Fans flock to see SHANK premier in London


London is perched on the precipice; the word on the street is about survival. Set in 2015 ‘SHANK’ is a foray into the apocalyptic futuristic vision and probes the underbelly of society.  The modern world as we know it has all but gone.


In this world you either join a gang or become victim. The streets are paved with trouble – know your enemy so that you can uncover their weakness and protect yourself when trouble starts. ‘Your gang is your family, find a crew and stick with them, with no parents to look out for you it’s best not to walk alone if you wanna make’ reads extracts from the  media pack.


Speaking to FLYER Newspaper at the World Premier, Director Mo Ali said: “We had assembled a great cast to work with. They were very dedicated and very receptive to the challenge.”


Fans in Brixton queued for several hours to capture a glimpse of the stars of the film.

The young cast included rising star Kaya Scodelario who appeared on the red carpet with her ‘boyfriend’ Elliot Tittenser from TV hit series Shameless.

Kaya Scodelario (Tasha) is best known as the decadent Effy in E4’s hit series Skins.
