UK New Film Releases Week 35: 28 August – 3 September 2009

  • New British Feature Films (Fiction) Released in 2009 – 52 [18% of total film releases]
  • Total Film Releases in the UK in 2009 – 293
  • The UK  film release schedule for the week commencing 28 August 2009 is:

    • Broken Embraces (SP)
    • The Final Destination (USA)
    • Funny People (USA)
    • The Hurt Locker (USA)
    • In The Realms Of The Senses (JAP) Reissue 2 September
    • Jetsam (Simon Welsford, 2007, UK) #52 British feature film release 2009
    • Mesrine: Public Enemy Number One
    • (500) Days Of Summer (USA) 2 September

    Jetsam is the first new British feature film release for quite some time, but again it is on limited release and only showing at the ICA, London. Unbelievably made for just £2,500, it received completion and distribution support from Screen South. Most of the reviews seem positive, so it seems strange that it hasn’t reached the screen earlier and wider. Surely there has to be a market for contemporary thrillers that are being compared to Memento?
