Suburra - new featurette and character posters

The excellent Suburra goes on general release today.

Hidden in the shadows of the Colosseum, the SUBURRA district was the criminal underbelly of Ancient Rome, home to the city’s darkest secrets. In modern times, crime and corruption has spread deep inside the city where everything - even the priesthood - can be bought for a price.

From acclaimed director Stefano Sollima (Gomorrah, Romanzo Criminale and the upcoming Sicario sequel Soldado) and based on the novel co-written by Carlo Bonini & Giancarlo De Cataldo, SUBURRA takes place over seven days leading up to an ‘Apocalypse’ as a former crime boss, known as ‘Samurai’, is instructed by corrupt Mafia families to use his influence to help turn the waterfront of Rome into a new Las Vegas.

Elsewhere, after a night of excess leads to a young girl’s death, politician Filippo Malgradi (Pierfrancesco Favino) becomes pivotal in a chain of events which see him drawn into a web woven by Samurai.

As the countdown to the ‘Apocalypse’ draws to a close, secrets are quickly unravelled as increasingly powerful gangsters become caught in the crossfire. As the city begins to crumble, all those involved must choose to sink or tread water by betraying those closest to them.

Featuring a soaring score by French electronic group M83, SUBURRA also stars Elio Germano (Best Actor at Cannes Film Festival for La Nostra Vita), Greta Scarano (Senza Nessuna Pietà), Alessandro Borghi (Don’t Be Bad, Romanzo Criminale) and Claudio Amendola (La Scorta, Queen Margot). Following the film’s huge domestic success, Netflix has commissioned a 10-part SUBURRA series – the very first Netflix original series from Italy – set to debut on the streaming service in 2017.
