Bitch Slap to show at TIFF

Posted by LiveFor on July 22, 2009

It looks as if Bitch Slap will be showing at Toronto International Film Festival.

Mix three bad girls, one desert, a ruthless crime lord, 1,473 exotic weapons, $206 million in stolen diamonds and more cleavage than you can shake a stick at, and you’ll get Bitch Slap – a rip-roaring, sexy mashup of the audacious sexploitation films of the sixties and seventies. Like Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! injected with a lethal cocktail of estrogen, pheromones and steroids, Bitch Slap hits hard with machine gun battles, corny jokes, knock-‘em-out fisticuffs and even a refreshing slow-motion water fight.

When three busty babes arrive at a desert hideaway to steal over $200 million from a ruthless underworld kingpin, things quickly spiral out of control. Hel (Erin Cummings), the caper’s mastermind, is a corporate bombshell with a taste for vengeance. Trixie (Julia Voth) is the bait, a gorgeous stripper with a heart of gold and a dress to match, irresistible to men and women alike. Camero (Ameríca Olivo) is the drug-running, man-hating psycho killer who trusts nobody but herself. Allegiances are switched, truths are revealed, criminals are unmasked (and undressed) and nothing is quite what it seems as the fate of the world is precariously balanced between this trio of smouldering, sexy femmes fatales.

Bitch Slap knows never to take itself too seriously. Thanks to its tongue-in-cheek script, the film flips around tired sexual stereotypes and clichés. Director Rick Jacobson wrote and produced this latest feature with partner Eric Gruendemann, with whom he first worked on the cult TV sensations Xena: Warrior Princess and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. The three strong-willed actresses are also to be credited for Bitch Slap’s wild thrills. They were put through their paces by action director Zoe Bell, Uma Thurman’s stunt double for Kill Bill who starred in Death Proof and can be seen at this year’s Festival as a roller derby hellcat in Drew Barrymore’s Whip It!

The cast tossed aside any prim, ladylike mannerisms for a tough rumble in the dirt, and it’s clear they’re having a grand time whooping it up in this femme-tastic fight fantasy. Bitch Slap is full of clever nods to the down-and-dirty sexploitation classics, but these saucy minxes are no copycats – they’re prepared to grab the old genre by the balls, drag it, kick it, crush it and mix it all up.

Gerard Butler becomes Citizen Game

Posted by LiveFor on April 3, 2009

This one totally passed me by but a few days ago Lionsgate has announced through Twitter that Gerard Butler’s movie Game is retitled Citizen Game:

EXCLUSIVE – GAME gets new title – CITIZEN GAME – in theaters 9/44:57 PM Mar 31st from web
lionsgatemovies
Lionsgate Movies

Apparantly it is all to help market the movie, but I think it is a pretty naff rename. Citizen Game – Citizen Kane. It is a crappy pun and I had to double check that it wasn’t an April Fool thing.

Teaser Trailer noticed the name change.

“Set in the near-future, mind-control technology has taken society by storm and a multiplayer on-line game called ‘Slayers’ allows humans control other humans in mass-scale. Simon controls Kable (Gerard Butler) the on-line champion of the game, and with his every move tracked by millions, his ultimate challenge becomes regaining his identity and independence by defeating the game’s mastermind (Hall) through launching an attack on the system that has imprisoned him.”

Cast:– Gerard Butler as Kable, the highest-ranked warrior in the game “Slayers”
– Logan Lerman as Simon, who controls Kable
– Milo Ventimiglia as Rick Rape, described as “Moonraker, silver grill, with a latex outfit making him look like a bumblebee
– Aaron Yoo as Humanez Dude
– Ludacris
– Alison Lohman as Trace
– Kyra Sedgwick as Gina Parker Smith
– Michael C. Hall as Ken Castle
– John Leguizamo as Freek
– Johnny Whitworth as Scotch
– Zoe Bell as Sandra
– Amber Valletta as Angie

It is due out in September.

What do you think about the name change? Do you care?

Angel of Death – Trailer for Zoe Bell web series

Posted by LiveFor on December 24, 2008

Longtime stunts stalwart Zoe Bell came into her own as an actress in “Death Proof,” Quentin Tarantino’s half of 2007’s retro-tastic “Grindhouse” double-feature, but her geek cred looks to keep piling up with a starring role in “Angel of Death,” the upcoming, live-action online series created by comics scribe Ed Brubaker (”Sleeper“).

The first trailer for the series debuted this week on Sony Pictures’ online channel Crackle.com, and along with Bell, it features many faces familiar to genre fans — including Doug Jones (”Hellboy I/II“), Lucy Lawless (”Xena”) and Ted Raimi (”Spider-Man“).

In the series, which will be composed of 8-10 episodes released over 10 weeks, Bell plays a mafia assassin who suffers a catastrophic head wound and subsequently decides to kill the people who once ordered her to kill others. We first spoke to Brubaker back in August about the series, and he shared some details about what viewers can expect when the first episode of “Angel of Death” debuts in 2009.

New Bitch Slap trailer and interview with the 3 leading ladies

Posted by LiveFor on November 18, 2008

Been a while since I mentioned this film on the site so here is the new trailer for the movie, Bitch Slap. It may well be a big pile of rubbish but it does look like a lot of fun in a Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! Russ Meyer kind of vibe. As well as the three female leads mentioned below it also stars the mighty Kevin Sorbo and Lucy Lawless along with their respective partners from the old Hercules and Xena TV shows (they can all be seen here). I posted a load of character posters a while back if you care to take a look at them. Zoe Bell’s character poster of Rawhide came out a bit later and can be seen here. It’s directed by Rick Jacobson.

At its core, ‘Bitch Slap’ follows three bad girls (a down-and-out stripper, a drug-running killer and a corporate powerbroker) as they arrive at a remote desert hideaway to extort and steal $200 Million in diamonds from a ruthless underworld kingpin. Things quickly spin out of control as allegiances change, truths are revealed, other criminals arrive for the score, the fate of the world hangs in the balance and they are forced to confront a villain much worse than they ever expected… themselves. It’s the ultimate morality tale as, one by one, they realize the whole she-bang was a set-up and one of them may not even be human…”

John Campea of The Movie Blog interviewed the three female leads America Olivo (Camero), Julia Voth (Trixie) and Erin Cummings (Hel). The second part of the interview mentions Zoe Bell and an 8 minute fight scene between two of the leads. Here is the interview (it’s in two parts)

How do you like them apples? Will it be up for an Oscar…no, but will you be going to see it or rent it if it goes direct to DVD? What do you think will happen in the plot? There is mention somebody may not be human in it – so what do you think they will be?

New Bitch Slap poster for Zoe Bell’s Character Rawhide

Posted by LiveFor on September 5, 2008

Bitch Slap follows three bad girls (a down-and-out stripper, a drug-running killer and a corporate powerbroker) as they arrive at a remote desert hideaway to extort massive booty from a ruthless underworld kingpin. Things quickly spin out of control as allegiances change, truths are revealed, other criminals arrive for the score, the fate of the world hangs in the balance and they are forced to confront a villain much worse than they ever expected… themselves. It’s the ultimate morality tale as, one by one, they realize the whole “she-bang” was a set-up and one of the film’s characters may not even be human.
