Action packed pulp thriller DOGMAN starring Caleb Landry Jones is being released on Blu-ray and across digital platforms in the UK & Ireland from 11th March.
The latest film from Luc Besson - the visionary filmmaker The Fifth Element, La Femme Nikita and the Transporter series - DOGMAN won the Graffetta d’Oro for Best Film at the 2023 Venice Film Festival. It’s extraordinary, intense and heartfelt - everything you’d expect from the unique and uncompromising mind of Besson.
DOGMAN stars Caleb Landry Jones (Cannes winner for Best Actor for Nitram) as Doug, a troubled man who finds salvation through his canine friends. The cast also includes Jojo T Gibbs (Fresh), Christopher Denham (Billions), Clemens Schick (Das Boot), and Marisa Berenson (Barry Lyndon).
Featuring an emotive score by Besson’s longtime collaborator Éric Serra (Léon), and exquisitely filmed by Colin Wandersman (Pandemonium), DOGMAN features production design by César award winner Hugues Tissandier (The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec).
Think Taxi Driver meets Lassie, DOGMAN, inspired by a shocking real life story, is a wonderfully styled excursion into the wild world of dog-loving Doug, packed with deliriously exciting set pieces, brutal moments of violence and, of course, an irresistible cast of loveable mutts.
As a child, Doug’s abusive father made him live in the family kennel, where he developed a strong bond with the dogs. As a wheelchair-bound adult he is a loner, running a stray dogs’ home, and pursuing his love of theatre and cabaret. He also helps to right wrongs - with his crack team of canine companions - in the harsh and corrupt city. When the state department suddenly closes down his animal shelter, and a ruthless mobster he has crossed seeks revenge, it looks like a brutal day of bloody reckoning is at hand for Doug and his faithful friends.
