Rise of the Footsoldier: Origins trailer released

Rise of the Footsoldier: Origins in cinemas September 3rd. Courtesy of Signature Entertainment. Eagerly awaited British gangster film Rise of the Footsoldier: Origins, starring legendary leading man Vinnie Jones, and directed by Nick Nevern will be showing in UK Cinemas this September. Lock, Stock and Snatch superstar Vinnie Jones teams up with premiere acting veteran Keith Allen (Kingsman, Shallow Grave) for British true crime thriller Rise of the Footsoldier: Origins, a brutal account of how real-life, hard-as-nails Falklands War veteran Tony Tucker (Terry Stone) came to be involved in one of the most notorious gangland murders in British history.

Alongside Vinnie Jones, who plays doorman Bernard O’Mahoney, is Keith Allen who plays the nightclub owner Dave Simms, and British gangster film hardmen Terry Stone (Once Upon A Time In London) Craig Fairbrass (Muscle, Villain), P.H. Moriarty (The Long Good Friday), Billy Murray (McVicar, Essex Boys), plus Michelle Collins (Eastenders), George Russo (Top Dog, Villain), Roland Manookian (RocknRolla, The Football Factory), a cameos from reality TV’s Chris Hughes and the late Heavy D.

When a down-on-his-luck Tony Tucker lands a job as a nightclub doorman after saving the owner’s grandson, he will do whatever it takes to rise to the top of the game. Teaming up with Essex heavyweight Bernard O’Mahoney at the height of the 1980s rave scene, Tucker could do no wrong. A voracious appetite for money, drugs, and a glamorous lifestyle soon develops, fueling his growingly audacious ventures and seeing him join forces with Pat Tate and Craig Rolfe to capitalise on the drug-boom. Packed with fights, revenges, and explosions, the ultimate origin story brings Rise of the Footsoldier full circle, and tackles many of the franchise’s previously unanswered questions.

Directed by Nick Nevern (director and star of The Hooligan Factory and star of popular BBC comedy series Motherland), who co-wrote the script with producer Andrew Loveday, this is a blisteringly good thriller, set against a superbly realised backdrop of the late 80s rave scene, with a pulsing soundtrack featuring the likes of New Order and Ultravox. A future Brit gangster classic that gives the likes of Layer Cake, The Gentlemen and Legend a run for their money. Jam-packed with foul-mouthed and often hilarious dialogue, explosive moments of violence, and a gripping plot that tells it like it happened, Rise of the Footsoldier: Origins is a must-see for anyone after an authentic crime biopic that hits like a knuckle-duster polished to a high shine. This is Blow, Essex style, and it will knock your socks off. Get your tickets front and centre now and prepare to get blasted.

In cinemas from from 3rd September 2021, released by Signature Entertainment.
