A new trailer has come our way for Panos Cosmatos’ sci-fi thriller Beyond the Black Rainbow, and it has us both intrigued and slightly confused. Check it out!
You can't say we didn't warn you there'd be some more distribution news coming out of the Cannes Film Festival. The latest tidbit is that Magnet Releasing (the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures) has picked up US rights and Mongrel Media has acquired Canada from XYZ Pictures to Panos Cosmatos’ sci-fi thriller Beyond the Black Rainbow.
Director Panos Cosmatos definitley has balls. His first feature, Beyond The Black Rainbow, is one of the most psychedelic offerings in quite some time, and the film reaches beyond the abstract into territory few films dare to explore. The question is, does Cosmatos have the vision and the talent to match his confidence? Decide for yourself when you see the film!
We're still not sure if Panos Cosmatos' Beyond the Black Rainbow is more sci-fi or horror, but its description certainly seems tailored toward the genre crowd so we're happy to point our readers - especially those attending this year's Tribeca Film Festival - in its direction. Perhaps the two new stills provided to us today will shed a bit more light on the situation.
We're just a few days away from the April 20th start date of the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival so over the next week we'll be highlighting this year's genre fare and posting the screening schedules. First up is Beyond the Black Rainbow, written and directed by Panos Cosmatos, a Reagan-era fever dream inspired by hazy childhood memories of midnight movies and Saturday morning cartoons.
Strap in, kids. The powers-that-be at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival have released several stills from the entries in their Cinemania program (i.e., science fiction, horror, exploitation, and fantasy), and of course we have them all for you right here. First up is Beyond the Black Rainbow, directed and written by Panos Cosmatos. Synopsis:
