Just got this press release in my email, and thought I'd share it here before working it up on The Thunder Child. Too bad it's taking place in England!
World Premiere of RECON 2022 at Sci-Fi London Film Festival
MONTREAL, CANADA, April 17, 2007 – Movie Seals Productions is delighted to announce that their latest sci-fi/action film RECON 2022: The Mezzo Incident, the sequel to the award winning RECON 2020 : the Caprini Massacre, will have its World Premiere at the renowned Sci-Fi London Festival in England on May 5th, 2007.
Directed by Christian Viel ( Evil Breed : the Legend of Samhain, Recon 2020, Deaden), the film stars Anderson Bradshaw (Gothika), Heidi Hawkins (Evil Breed), Deke Richards (Deaden), Carmen Echeverria (Undressed), with special appearances by Berge Garabedian (aka JoBlo) of joblo.com fame, John Fallon (aka Arrrow in the Head ) and scream queen Suzi Lorraine.
From a screenplay written by Christian Viel, John Fallon and William Alexander, the action packed story picks up two years after the events of the first film, and introduces a new cast of characters as well as bringing back familiar ones. After the gruesome events on Caprini, Sharp (Anderson Bradshaw) and his elite team of toughand witty space Marines must now head out to the icy planet Mezzo to investigate further Ma’har activities. What they will encounter will defy their imaginations as they tackle giant man eating snow worms, an underground city of Cyborgs, a slew of murderous alien entities and maybe, finally, the ever elusive Ma’hars.
Director Christian Viel and actor Anderson Bradshaw will be attending the premiere held on Saturday, May 5th, at 9:30 PM at the Apollo West End Theatre and stay for a Q&A following the movie.
The same day, in the morning, Christian Viel has been invited as a guest speaker for the Sci-Fi Film School alongside with fellow low budget indie filmmaker Neil Oseman to discuss the tricks of the trade with attendees. This presentation will be followed by a special screening of RECON 2022.
