As we get closer to our release date on Feb 17th (less than a month away!), you’re going to start seeing this brand spanking new poster popping up:

Why the new poster? Well it’s got: Monsters! Babes! Hunky dudes! Lightning! Guns! Everything you’d need to catch the eye of someone cruising the aisles at their local Walmart, Redbox, etc.

We’ll still be using our old, grindhouse poster as well, but don’t be confused when you see this one show up in places too!

And holy smokes there’s going to be a lot of news happening in the next few weeks.  Follow us on Facebook, twitter and youtube for all the updates!

 

Ithaca is Gorges and also now has Monsters there too

January 13, 2015

More good news, everybody – Love in the Time of Monsters is now scheduled for yet another theatrical screening, this time in my hometown of Ithaca, New York.

Through the Ithaca International Fantastic Film Festival (and with a little love from Cornell Cinema), Love in the Time of Monsters is going to play during a IIFFF-created event, “Fantastic Film Friday”, at the always awesome underground theatre, Cinemapolis.  I remember going to Cinemapolis as a kid all the time and seeing some of the best indie cinema ever – The Blair Witch Project was an especially fun night – so we’re super proud to have Love in the Time of Monsters make it’s way onto their big screen!

Love in the Time of Monsters will play one night only – Friday, January 23rd, at 9:30pm.  There will even be a nice Q&A after the screening with yours truly, so make sure to stick around and ask super easy questions.  The date is coming up super soon, so don’t wait, get your tickets here!

On a personal note, I’m crazy excited that the Ithaca International Fantastic Film Festival not only exists, but is going strong in it’s 3rd year!  Judging from their past catalogue they are bringing some amazing pieces of cinema to town so it’s very exciting to see it grow.

One relevant and funny thing about Ithaca is that it was actually a huge site for film production before Hollywood, CA even got into the game.  During the early 1900s the Wharton Studio shot a ton of silent movies in the area because it looked so darn beautiful.  Then, I think the winters scared everybody away.  But hey, at least they got some pretty great footage of trollies crashing into gorges …

Distribution Date Confirmed, and a Trailer Too!

January 12, 2015

Big News, everyone – we are very happy to announce that Love in the Time of Monsters is scheduled for domestic distribution on February 17th, 2015!

That means any American can click through iTunes, peep their local Redbox, or possibly even cruise down to the nearest Walmart and pick themselves up a copy of Love in the Time of Monsters for their very own.  That’s right, we’re Industry Legit!

And to celebrate, we’d like to share with you the Official Love in the Time of Monsters Trailer, full of never-before-promoted footage from the movie –

The distribution deal was struck with Indican Pictures, the company who also represented the super-stylized cult classic Boondock Saints, as well as the horror-comedy Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead.  They’re going to make sure that LitToM is available in as many places as possible.  And believe me, the DVDs are going to be seriously worth it – they’re jam-packed with behind-the-scenes documentaries, bloopers, extras, commentary, and even a hard-rocking music video.  That’s one for the shelves, for sure.

It’s been a long and wild ride making this film, and to get it to this point is just the best feeling.  So, help us celebrate!  Spread the word about Love in the Time of Monsters coming out on February 17th, and you may as well go ahead and plan on a Movie Night shortly thereafter.

January 2, 2015

Happy 2015, everyone!  

Hope everyone had a safe and fun New Year’s.  Back on the LitToM side of things, we’ve got a couple of great pieces of news for you …

First off, the Manhattan Premiere of Love in the Time of Monsters has officially been confirmed through Tugg!  We’re incredibly grateful to everyone who bought tickets and helped to spread the word, y’all are the bee’s knees.  Looks like all those posted flyers and facebook shares really paid off!  You can also still join us, East Coast Friends, because tickets will be available to buy through Tugg until a couple hours before the actual screening on Jan. 7th.

We’re also very pleased to announce that our very own Marla, the lovely actress Gena Shaw, will be in attendance at the Manhattan Screening as well!  You may have seen Gena in the TV shows Revenge, Granite Flats, and The Vampire Diaries.  She’s definitely going to pretty-up the Q&A, that’s for sure.

Finally, we’re extremely honored to have some representatives from Troma Entertainment coming to enjoy the movie as well!  You all know Troma from creating such cult classics as Toxic Avenger, Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D., and Tromeo and Juliet (James Gunn‘s first writing credit!).  They are as independent as independent cinema can get, and they have a damn fun time doing it.

So all in all, this Manhattan Screening is shaping up to be a darn fine event!  And even if you can’t join us there, make sure to subscribe to Uncle Slavko’s Blog with the button on the right, and follow us on facebook, twitter, and YouTube.

Bay Area Bound!

December 11, 2014

Airport food is weird.

Breakfast of Champions!

Breakfast of Champions!

Not that it’s bad, but it’s not particularly good either.  But the best part about it?  It means I’m about to go someplace new.  (Because honestly, who would eat at an airport if they didn’t have to? GUH!)

Today’s sojourn is to San Francisco for our screening tonight at Another Hole in the Head.  I’m super excited to go and enjoy what looks to be our final domestic festival screening.  But really, any excuse to head up to the bay area is a good one.

There’s Nothing I Don’t Love About This Poster

And it looks like the city is rolling out the welcome wagon for me by hosting the biggest storm in recent memory.  So, if you’re looking for a way to stay out of the rain while still getting out of the house, you should come say hi to me Japantown.

The screening’s at 7pm and will be followed by Aliens after a QnA of indeterminate length with yours truly.  Come for the movie, stay for the dirty secrets about Andy Gunn’s morning routine.*

Here’s the link with more information.

I promise to only talk about airport food if you ask really nicely.

In the meantime, stay up-to-date with the haps (like our two impending East Coast TUGG screenings) by following the Twitter, the Facebook, or The Youtube.

See you tonight!  Assuming we don’t get washed away.

*This isn’t true.  Andy has not dirty secrets about his morning routine….
