EXTORTION

ON DVD AND DIGITAL PLATFORMS

FROM 5TH JUNE 2017

See how far a man is willing to go to save his family in EXTORTION, the new action thriller from Hollywood’s up-and-coming director Phil Volken, available on DVD and digital platforms from 5th June 2017, courtesy of Precision Pictures.

Kevin Riley (Eion Bailey) is a successful doctor who has worked hard to secure his family’s future. When the long hours take a toll on his relationship with his wife, Julie (Bethany Joy Lenz), and son, they decide to take a family holiday to the Caribbean. However this was not the break they pictured, and the holiday takes a dangerous turn when they become deserted on an island several miles from the mainland. When a boat comes along the family’s hopes of rescue are raised, but are quickly dashed when its cold-hearted skipper, fisherman Miguel Kaba (Barkhad Abdi), demands one million dollars in exchange for safe harbour. A tense stand-off ensues between Kevin, who is fighting to protect his family; and Miguel, whose interests lie squarely with getting his pay off – at any cost.

Featuring an outstanding central performance from BAFTA winner and Oscar nominee Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips), alongside big and small screen stalwart Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon, Shooter), Eion Bailey (Band of Brothers, Ray Donovan) and Bethany Joy Lenz (One Tree Hill, Dexter), EXTORTION is a nail-biting action thriller you won’t want to miss.
