Anti-Social comes to UK DVD with a soundtrack download in September

19 August 2015

Following its successful theatrical release, Reg Traviss’ hard-hitting Anti-Social makes its DVD debut along with its brand new, eclectic soundtrack, featuring never heard before material, as a free download, courtesy of Spirit Entertainment.

Grime stars Devlin and Skepta make their acting debuts in key roles in this slick film from Traviss, an established director with titles such as Joy Division and Screwed among his feature film credits.

Inspired by the spate of smash and grab robberies that hit the news between 2012 and 2013, this action-packed gangland thriller is set amidst London’s sub-cultures, with Dee (Gregg Sulkin), an anarchic graffiti artist confronting the system, and his brother Marcus (Josh Myers), a smash and grab robber, trying to make it rich with a jewellery store crime wave. For the pair being anti-social is a way of life.

As Dee finds acceptance with the city’s art scene, Marcus becomes a rising underworld face and his ambitions escalate. But when a savage gang war erupts, Dee is forced to remember who he is, as police and rival criminals close in on the family, and Marcus’ gang defiantly prepare to take down the largest target of their careers.

Sulkin (Sixty-Six, Faking It) and Myers are joined by a cast of new and established British acting talent, including This Is England’s Andrew Shim, Sophie Colquhoun (The Inbetweeners, Plebs), Richie Campbell (Anuvahood, Waterloo Road), Caroline Ford (Lake Placid, Sleepy Hollow) and Doug Allen (Band of Brothers, Chasing Shadows). American star of Suits, Meghan Markle features in a major role as Dee’s girlfriend Kirsten, alongside renowned German actor Christian Berkel (Downfall, Inglorious Basterds) and singer Lisa Moorish.

The stand out soundtrack is made up of a composed score by George Kallis (Highlander, Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom) and original music which reflect the sub-cultures with a combination of Indie-Punk and Dance, Hip-Hop and Ska. The composed tracks were written by various musicians who came together to work on the film, many of the tracks were written and recorded by Babyshambles’s Drew Mcconnell and Adam Falkner and The King Blues’s Johnny ‘Itch’ Fox. Other artists include, Massive Attack’s Shara Nelson and rapper Rodney P. The soundtrack will be included with the DVD as a free download and includes exclusive new tracks.
