas in the UK from Wildcard Distribution this August.

The title is the biggest grossing Irish film so far this year at the Irish Box Office with €365k to date, and is still screening in over sixty cinemas heading into its fourth week of release, with five new openings this weekend.

‘Cardboard Gangsters’ is set to be released in cinemas in London, Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow from Friday, 4th August.

Patrick O’Neill, Managing Director, Wildcard Distribution:
“We’re thrilled with the success that Cardboard Gangsters has had so far in Ireland. It’s really caught people’s imaginations and we’ve been blown away by the positive response it’s received. There’s been huge interest in the film from the UK so we can’t wait for audiences over there to see it."

Synopsis
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.
