Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren in 'RED' join Fantastic Fest 2010's third wave of programming
Wow. Just as I'm gearing up to start posting some of the Toronto coverage we've already been working on here at HitFix for you, this shows up in my inbox. I can't believe I'm going to enjoy the lunacy of Fantastic Fest this month... that it's already been a year since the last one.
And with every single announcement, it sounds like this year's Fantastic Fest just keeps getting more and more... well... fantastic. Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren and "RED"? The ActionFest award-winning film "14 Blades"? The Bill Pullman events alone sound so geektastic that they just became a can't-miss, and that Indian film sounds... well, I'll let you read it for yourself.
Check this out:
"Fantastic Fest, the largest genre festival in the U.S., is excited to announce additional films to its mind-blowing roster of features & shorts. Highlights of this announcement are the US premiere of the hyper-stylized action film Bunraku, a sneak preview of Darren Bousman’s terrifying new horror-thriller film, Mother’s Day (featuring a bravura performance by Rebecca DeMornay), and the world premiere of Agnosia, the latest film from Fantastic Fest 2005 Alumnus Eugenio Mira.
Additionally, Fantastic Fest will play host to a sneak preview of the highly anticipated action-comedy RED, starring pretty much the best cast assembled for a comic book adaptation…ever. And if you’re not excited to see Helen Mirren at the helm of a .50 caliber machine gun, we don’t want to know you.
Bill Pullman, one of our all-time favorite Fantastic Fest guests is returning to the festival this year. Pullman will join the hecklers of Master Pancake Theater for a special screening of Independence Day and will make an appearance as Lone Star for the Spaceballs Quote-Along.
