New Distribution Partnership Releasing Another WolfCop in Canada

Published

on

WolfCop was a fun treat, and if you’re one of our Canadian readers who’s wondering when you might be able to see the sequel, Another WolfCop, well, today’s your lucky day! A new distribution partnership has been formed, and they’ll be bringing the film to your neck of the woods soon; read on for the details!

From the Press Release:
Vortex Words + Pictures has announced a new partnership with A71 Entertainment and Black Fawn Distribution to release the outrageously funny horror sequel Another WolfCop in Canada. The film is a direct sequel to the 2014 festival cult hit WolfCop, and Leo Fafard returns as the title character with Yannick Bisson (TV’s “Murdoch Mysteries”) also starring as super villain Sydney Swallows.

Written and directed by Lowell Dean (WolfCop); produced by Bernie Hernando, Deborah Marks, and Hugh Patterson; and distributed worldwide by Cineplex, Another WolfCop co-stars Amy Matysio, Jonathan Cherry, and Serena Miller. The film also features special appearances from Canadian music icon Gowan and legendary filmmaker Kevin Smith. It was executive produced by Sean Buckley, J. Joly, Bill Marks, Brian Wideen, Michael Kennedy, and Michael Hirsch.

Another WolfCop is slated for a wide Cineplex theatrical release on Friday, December 8, 2017, with the film seeing a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital home entertainment release through A71 and Black Fawn in 2018.

Another WolfCop continues the legend of alcoholic werewolf cop Lou Garou. This time around, WolfCop must spring into action to fight an eccentric businessman who has evil intentions of seducing Woodhaven’s residents with a new brewery and hockey team.

“A71 and Black Fawn Distribution are shining stars of Canadian distribution,” states Vortex Words + Pictures President Bill Marks. “This partnership will satisfy the fans’ bloodlust for Another WolfCop.”

“As fans of WolfCop, we believe this partnership is the right formula to release Another WolfCop properly across the country,” said Chad Maker, President of A71 Entertainment. “We look forward to working with Vortex and Black Fawn to bring this film to the current fan base and to new fans too. It’s going to be a blast.”

“It’s becoming increasingly clear that the fans are the ones that are driving this industry right now,” states Black Fawn Distribution’s Sales Manager C.F. Benner. “For Another WolfCop, it just made sense for Vortex, A71, and Black Fawn to work together and bring this juggernaut of a genre film to the rabid fan base that we know is out there.”

Another WolfCop is the first film to be released through the new Canadian distribution partnership among Vortex Words + Pictures, A71 Entertainment, and Black Fawn Distribution.

Writer/director Dean says the new film is “bigger and better, or, to put it more appropriately for our burgeoning franchise, ‘dirtier and hairier.’ This sequel will continue the storyline from the first film while improving things on every front. There will be deeper character development, storytelling, and mythology… more iconic visuals and cinematography… better fights… and a crazy amount of ‘What did I just see?’ moments.”

Benner adds, “We’re beyond excited for Black Fawn Distribution to become part of the WolfCop family. This film series is everything genre fans crave, and the end result is a sequel that genuinely rocks. With the blood, liquor, guns, and donuts pumped up to ridiculously awesome proportions, Another WolfCop truly is a fun experience. Plus, how cool is that poster?”

Synopsis:
A month has passed since the eclipse transformed hard-drinking Officer Lou Garou into the crime fighting hellion WolfCop. Although the Shape Shifters controlling the town have been extinguished, Woodhaven is far from returning to normal. Lou’s liquor-fueled antics and full moon outbursts are seriously testing his relationship with Officer Tina Walsh – the new Chief of Police. An old friend has mysteriously reappeared with a truly bizarre secret to share, and a homicidal new villain has emerged from the shadows looking to finish what the Shape Shifters started. To defeat this lethal adversary, it will take more than a lone wolf packing a pistol.

Prepare for the next chapter of WolfCop that will be more dirty and hairy than the original! Consider yourself warned.

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

Published

on

One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Synopsis:
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
