Good news: It's getting released. Bad news: It's a "producer's cut."
Salma Hayek is looking very uncharacteristically badass in the first image from Joe Lynch's assassin thriller Everly.
Rich originally wrote this up but I had so much to add I had to hijack the story.
It seems pretty clear from the circumstances that this won't be the "real" version of Badassdom but a hacked-up version, butchered by Indievest CEO Wayne Bradley.
When we talked about Joe Lynch‘s Everly before, I was correcting the publicly traded plot description. This bit was right: Everly centers on a down-on-her-luck woman, stuck in her apartment, who must fend off waves of assassins sent by her ex, a dangerous mob boss. This bit was wrong: Pic is set entirely in one room. And here’s […]
The story of how a film stormed it at Comic-Con... only to get kidnapped, chopped up and shopped about in a mutilated version.
Back in the summer of 2011, director Joe Lynch premiered the trailer for Knights of Badassdom during a San Diego Comic-Con panel. It was a rather exciting moment...
Adam Green’s sitcom Holliston is the first original commission for FearNet. It is, in some respects, a reworking of a reworking of Green’s first feature, the $400-budgeted Coffee & Donuts. That picture has gone essentially unseen since it was made over a decade ago – though I can’t help but hope it will at least […]
At some point later this year, Joe Lynch‘s sophomore picture The Knights of Badassdom will finally be unveiled. It’s been a long time coming – not least because Lynch seemed to take an awful long time selecting a second project. And it’s a special film to Bleeding Cool, being the subject of my first story […]
The horror comedy anthology Chillerama is a mixed bag – such is the nature of anthologies. The best installment, I think, is Adam Green’s remarkable The Diary of Anne Frankenstein. I’ve seen it four times now and have been more taken with it every time. In this clip you’ll see Adolf Hitler discover the diary […]
I’ve seen the horror anthology Chillerama twice now, once at Comic Con and then last weekend at Frightfest. One of the installments, Adam Green’s The Diary of Anne Frankenstein was also screened at Frightfest last year, so I’ve seen that little blighter three times. Luckily, it’s something remarkable – an absurdist assault on Hitler by […]
During Brendon’s highly illuminating talk with Adam Green at Frightfest, he also got the writer-director to talk a bit about his new TV series, Holliston, which is presumably named after Green’s home town of Holliston, Massachusetts. “The show is called Holliston, it’s the first ever horror sitcom. It’s kind of like the anti-Friends, so it’s […]
As premiered this afternoon at Comic-Con, here’s the first trailer for Joe Lynch’s long awaited second film, Knights of Badassdom. Beautiful cast – in many sense of the word. No wonder the San Diego horde went a bit gaga for them. Technically, this is NSFW stuff. You can always find a new job anyway. It’s […]
The long awaited second feature from Joe Lynch is just around the corner though if you catch the wind just right, you’ll probably be able to smell the sweat and grue from here. Knights of Badassdom will be the “Sundance picture in a tentpole’s skin” that sees a series of LARPers thrown into battle against […]
Coming later this year is the anthology picture, Chillerama. Each of its four segments will be a B-movie pastiche, largely played for dark and booming laughs. I saw a 95% completed version of one chapter, Adam Green‘s The Diary of Anne Frankenstein, at Frightfest last Autumn, and really rather liked it. The other three chapters […]
One of the scripts to make last year’s Black List of hotly-touted screenplays was Everly by Yale Hannon, a film pitched as Panic Room meets Crank.* It is, if you’ll pardon a daft pun that you’ll get in a paragraph or two, wall-to-wall action. The story credit for the film goes to Hannon and Joe […]
Up above is the second, official image from The Knights of Badassdom. We previously ran the first. This appears to show Peter Dinklage, as Hung, having the upper hand over Michael Gladis as King Diamond. Or maybe I need glasses. And in case you need glasses, this aint no Middle Earth – they’re LARPers. The […]
The knights of badassdom behind The Knights of Badassdom this weekend promised that once the film’s Facebook page made it to 1000 likes, they’d post the first promotional image from the film. I was hooked by this (they had me at “assdom”) and even tried to campaign on their behalf, get the “likes” up and […]
