After announcing their intention to bring movies from the cinema to TV through their Dendy Direct streaming video platform, Dendy today has announced the latest movies to make their way to your screens.

Blade of the Immortal, Shot Caller & Sweet Virginia will be the next three titles appearing in Dendy Direct one week after a run in theatres. Called Dendy Marquee, the movies will be available to stream for $19.95 as part of a more sustainable distribution strategy for what Dendy calls ‘niche feature and documentary films’.

Greg Hughes, CEO, Dendy/Icon said of the launch

We’re extremely excited to bring to the Dendy audience, auteur Japanese Director Takashi Miike’s 100th film Blade of The Immortal based on the eponymous manga. We’ve also got two Noirish thrillers Shot Caller and the China brothers film Sweet Virginia both having received strong critical acclaim.

  • BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL follows a highly skilled samurai who becomes cursed with immortality after a legendary battle. Haunted by the brutal murder of his sister, Manji knows that only fighting evil will regain his soul. Releases at Dendy Cinemas from November 16 followed by premium on demand on Dendy Direct from November 22.
  • Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is the SHOT CALLER, a white-collared happily married business professional who commits a crime and is sentenced to prison time. As a newly released prison gangster, the shot caller’s choices will have repercussions, both to himself and his family – especially if he makes the wrong ones. Releases at Dendy Cinemas from October 30 followed by premium on demand on Dendy Direct from December 6.
  • Certified 100% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, SWEET VIRGINIA stars Jon Bernthal as a former rodeo star with a small-time life who unknowingly starts a rapport with a young, violent man. The hero must face his relationships of past and present to come up against this unpredictable predator that has suddenly gripped his small town. Releases at Dendy Cinemas from November 30 followed by premium on demand on Dendy Direct from December 6.

After a recent trip to Dendy, the trailer for Shot Caller was particularly interesting with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, more familiar to most people as Jamie Lannister from Game of Thrones, looks great in this move.

It’s just a shame that it doesn’t work. I raised an issue a while ago and ended up getting a refund as the admitted there android support was broken.

They have since updated the app, but it’s now incompatible with every device I own, two different nexus’s and the shield tv.
