51st State  

Synopsis

51st State is the story of Elmo McElroy, a streetwise American master chemist, who heads to England to set up his last big deal to introduce a new designer drug to the European market.

McElroy soon becomes embroiled in a web of double dealing as he's escorted around Liverpool's underworld and rave scene by rabid local hood Felix De Souza who hates all things American. The unlikely pair mix punches with punch lines, in this hilarious action comedy from Hong Kong's leading action direction Ronny Yu (Fearless, Freddy vs. Jason), and the whole event comes to an explosive climax at the biggest soccer game of the year.

Starring Academy Award® nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, The Hateful Eight), Emily Mortimer (Shutter Island, Hugo), Meat Loaf (Fight Club, The Rocky Horror Picture Show) and Emmy® Award nominee Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting, Human Trafficking).
