A milestone in British cinema, Chris Morris' Four Lions, released by Optimum Home Entertainment on 30th August 2010, set out to prove that while terrorism might be about ideology, it's also about idiots, a theme that emerged from real life examples and resonated with audiences so perfectly that it has become the most successful British comedy of the year.

In a British city, four men have a secret plan. Omar (Riz Ahmed) is disillusioned about the treatment of Muslims around the world and determines to become a soldier in the mujahdeen. This is the most exciting thing that Waj (Kayvan Novak) has ever heard. Actually it's a no-brainer as Omar does all his thinking for him. Opposed to Omar and almost everyone else on earth is white Islamic convert Barry (Nigel Lindsay). Barry doesn't need "a tramp up a mountain" to tell him how to bring on the end of days. He'll stay behind and channel the wayward expertise of Faisal, who can make a bomb but wants it delivered by a kamikaze crow because he must look after his sick dad who has "started eating newspaper", and Hassan Malik - a student so keen to prove he's for real, he will agree to bomb a mosque to provoke the moderates and bring on the end of days. Together, Omar's crew must strike a decisive blow on their own turf but can any of them strike a match without punching himself in the face?

Four Lions took the festival circuit by storm, premiering at Sundance, followed by sell-out screenings at South by Southwest, Bradford and Nottingham before its UK theatrical release. Aswell as winning the Independent Camera award at the Karlovy Vary Festival it is the only non-Us film to ever win the Best Narrative Feature award at the Los Angeles Film Festival. Immediately dispelling the notion that a comedy about jihadists is a contradiction in terms, Four Lions was a hit with both critics and preview audiences alike, the incredible word of mouth resulting in UK cinemagoers flocking to see the most talked about film of the year.

With a box office total to date of £2,900,000 and still counting, festival awards insert Four Lions arrives on DVD and blu-ray with a host of exclusive extras including deleted scenes, festival footage, interviews and featurettes reflecting the wealth of research undertaken to take on the subject.

Directed by Chris Morris (The Day Today, Brass Eye), co written with Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain (In the Loop, Peep Show), with flawless performances from Riz Ahmed (Shifty, Road to Guantanamo), Kayvan Novak (Fonejacker, Syriana), Nigel Lindsay, Arsher Ali and Adeel Akhtar with Kevin Eldon and Julia Davis in unforgettable cameos, Four Lions finds surprising light and shade in its incendiary subject, tightens to a white knuckle climax and rocks with laughter from start to finish.
