Garnering comparison to classic crime films like The Long Good Friday, Gerard Johnson’s sophomore feature, Hyena looks a stylish, brutal affair. Find its new poster, below.

Peter Ferdinando has offered ace supporting turns to Jack O’Connell in Starred-Up and Ben Wheatley’s coterie of Civil War malcontents in A Field In England.

The London venue may be demolished to make way for a Crossrail ticket hall.
A petition in support of London’s Curzon Soho is gathering pace following reports that the arthouse cinema may face demolition.
The petition, hosted by 38 Degrees, generated close to 6,500 signatures in 24 hours after it was revealed that the cinema may be knocked down to make way for the £25bn Crossrail 2 development.
Transport for London (TfL) said the Curzon was needed to build a ticket hall and entrance into the new Crossrail 2 station. Plans show that nearby Soho Square would be cordoned off and used as a builders’ depot during works which could take 10 years to complete.
Organisers plan to email the petition to Crossrail developers and the Mayor of London as well as Curzon management.
