US Release of Robert The Bruce is now set for April 24th across digital platforms as due to Covid-19 theatrical release is impossible with cinemas closed… so now enjoy “at home”.

Robert The Bruce is pivoting from theatrical release to digital platforms. .Screen Media has set the release for APRIL 24TH – full details will follow shortly.

This heroic tale not only coincides with the 700th anniversary of the Declaration of Arbroath, when The Bruce declared Scotland a free land, but also with the 25th anniversary of Braveheart from which Robert The Bruce picks up the historical timeline. Angus Macfadyen portrays Robert the Bruce in both films.

ROBERT THE BRUCE is an inspiring story of the courage of ordinary Scots. When their King is injured and hiding from the English army that controls their lands, a widow and her family nurse him back to health, risking their lives for the life of their King and their hope for a free Scotland. Defying their clan, which has pledged itself to England, and inspiring him to fight again, they join The Bruce as he sets out to win the long-sought independence of their beloved country.

Written by Eric Belgau and Angus Macfadyen, ROBERT THE BRUCE is directed by Richard Gray and also stars Jared Harris, Anna Hutchison, Patrick Fugit, Zach McGowan, Emma Kenney, Melora Walters, Mhairi Calvey, Kevin McNally, Shane Coffey, and Talitha and Gabriel Bateman. The film was produced by Gray, Hutchinson, Macfadyen and Nick Farnell with Executive Producers Carter Boehm, Sharon Cox and Mike Gillespie.
