New Roddy Piper Film Production


A percentage of all sales go to Doernbecher Children's Hospital

On 31st July 2015 the world lost one of the most recognizable and successful wrestling personalities of all time, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper. A new film production is now available to stream from Nine Legends director David Sinnott which features never before seen footage of "The Hot Rod" titled: "Roddy Piper: In His Own Words". Dig deep inside a forty year career which was spotlighted in the WWE and WCW as well as the big screen, including the lead role in John Carpenter's cult classic, "They Live".



David Sinnott: "This project meant a lot to me to put together. I have fond memories of working with Piper on another project and it didn't sit well with me that so much great footage was locked away in a vault. I recall his daughter was present for the entirety of our film shoot and it was clearly evident that he was a decent family man. It was important for me to connect with Roddy's wife, Kitty Toombs, for input on this project."

Kitty Toombs: "This is Roddy, candid, serious and at times laughing at himself as he digs into some of the psychology and experiences that propelled him in and out of the wrestling arena."

A percentage of all sales will be donated to the Doernbecher Children's Hospital, a hospital which had a special place in Roddy's heart.

Kitty Toombs: "Roddy saw first hand during his decades in Portland, Oregon the groundbreaking, good work being done at the Doernbecher Children Hospital. Throughout the years he loved giving time volunteering as a celebrity during fundraisers but even more so, just stopping by to roam the halls and chat with the children. He shared with his family how those kids were the real heroes and what they gave him was far more than they ever realized."

Roddy Piper: In His Own Words is available to stream now at www.ninelegendsfilm.com for $7.99, which includes access to "Nine Legends", starring Bill Goldberg, Mike Tyson and Chris Jericho.

The Florida Project - New Trailer and Poster


THE FLORIDA PROJECT, one of the breakout hits of Cannes, has been set for a 10th November 2017 release date in the UK and Ireland, by distributor Altitude Film Distribution.

Directed by Sean Baker, and co-written with Chris Bergoch, The Florida Project is Baker’s follow up to his 2015 award winning feature Tangerine, which he also co-wrote with Bergoch.

The Florida Project tells the story of Moonee (Brookynn Prince), a precocious six-year- old and her ragtag group of friends.  The children’s summer break is filled with wonder, mischief and adventure while the adults around them struggle with hard times.

The story takes place just outside of Orlando, the vacation capital of the world and home to “The Most Magical Place on Earth.”  Along the main highway that runs through the land of theme parks and resorts, budget motels that once attracted tourists by exploiting the Disney mystique, now house homeless families.

Moonee and her twenty-two year old mother, Halley (Bria Vinaite), live at one such establishment — The Magic Castle Motel.  The closest thing Moonee has to a father is Bobby (Willem Dafoe), the motel’s manager, a guarded and diligent man who is taunted by the children’s antics.  Halley has lost her job and a new girl the same age as Moonee has moved in at the motel next door - it's going to be an eventful summer.

June Pictures presents A Cre Film & Freestyle Pictures Company Production. Produced by Sean Baker, Chris Bergoch, Kevin Chinoy, Andrew Duncan, Alex Saks, Francesca Silvestri, Shih-Ching Tsou and executive produced by Darren Dean.

Running time: 112min    Certificate: TBC

The Very Best of Josh Hartnett


Josh Hartnett is halfway up a mountain. He can barely see his hand in front of his face, so heavy is the snow battering him from all sides. He’s playing Eric LeMarque in his latest movie, the thrilling true story of survival against the odds that is 6 Below (in cinemas from October 13th) and whilst he knows he’s delivering a powerhouse performance he can’t help but think that maybe it’s about time he picked something a little easier next time. You see, however brilliant Hartnett is (and he always is), he doesn’t give himself the easiest of times on film sets, something this handy retrospective goes some way to proving...

Halloween H20 (1998)
Original scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis returns to the genre that defined her early career in this blistering return to force for the original slasher franchise. Having faked her own death, Laurie Strode is now the headmistress of a secluded private school, hitting the bottle and driving her rebellious son (an early heartthrob role for Hartnett) to despair with her over-protective schtick and an obsession with her dead brother, Michael. But when that brother is Michael Myers and, oh yeah, he’s not dead at all, her paranoia just might be justified. Hartnett provides a square jaw and, fittingly given his lineage, a propensity towards surviving but sadly he didn’t crop up in any further sequels (although Jamie Lee is back, back, back for the forthcoming reboot so there are reasons to be cheerful).

The Faculty (1998)
Having burst onto the scene in Halloween H20, Hartnett took a gig working alongside Robert Rodriguez (From Dusk Till Dawn, Planet Terror) on another modern horror classic in the form of The Faculty. As part of an ensemble cast that included Elijah Wood, Usher, Clea Duvall and Jordana Brewster, Hartnett starred as Zeke, one of a clutch if disparate high school students who notice that there’s something very wrong with their teachers (including genre stalwarts Piper Laurie (Carrie), Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day) and Famke Janssen (X-Men)). What they don’t initially realise, however, is that said teachers have been replaced by be-tentacled aliens hell-bent on taking over the rest of Smalltown, USA. Played for laughs as much as for thrills, The Faculty did brisk business in multiplexes, establishing Hartnett as heartthrob du jour.

The Virgin Suicides (1999)
Just by looking at the guy, Josh Hartnett clearly has all the attributes to play the movie heartthrob. But what better role to display those qualities than in the fierce and provocative feature debut of Sofia Coppola, a director who would later become a powerhouse in independent cinema. Josh plays dreamy eyed, six pack flaunting Trip Fontain, who has a short-lived romance with Kirsten Dunst’s character, Lux, who the film follows during her school year as she attempts to get over the suicide of her younger sister whilst simultaneously trying to escape the clutches of her strict parents. Following this smart and intriguing breakout performance there was no stopping Hartnett from becoming Hollywood’s next superstar!

Black Hawk Down (2001)
After breaking out onto the Hollywood scene, Hartnett was offered one of the most defining roles of his career so far, in Ridley Scott’s modern war epic Black Hawk Down. The film follows a team of soldiers dropped in to civil war-torn Mogadishu, Somalia, in an effort to kidnap two of local crime lord Mohamed Farah Aidid's top lieutenants. When two of the mission's Black Hawk helicopters are shot down by enemy forces, the Americans -- committed to recovering every man, dead or alive -- stay in the area too long and are quickly surrounded. Hartnett plays one of the many soldiers in the film that has to battle his way out of the centre of Mogadishu under heavy, heavy fire. He also gives a very moving speech at the film’s climax about heroism, leaving many a war-movie fan in the cinema teary-eyed.

Pearl Harbor (2001)
Michael Bay’s wartime epic and Box Office smash, Pearl Harbor, cemented what was a blistering year for Josh Hartnett. But perhaps more importantly, it provided a vehicle for the ultimate All American Male pairing of Hartnett and Ben Affleck, sending teenage girls across the globe running for the Blu-Tac to adorn their bedroom walls with posters of the pair. In the film, Hartnett plays Captain Danny Walker who, along with his childhood friend, Rafe McCawley (Ben Affleck) serve in the US Eagle Squadron which becomes drawn into the battle of Pearl Harbor; the trigger for the US joining WWII. Ahead of the battle, Rafe meets Nurse Evelyn (played by Kate Beckinsale) and the pair begins a tentative relationship before Rafe is drawn away into combat. Cue complicated – and emotional – love triangle... Whilst not received too well by critics the film was a hit, taking $450 million at the Box Office and proving that Hartnett was fast-becoming one of Hollywood’s most commercially bankable actors.

Lucky Number Slevin (2001)
With Hartnett now established as Leading Man Material, he had his pick of the roles. In this Guy-Richie-esque gangster flick, he plays a man who gets embroiled in a dangerous series of events after being mistaken for the very man he is visiting in The Big Apple. With his wallet stolen and unable to prove his identity, Slevin is forced to step up his desperate search for his friend and reclaim his identity before he's forced to pay a debt that could cost him his life. With Hartnett starring opposite some of the film scene’s biggest players (including Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman), he comfortably holds his own, proving he is a force to be reckoned with.

30 Days of Night (2007)
Another truly terrible day for Hartnett results in another great movie for his audience as he fends off a horde of really nasty vampires in the acclaimed, unremittingly bleak interpretation of the comic book of the same name. From the get go Hartnett’s good guy is up against it as the long northern night falls on the Alaskan town he protects as it’s sheriff. The snow might not be quite up to 6 Below proportions but the feral monsters he has to tackle more than make up for that, as does one of modern horror cinema’s most effective but downbeat endings...

Penny Dreadful (2014 – 2016)
A versatile man of many talents, Hartnett once again catches the eye in another unconventional piece, starring as Ethan Chandler, a troubled sharpshooter turned monster-hunter in TV series Penny Dreadful. Executive-produced by Sam Mendes (Spectre) and written by John Logan (Skyfall), Penny Dreadful is a dark and disturbing mash-up of many of Victorian literature’s most scary monsters, including Frankenstein’s Creature, Count Dracula and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. It emerges that Ethan has a dark side as well; when there is a full moon, he metamorphoses into a werewolf. Making a formidable team alongside Eva Green in the role of temptress Vanessa Ives, Hartnett proves that he can play any role a casting director throws at him – man or beast!


6 Below (2017)
As you can see from the above examples, Josh Hartnett is no stranger to playing a man in great peril, and that is no different for this latest venture into getting himself into a bit of a pickle. In Scott Waugh’s 6 Below he plays real life subject Eric LeMarque; a thrill-seeking ex-Olympic hockey player and keen snowboarder with the weight of personal demons on his back. When he gets lost in a massive winter storm in the back country of the High Sierra Mountains, LeMarque is pushed to the limit and forced to battle those demons head-on as he fights against the worst the elements can throw at him. With Hartnett well and truly made to suffer for taking the risk of going off piste (quite literally and in the broader sense of his career), this epic survival thriller is sure to grip fans old and new when it opens in cinemas this Friday.

6 BELOW is in cinemas and on demand from October 13th, 2017

Ultimate Justice - Out now on DVD


Vision Films proudly presents Ultimate Justice, a film with non-stop action, kick-ass martial arts fighting sequences, and more explosions than a July 4th celebration. Directed by Martin Christopher Bode and written by Marco Theiss, Ultimate Justice is the ultimate in action entertainment.  Vision’s DVD label is distributed through Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Starring Mark Dacascos (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Hawaii Five-0, Iron Chef America),  Matthias Hues (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Dark Angel), Mike Möller (Cloud Atlas), Brandon Rhea (Infernal Affairs 2, Push) the explosive and suspenseful Ultimate Justice is as much about vengeance as it is about teamwork and comradery.

A team of former elite soldiers are drawn back into action when the daughter of their former commander is kidnapped. Vowing vengeance on those responsible, they use all tools they have available—weaponry, martial arts, brute force and technology. The mission to track down the force behind the kidnapping causes the team to sacrifice their lives to uncover the truth, save the daughter and deliver justice.

Martial Arts enthusiast Ruediger W. Kuemmerle financed the project, which, although being based in China, he filmed in his hometown of Goeppingen, Germany with local crew.  It is Kuemmerle’s second feature film under his production banner Silent Partners.  His first film is the just recently released “One Million K(l)icks”.  Kuemmerle is currently in pre-production on the sequel, which will also star Mark Dacascos.

Ruediger W. Kuemmerle says, “Ultimate Justice would not have been possible without an incredible young, ambitious and truly talented crew and the support of Mark Dacascos, a true hero of the martial arts industry and a personal hero whose films I grew up watching. The same for Matthias Hues, a great actor and true friend. After a lengthy post-production process we could not be happier with the final result and we are extremely pleased to partner with Vision Films who supported significantly in the final stages.”

Managing Director / CEO of Vision Films Lise Romanoff says, “Ultimate Justice is solid entertainment, non-stop action with a compelling story. The motto of the Ultimate Justice team is Vivere Militare Est, translation is “To Live is to Fight!” Action fans across the world will love it”

Vision Films is proud to present MURDER ON THE CAPE, based on the 2002 Cape Cod murder of Christa Worthington.  Written and directed by Arthur Egeli, MURDER ON THE CAPE is a stunning and deeply human retelling of the case that shocked the nation.

The film stars Jade Harlow (Passions, The Bay), Josh Walther (Eugene O’Neill: Art as Life), Chris Lazzaro (Jersey Shore Massacre), Heather Egeli (Ghost Forest ) and Tim Misuradze (The Young and The Restless).

She returns two years later with his child looking to rekindle their love. When she is found murdered, a mystery unfolds within the tight-knit community, shedding doubt on the prime suspect’s guilt.

“The heart of the story is that there were all these personal struggles that you don’t see in a documentary about the crime”, director Arthur Egeli says. “You don’t get to see how everything affects each other”.

ADDicted Available on DVD/VOD on October 3


Vision Films proudly presents ADDicted, the ground-breaking feature film that explores the addictive nature and abuse of the ADD prescription drug, Adderall in the American college system. Written and directed by Dan Jenski and produced by Lightning in a Bottle Productions, ADDicted is a genuine, empathetic and dramatic wake up call.

Starring Kathleen Quinlan (Apollo 13, Event Horizon), Gil Bellows (The Shawshank Redemption, Criminal Minds), Luke Guldan (The Good Place, Law & Order), Lauren Sweetser (Winter’s Bone, NCIS: Los Angeles) and Taylor Black (Midnight, Texas, Lucifer), ADDicted brings to light the illicit and highly dangerous use of the prescription medication that two-third’s of college students have been offered at one time or another.

ADDicted will be available on October 3, 2017 on Digital for a SRP $4.99 - $9.99 Rent or Buy across all platforms and to Buy on DVD for $14.95.

Like most college kids, Drew’s life is chaotic. Demanding classes. Football. Finals. A bad break-up. An overbearing mother. But what helps keep him balanced is his Adderall, a prescription he's been on since age 10 for ADD. But now he finds himself suspended from the football team for plagiarism. As his life starts to spiral out of control, he turns to his professor, but is it too late? What will it take for Drew to find peace with himself instead of a pill bottle?

Writer/director Dan Jenski first envisioned his debut feature film when he was in college and saw first-hand the drug becoming more prevalent, as his friends would go to extreme measures to obtain it. After he discovered the dangers of Adderall, he wrote ADDicted to send a very important message.

“As you hear about people who have been affected and their stories, and you hear statistics about the people on it and the sales, you start to see that there is something going on here and feel really impassioned to speak about something deeper” says Jenski. “I just feel that a lot of people need help balancing themselves, being healthy and making the right decisions. Not being so stressed. Adderall is a very intense drug that people become addicted to because it allows them to sustain a level that wouldn’t normally be sustained.I just want to help people help themselves with this”.

Brian Cox Retrospective



Long held as one of our finest actors, Brian Cox (the weathered, gruff Scottish genius thesp as opposed to the leggy, grinning genius physicist, let’s get that out of the way first) is embedded in the minds of cinephiles everywhere thanks to a lengthy career littered with indelible performances. Not least of these is his turn as greatest Briton Winston Churchill in, well, Churchill, arriving on digital platforms, Blu-ray and DVD from October 16th, courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment UK, but we’ve decided to delve a little deeper into Cox’s career to unearth some more of his finest hours:

Churchill (2017)
Jonathan Teplitzky’s beautifully shot drama examines the 96 hours leading up to the Normandy Landings during World War Two, focusing on Churchill’s internal struggles with his conscience as well as his increasing search for relevance in a government trying to sideline him. Placing such a short space of time under a microscope rather than going for the full biopic treatment gives Cox the chance to add nuance to a character so often portrayed as a ball of bombast and bluster. A career-best performance if ever there was one, Cox shines alongside a similarly peerless cast of supporting stars that includes Miranda Richardson, John Slattery and James Purefoy.

RED 2 (2013)
If Churchill sees Cox deliver a masterclass in studied nuance, RED 2 is him showing everyone how to throw a party. Starring brilliantly as a Russian spy, Cox is clearly having the time of his life in this geriatric action thriller that sees Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and John Malkovich star as espionage old timers pulled back into the fray by an unhinged bomb maker (Anthony Hopkins, naturally). Whether he’s rescuing our heroes from a firing squad or kissing Mirren’s feet as she takes pot shots at the villains, Cox, replete with a velvet hat and a cheeky grin, is having a ball and it’s frankly infectious.

The Bourne Identity (2002)
Diverse as Cox is as a performer, he can do double-dealing bureaucrat better than almost anyone, something he demonstrated with aplomb across The Bourne Identity and The Bourne Supremacy. As the brilliantly American-sounding Ward Abbott, Cox was the puppetmaster behind the Treadstone programme and ultimately, in a sense, the creator of Jason Bourne: killing machine. Doesn’t stop him being as oily as they come, mind, or as cowardly, with Cox convincing at every turn.

X-Men 2 (2002)
It’s de rigueur for British thesps to take the lead as villains, a trend that pre-dates even the Bond films. Cox, however, took a slightly different direction when he debuted in the X-Men universe in the first sequel, starring as a US army general, William Stryker, singlehandedly responsible for the creation of walking razor blade Wolverine, as well as for nearly wiping out all mutants by harnessing his son’s telekinetic powers and Charles Xavier’s supercomputer. Obviously. Cox convinces amid all the heightened sci-fi drama to create one of the series most memorable villains and someone deftly able to match the on-screen might of the likes of Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen.

Manhunter (1986) 
It’s easy to forget that before Hannibal Lector there was Hannibal Lektor – Thomas Harris’s psychotic cannibal originally being portrayed by Cox in Michael Mann’s brilliantly 80s take on the first novel in the Silence Of The Lambs series, Red Dragon. Although the role was bolstered in the later remake that brought the story into Anthony Hopkins’ pantheon, Manhunter sees Lektor pop up for little more than a nevertheless mesmerising cameo. Cox plays Lektor as a little more urbane, a little more accessible, but no less terrifying. Essential viewing.

Churchill is available on digital platforms, Blu-ray and DVD from October 16th courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment UK


The ‘Special Relationship’ on Film



On February 16th, 1944, ahead of one of the biggest turning points in World War II -the Normandy Landings- British Prime Minister Winston Churchill said it was his "deepest conviction that unless Britain and the United States are joined in a special relationship… another destructive war will come to pass". Since then it’s fair to say that said relationship has had its ups, downs and various controversies. The world of cinema has not missed a second of it, adapting its most fascinating moments to the big screen.

The latest is World War II drama Churchill, in which Winston Churchill (played brilliantly by Brian Cox) and President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s (John Slattery) tussle for control over plans for the D-Day Landings represent a microcosm of their countries’ broader relationship. With the DVD and Blu-ray out on October 16th, there’s no better time to look back at some of the best films to have given their take on this ‘Special Relationship’.

In The Loop (2009)
Armando Iannucci’s ferocious and satirical take on Anglo-American political relations is as hilarious as it is thought provoking. Loosely based on Iannucci’s BBC sitcom The Thick of It (2005-12) –and including a reprisal of Peter Capaldi’s vicious, demonic, swearing mastermind of a spin doctor Malcolm Tucker from that very show- In The Loop looks at the political handling of a national crisis in the form of an unspecified Middle East war. Particular focus is given to the crucial role played by behind-the-scenes string-pullers on both sides, as well as an abundance of political impotence. This mockumentary satire punches as hard as it tickles, and as the crisis unfolds and the political string-pullers start flapping, we are left wondering how true-to-life these characters are...

Frost/Nixon (2008)
Frost/Nixon brilliantly documents the time when a British late-night TV show host by the name of David Frost (Michael Sheen) interviewed the most controversial president to ever take office; Richard Nixon (Frank Langella). Set in 1977, a full 3 years after Nixon resigned from office in disgrace, the former president agrees to an interview with Frost who he is certain that he can hold his own against, with even Frost's own people not quite sure their boss was ready for such a high-profile challenge. However when the cameras rolled, what emerged was an unguardedly honest exchange between a man who had lost everything and another with everything to gain.

The Inglourious Basterds (2009)
Quentin Tarantino’s second world war-western very much focuses on a rag-tag group of Jewish, American soldiers, banded together by the shared passion for scalping Nazi’s. But to pull off their pièce de résistance of foiling German plans, they require the help of their Brit allies in the form of the much caricatured Mike Myers and Michael Fassbender, who they use in an attempt to infiltrate the Nazi camp to uncover key info. The relationship is shown to be slightly frosty when they first meet, but eventually the Brits and the Yanks put aside their differences to focus on a shared enemy. Very much a specified example of the relationship in general, we feel.

Citizenfour (2014)
This Oscar-winning documentary about hero/traitor (depending where you stand on the matter) Edward Snowden explores a much darker side to the ‘Special Relationship’ and what can happen when the partnership goes undercover. Directed by Laura Poitras, who was several years into making a film about surveillance in the post-9/11 era when she started receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as "citizen four", was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by the NSA and GCHQ. In June 2013, she flew to Hong Kong to document a meeting with the man who turned out to be Snowden, and the film that resulted from this turns into a gripping real-life thriller of Snowden attempting to escape the wrath of the panic stricken US and UK surveillance agencies.

The Patriot (2000)
Roland Emmerich’s The Patriot takes a step back in time to look at a period before the British/American relationship started to blossom, and the revolution that pre-dates any kind of amicable co-operation. The film follows Mel Gibson’s farmer, Benjamin Martin in South Carolina, who joins the fight against the British after his son is captured and sentenced to hang, and *spoilers* the revolution ends up being pretty successful, and the red coats limping back across the pond for good. The film was the first to be made with the cooperation of the Smithsonian Institute, which advised on historical accuracy. As such, the film serves as a cutting reminder of the burning of the metaphorical bridge between the Atlantic, but also a demonstration of how a new, special bond was formed from the ashes.

CHURCHILL IS AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL DOWNLOAD OCTOBER 9TH AND ON BLU-RAY AND DVD OCTOBER 16th 2017


Terror Tales - Trailer


When Michael wakes up he is horrified to find that he is riding shotgun with a psychopath (Christopher Showerman- CBS Supergirl) who reveals to him that his wife and daughter are held captive in the attached cargo trailer. The trailer is rigged to release a deadly toxin when triggered by a switch in the car. Thinking of his family’s safety, he cooperates with everything the psychotic driver asks him to do even if it means breaking the law.

During this bizarre ride, the driver subjects Michael to three horrific tales of the macabre including a demon that takes a mother (Lynn Lowry- George Romero’s The Crazies, David Cronenberg’s Shivers) on a journey of self discovery and reveals to her the horrifying truth behind her son’s suicide. The next tale transpires in the '80s where a Detective is hot on the trail of a serial killer known as The Sledgehammer (Jonathan Tiersten- Sleepaway Camp) who is terrorizing a video store owner and his wife. In the final tale, an evil deity (Yan Birch- Wes Craven's The People Under the Stairs) is using the human body as a host to possess its victims. When the deity destroys one victim it jumps to another causing an epidemic of possessions being reported.

With a burning desire for the truth behind his abduction and the safety of his family, will Michael have the will to survive the madness? Your sanity will be tried and tested in Terror Tales.

Wild Eye Releasing and Horror Boobs host Wing Weng event on Friday the 13th!

BURBANK, CALIFORNIA - This Fall director Andrew Leavold takes the Americas by storm with a tour to support the release of his book and DVD The Search for Weng Weng. Follow in detail the amazing journey of one man's obsession with exposing the truth behind the two-foot-nine James Bond of the Philippines. Join Leavold at one of his two New York appearances on Friday October 13 and Sunday October 14 in New York.

It sounds like the bizarre plotline of one of Leavold’s most favoured cult films, but in the case of his documentary feature The Search For Weng Weng, reality does indeed kick fiction in the nuts, then runs between its legs. With Weng Weng’s real story buried under more than thirty years of faulty memories, urban myths and forgotten pop culture, it seemed a Herculean task. Was he really a black belt, super-spy, stunt king, ladies’ man, living saint, and plaything of the Marcos family? What was his real name, how many films did he make, and was he possibly still alive?

It took Leavold seven years to complete the film, against seemingly impossible odds, and then screen the film all over the world, including Weng Weng’s front yard.

But that was just the start of the story. This book is the definitive search for Weng Weng, an even wilder and woollier tale told by the film-maker himself, as he travels from Imelda Marcos’ birthday party to the poorest slums of Manila, on the trail of one the Philippines’ most unlikeliest heroes – and most heartbreaking stories.

Weng Weng’s tale of exploitation, greed, and fragile humanity is pieced together fragment by tantalizing fragment, all the while revealing a detailed, never-before-told history of the Filipino Action Film, as told by a cast of actors, stuntmen, Weng Weng’s family and colleagues, historians, midget waiters, and Imelda herself. Plunging head-first into the heart and soul of the Philippines’ culture and history, Leavold also tells his own story of transforming his own life from fan to film-maker, all the while experiencing the most surreal adventure of a lifetime.

It’s part detective story and midget bio, part gonzo travelogue, part Filipino B Film history lesson, and part magical Quest for the Holy Grail – if the Grail is a two foot nine James Bond of the Philippines.


EVENT SCHEDULE :

Friday October 13th 7PM

Forbidden Planet and Wild Eye Releasing are proud to present The Search for Weng Weng DVD and Book release party with director/writer Andrew Leavold! Hang out with Andrew in an intimate setting, pick up a copy of The Search for Weng Weng book or DVD, and get it signed.

Conor McGregor: Notorious - First Trailer


IN CINEMAS WORLDWIDE FROM WEDNESDAY 1 NOVEMBER

Follow one of sport’s most unforgettable journeys as the unflinching and brutally honest documentary, CONOR McGREGOR: NOTORIOUS, arrives in cinemas worldwide Wednesday 1 November.

Boxing since the age of 12, Dublin-born Conor McGregor has gone from a plumbing apprenticeship and a life on benefits to being the current UFC Lightweight Champion and the biggest fight sports star in the world. Just 29 years old and a pro-fighter since 2008, with 18 wins by knock out under his belt, McGregor is an icon to his faithful fans who remain absorbed by his peerless skill, his fearless attitude and his infamous swagger. Much more than that though, McGregor is a personality who is hard to ignore and is admired within and without the world of UFC for his unrivalled passion, dedication and commitment.

CONOR McGREGOR: NOTORIOUS, filmed over the course of 4 years, is a gripping access-all-areas account of McGregor’s personal and professional journey from claiming benefits and living in his mum’s spare room with his girlfriend to claiming multiple championship belts and 9-figure pay packets. Featuring exclusive interviews, unprecedented access and fight footage, this is the ultimate behind-the-scenes look at a sporting icon and his meteoric rise.

Following McGregor from his transition as a largely unknown fighter to the status he currently enjoys, the film includes highlights from throughout his career including winning the UFC championship belt in just 13 seconds and his shock loss to rival Nate Diaz, culminating in his recent foray into the world of boxing and his record-breaking Las Vegas bout against Floyd Mayweather.

With all the controversy, candour and steely-eyed self-belief we’ve come to expect, CONOR McGREGOR: NOTORIOUS offers an unprecedented glimpse into the public and private life of a man considered a hero by fans across the globe. A window into the world of one of sport’s true individuals, this is timely, essential viewing.

Directed by Gavin Fitzgerald, CONOR McGREGOR: NOTORIOUS is produced by Jamie D’Alton for Motive Films.

Interview with Avery Kristen Pohl - Star of "Watch Over Us"


The Exorcist meets Stranger Things in writer-director  F.C. Rabbath’s Watch Over Us premiering on digital this September.

Avery Kristen Pohl (“The Glades”), Ella Schaefer (“Criminal Minds”), and Daniel Link (Krampus Unleashed) headline the frightening story of a family having to face a paranormal force on a farm.

A father and his young daughters move onto their grandfather’s secluded farm following the breakup of their parents. But once there, they are soon plagued by paranormal events that reveal a deadly secret that has haunted the family for generations, and an evil force that demands they uphold a deadly promise made by their ancestors.

Available on digital VOD everywhere nationwide 9/12/17.


Q:Your latest role screams ‘girl power’! how does it feel to be playing a role model to so many young girls in a movie like this?

A: I love these types of characters as they easily relate to so many women that I know in my life. My generation of girls is being raised not to be afraid to use our voices. We need to do it respectfully to be taken seriously. We are being shown that utilizing the strength and power our talents and voices have can change the world, hopefully for the better. Having films show this reality is vital to the progression towards equality.


Q:Would you say this is the first role in which you’ve been able to do that – play a positive role model for young ladies? 

A: Many of the roles I have played in short films have been strong, smart, vibrant, sassy types. I have also played “the doormat” in a few and the bitchy mean girl more than once. Every role has its place in the story but it’s always nice when your character has positive things to offer the audience.


Q:Would you agree there’s a real shortage of strong female roles in Hollywood? 

A: Yes. I also see progress, especially in the last five years. We still have a long way to go and if we can continue that and have it expand to all aspects of production for women we are going to see some amazing things happen in film over the next few years. There are so many extremely talented women writers, cinematographers, editors, production designers, etc.. I am excited for what is to come and to be a part of it.


Q:Tell us about F.C’s approach to writing strong young women. Eliza seems like such a rare, empowering character – what a wonderful opportunity for an actress? 

A: This is part of the progress I mentioned. The fact that men are writing these parts as a matter of course in their films shows that women can be strong without being dismissed as just bitchy. Our strength has value and merit and I think that Fred shows that about women consistently in his writing. Just one of the reasons I like his projects.


Q:How did you work with F.C on set? Was he encouraging? a real actor’s director?

A: Fred is always great on set. He is smart, funny and encouraging. Fred has a very definite concept of his characters and how he wants them portrayed. He guides you to that performance by giving you his perception of your character’s thought processes and history.


Q:Has the movie opened up doors for you to do other horror movies?

A: Absolutely! Seeing the creative process to make things scary made me much more open to working in this genre. Actually hoping for more opportunities to do that.

Thank you for joining us today.
Available on digital VOD everywhere nationwide 9/12/17.
