Reg Traviss has been pleasantly ''shocked'' by the public's reaction to his new movie 'Anti-Social'.

The 38-year-old director of the urban crime thriller has revealed he's been surprised by the response to his film, saying it's unusual for such movies to remain in the cinema for so many weeks.

Asked what he thought about the public's reaction, Reg exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''I was pretty shocked actually, because for the kind of genre it is, no-one really expects films of this sort of genre to last more than about two weeks in the cinema. But it lasted six weeks so we were really happy.

''I think it's always difficult to get people mobilized to go out to the cinema especially when there's so many big, American, corporate, franchise movies which are a lot more appealing to people when they're going out for a night.

''But our audience kept going, and they kept going for six weeks, so we were really happy. We have been really pleased with the reception so far.''

Reg's new movie 'Anti-Social' - which features popular British music acts Devlin and Skepta - is available on Blu-ray and DVD now.
