Now I know you were all expecting Part III of my EXCLUSIVE interview with Family Feud Executive Producer Pam Barnes tonight… well don’t panic, it’ll be along shortly. It WILL be posted tonight.
But before that, I feel the need to briefly interrupt your regularly scheduled service…
I find this incredibly inspirational… my friend Angus Sampson has co-written, co-directed and starred in the brand new Australian movie ‘The Mule’.
I went to a screening last night and I can tell you it’s a top-notch thriller, with sensational performances right across the board. As well as Angus, it stars HUGO WEAVING, Noni Hazlehurst, Leigh Whannell (Saw, who co-wrote the screenplay with Angus) and John Noble (Lord of the Rings).
They released the movie on iTunes last week, (where it went to #1 in America), and it’s available to buy on Australian iTunes here:
It’ll be available for rental on iTunes from tomorrow, when it’ll also be released here in Australia on DVD and Blu-Ray exclusively at JB HiFi…
I’m full of admiration for Angus in making this all happen, and I reckon his distribution model (whereby an Australian film ISN’T released on a mere handful of cinema screens to poor opening weekend Box Office and then immediate judgemental, lacklustre reviews, based on that Box Office) is truly The Way of the Future…
They’re also having a live World Premiere / global Twitter event this Sunday.
If you get the movie, and press PLAY at 3:00 PM this Sunday (Melbourne time) you can follow along with live tweets from the cast and crew at #TheMuleLive
If you can, please get behind this suspenseful, moving, funny, disturbing film, which was created and distributed with the audience in mind!
A word of warning, though – it’s definitely NOT suitable for children….
