This year marks the 35th anniversary of the theatrical release of Ghostbusters, the 1984 blockbuster comedy starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson as the title paranormal investigators. Now, Fathom Events and Sony Pictures are bringing the film back to theaters nationwide for 2 days only this October.
Theaters nationwide will be showing the film on Sunday, October 6 and Thursday, October 10, 2019, and will include a screening of an introduction with newly unearthed and rarely seen alternate takes.
I used to love the Sci-Fi Channel before it turned to the dark side forever when it was renamed SyFy and devoted the vast majority of its airtime to turgid reality programming and cheesy “original” movies like Dinocroc and Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus. The network became more of a machine, twisted… AND EVIL! But every so often one of those made-for-SyFy flicks delivers some first-rate entertainment on the order of the best in modern bad cinema. It looks like the network’s latest killer fish offering Jersey Shore Shark Attack will be continuing that fine tradition in grand style.
You can watch the movie’s trailer here below.
Directed and written by a bunch of folks you couldn’t care less about, Jersey Shore Shark Attack is partially based on a real-life series of shark attacks that plagued New Jersey’s scenic coast in 1916, but only uses that history as a garnish for the movie’s main attraction – namely, dollar bin CGI sharks hungering for the spray-tanned flesh of Jagermeister-soaked guidos and guidettes. The shark of the title looks more like the monster from Troma’s Killer Condom if it were enlarged and rendered with the kind of computerized visual effects that would be too primitive for a Super Nintendo video game cut scene circa 1994.
Earlier this week we brought you the first trailer for the upcoming Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie, the first feature from Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! creators/stars Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim. Now, the first full-length trailer and the film’s poster have been released and you can check them both out here below. Be warned, the trailer is red-band and definitely NSFW.
It was almost two years ago when I first read in an interview with Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, the creators of Adult Swim’s oddball sketch comedy series Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, that the duo were working on their first theatrical feature. Titled Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie, the movie would star Heidecker and Wareheim in addition to some big name comedy stars and famed character actors, two groups the show itself never had a shortage of in the cast. But since then little has been heard about the status of the movie or when it would be released. More importantly, once finished would this movie ever be seen?
Today we are happy to report that not only has Billion Dollar Movie been completed but it has a distributor, a release date set in stone, and an actual, honest-to-Spagett trailer!
