One of the coolest things about going to film festivals is getting to see movies before they open. The perfect metaphor for this situation would involve me dying (gently, in my sleep, of course), then returning to earth, reincarnated as a chubby eight year old. My loving and generous mother then lets me loose for days, alone, in a candy store. The candy-loving movie geek in me firmly approves this metaphor.
That metaphor leads me to this: this year’s Fantastic Fest kicks off this Thursday with the premiere of GENTLEMEN BRONCOS. Oh yes, and stars Jemaine Clement, Sam Rockwell, Mike White, and filmmakers Jared and Jerusha Hess will be in attendance. My chubby eight year old reincarnated self just found a bowl of everlasting gummy bears. Do you follow me? I couldn’t be more excited about this film.
But the gummy bears just keep flowing, as we’ve teamed up with Fox Searchlight to bring you an exclusive first look at the seventh behind-the-scenes web series video of GENTLEMEN BRONCOS. This clip, my favorite of the series so far, gives us a peek at Sam Rockwell (in brilliant costume get up) hanging out on set, trying to perfect his ray gun slinging.
Check out the fun video after the jump! And then head on over to GentlemenBroncos.Comto see the previous 6 videos. GENTLEMEN BRONCOS opens in theaters October 30th!
Benjamin, home-schooled by his eccentric mother, is a loveable loner whose passion for writing leads him on an offbeat and hilarious journey as his story gets ripped off by the legendary novelist Ronald Chevalier and then is adapted into a disastrous movie by the small town’s most prolific homespun filmmaker.
