Halo-8 and Matt Pizzolo’s “illustrated film” Godkiller has added eight cities to its You-Demand-It Theatrical Tour, and in addition word has come down from their VOD partner, Gravitas Ventures, that 19 of the 20 major cable VOD providers have selected the film for their summer programming, ensuring it will be available in over 75 million homes starting May 25th.
“Now that’s just ridiculous,” said writer-director Pizzolo. “I set out to make a movie for misfits, lunatics, and sociopaths … based on the response, I can only say it’s refreshing to see so many crazy people are in positions of influence. Our weird little mind-bomb will be invading a lot of homes this summer.”
The VOD carriers supporting Godkiller include Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cox, Charter, Verizon, Cablevision, DirecTV, Dish, RCN, Insight, Mediacom, Bresnan, Suddenlink, Rogers, Videotron, Sasktel, Cogeco, Shaw, Telus, and more as well as digital carriers Amazon, Apple iTunes, Playstation Network, and Xbox Live.
The next set of theatrical cities are:
– May 28: Providence, RI @ Cable Car Cinema
– May 30: Knoxville, TN @ The Ciderhouse
– June 4: Indianapolis, IN @ Cinema Grill
– June 4: Grand Rapids, MI @ Wealthy Theatre
– June 11: Milwaukee, WI @ Rosebud Cinema
– July 2: San Antonio, TX @ Bijou Cinema Bistro
– July 2: Albuquerque, NM @ The Guild Cinema
– July 3: Tomball, TX @ Silverado IMAX
To make room for the ongoing You-Demand-It tour (which continues to book additional cities), Godkiller‘s DVD/Blu-ray street date has been pushed to July 20, 2010 (coinciding with Godkiller events at the San Diego Comic-Con).
“Theatrical events offer a shared experience for the core audience, and VOD makes it super accessible and inexpensive for casual viewers so that makes DVD & Blu-ray more of collectibles … with that in mind we’re going to use the extra time to make the DVD & Blu-ray extra awesome,” explained Pizzolo.
The twisted, sci-fi/horror adventure about a teenage boy’s odyssey to find a new heart for his dying sister in a post-nuke wasteland of fallen gods, organ-stealing hookers, and sex-addicted techno wizards, Godkiller was directed by award-winning filmmaker Matt Pizzolo with illustrations by Anna Muckcracker and music by Alec Empire and Atari Teenage Riot, starring genre heroes Lance Henriksen (Aliens), Danielle Harris (Halloween 4, 5, I, II), Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects), Nicki Clyne (“Battlestar Galactica”), Tiffany Shepis (Night of the Demons), alt-culture icon Lydia Lunch (Hardcore), and rock stars Justin Pierre (singer of Motion City Soundtrack) and Davey Havok (singer of AFI).
