Hedge your bets on this summer's feel good romantic comedy as Outside Bet arrives on shelves on 30th August 2012 from Universal Pictures UK.

It is 1985: Thatcher is in power, Sade is on the radio and the print workers have gone on strike. But nothing, not even a scale eight earthquake can dishearten a group of close friends that meet every Sunday in their regular South London pub for a pint and free flowing banter of the highest order.

An impressive host of British acting talent including Academy Award® nominee Bob Hoskins (Mona Lisa, Made in Dagenham), BAFTA® winner Jenny Agutter (An American Werewolf in London, Equus) and Phil Davis (Fast Girls, Notes on a Scandal) are joined by relative newcomers Emily Atack (The Inbetweeners), Calum McNab (The Football Factory, The Firm) and Adam Deacon (Anuvahood, Kidulthood).

Set against the backdrop of a changing way of life - as Rupert Murdoch moves the printing of his newspapers from Fleet Street to Wapping - this is a tale of seven firm friends, who embark on a unique journey that eventually leads them to gamble all of their savings and redundancy money on a single race. Sure to charm and based on the semi-autobiographical novel The Mumper by Mark Baxter and Paulo Hewitt, Outside Bet is released on DVD by Universal Pictures (UK) on 20th August 2012.

For Mark and his mates in eighties South London, life doesn't promise much more than a day job at the printers and nights out at the local boozer. But when they're given a chance to buy a young racehorse, Mark sees an opportunity to change everyone's lives forever. After some gentle persuasion, the six lads and their beautiful friend Katie pool their savings and take a gamble on this potential winner. Can 'The Mumper' really go the distance and win Mark the girl of his dreams?

Join Bob Hoskins, Calum Macnab, Jenny Agutter, Emily Atack and a great British supporting cast for a feelgood adventure that beats the odds.

Because sometimes getting what you want, means making an Outside Bet.
