Box-Office Success Cardboard Gangsters Set for TV Premiere on TV3 – December 18th
11 Dec 2017 : Nathan Griffin
TV3 have confirmed that they are set to screen the world television premiere of ‘Cardboard Gangsters’ on Monday, December 18th at 9pm.

Mark O'Connor's film is on track to be the biggest Irish film of 2017 at the Irish box office. The gritty crime drama finished its cinema run with a box-office total of €550,000 from Irish cinemas.

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 is 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.  

‘Cardboard Gangsters’ has since expanded into Northern Irish and UK cinemas after having a very successful launch in Ireland. The film went on DVD release in October and included an exclusive documentary 'Shooting in the Hood: The Making of Cardboard Gangsters', which offers viewers an insight into the behind-the-scenes action during the making of the film.

The film was produced by Stalker Films and Five Knight Films in association with Filmbase and with the support of the BAI, Egg Post Production and TV3 and was distributed theatrically by Wildcard Distribution, with the DVD being distributed by Precision Pictures.

Watch ‘Cardboard Gangsters’ on Monday, December 18th at 9pm on TV3.
