The film poster shows a close-up image of a man with a full beard who looks off to the left. He is wearing a grey hoody with the hood up. The image has been broken up into horizontal slats, distorting the man’s appearance. Across the bottom third of the image, in white text is the film title Tyger.

Tyger (2024) is a road movie which follows an ex-soldier who, upon his release from prison, embarks on a journey to reunite with his family.

Directed by Alexander Milo Bischof (Struck, Trouble Will Find Us), Tyger stars Dylan Edwards (Wanderlust, GameFace) as Joe, Laura Haddock (Guardians of the Galaxy, Transformers: The Last Knight) as Hannah, Ben Aldridge (Our Girl, Pennyworth (2019-2021)) as Sebastian, Natasha O’Keeffe (Peaky Blinders, Misfits) as Maggie and Shaun Dooley (The Woman in Black, Blood Moon (2014)) as Neil.

The lead character’s journey starts in Margate, and filming was undertaken on various Margate roads, as well as at Arlington House, St Austin & St Gregory Church and the Thanet District Council offices. Filming also took place at Canterbury Prison.

Margate is a seaside town complete with sandy beach, harbour, amusement park, period housing and ultra-modern art gallery Turner Contemporary. Arlington House sits on Margate seafront and is an eighteen-storey residential apartment block and a great example of British Brutalist architecture. Other recent productions to have featured Margate include Empire of Light (2023), Dreamland (2023) and Series 4 of Killing Eve (2018-2022).

Now owned by Canterbury Christ Church University, the former Canterbury prison has wings with closed cells dating back to 1808. Though it is no longer available as a filming location, it previously played host to Series 2 of The Larkins (2021-2022), Deceit (2021) and Small Axe (2020) having filmed there.

Tyger (2024) is due to be released on Prime Video, AppleTV+ and the Google store on Monday 12th February 2024.
