Display screen Media, a Hen Soup for the Soul Leisure firm, introduced as we speak that the upcoming movie ROBERT THE BRUCE will elevate its sword on digital platforms and video-on-demand this April 24, 2020. The historic action-drama was set to cost into North American theaters on June 28, although now that theaters internationally are shuttered because of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, the movie’s theatrical run has been canceled in order to not hold the movie in limbo. The heroic story not solely coincides with the 700th anniversary of the Declaration of Arbroath, when The Bruce declared Scotland a free land, but in addition with the 25th anniversary of Mel Gibson’s BRAVEHEART from which Robert The Bruce picks up the historic timeline. Angus Macfadyen portrays Robert the Bruce in each movies.

ROBERT THE BRUCE is an inspiring story of the braveness of abnormal Scots. When their King is injured and hiding from the English military that controls their lands, a widow and her household nurse him again to well being, risking their lives for the lifetime of their King and their hope for a free Scotland. Defying their clan, which has pledged itself to England, and provoking him to struggle once more, they be a part of The Bruce as he units out to win the long-sought independence of their beloved nation.

Whereas the choice to pivot ROBERT THE BRUCE to a digital launch is sound, I believe it is a disgrace that those that’ve been wanting ahead to the film will not get to expertise it for the primary time on the large display screen. It is potential that when theaters reopen, a particular theatrical presentation of the movie will happen, although with no information as to when it will likely be protected to return to cinemas, it could possibly be some time earlier than something like what I would just proposed can be potential.

Written by Eric Belgau and Angus Macfadyen, ROBERT THE BRUCE is directed by Richard Grey and likewise stars Jared Harris, Anna Hutchison, Patrick Fugit, Zach McGowan, Emma Kenney, Melora Walters, Mhairi Calvey, Kevin McNally, Shane Coffey, and Talitha and Gabriel Bateman. The movie was produced by Grey, Hutchinson, Macfadyen and Nick Farnell with Govt Producers Carter Boehm, Sharon Cox and Mike Gillespie.

ROBERT THE BRUCE will cry freedom on Digital and video-on-demand platforms starting on April 24.
