Sony Home Entertainment
Release Date: March 9, 2010

If you read Geeks of Doom, you know I’ve been one of the biggest supporters of a sequel to 1999’s The Boondock Saints for as long as one has been rumored, which is about eleven years now. And from the moment Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day became official, any time anything was released about the movie, I was jumping on it. Various different posts came of it all, including interviews with stars Clifton Collins Jr. and Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus.

Because of my love for the first and my being proud of its Boston roots, that made me a likely biased candidate to review the film when it was released on DVD and Blu-ray, but it was in-fact only fitting that I do so. I did enjoy the movie after all was said and done, but surprisingly, there were also things that I was not a big fan of and I’ll be sure to share them all!

‘The Boondock Saints’ Continues In Comic Book Miniseries

By The Canadian Titan

Boondock Saints comic book miniseriesAre you a fan of comics? Do you like The Boondock Saints?

If so then here’s some cool news for all of you fanatics out there just like me.

It has recently come to my attention that 12 Gauge Comics will be releasing a two-part miniseries called Boondock Saints: In Nomini Patris, which will serve as an bonus content from the second movie The Boondock Saints: All Saints Day.

This miniseries will delve us further into the McManus brothers’ past and we’ll learn more about their father Il Duce. A sneak preview is coming to stores this May with the series launching this Summer.

Troy Duffy, who wrote and directed both of these awesome movies, will be co-writing the comic books along with writer J.B. Love, with art by Guus Floor. Love told Newsarama that there will be “a few scenes that you’ll remember from ‘All Saints Day’, but most of the content is new and fills in the blanks in the flashback sequences.”

‘Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day’ Reaches $11 Million Box Office Mark

Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day movie poster

Since Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day finally came out in theaters on October 30, 2009, the goodies to report have been scarce. And Looking at the number in the title, you may think that this is a bad news post, but alas, this is not so!

All Saints Day had a budget of only $8 million, and with it now at the $11 million mark, that’s a big score for the film. Keep in mind, this is an indie movie, so it was only released in a maximum 500 theaters (as compared to the 3,461 theaters that giant movies like Avatar get), so this is a strong showing. In fact, these numbers now make Boondock Saints II the top-grossing film with a limited release in 2009 and Apparition Films’ top-grossing film of all time.

‘Boondock Saints’ Director Troy Duffy Breaks His Silence On ‘Overnight’

Overnight

The documentary Overnight is a film that follows Troy Duffy, a former bartender who became an overnight Hollywood sensation when his script The Boondock Saints caught everyone’s eyes and delivered him a deal with Harvey Weinstein and Miramax Films, and a $15 Million budget to make his movie. Film makers Tony Montana and Mark Brian Smith followed Duffy and his friends and family as they reached the highest of highs with the movie deal and a music deal, and then lost them both as Troy seemingly refused to kiss the system’s feet.

The movie painted the man in an interesting light. As you can plainly tell, a large amount of people flat-out decided that he was an ass and that they hated him based solely on this movie, and something never felt quite right about it. Because of that, I’ve personally always been interested to hear what Troy himself thought about it all, and now we know thanks to an interview that he did with /Film‘s David Chen.

Click over for direct quotes from Troy Duffy as well as the the studio and film makers behind the documentary.

Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day movie poster

In case you’re one of the few fans who haven’t heard yet (where have you been?), after a painful ten year wait, a sequel to the 1999 Troy Duffy cult classic The Boondock Saints has finally been made, and it will be released in select theaters this Friday, October 30. Over the past year or so we’ve seen many production journals, some images, posters, and trailers, and we’ve even had the honor of interviewing cast members Clifton Collins Jr. as well as Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus. And while it’s uncertain who will be able to run out and see the film this Friday, IGN has one more goodie for us to enjoy: the first five minutes of the film.

The footage just basically sets up the movie briefly, showing the brothers hiding out in Ireland when they realize that they need to go back to Boston and deal with someone who’s trying to frame them. They’re not in Ireland nearly as long as I thought they were going to be, but no one ever complained about getting right down to business.

‘Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day’ Official Poster, Images & New Trailer!

Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day movie poster

We’re now officially in October and the 30th is only right around the corner. On that day, we will finally get the sequel of the decade: Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, and there’s a buzzing excitement in the air we breathe! To fuel this excitement, Sony has released an official poster, a few new images to peek at, as well as the new Green Band trailer for all to see. The first and only trailer that we saw was of course the Red Band trailer that was released last month, so this new trailer is the first safe for work look at the movie.

The trailer is basically the same as the Red Band offering, but there are differences and there’s definitely some new shots we haven’t seen yet, making it absolutely worth watching in full oogle-eyed fashion. The poster can be seen at the upper-right (click for full size) and it’s the high quality version of the poster that we’ve seen photographed at conventions.

Saints

Geeks of Doom has had the honor of interviewing some of the great cast members of Troy Duffy‘s desperately-anticipated sequel, Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. First up was the wonderful Clifton Collins Jr., who’s new to the gang in the sequel. And now, I’m pleased to present our own little chat with the best two good guy killers ever seen in a movie — the Boondock Saints: Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus!

Whether you’re a super-fan of the original 1999 cult classic The Boondock Saints or not, you’ve very likely seen both of these gentleman in numerous other movies and TV shows. Sean has appeared in movies like Powder and Suicide Kings, and he even rocked the fedora and whip as Indiana Jones in Young Indiana Jones. Norman will soon be seen in Pandorum, and is also known from his roles in movies like Deuces Wild, Blade II, and Ridley Scott’s American Gangster with Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington.

You can stay up to date with both of these fine actors by following them on Twitter, or by going to their official websites for all the information you need on all of the past, current, and future projects discussed in this interview. Sean Patrick Flanery can be found at his site www.seanflanery.com, and you can find Norman Reedus and his work at either www.bigbaldhead.com or www.normanreedusonline.com.

Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day will officially be released on October 30th of this year, so there’s only a little more than a month to wait. For now, you can go and watch the trailer 50 or 60 more times, and you can click on over to the other side and read this little chat with the McManus brothers!

Must Watch: ‘Boondock Saints 2’ Red Band Trailer Is Here NOW!

Boondock 2

How long have we waited, my friends? Ten years now, and after a long production process and painful post-production wait, the glorious trailer for Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day has been released to the masses!

As with most first trailers, you’re mainly going to find a lot of eye candy here. You of course get to see the MacManus brothers back in action, you’ll get peeks at returning characters like Il Duce (Billy Connolly), and then you get a taste of the new characters, which includes the new sidekick, Romeo, and Willem Dafoe‘s (who’s not returning) protege, who is hot on the brother’s tails. Oh, and of course, there’s a hell of a lot of shootin’ going on here.

For those of you silly peoples who aren’t familiar with the original 1999 cult classic, The Boondock Saints: it tells the story of two brothers who believe that they do God’s work by dispatching those who are associated with evil, because the justice system doesn’t take care of it. The script was raved about in Hollywood circles, but much complications arose, and the larger studios who were producing it stepped away, leaving up-and-coming director Troy Duffy to find independent financing and make the movie as big as possible on a small budget. The lacking budget can surely be seen in the movie, but it quickly amassed a giant cult following who have literally been rabid for a sequel for the last decade — a sequel they now have.

Click on over for an official plot synopsis and the trailer! Be warned: the trailer is Red Band and semi-NSFW due to a small amount of naughty language, so you will have to prove you are an adult of sorts.

Boondock Comic

Last year at New York Comic Con, Troy Duffy met with 12-Gauge Comics about possibly creating comic book based on The Boondock Saints (Read: The ‘Boondock Saints’ Comic Book?). Now, with the San Diego Comic Con upon us, it has been announced that a comic book tie-in to the highly-anticipated sequel Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day is indeed on the way and will be announced at the convention.

Duffy spoke to Comic Book Resources and explained that the comic will give us a more in-depth look into the origins of the infamous Il Duce (played in the movies by the fantastic Billy Connolly) and how he became a cold-blooded killer. You can see the first issue’s artwork above.

If you’re heading to Comic Con this week, be sure to hit the 12-Gauge booth on Friday where you can meet director Troy Duffy and check out the Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day panel on Saturday, where the Boondock II trailer will be unveiled!

Click on over to see the brief motion trailer that has been released for the comic. I’m not sure if the comic will actually be a full-on motion comic or if it’s just this trailer that’s using the style.

‘Boondock Saints 2’ To Have ‘Enter the Dragon’ Showdown; In Theaters By Fall?

Boondock

J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek actor Clifton Collins Jr. spoke to MTV recently about his work on the cult super-sequel to The Boondock Saints, Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day. Collins Jr. mentions how he was able to see a rough cut at director Troy Duffy‘s house on Saint Patrick’s Day (what I would have given to be at that party), and went on to talk about his favorite parts, when we might see the movie, and how Duffy took it to another level.

While no official word has been dropped yet, Collins Jr. admitted that he had once heard that All Saints Day would be fittingly released on the November 1st holiday of the same name, but because the film was considered so “hot” right now, it may be let loose even earlier than that, and he’s even sure it will be released theatrically. We can only hope this is true. That would mean a trailer very soon, and the movie within four to five months. Considering how long we’ve been waiting for this movie, it seems so very unlikely that it would be that easy, but if it’s really damn good, why the hell not!

Click over for some quotes. Collins does talk about a scene, so minor spoiler warning. I don’t see any reason to avoid it, though.
