Here’s the first official trailer of Alleycats, the upcoming British action thriller movie directed by Ian Bonhote based on a script he co-wrote with Anthea Anka, Max Kinnings, and Simon Uttley and starr:
“ALLEYCATS is a high-octane, action/thriller set in the cut-throat world of illegal bike racing.
When bike courier CHRIS stumbles across the brutal murder of a young woman whilst delivering a package, he finds himself in danger. Realizing that the perpetrator of the crime, YATES, is a well-known Member of Parliament, Chris sets out to blackmail him. But when Chris takes part in an Alleycat Race, an illegal bike race through the city, he is knocked down and killed in a hit-and-run accident – the driver, RIVES, is Yates’ fixer. Chris has been silenced, but there was a witness…
His sister, and fellow racer, DANNI sees Chris get hit and refuses to believe it was a simple accident. Her forceful and impulsive nature aggravates the police, who are slow to investigate and increasingly untrustworthy. So Danni takes matters into her own hands, uncovering bribery and corruption within the courier community and further afield.
As she begins to piece the puzzle together, Danni joins forces with the murdered young woman’s father, REDMAN, and the unlikely pair threaten to uncover the sinister truth behind Chris’s death and the secret his murderers had hoped would die with him. As she becomes increasingly mixed up in a dangerous and violent world, and the body count rises, Danni must push herself to her mental and physical limits in order to find justice for her brother and come through this alive.”
Young punks on bike against take on the establishment, hell yeah!
Anyway, the murderous politician from the film looks like Nigel Farage that populist bastard who pushed for Brexit, doesn’t he?
