Toxie’s Back!posted in `Roids |
Greetings from Tromaville!
Just like Harvey Weinstein, Woody Allen, and Martin Scorsese, we’re going to pay tribute to one of the most sensitive and respected artists of all time: Roman Polanski. Little known fact that one of the most famous and innovative scenes in cinema history from The Toxic Avenger was inspired by Polanski, who infamously gave champagne and Quaaludes to a 13-year-old and sodomized her. We took the PPP (Polanski Pedophile Project) one step further: we crushed the child’s head with an automobile!
The Toxic Avenger made history because it’s the only movie which features a child’s head getting crushed by an automobile that was made into an environmentally correct Saturday morning cartoon for children whom Roman Polanski could have drugged and sodomized. Even though there have been four feature length films, an animated series, a Marvel comic, a novelization, and stage musical adaptation, the Troma Team is bringing Toxie into the digital age with The Toxic Avenger 5: The Toxic Twins.
The Toxic Avenger 5 will be an interactive Toxie as a making-of will be shot and shown by our broadcasting partner. Each segment will be broadcast with a sneak peak at edited footage! Fans will be able to provide feedback to the producers to create a totally unique and fully interactive filmmaking experience, culminating in the North American broadcast premiere of The Toxic Avenger 5. Troma will be blazing the trail through the digital age as this installment of Toxie will be shot in high-def!
Troma’s 35th year is proving to be one of our strongest yet. In addition to our strong slate of new movies and productions, we’ll be releasing a new blu-ray every month starting in January. There’s also a remake of the Troma classic Mother’s Day in the works from producer Brett Ratner (Rush Hour) and director Darren Lynn Bousman (the Saw sequels).
Thinking about the upcoming year for Troma is really getting me hot. Oh wait, I think that’s the acid flashback kicking in again. I’m going to trip, so I’ll be turning this over to our resident Troma Team Reporter who will be shining a light on one of the most pivotal periods in Troma’s history.
