Godkiller to premiere at C2E2
Headline - Press release
Posted by Richard Boom on Mar 30, 2010
Halo-8 has announced the full-length animated feature film Godkiller will premiere at Chicago's C2E2 (the new comic-con/pop-culture mega-event produced by the team behind NY Comic Con), immediately following the C2E2 panel "HALO-8: Illustrated Films & Comics" on Friday April 16th at 7:45pm.
Capping off Godkiller's unique, grassroots stealth-release of episodic shortform DVDs, this first public showing of the complete Godkiller full-length film will be followed by a string of nationwide theatrical events before it hits VOD, Digital, and DVD/Blu-ray on May 25th.
The epic story of a boy's journey through a war-ravaged wasteland to find a new heart for his dying sister, Godkiller was directed by award-winning filmmaker Matt Pizzolo (Threat) and stars genre-heroes Lance Henriksen (Aliens), Danielle Harris (Halloween 4, 5, I, II), Bill Moseley (The Devil's Rejects), Nicki Clyne (Battlestar Galactica), Tiffany Shepis (Night of the Demons), alt-culture icon Lydia Lunch (Hardcore), and rockstars Justin Pierre (singer of Motion City Soundtrack) and Davey Havok (singer of AFI).
The dark, unrated film pioneers a new style of animation called 'illustrated-films,' developed by Pizzolo with his producing partner, Emmy-winner Brian Giberson. Utilizing sequential art by illustrator Anna Muckcracker, the illustrated-film adds 3D CGI, motion graphics, elaborate sound design, and dramatic voice performances for an edgy, sophisticated, intricately detailed new form of animation. Danielle Harris told iF Magazine "it's more like moving art than animation, with very good writing." Upcoming illustrated-films from Halo-8 include Tim Seeley's Loaded Bible and James Farr's Xombie: Reanimated.
Godkiller: Walk Among Us is the epic story of a boy on a quest to save his dying sister. Based on the comic book Pizzolo created with Anna Muckcracker, Godkiller takes place in a dark-future after economic collapse, after nuclear holy war, and after Earth is colonized by alien races. Tommy and his kid sister Lucy live in an orphanage in one of the few remaining city-states, but Lucy is critically ill and desperately in need of a new heart. Tommy's odyssey to find a new heart for his sister begins when he follows an organ-stealing prostitute named Halfpipe out of the city-state and into the savage borderland known as Outer City. Godkiller mixes unforgiving brutality, quantum physics, conspiracy theory, and secret history for an iconoclastic hero's journey like none before it.
Godkiller Silent War is the story of the end of civilization as we know it. In the near future, 17 year old Joe Junior and his girlfriend Bee run a speakeasy in the basement of an abandoned NYC church where they serve narcotic drinks to underagers while providing sanctuary and black-market employment to draft dodgers. When Joe is recruited by an armed cult of populist assassins, he is thrust into a secret world of international cabals, alien conspiracies, and the countdown to Armageddon. [Godkiller: Silent War is a sci-fi/urban-fantasy novel that will be released as a serialized audiobook on the Godkiller: Walk Among Us episodic dvds]
