Empire have debuted a new UK poster for Dog Pound. The film, which premiered the Tribeca Film Festival, has been met with acclaim, leading to Optimum Releasing acquiring the UK distribution rights.

Synopsis: Three juvenile delinquents arrive at a correctional center and are put under the care of an experienced guard.

Dog Pound stars Lawrence Bayne, Shane Kippel, Mateo Morales and Adam Butcher and was directed by 30-year-old Kim Chapiron, who was responsible for the 2006 horror feature, Sheitan.

The film resembles that of other prison dramas such as Hunger and A Prophet, with the emphasis this time switching to a juvenile prison, giving a astonishing look at how young people deal with the uncompromising standards of prison.

Dog Pound will hit UK cinemas on August 27, 2010.
