Roger Michell’s The Duke, starring Helen Mirren and Jim Broadbent, begins its journey to home format from the start of next week.

As much as the likes of No Time To Die and Spider-Man: No Way Home have been championed for helping bring people back to cinemas in numbers, don’t overlook what the late Roger Michell’s The Duke has managed to do. The film, that was originally pulled from its cinema release last autumn very late in the way, finally arrived on the big screen at the end of February. And on the quiet, it’s helped itself to a sizeable chunk of change.

The caper, starring Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren, has a UK box office take of just shy of £5m and counting, still in the top ten some five weeks after its release. By way of comparison, it’s outgrossed films such as The Nan Movie, Cyrano and Dog, whilst not being too far off the takings of Jackass Forever.

The film should do even better when it lands on home formats as well, and it’s taking the first step there with its on demand rental release. That’s been announced for April 11th – this coming Monday – on all the usual services.

When we have details of the DVD release, we’ll let you have those too. That’s not likely to be too far behind. In the meantime, the film continues to play in UK cinemas.
