Moonwalkers (LIMITED SCREENINGS)
What if Apollo 11 never actually made it to the moon? What if, in reality, the famous images of the moon landing were shot in a studio under direction of the US government?
This is the premise of a totally plausible conspiracy theory that takes us to London in the swinging sixties, where a stubborn CIA agent (RON PERLMAN) is searching for famed director Stanley Kubrick in order to pull off this ruse. Instead, after failing to locate Kubrick he’s forced to team up with a seedy rock band manager (RUPERT GRINT) to try and execute the biggest con of all time in this riotous, high-tempo action-comedy.
Directed by Antoine Bardou-Jacquet
Runtime 107 minutes
"Ron Perlman commandingly strolls through 'Moonwalkers' like a modern-day Lee Marvin...Kubrick references abound...[director] Bardot-Jacquet and writer Dean Craig fuse a 1960s-era British farce with the cynical juvenilia of Kubrick's early comedies"
"Cheerfully insane...[an] entertaining trip through the looking glass. Perlman's deadpan, rock-of-granite persona is put to perfect use...This is a cheeky, madcap romp"
