Exclusive poster for British thriller Piggy

Piggy , a British crime thriller, hits cinemas next month, and we’ve got an exclusive poster to reveal.

The film stars Martin Compston ( The Disappearance Of Alice Creed ) and Neil Maskell ( Kill List ), and it doesn’t scrimp on the brutal violence.

Here’s the official synopsis:

" Joe (Martin Compston) is a mild mannered young man bored by his humdrum London life. When his beloved brother (Neil Maskell) is murdered, Joe finds solace in Piggy, one of his brother's old friends. Piggy helps Joe to cope with grief, intent on saving him and helping him get justice for his brother's killing.

As their friendship grows Joe finds himself in an increasing dangerous and murky world of violence and revenge. As Joe’s life collapses around him he starts to question who Piggy really is, and how honest he's really been with him. When Joe confronts Piggy a series of events are put in place that lead to a disastrous climax. "
