EW CapeTown Film Festival Announced April 30 - May 6

Remember how I just reported on the Hero Complex Film Festival coming back this May? Well, Geoff Boucher, former head of Hero Complex moving to Entertainment Weekly and taking the reigns has created the

Entertainment Weekly CapeTown Festival
4/30- 5/6
Egyptian Theatre

Whose digging the poster?

Details go up April 4 and then then the tickets April 8th, no official site is up as I write this. I'll be sure to update you with all the goodies. Get tickets early,  Hero Complex use to sell out and I have no doubt this will too.

You can now say you leave in film nerd nirvana. We already get so many special screenings, but now two nerd film fests a few weeks from each other, just too great! The Cape Town festival will cover superhero to just classic beloved fan films

What info out so far is a special screening of Escape from New York with a Q and A with Kurt Russel at the Egyptian May 3 . I hope Geoff asks him his feelings to how bad the Thing prequel was.

-A  free preview presentation of the season three premiere of Falling Skies, TNT

-Return of the Jedi on Star Wars day (Star Wars Day?) Saturday, May 4. It will play four times, you know the actors in it might show up, details to come.

-Rumors of an Iron Man 3, both Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr. came by for Hero Complex and the film comes out in May.

Best part to me, not at LA Live just like Hero Complex. It's just such a bad place to do anything. Great theater there, but parking and dining are ridiculous and there's nothing to do near by.
