For many die hard Veronica Mars fans, there’s few movie trailers this year as rewarding as the one above for the Kickstarter-funded film follow-up of the cult hit. What’s great is the trailer carries the same tone and energy as the television series.
80S ACTION MOVIE—KUNG FURY—REWARDS YOU WITH A ROUNDHOUSE TO YOUR NOSTALGIA
When a company called Laser Unicorns announces they’re trying to make a movie, you just know it’s going to be over-the-top and Kung Fury, their latest project, is exactly that.
Kung Fury is an 80s-inspired action comedy that is full of arcade-robots, dinosaurs, nazis, vikings, norse gods, mutants, and a super kung fu cop. The project is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter to complete a 30 minute feature.
According to the Kickstarter page, the movie is mostly done but needs funding to hire visual effects artists to put the final touches on the movie. Based on the short trailer, the movie is looking incredible and if they can reach $1 million in funding, they promise a full feature film.
About Kung Fury: During an unfortunate series of events a friend of Kung Fury is assassinated by the most dangerous kung fu master criminal of all time; Adolf Hitler, a.k.a Kung Führer. Kung Fury decides to travel back in time, to Nazi Germany, in order to kill Hitler and end the Nazi empire once and for all.
But out of that chaos will come some really amazing things. And right now there are amazing opportunities for young people coming into the industry to say, ‘Hey, I think I’m going to do this and there’s nobody to stop me.’
Growing up with my Dad blasting Kenny G’s MIracles: The Holiday Album every Christmas, I never thought I’d be excited about a movie about the man who held the longest note ever recorded on a saxophone, but here I am doing just that. Ladies & Gentleman, Kenny: A Documentary in G. Heads up, this may be your only time to grip Sax Wax and Sax Polish. Just sayin’.
