Highly anticipated French Spy Thriller The Bureau Series 5 streaming now on Sundance Now alongside complete 1-5 Box Set

Garnering critical acclaim across the globe and winning awards galore, French spy thriller THE BUREAU is probably one of the greatest TV series you've never heard of...But that's about to change as Sundance Now UK, the AMC Networks' streaming service available as an Amazon Prime add on, is set to air the exclusive UK premiere of THE BUREAU, Season 5. This exclusive Sundance Now series arrives in full on September 17, 2020.

Seasons 1 and 2 arrive exclusively on the streaming service from August 27, 2020 to join seasons 3 and 4, so viewers can binge ahead of the season 5 premiere. THE BUREAU, Complete 1 - 5 Seasons will be available exclusively on Sundance Now.

Hailed as 'the smartest and most authentic-feeling procedural espionage series anywhere in the world' by The New York Times, the suspense filled series, from creator and showrunner Eric Rochant (Mafiosa, The Patriots) takes us into the undercover world of French agents at the DGSE, France's leading intelligence centre.

Within the DGSE (Directorate General of External Security), the 'Office of Legends' operate the most valuable members of the French intelligence services: secret agents. Spending prolonged amounts of time immersed in hostile countries, these operatives are tasked with identifying potential sources of intelligence among the people they come into contact with. Operating under a fabricated identity, they live for years in a permanent state of double identity, between an apparently normal life and their covert intelligence activity.

The thrilling first series begins with one of the top agents, Malotru, (Mathieu Kassovitz - Amelie, The Fifth Element) recalled from a lengthy undercover mission in Damascus. Although lauded as a hero by the Bureau, can he settle back into his old life after six years as someone else? And what about the Syrian girlfriend he left behind...is she who she says she is, or could she be his downfall?

'Gripping, compelling and packs a real emotional punch. Once The Bureau has its hooks in you, it doesn't let go'

Mail on Sunday

'Stylish mise-en-scene, formidable writing'

Gripping Irish immigration drama TAKEN DOWN gets its UK premiere on Acorn TV 21 September

This critically acclaimed, gripping six-part Irish crime drama stars Lynn Rafferty (Dead Still) as the detective investigating the violent death of a young Nigerian migrant on the streets of Dublin. Inspector Jen Rooney and her team soon discover a world where refugees exist in limbo, and the impact that their investigation has on fragile lives.

When an asylum seeker Abeni (Aissa Maiga) and her two sons Isiah (Aaron Edo) and Oba (Sean Edo) are caught up in the investigation, the precariousness of their position in Ireland becomes even more apparent, as does their desperation to stay, leading the police into a shady underworld where criminals are all too willing to take advantage of these vulnerable communities.

Also starring Brian Gleeson (Phantom Thread, Logan Lucky),Orla Fitzgerald (The Wind that Shakes the Barley), and Slimane Dazi (Only Lovers Left Alive)




George A. Romero's zombie masterpiece Dawn of the Dead arrives in two stunning limited edition box sets, 4K UHD and Blu-ray, on 26 October 2020

This Autumn, Second Sight Films presents the horror release to end all horror releases. Fans, aficionados and collectors are in for a treat as horror maestro George A. Romero's long-awaited, highly anticipated Dawn of the Dead, finally gets the home entertainment release it deserves.

Widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest horror films of all time, this seminal work has been painstakingly restored and arrives in two separate format releases: Dawn Of The Dead Limited Edition 4K UHD and Dawn Of The Dead Limited Edition Blu-ray on 26 October 2020.

Both Box Sets arrive in stunning packaging featuring the original iconic poster art plus newly commissioned artwork inside. These include a whopping four discs - with three versions of the film: The Theatrical Cut, The Extended ('Cannes') Cut and The Argento Cut, plus stacks of special features that take in new and archive interviews, including the previously unreleased The Lost Romero Dawn Interview. With commentaries and documentaries galore, soundtrack CDs and a stunning brand new 160-page hardback book Dissecting the Dead complete with brand new writing, this is a veritable treasure trove and a must have for any collector.

The film originally arrived 10 years after the seminal Night of the Living Dead and ushered in a new era of zombie films. It showed Romero once again ahead of the curve, mixing biting political satire with state-of-the-art-gore for a genre defining masterpiece that packs as much of a punch today as it did 40 years ago.

With a zombie epidemic escalating, a small band of survivors seek refuge in that shrine to capitalism, the shopping mall. But the undead, still possessed by an instinctive desire to consume, have had the same idea...What follows is a nail-biting thrill-ride and fight to survive. Oh, and watch out for those helicopter blades!

'The greatest zombie film ever made'

Screen Rant

'Grim, gruelling but beautifully shot...intelligent, sophisticated horror'
