Australians may be a very friendly bunch, but maybe that’s to lull us into a false sense of security? Either way, the Outback is a vast area that can be frightening if you don’t know where you’re going. Case in point…
Below you’ll find the first and fairly badass poster art for writer/director Travis Bain’s new flick Throwback, starring Shawn Brack, Anthony Ring, Melanie Serafin, and Vernon Wells of The Road Warrior and Commando fame.
“From the get-go I knew I wanted an illustrated poster rather than your typical modern ‘floating heads’ Photoshop design,” Bain says of the design by Brazilian artist Juarez Ricci. “Juarez’s work reminds me of the old Drew Struzan and Richard Amsel posters I grew up with, so he was a natural choice to create this artwork.” Like it?

Throwback recently premiered at the Bram Stoker International Film Festival in England, and Australian and North American premieres are expected to be announced over the coming months. Already the film has received strong interest from the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in New York, which recently invited Bain to submit Throwback for consideration for its 2014 event.
Throwback is expected to be released on DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD in 2014.
Throwback follows two modern-day treasure hunters, a female park ranger, and an unhinged ex-cop as they tangle with a Bigfoot-type monster known as a Yowie in the remote jungles of northern Australia.
