Finally, after months of waiting, the official trailer for Birdemic II: The Resurrection, the sequel to Birdemic: Shock and Terror (review here), has hit the interwebs, and it’s home to lots of “acting” and angry birds!
From the Press Release
Arm yourself with a coat hanger…you asked for it. The official trailer for the highly anticipated film Birdemic 2: The Resurrection, written and directed by the Master of Romantic Thrillers™ James Nguyen, is live exclusively on the homepage of IMDB.
In this sequel to cult favorite Birdemic: Shock and Terror, a flock of eagles and vultures wreak havoc amidst blossoming romance in Hollywood, California, leaving bloodshed and destruction wherever they hover. The story features original Birdemic survivors Rod and Nathalie, who are joined by new friends—struggling filmmaker Bill, aspiring actress Gloria, and several other Angelinos they encounter as they battle angry birds and a host of new enemies.
Visionary writer/director James Nguyen said his inspiration for the film was the La Brea Tar Pits. “I went to the museum at the Tar Pits, which had an exhibit of ancient eagles and vultures,” he recalled, “and as I walked through it, I said, ‘This is Birdemic 2.’” He added, “The Tar Pits are a major hint why the birds attack LA.”
The film’s production company, I Got a Fish Productions LLC, has announced that the world premieres will be in November 2012 in a few select cities with cast and crew on hand, with a wider theatrical release currently being set for December and early next year. To raise funds for broader marketing of Birdemic 2: The Resurrection due to increasing theatrical demand, producer Jeff Gross created a campaign you can check out here.
“As a rabid fan of the original and after hearing James’ pitch for the sequel, I knew this was a film that had to be made,” Gross said. “At the very least, I needed to see it. I felt the world of cinema would be incomplete without the continuation of the Birdemic saga.” He also stated, “We produced it entirely independently to ensure James had complete creative control through the final cut. Fans of the original should be thrilled to see where he took the story. To call the picture ‘unique’ is an understatement.”
Alan Bagh and Whitney Moore are reprising their characters along with many other familiar characters from Half Boon Bay that are set to return. While showing off his mastery of the romantic thriller, director James Nguyen will be introducing two new characters as well, and while we can’t drop the plot bombshell we learned of on you guys just yet, we can tell you that Nguyen has raised the stakes this time; and you, my fellow sickos, are in for one hell of a crazed and very romantic experience.
Bill is a struggling filmmaker; Gloria is an aspiring actress. Rod, a Silicon Valley millionaire, finances Bill’s film, a dream come true until eagles and vultures attack Hollywood, and it’s up to Rod, his girlfriend Nathalie, new friends and old to mount the resistance. Who will survive? Birdemic II, you asked for it.
