Starring Justin Timberlake, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, Bruce Willis, Sharon Stone, Anton Yelchin

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 22, 2007) - Versatile filmmaker NICK CASSAVETES (The Notebook, John Q) directs an impressive group of both young and veteran performers in Alpha Dog-inspired by actual events-a film that follows three fateful days when the lives of a group of Southern California teens suddenly dead-ended.

Johnny Truelove (EMILE HIRSCH) is living the thug wannabe's American dream as a mid-level drug dealer in a comfortable sector of the sprawling, privileged neighborhoods in Los Angeles' San Gabriel Valley. For Johnny, his closest friend Frankie (JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE) and his crew of bros, wannabes and suck-ups their existence is a heady blur of partying and looking for the next thrill. The model of the good life they imitate comes to them from rap music, video games and movies, and they spend their conscious hours copying the thug existence they idolise. Johnny has a wad of cash, a beautiful girl on each arm, a thriving business and plenty of weed to keep all his friends stoned.

Young, flush with money and at the center of their self-created universe-life for Johnny and his friends doesn't come with any consequences. Anything can happen. And over the course of three days under the hot California sun, something does.

ALPHA DOG will open in cinemas across the UK on the 20th April 2006
Certificate 15 / Running Time 123 Minutes
