Director Guy Ritchie predicted his latest film Revolver would flop on the big screen, but insists it will go on to be a hit DVD.

The movie was slammed by critics and abandoned by cinema-goers, but Ritchie's expectations are matched by the film's distributors who expect it to attain cult status.

Ritchie says, "It was exactly what I anticipated.

"I like to think that something like Revolver has got miles and miles of room for debate, and that's what I want to do as a film director."

ZYGI KAMASA, boss of distributor Redbus, adds, "There are certainly people who hate the movie, but the majority, maybe 70 per cent (of letters we've received), think this is an amazing movie...they don't understand why critics hated it."
