Are you in or are you out of Wild Turkey’s Bold Cinema Series at Everyman?

Wild Turkey reveals American Animals as the latest film in The Wild Turkey Bold Cinema Series at Everyman. American Animals is a wildly entertaining true crime thriller, in cinemas nationwide from 7 September. The Wild Turkey Bold Cinema Series at Everyman is a curated choice of original, gutsy films – and cinemagoers watching any of Wild Turkey’s film choices will enjoy a complimentary Wild Turkey 101 Old Fashioned cocktail, delivered direct to their seat ahead of the show. It’s the ideal drink in the ideal setting: bold films, bold taste.

Like Wild Turkey, Everyman has a thirst for getting things right. For Everyman, that means creating the best environment in which to watch the film. For Wild Turkey, it means staying true to the tried and tested methods that have been used since before Prohibition to ensure a big, bold flavour that stands up every time.


American Animals, set in Kentucky, is a great example of a real, raw American classic – the heist movie. This makes it a great partner for a Wild Turkey 101 Old Fashioned – another authentic American classic from Kentucky.

American Animals is a heart pounding thrill ride about four friends who look to inject excitement into their lives by stealing incredibly rare and valuable books from from their college library. This true-to-life heist still ranks as one of the most daring in U.S. history to date. Portrayed by the actors Spencer Reinhard (Barry Keoghan, Dunkirk), Warren Lipka (Evan Peters, X-Men: Apocalypse, American Horror Story), Eric Borsuk (Jared Abrahamson) and Chas Allen (Blake Jenner) – with interjections from the real-life culprits – watch as the film unfolds and the plan takes on a life of its own…

Speaking about the film, Director Bart Layton says, “American Animals isn’t about glamourising a heist – in fact, it’s kind of the opposite. The movie is real, it’s brutal and it’s based on a true story. The plot hasn’t been wildly exaggerated and hasn’t been fictionalised, you are constantly remembering that this is happening in the same world that you and I live and breathe in. And so, because of that, your engagement and investment in the story is heightened.” A bold film needs a bold drink to match. That is why the Wild Turkey 101 Old Fashioned fits the bill; you need a big bourbon that can stand up in terms of flavour. Wild Turkey is aged longer and has a high rye content which creates a bold and spicy taste profile that helps it to sing through the bitters, sugar and ice in an Old Fashioned.

American Animals, brought to you by Wild Turkey and Everyman – “Are you in or are you out?”
