First trailer for hard-hitting ‘A Violent Man’ with Craig Fairbrass, Stephen Odubola, Jason Flemyng

by Paul Heath

The first trailer for the upcoming British prison-set movie A Violent Man has been released online courtesy of Vertigo Releasing, who have secured the film for distribution in the UK and Ireland on 4th February 2022. Craig Fairbrass leads the cast of the film from Ross McCall (White Collar, 24, Band of Brothers) who makes his feature directing debut, helming from his own script.

Craig Fairbrass (Villain, Muscle, The Rise of the Footsoldier franchise), Stephen Odubola (Blue Story), Jason Flemyng (Boiling Point, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), and Zoe Tapper (Liar) lead the cast of the film.

The synopsis is as follows:

Steve Mackleson (Fairbrass) is a violent and dangerous prisoner, incarcerated for double murder in a maximum security prison, and wracked with inner turmoil about his past sins and unquenchable need for carnage. When Marcus (Odubola) becomes his new cell mate, and a daughter he has never met finally requests a chance to meet her estranged father, Steve must reconsider his nihilistic outlook and brutal outbursts. When Marcus becomes the victim of a revenge attack, Steve steps in to save him and they both become marked men, their sentences set to be cut short, the hard way.

The poster for the film has also been released, which you can see above. This is an outstanding piece of work, and one definitely for those early 2022 diaries. A Violent Man hits both cinemas and digital on 4th February, so plenty of options to catch it.

A Violent Man comes to the screen from the producing team that brought you one-shot drama Boiling Point, which is set to arrive in cinemas early next month following an applauded festival run that took in Karlovy Vary, and the BFI London Film Festival, amongst others.

Here’s the trailer for A Violent Man, which was previously titled Ire.
