Dev Patel’s directorial debut Monkey Man is taking its talents from the theater to our homes starting on April 23rd. You’ll be able to rent or own the movie digitally from digital retailers.

From Oscar® winning Producer Jordan Peele (Get OutUsNope) comes Oscar® nominee Dev Patel’s (Slumdog MillionaireLion) astonishing tour-de-force directorial debut, inspired by the legend of Hanuman, an icon embodying strength and courage. Patel stars as a man with no name, scarred by a brutal childhood, who ekes out a meager living in underground fighting rings. But when he finds a way to rise up and infiltrate his city’s corrupt elite, he kicks off an explosive campaign for retribution to settle the score with the men who took everything from him as a boy. Channeling the rage of the poor and powerless, an unexpected hero emerges in this fight-filled action epic.
MONKEY MAN is directed by Dev Patel from his original story and his screenplay with Paul Angunawela and John Collee (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World). Dev Patel stars alongside Sharlto Copley (Hardcore Henry, District 9),  Sobhita Dhulipala (Major, “The Night Manager”), Vipin Sharma (Hotel Mumbai, Gangs of Wasseypur), Sikandar Kher (“24: India,” “Sense8”), and Pitobash Tripathi (Million Dollar Arm, Shor in the City).

Here’s what we had to say in our review of Monkey Man.

Filled with triumphant energy, amazing fight choreography, Monkey Man might be a bit too spiritual, a bit too ethereal for some audiences, but it’s all worth it for the absolutely wild third act. Dev Patel shoots the movie with energy and a feeling that is unmatched these days. You’ll leave Monkey Man feeling like taking on the world.
