SPECIAL FILM SCREENINGS PRESENTED BY SHOUT! FACTORY AT COMIC-CON

LUC BESSON’S THE EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES OF ADELE BLANC-SEC (Friday, July 19 at 7 PM, Marriott Marquis Marina)
Journey into an awe-inspiring world of action fantasy and visual wonder with popular French comics heroine Adele Blanc-Sec as she leaps from the pages to the screen! Directed and produced by world-renowned filmmaker Luc Besson (The Fifth Element) and adapted from Eisner Award winner Jacques Tardi‘s celebrated French classic comic book series, THE EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES OF ADELE BLANC-SEC features a stellar cast of Louise Bourgoin (Anne Fontaine’s The Girl From Monaco), Mathieu Amalric (Quantum Of Solace), Gilles Lellouche (Love Me If You Dare), Jean-Paul Rouve (La Vie En Rose), and Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre (The Diving Bell And The Butterfly).

The year is 1912. This is the story of a intrepid young reporter Adele Blanc-Sec and her quest for the power of life over death. Her journey takes her to distant lands to face many dangers beneath the sands. She will go to any length to achieve her aims, including sailing to Egypt to tackle mummies of all shapes and sizes. Meanwhile in Paris, a 136 million-year-old pterodactyl egg on display in the natural history museum has mysteriously hatched, and the creature subjects the city to a reign of terror from the skies. But nothing fazes Adele Blanc-Sec whose adventures include many more extraordinary surprises…

THE EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES OF ADeLE BLANC-SEC arrives August 13, 2013 on DVD and on two-disc BLU-RAY™ COMBO PACK from Shout! Factory, in collaboration with EuropaCorp. Trailer

But, when you’re robbing a bank, zombie invasions make things a lot harder. And let’s face it, they need all the help they can get when their bank-robbing experts turn out to be Mental Mickey and Davey Tuppance. As contractors to an East London building site unlock a 350-year old vault full of seriously hungry zombies, the East End has suddenly gone to hell and the Cockney way of life is under threat. Equipped with all the guns and ammo they can carry, it’s up to the gang to save the hostages, their grandfather, and East London from zombie Armageddon.

COCKEYS VS. ZOMBIES will be released simultaneously in theaters and day-and-date on VOD Friday, August 2, 2013. Trailer | Official Site.

MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000: THE MOVIE (Thursday, July 18 at 6:15 PM at Marriott Marquis Marina)
After six seasons of sublime, nerdy fun on television, the cult comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000 took to the big screen in 1996 for its deliriously funny takedown of the 1955 alien invasion epic This Island Earth.

Evil scientist Dr. Clayton Forrester explains the premise at the start: in his quest for world domination, he devises a scheme to subject the human race to the worst movies ever made.He tests his plan on Mike Nelson, the sole human aboard an Earth-orbiting space station known as the Satellite of Love.But our hero and his two robot sidekicks turn a lemon into a much funnier lemon by showering This Island Earth with wisecracks, ridicule and general silliness.The human race may never be rid of cheesy movies, but when the critics are this nutty, who cares?

Starring Michael J. Nelson, Trace Beaulieu, Kevin Murphy, Jim Mallon; Based on the television series by Joel Hodgson; Produced and directed by Jim Mallon. Shout! Factory will release MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000: THE MOVIE Collector’s Edition Blu-ray+DVD combo pack on September 3, 2013.

A BOY AND HIS DOG (Thursday, July 18 at 11 PM at Marriott Marquis Marina)
Directed by L.Q. Jones and based on the award-winning novella by acclaimed science-fiction author Harlan Ellison, A Boy And His Dog is a dark and often wickedly funny trip through a post-apocalyptic world, where the friendship between a boy and his dog is the only currency that matters

World War IV lasted only five days but has ravaged Earth, leaving its survivors to battle for food, shelter and companionship in a post-atomic wasteland.This celebrated sci-fi tale follows the exploits of Vic (Don Johnson) and his sardonic telepathic dog, Blood, as they struggle through the barren wilderness in search of food and women. In the midst of their meager existence, Vic and Blood encounter Quilla June (Susanne Benton), a dubious young woman who lures them into a surreal city deep beneath the Earth’s surface. Initially elated to find a colony of survivors, Vic and Blood quickly learn this city is not what it seems.

Winner of the 1976 Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, A Boy And His Dog stars Don Johnson, Susan Benton and Alvy Moore; produced by Alvy Moore; Written for the screen and directed by L.Q. Jones.

On August, 6th, 2013 Shout! Factory will debut this off-beat cult film classic for the first time on Blu-ray.

CAPTAIN AMERICA 1990 Action Super Hero Movie Classic (Thursday, July 18 at 9PM at the Convention Center screening room)
A film by Albert Pyun and starring Matt Salinger, Ronny Cox, Ned Beatty, Darren McGavin, Michael Nouri and Scott Paulin

Long ago, Steve Rogers (Matt Salinger) was a true American hero, a brave super soldier created by scientists to help the Allied Forces fight for freedom in World War II. But during a battle with the sinister Red Skull (Scott Paulin), he was lost, entombed in ice. Decades later, his body has been found and revived and Steve must again don the mantle of Captain America to help save the President of the United States (Ronny Cox) – and the world – from his arch-nemesis once and for all.

This summer, throw a mad monster party with the motley crew of the Satellite of Love as they celebrate the release of MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000: XXVII! Available July 23rd from Shout! Factory, this 4-DVD box set is a schlock-tastic monster movie mash featuring four episodes never-before-available on DVD: The Slime People, Rocket Attack USA, Village Of the Giants and The Deadly Mantis. There may be no finer-and certainly no funnier–meditation on monsters than this collection of episodes from the cult comedy series.As food for thought, we are served subterranean slime people, giant praying mantises, Soviet spies and–perhaps the most terrifying of all–enormous teenagers from the disturbing menu of America’s twisted psyche. Battling these Goliaths for us with their slingshots of sass and silliness are Joel, Mike and their robot henchmen, Tom Servo and Crow.The monsters are gruesome and the movies even more so, but the riffs are risible and retaliatory, proving definitively that revenge is actually a dish best served funny.
