When RiffTrax hit their $100,000 goal trying to raise the funds needed to secure the rights to lampoon the disastrous 1998 Godzilla, they set a $250,000 stretch goal to nab the rights to Anaconda for their Halloween show…
RiffTrax fans clearly have a lot of disposable income.
We’re just a month out from hearing Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett unleash a Category 5 riffing on Sharknado at theaters around the country on July 10th.
Thanks to a very successful Kickstarter, Roland Emmerich’s Godzilla will get similar treatment on August 14th. How successful, you ask?
So successful was the Kickstarter that they even surpassed the $250,000 stretch goal to ensure Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube, Jon Voight, and a very large Anaconda will get theirs at theaters around the country on October 30th.
The RiffTrax Kickstarter ended with 4,887 fans putting up $265,011.
I believe the final $11 will be used to finance their second stretch goal: the rights to Uwe Boll’s Alone in the Dark.
