When vacationing in Chile, an aging and pampered rock star’s (Antonio Banderas) supermodel wife is suddenly kidnapped by renegades.

THE MAN FROM EARTH: HOLOCENE HITS THEATRES IN OCTOBER

Parade Deck Films have acquired theatrical distribution rights to the new film, THE MAN FROM EARTH: HOLOCENE. A theatrical release date of October 13 has been set for the film with its opening weekend in Los Angeles and New York and a platform release plan to follow.   The new movie from filmmaker Richard Schenkman marks the 10 year anniversary sequel to the 2007 sci-fi cult classic, JEROME BIXBY’S THE MAN FROM EARTH. The original film is currently ranked among IMDb’s top 50 Science Fiction films of all time and was an early digital platform success story on Netflix and Amazon. The sequel stars David Lee Smith, reprising his role from the original film, Vanessa Williams as his companion and Michael Dorn as his colleague.   William Katt also returns for the sequel.

THE MAN FROM EARTH: HOLOCENE catches up with John Oldman (David Lee Smith), the 14,000 year-old “Man from Earth” who is now comfortably hiding in plain sight as a college professor in Northern California. His existence comes crashing down when four students discover his deepest secret, putting his life in grave danger and potentially shaking mankind to its very soul.

Schenkman is still in awe of the reception the original MAN FROM EARTH film received on a worldwide scale. Schenkman shared, “It truly became a cult phenomenon. Even without a major commercial release, the film has garnered well over 140,000 votes on IMDb, and more than 607,000 ratings from Netflix users. It’s played festivals all over the planet, and everywhere I go, I meet fans whose lives have been touched by this picture. It’s truly humbling.”

Despite the international success of the original film, Schenkman resisted making a follow up until he was able to come up with a concept that was on-par with the quality of the original film’s screenplay, the last script ever completed by legendary sci-fi author Jerome Bixby. Fans around the world have been waiting 10 years for more tales of Professor John Oldman.

THE MAN FROM EARTH: HOLOCENE stars David Lee Smith (Fight Club), Vanessa Williams (“Ugly Betty”), Michael Dorn (“Star Trek: The Next Generation”), William Katt (“The Greatest American Hero”), Sterling Knight (“Sonny with a Chance”), Akemi Look (A Wrinkle in Time) and Brittany Curran (“The Magicians”).

Additionally, the 10th Anniversary Special Edition of JEROME BIXBY’S THE MAN FROM EARTH will be released in November 2017 from MVD Entertainment featuring an all-new HD master on both Blu-ray and DVD. The release will include a new 88 minute documentary, THE MAN FROM EARTH: LEGACY, produced by Richard Schenkman chronicling the history of the film and its lasting impact.

Check out the NEW trailer for WHERE’S THE MONEY starring Andrew Bachelor, Logan Paul, and Kat Graham – in theaters October 20 from Lionsgate

Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor (Meet the Blacks) stars in the enlightened comedy, Where’s the Money, arriving in select theaters on October 20 and on Digital HD, DVD, and On Demand October 24 from Lionsgate. Bachelor stars as a scrappy young man from South Central Los Angeles who plots to become the first black member of an all-white college fraternity in order to recover a stash of stolen money hidden in the flophouse-turned-frat house before his crazy, gun-wielding uncle gets there first. He is joined by a star-studded cast, including Kat Graham (“The Vampire Diaries,” All Eyez on Me), YouTube sensation Logan Paul (The Thinning, The Space Between Us), Allen Maldonado (Straight Outta Compton, “Black-ish”), Josh Brener (“Silicon Valley,” The Internship), Devon Werkheiser (Sundown, Bad Sister), and Method Man (Keanu, Trainwreck), with Retta (“Parks and Recreation,” Fracture), with Mike Epps (Girls Trip, Meet the Blacks), and Terry Crews (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” The Expendables 3) in a laugh-out-loud comedy that proves the only color that matters is green!

In this outrageously fresh comedy, Del (Bachelor), a quick-witted young man from the streets of South Central Los Angeles, learns that his still-in-prison father (Epps) and just-out-of-jail uncle (Crews) stole a million dollars and stashed it in the basement of an old flophouse. There’s just one problem: A major university is encroaching on the ’hood and that old flophouse is a newly gentrified (all-white) fraternity house. Now, with the help of his dream woman (Graham) and best friend (Maldonado), Del must rush the frat, ingratiate himself with the fraternity brothers (Paul and Brener), and grab the cash before his crazy, gun-wielding uncle (Crews) or a local gangster (Method Man) get there first.

The Where’s the Money home entertainment release includes video commentary by actors Andrew Bachelor, Josh Brener, and Devon Werkheiser and director Scott Zabielski; a making-of featurette; a bloopers reel; and deleted scenes. The Where’s the Money DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.98.
