"No matter where you go, there you are."


This June ARROW brings us a classic Japanese thriller trilogy, a star-studded murder mystery, Eli Roth’s Arrow faves, and more

Key highlights this June on the essential, alternative streaming service ARROW includes Yûsaku Matsuda as an ice cold hitman in the Game Trilogy, James Franco, Timothée Chalamet and Christian Slater in the thrilling crime drama True Deception, the Cairo-set award-winning nailbiter Clash, horror director Eli Roth Selects and much more…

In June, ARROW are proud to present Tôru Murakawa’s action-packed triptych from the late 1970s, Game Trilogy – The Most Dangerous Game, The Killing Game, and The Execution Game. In a career-defining role, Yûsaku Matsuda is Shohei Narumi, an ice cool hitman of few words, a steely trigger finger, and a heart of stone. The trilogy launched Matsuda as the Toei tough guy for a new generation. In The Most Dangerous Game he’s hired by a company bidding for a lucrative government air defence contract to take out the competition; in The Killing Game, he finds himself caught in the midst of violent yakuza gang warfare; while in The Execution Game he falls for a mysterious saloon bar chanteuse who may or may not be part of the same, shadowy underworld organisation. Make sure you don’t miss these outstanding thrillers on ARROW.

Also showing in June, True Deception, a gripping crime drama about a writer investigating the case of missing woman, with a stellar cast including James Franco (The Disaster Artist), Ed Harris (Top Gun: Maverick), Christian Slater (Heathers), Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City), and Oscar-nominated star Timothée Chalamet.

On no account should you miss ARROW’s June presentation of the festival smash (and winner of the Un Certain Regard award at Cannes in 2016) Clash, an intense and staggeringly important portrait of Egypt, set in Cairo in 2013, two years after the Egyptian revolution, where demonstrators of divergent political and religious backgrounds are forcibly detained together in a claustrophobic police truck. Don’t take our word for it, here’s what Tom Hanks had to say about the film: “If there’s any way you can see Clash… you must. You simply must.”

Seasons in June include ELI ROTH SELECTS, where the Cabin Fever and Hostel director, and Arrow fan, chooses his favourite films from the label, including Basket Case, Madhouse and The Mutilator; ERO GURO, celebrating the Japanese sub-genre of horror and pink films, combining the erotic (ero) and the grotesque (guro) to deviant, decadent and unforgettable effect, with the likes of Shogun’s Joy of Torture, Blind Beast, and Irezumi on offer; MARTIAL ARTS MAYHEM, with titles including House of Flying Daggers, Vengeance is Mine, All Others Pay Cash and Dragon Inn; and SCI-FI STUNNERS, which features No Escape starring Ray Liotta, cult classic Donnie Darko, and David Cronenberg’s Crimes of the Future.

ALSO SHOWING: Louche French road movie Fill ‘Er Up With Super, Paul Joyce documentaries on influential directors Monte Hellman and John Cassavetes; Oz dog attack thriller The Pack, Ray Winstone in Reckless, and more…
