We posted the red band trailer for The Dead Lands (“Rated R for brutal, bloody violence") a little over a month ago, and will have a review for the film up very soon. I would write a new synopsis for you, but I doubt I can top the one I already wrote: it’s about “a Maori youth who must go get himself a badass to help him reign vengeance upon the buttheads that killed his tribe.” As good as it gets, right there.
And to keep the quote train rolling, here’s one from James Cameron regarding the film:
“A powerful and primal coming of age story that's an absolute adrenaline rush, The Dead Lands is far more than just a great action movie -- it's great cinema.”
- Director James Cameron
The Dead Lands comes out April 17, but if you live in Los Angeles, you and a pal can attend a special screening this Thursday hosted by James Cameron and featuring a Q&A after the film. All you have to do is email me at [email protected] and tell me your favorite James Cameron movie. There’s no right answer, and I imagine there will be a lot of repeats, so just think of this as a fun way to say I will be picking the winner mostly at random. Once you win, I will get you the specifics on where and when this even is taking place.
Good luck! And, you know, make sure you live in or around LA and have no plans Thursday if you enter.
