Hello all, this is Mad Dashiell here and thank you for joining me today.
Fantasia Film Festival 2018 is is on the way. Let us ring it in by celebrating this exclusive hand-painted poster for one of the most amazingly titled features to make its way for its world premiere. The stoic being, the sentinel of the bar in THE BIG LEBOWSKI is THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN BIGFOOT. Sam Elliott as the titular World War II veteran who secretly assassinated Hitler before being recruited by the FBI and The Royal Canadian Mounted Police to take out Bigfoot.
Written and directed by Robert D. Krzykowski (ELSIE HOOPER), and produced by John Sayles (Lone Star), THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN BIGFOOT also stars Aidan Turner (THE HOBBIT series), Caitlin Fitzgerald (ALWAYS SHINE), Ron Livingston (OFFICE SPACE) and Larry Miller (PRETTY WOMAN). The film premieres at Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal this next month.
The official breakdown:
Sam Elliott (TOMBSTONE, ROAD HOUSE) stars as a legendary World War II veteran who many years ago assassinated Adolf Hitler – an incredible secret that he’s frustratingly unable to share with the world. One day, just as he’s coming to terms with rounding out his life, Calvin gets a visit from the FBI and The Royal Canadian Mounted Police. They need him to take out Bigfoot. This wondrous feature debut from writer/director Robert D. Krzykowski features visual effects by celebrated two-time Academy Award Winner Douglas Trumbull (2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, BLADE RUNNER), who also co-produced alongside the great John Sayles (EIGHT MEN OUT) and Lucky McKee (THE WOMAN). A fantastical discourse on the melancholia of old age and a singular blast of entertaining wit, THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT also stars Aidan Turner (THE HOBBIT trilogy), Caitlin FitzGerald (Showtime’s “Masters of Sex”), and Ron Livingston (OFFICE SPACE).
-Worthy note: Another interesting premiere- Dans La Brume and Tales from the Hood 2!
