MY PROFILE

Justin Lin is the director most associated with The Fast and The Furious franchise, with four of the six films helmed by him. In terms of box office he’s a very successful director. Yet, he has never directed an HTG film. Until now. Lucian has picked Lin to go behind the camera of his upcoming film Car Wars.

“I wanted someone who really knew cars and action” Lucian commented. “And I wanted someone with a decent record. So I checked with Marlowe to see where Lin would fall on the talent scale and was pleased with the results. Too often people assume unlisted means minimal talent score. That simply isn’t the case. Lin will bring some decent star power to my film alongside a big name star and a solid character actor in the top two roles.”

Car Wars is based on the Steve Jackson game set fifty years in the future. In it, “autodueling” has become a popular sport. Suped up cars decked out with all manner of armaments and armor do battle for fame and riches. While most battles are fatal the successful drivers can have cloned bodies created for themselves and have their memories restored after death. But what happens when a driver’s luck is running low and he can’t afford a new clone body? It means death in the game becomes very real. That’s the situation Rick, the lead role in the film, finds himself in. Over the objections of his faithful mechanic Gus, he enters a race that could be his last. Win and he’s back on his feet. Lose and he’s six feet under.

Car Wars hits virtual theaters August 9th from Horizon Pictures.

It’s a well-known fact that Lucian Carter lives in Toronto, Ontario, Canada when he is away from HTG Hollywood. A few months ago, Lucian partnered with the Ontario Tourism Board to bring a major TCW event to Toronto. TCW 12 (counting the one season which ran live at the Hollywood Coliseum) was shot entirely in Canada with events in Vancouver, Calgary and Winnipeg. The season culminated with TCW Total Mayhem 2, which was held at the Air Canada center in Toronto.

The Air Canada Center is home to both the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Raptors of the NBA. “It would have been nice to hold an event at Maple Leaf Gardens, but that’s mostly a supermarket these days,” commented Lucian. “Still it will nice to put on a big show for my hometown crowd.” When asked why he did not appear at the big show, Lucian responded “I think my days of appearing on camera are over. Last time I did I got stabbed with a screwdriver.

Among the matches on the card were Canadian Dan Paysan challenging Mexican Champagne Lover for the Hardcore title, new team of Rick Law and Ken Anderson challenging the Hardys for the tag belts and another Canadian: Trish Stratus attempting to regain the Women’s championship from Awesome Kong. But the crown jewel of the event was the Total Mayhem match where Behemoth, Ricky Dale Johnson, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Chris Jericho (who was born in New York but raised in Canada) and a mystery competitor all squared off with the Heavyweight title on the line. We don’t want to spoil the event with it still being in theaters, so go check it out already!

“The Total Mayhem match has only been seen on the big screen once before, back in 2008.” Lucian explains. “It’s probably the most complex match we’ve ever done. I think it’s truly exciting and unpredictable and should be a lot of fun for our fans.”

TCW Total Mayhem 2 hit theaters back on April 19 from Ship of Fooles Studio, which is now Horizon Pictures.

Looking at the Release Calendar, I noticed that there are no new movies hitting theaters this week. I don’t know about you, but I’m happy to have the week off to go to HTG Theaters and enjoy one of the twenty movies already in theaters. Summer has been very busy and productive, but it hasn’t left me much time to check out any of the new movies. Lets take a look at some of the recent choices.

Dead Rising: Cataclysm
Released by AmyLand Studios and produced by KillerCroc Productions (Terror Shark, Frontier), the low budget horror movie stars Matthew Fox and Vanessa Hudgens (pictured above) along with Michael B Silver, Andrew Wilson, and Bill Nighy. The adaption of the hit game features characters from both Dead Rising and Dead rising 2 in a new short story- at 30 pages, it is a quick movie to see when you have some free time. If you have some extra time, be the first to review the flick!

Barton Hollow
Kinetic Films is quickly making a name for themselves, following up the interesting arthosue family film Tortoise and Hare with an equally interesting and western influenced drama from drejr29 Films. It stars Mia Wasikowska and John Hawkes (picture above) with Dane DeHaan and Sam Rockwell rounding out the top four. Taking on supporting roles are Ezra Miller, William H. Macy, and Mary Louise Parker. Like Dead Rising: Cataclysm, this short movie could also use its first review.

Chains of Youth
Looking to sit back and take your time reading a feature film? Try this Anton Yelchin and Diane Kruger headlined drama written by the HTG Golden Yoda winning producer Tesla. Early reviews average 78.5 with Goliathus saying “there’s no doubt that this is a very enjoyable film… it is a great experience” and Brianc2008 saying that he can “recommend giving this film a shot if you want a fairly good read.” The movie also stars John Goodman, Leann Hunley, and Topher Grace.

If you are bored this weekend, take a trip over to the HTG Theater and enjoy one of the many movies currently playing!
