“A daft and often delightfully nutty send-up.”

- The Hollywood Reporter




The Heroics Begin On Digital Download And DVD February 1, 2011

Directed by Emmy® and BAFTA® Award-Winner Dick Clement

Featuring BAFTA® Award-Nominee Billy Connolly


Chatsworth, CA – He is dashing, determined, daring, and debonair.  Part aristocrat, part athlete, part amateur sleuth: he is the complete Englishman and an all around good sport. On February 1, 2011 Image Entertainment will release Handmade Films’ Bullshot, a delicious and deliriously funny satire of the gentleman detective who will do anything to protect his country, defeat the always dastardly criminal and save the girl who is always in distress. Available via digital download and DVD, Bullshot is a romp through post-World War I England, depicting a world of high adventure, low life, patriots and villains. SRP is $9.98 for the digital download, and $14.98 for the DVD. Pre-book is January 4.   

Captain Hugh “Bullshot” Crummond (Alan Shearman – Happy FeetEragon) is an Olympic athlete, flying ace, car racer and a suave sleuth. He’s an expert in all brave, masculine pursuits, including the seduction of lovely Rosemary Fenton (Bullshot co-writer Diz White – EragonJackie Chan’s First Strike).  When Bullshot finds out that her scientist father has been abducted by his wartime adversary Count Otto Van Bruno (Ronald E. Law – “L.A. Law”, Escape From New York) nothing will stop him from rescuing Mr. Fenton,  no matter what the cost!

An affectionate parody of the detective stories of the 1930’s, Bullshot is based on the adventures of the popular British hero, Bulldog Drummond. A combination of Monty Python, Austin Powers and Inspector Clouseau, Bullshot is like a bull in a tea shop:  bumbling yet brave, elegant yet slapstick, witty and silly, very British and very, very funny!

I'm sure Image has made a mistake in its listing. Surprised to see released over here after so long.
