In addition, ScreenX will expand the landscapes in the film, expanding the groundbreaking visual clarity of Gemini Man into the immersive and panoramic screens of ScreenX.
The announcement between the two companies follows past successful releases of A Quiet Place, Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Bumblebee, and Crawl in 4DX, another immersive technology from CJ 4DPLEX that features motion seating and environmental effects ranging from water, scent, wind, fog, snow and more to elevate the 2D filmgoing experience into the fourth dimension.

“With the success of Paramount Pictures’ films in 4DX, we are thrilled to continue the partnership and introduce ‘Gemini Man’ as the first Paramount Pictures’ title to be screened in the immersive ScreenX format,” said Mark Viane, President of International Theatrical Distribution at Paramount Pictures. “Audiences will be amazed by the capabilities of the ScreenX technology, which will offer stunning visuals and action sequences expanded onto the side screens.”
ScreenX has quickly enhanced its international reach, successfully screening Hollywood blockbusters and local feature films alike, including a record of ten titles released in ScreenX this year with additional titles to be announced in the coming weeks. Altogether, the emerging cinema technology format has performed to a record-breaking $20M at the global box office this year.

SLAYER: THE REPENTLESS KILLOGY in Theaters Worldwide on Nov. 6
Slayer The Repentless Trilogy is getting a release ONE NIGHT ONLY on November 6th from our friends at Trafalgar. Get your tickets now!
Slayer – Tom Araya, Kerry King, Gary Holt and Paul Bostaph – along with Trafalgar Releasing, Nuclear Blast Records and Prime Zero Productions, are pleased to announce the upcoming release of the new short narrative film and concert, Slayer: The RepentlessKillogy, coming to cinemas worldwide for a one-night event on November 6. Due to be screened in over 1,500 cinemas around the world, tickets will be on sale from October 9 from Slayer.Film.
Revenge, murder, bloodshed and retribution. The Repentless Killogy film was written and directed by BJ McDonnell, who conceived and directed the three brutal music videos – “You Against You,” “Repentless,” and “Pride in Prejudice”- for Slayer’s final studio album Repentless (2015).
“When we set out to do these initial three videos,” said McDonnell, “our intention was to continue the saga of Slayer and Wyatt at some point down the line. But this is the band’s final album and world tour so this story, the three videos and the “Repentless” live concert at The Forum, is a perfect way to wrap up. This is the end of the monsters.”
Uncompromising and unmissable, part one of Slayer: The Repentless Killogy begins with the powerful short narrative film that brings together the music of Slayer and the grisly story they wanted to tell. Opening with the trilogy of music videos assembled as one chronological storyline, we are introduced to the narrative’s main character Wyatt, a former Neo Nazi associated with a gang known as “The Hand Brotherhood,” whose signature mark was a bloody handprint left after a murder had taken place.
The Repentless Killogy stars many of the actors who appeared in the original video series: Jason Trost (Beats of Rage, Hatchet III) as Wyatt, Danny Trejo (Machete, From Dusk Til Dawn), Richard Speight (Band of Brothers, Supernatural), Derek Mears (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Jessica Pimentel (Orange Is The New Black), Tyler Mane (X-Men, Halloween II), Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Caroline Williams (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Sharknado 4), and Sean Whalen (Twister, The People Under The Stairs).
Part two of The Repentless Killogy features Slayer’s entire live set performed at the Los Angeles Forum on August 5, 2017, and was directed by Wayne Isham who has directed videos for artists including Metallica, Foo Fighters, Michael Jackson, Kelly Clarkson, and Britney Spears. Presented in front of one of the most striking stage productions of the band’s career, Slayer performs fan-favourites including “South of Heaven,” “War Ensemble,” “Mandatory Suicide,” “Dead Skin Mask,” “Raining Blood,” and “Angel of Death.”
Following the global theatrical premiere, on November 8, the film will be available digitally and on Blu-ray, and the soundtrack from that concert will be released as both a two-disc vinyl and two CD packages.
Gerardo Martinez of Nuclear Blast Records said: “When Slayer, the RSE family, BJ and I were talking about how thrilled we were with the outcome of thee three videos from ‘Repentless,’ never did we imagine that what we had in our hands was basically this piece of brutality that would end up in movie theaters world-wide. Everything from matching Slayer’s ferocity and heaviness in video form, to expanding into a longer narrative and live show has created the perfect Slayer atmosphere. We are beyond thrilled to give fans around the world the opportunity to join us on November 6 to witness a pure slab of f*ckin’ insanity!”
Marc Allenby, CEO of Trafalgar Releasing added: “Trafalgar Releasing are pleased to be collaborating with Slayer, the team at Nuclear Blast and the RSE Group on the upcoming global cinema release of Slayer: The Repentless Killogy. The film expertly demonstrates how Slayer has become one of the most influential metal bands of the last three decades, bringing together the creative forces of film and music to create a must see on the big screen. We look forward to seeing how fans react when they come together for this unique experience.”
2019 has seen a strong year for music releases from Trafalgar Releasing in cinema around the world. Recent successes include BRING THE SOUL: THE MOVIE, which became the single largest event cinema release globally, Grateful Dead’s9th Annual Meet-Up at the Movies, Tribeca documentary Between Me and My Mind about Phish frontman, Trey Anastasio, Rush Cinema Strangiato 2019 and The Cure: Anniversary 1978-2018 Live in Hyde Park London. Today sees the global release of Roger Waters Us + Them, which received its World Premiere at the International Venice Film Festival last month.
Trafalgar Releasing’s upcoming music slate also includes Metallica and San Francisco Symphony: S&M², Depeche Mode: SPIRITS in the Forest and Shakira in Concert: El Dorado World Tour. The London based outfit have previously released films including Coldplay: A Head Full of Dreams, The Music Center presents Joni 75: A Birthday Celebration, Khalid Free Spirit, One More Time with Feeling, among others.
Slayer: The Repentless Killogy will be screened in cinemas around the world on November 6. Tickets are on-sale from October 9 at Slayer.Film, where fans can find the most up-to-date information regarding participating theaters and sign up for event alerts.

Upon its initial release in October 2009, THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL was hailed by critics everywhere. The New York Times‘ Manohla Dargis said West “has come up with a period pastiche that mimics the low-res vibe and look of early-1980s horror. And he’s done it with more shiver than splat. … Mr. West doesn’t just rise to the horrific occasion, he also revels in its simplicity, squeezing chills by turning on the lights, squeaking the floorboards and, in a heart-thumping scene, sending his heroine up the unavoidable stairs. … After years of vivisectionist splatter, here is a horror movie with real shivers.”
A creaky Victorian mansion, a graveyard, a lunar eclipse and a pretty college girl: filmmaker West brought back all the elements of classic ’80s horror – with a modern twist – in THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL. West (The Innkeepers, In a Valley of Violence) set his tale in the early 1980s and created an old-school atmosphere of dread and “satanic panic” that rivaled the best of that classic era of shockers.
The film has a classic, deceptively simple set-up. Samantha (Jocelin Donahue, Dead Awake, He‘s Just Not That Into You), a pretty college sophomore, needs to come up with extra cash to pay the rent in her new apartment. She accepts a babysitting job from Mr. Ulman (Tom Noonan, Manhunter, The Pledge), a tall, creepy man who lives in a gloomy old house near a cemetery in the woods. Samantha soon learns that Ulman and his wife (Mary Woronov, The Devil‘s Rejects, Eating Raoul) don’t even have a child, but Ulman explains that he simply needs Samantha to keep an eye on his elderly mother-in-law while he and his wife go out to celebrate the lunar eclipse. Also in the cast is the then-rising indie It Girl, Greta Gerwig.
Roger Ebert wrote in the Chicago Sun-Times that West is “an admirer of classic horror films and understands that if there’s anything scarier than haunted house, it’s a possibly haunted house.” The Los Angeles Times‘ Roger Abele said West “shrewdly uses our entire sense memory of horror movie experiences to bring his seen-it-all audience to a jittery state of unnerving, shoe-dropping anticipation.”
