Revolver CEO Justin Marciano said: “At Revolver we want to focus on great films that will surprise, challenge and provoke discussion as well as generate a few laughs, rather than on carving out any particular niche for the sake of it. We’re not afraid to mix it up, with a blend of sci-fi comedy and music documentary among our latest crop.”
