Celluloid Wizards in the Video Wasteland: The Saga of Empire Pictures

"Celluloid Wizards in the Video Wasteland: The Saga of Empire Pictures" is an ALL-NEW feature documentary about the rise and fall of Empire Pictures, the most ambitious B-movie studio in the 1980's.

While other independent film companies were targeting the growing home video market, producer Charles Band ("The Pupper Master" series) was releasing low-budget horror and fantasy features to drive-in's and multiplexes around the world. The early runaway box office success of films like, "Re-Animator" and "Ghoulies", paved the foundation for Empire's wildly imaginative slate of motion pictures. But what led the youthful studio to crash and burn upon the sticky floors of empty movie theaters?

The thrilling saga of Empire Pictures is told through the eyes of the innovative team of filmmakers and film professionals who worked together to reinvent and reinvigorate the independent film industry in the 1980's. The documentary also features never-before-seen footage, production stills, and rare glimpses at the motion pictures that were in development when the studio was dramatically seized by the bank.

Rebirth

A twisted psychological thriller from writer/director Karl Mueller (Mr. Jones) and producer Ross Dinerstein (The Pact, The Nightmare). Long-lost buddy Zack gets suburban dad Kyle on a bus to a Rebirth seminar, sending him down a rabbit hole of psychodrama, seduction and violence.

Billionaire Ransom

Follows a group of over-privileged, out-of-control young adults who have been sent by their frustrated, billionaire parents to a tough-love wilderness school on a remote island off the coast of Scotland. Kyle (Sumpter) and Amy (Tonkin) find themselves in this group as a last opportunity for them to take responsibility for their own lives and abandon their reckless ways, or risk being disinherited. Suddenly, a group of mercenaries led by Billy Speck (Westwick) invade the island and hold the privileged lot hostage for the largest ransom in history: one billion dollars. When Kyle learns they are all to be killed even if the ransom is paid, their wilderness survival training is the only hope of outwitting the mercenaries and staying alive. Billionaire Ransom is directed by filmmaker Jim Gillespie (Venom, I Know What You Did Last Summer), from a screenplay by Alexander Ignon.

Suicide Squad

A secret government agency run by Amanda Waller, named A.R.G.U.S creates a task force comprising super villains, the "Suicide Squad". They are assigned to execute dangerous tasks in exchange for shorter prison sentences.

Other People

Comedy and tragedy can be tough to blend, especially when it comes to a topic as heavy as cancer (the disease afflicting David’s mom Joanne, played to perfection by Molly Shannon). But Other People maintains that balance better than most. There are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, many of which are intermingled with sob-out-loud moments. It helps greatly that first-time director Chris Kelly maintains a low-key, naturalistic vibe throughout. When a sad moment yields some laughs, or a funny moment gives way to a tearjerking one, it doesn’t feel like he’s pulling the audience from one extreme to another. It just feels like the way sad and funny actually do mix, all the time, in real life.

War Dogs

Based on a true story, “War Dogs” follows two friends in their early 20s (Hill and Teller) living in Miami Beach during the Iraq War who exploit a little-known government initiative that allows small businesses to bid on U.S. Military contracts. Starting small, they begin raking in big money and are living the high life. But the pair gets in over their heads when they land a 300 million dollar deal to arm the Afghan Military—a deal that puts them in business with some very shady people, not the least of which turns out to be the U.S. Government.

League of Gods

League of Gods (Chinese: 3D封神榜) is an upcoming Hong Kong-Chinese fantasy film directed by Koan Hui and Vernie Yeung based on the novel Fengshen Yanyi by Xu Zhonglin and starring an ensemble cast of Jet Li, Tony Leung, Louis Koo, Huang Xiaoming, Angelababy, Wen Zhang and Jacky Heung.
