What you need to know is that this music vid is for the successful Kickstarter-backed, 80s cop movie inspired,”Kung Fury” and it does indeed star The Hoff.
The movie’s trailer is down below. Any other explanation will only bring up further questions…
KUNG FURY OFFICIAL TRAILER:
The last update said the film will be released around the 22nd or 29th of May 2015.
If you ever heard anything about all those E.T. Atari game cartridges buried in the desert, this movie shows what led to them gettin’ there…and what happens when they dug them up. The documentary will premiere on XBOX.
If you can’t tell by the poster, this is the real deal, folks.
So, real quick… Alamo Drafthouse (we’ve featured the killer artwork for their 2nd-run films) has unearthed a lost 80s epic called Miami Connection and are presenting it at their many fine locations. They’re also making the soundtrack and other goodies available online. I think a roadtrip’s in order. Fire up the DeLorean.
“The year is 1987. Motorcycle ninjas tighten their grip on Florida’s narcotics trade, viciously annihilating anyone who dares move in on their turf. Multi-national martial arts rock band Dragon Sound have had enough, and embark on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice. When not chasing beach bunnies or performing their hit song “Against the Ninja,” Mark (Tae Kwon Do master/inspirational speaker Y.K. Kim) and the boys are kicking and chopping at the drug world’s smelliest underbelly. It’ll take every ounce of their blood and courage, but Dragon Sound can’t stop until they’ve completely destroyed the dealers, the drunk bikers, the kill-crazy ninjas, the middle-aged thugs, the “stupid cocaine”…and the entire See the rest »
Man, the artwork of VCJ and the guys of the Bones Brigade have a special place in my geeky heart. Junior High would not have been the same without them. This autobiography by Stacy Peralta looks like it’s giving ‘em a fitting tribute, too. Screenings times are still rolling in so keep an eye on BonesBrigade.com. In the meantime, they’re making the classic skate film (and I say Film), Animal Chin, available as a free download at animalchin.com. He’s got his own milk carton!
Though it’s missing the slo-mo group dance scene at the end, it’s got so many other Wes Anderson hallmarks, I’m not going to complain. Even if Moonrise Kingdom looks like the apex of self parody, I’ll still see it. Damnit. (via TheMovieBlog)
Steep yourself in the sonic deliciousness
of The Audio Program
With 53 documentaries packed into 4 days of the Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival, there’s a lot of decisions to make. However, The Audio Program is a no brainer. Presented by the production sound legends behind Apocalypse Now, A Bug’s Life, and more, Pat Jackson & Dan Gleich, The Audio Program runs Saturday, March 31. The festival goes from March 29th through April 1st.
Any SF ad nerd can tell you how important Howard Gossage was to the local ad scene and the industry at large. Probably they can even point to The Book of Gossage on their bookshelf. But documentarian/Director Ashley Pollak drops a few choice tibits that’ll make you realize just how important he was to the whole world…
“Gossage had managed to save the Grand Canyon from being flooded for profit, helped establish Friends of the Earth, discovered Marshal McLuhan – an obscure Canadian academic who thought up the Internet – and inadvertently caused the military invasion of a small Caribbean island.”
This trailer—at seven minutes—is a MiniDoc in and of itself. Which only makes me more excited to see the full flick. And hearing that Gossage‘s daughter, Sarah, is the Executive Producer doesn’t hurt things either. (via SFE and AdRants)
No word on the official soundtrack but this Radical Face tune, used in a Nikon spot in the past, suits this teaser like a custom score. Currently titled The Goodwin Project, the movie is literally an adventure in the making which follows the Goodwin family—surfers Aamion and Daisy, with their two children in tow—around the world. One of my friends is on the crew documenting their travels and it sounds pretty damn interesting. See where they’re at now at The Goodwin Project.
