GUNS AKIMBO Home Entertainment Release Announced!

With the closure of all cinemas across Australia, we’ve had to cut our GUNS AKIMBO‘s theatrical run short but never fear as Madman Films have just revealed to us that they will release the film to Blu-ray & DVD on May 27th!
GA-DVD.fw GA-BD.fwNo word on Special Features just yet but given how content-heavy DEATHGASM was, we’re optimistic that Madman will deliver.

GUNS AKIMBO is the latest feature from DEATHGASM writer/director Jason Lei Howden and stars Daniel Radcliffe (SWISS ARMY MAN) & Samara Weaving (READY OR NOT)!

Nerdy video game developer (Radcliffe) is a little too fond of stirring things up on the internet with his caustic, prodding, and antagonizing comments. One night, he makes the mistake of drunkenly dropping an inflammatory barb on a broadcast of Skizm, an illegal death-match fight club streamed live to the public. In response, Riktor (Ned Dennehy), the maniacal mastermind behind the channel, decides to force Miles’ hand (or hands, as it were) and have him join the “fun.” Miles wakes to find heavy pistols bolted into his bones, and learns Nix (Weaving), the trigger-happy star of Skizm, is his first opponent.

Gleefully echoing elements of Edgar Wright’s SCOTT PILGRAM VS THE WORLD, THE PURGE franchise, and video games like MORTAL KOMBAT, GUNS AKIMBO is hilariously dark, viciously violent, and potentially — chillingly — prescient!

Director Jason Lei Howden foretells of a future that may soon await us: drone-captured live feeds, UFC-like competitions pushed to an extreme, and online streaming platforms used for gladiatorial entertainment all around the world. As Miles navigates the underworld of Skizm, the stakes — and the ratings — have never been higher.

GUNS AKIMBO out on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital on May 27th.
