Exclusive: First Poster For Tiger House
Kaya Scodelario crossbows up

The team behind UK home-invasion thriller Tiger House are out in Cannes touting their wares and the film has a new poster to help them do just that. Before it adorns a strategic spot at the festival's film market ('Le Marché du Film', if you want to be all Gallic about it), here's a first glimpse of the film's cast in one-sheet form.

Starring Kaya Scodelario of Skins, Clash Of The Titans and soon The Maze Runner fame, it's putting a spin on the traditional genre ploy of an unlikely schleb searching for the hero inside himself, finding it and using it to beat trespassers upside the head. Here it's the woman - Scodelario's crooked gymnast - who's the hero of the piece and her boyfriend the one in need of rescue.

Unusually, the 'c' in her R.I.C.E. recovery programme seems to stand for 'crossbow' rather than 'compress'. She'll need it judging by the look of ringleader Dougray Scott and his band of desperados, as she seeks to protect her nearest and dearest from harm.

The film has been shooting in Cape Town with debut director Thomas Daley behind the camera and Ill Manors’ Ed Skrein in front of it. Expect it in UK cinemas and, depending on Glass Man Films' Cannes distribution deals, elsewhere, later this year.
