NYAFF2012@fpnyc.com

by June 24th!

Ace Attorney (Japan, 2012) – Takashi Miike brings one of the world’s most popular Gameboy and Nintendo DS games to the big screen and it’s all about…lawyers? Prepare to have your mind blown by this mashup of The Practice and The Avengers!

Love Strikes (Japan, 2012) – based on a wildly successful manga and anime series, it’s all about an unassuming young man who suddenly hits one of those strange streaks when girls find him wildly appealing. Star Masami Nagasawa will attend the screenings.

GYO (Japan 2012) – Who would have thought the apocalypse would come in the form of bio-mechanical fart-propelled mutant zombie fish that spontaneously sprout spindly mechanical legs? Who else but the famed horror manga artist Junji Ito, the psycho genius behind such impossibly off-kilter creations as Tomie and Uzumaki? GYO is the first animated feature adapted from one of the creep master’s twisted tales.

“THE STORY OF ROCK ‘N’ ROLL COMICS” Ticket/DVD Giveaway!

Email RockNRollComics@fpnyc.com for a chance to win 2 tickets to the 4/23 screening of

“The Story of Rock ‘N’ Roll Comics” as well as a copy of the film on DVD!

The Story of Rock ‘N’ Roll Comics charts the short and controversial life of publisher Todd Loren, whose scandalous series of unauthorized comic book biographies of rock stars enraged and sometimes charmed his subjects, provoked numerous lawsuit threats from the likes of Bon Jovi, Guns N Roses and Skid Row, and eventually led to a landmark First Amendment case, all before he was savagely murdered in 1992. Includes first hand accounts from many of the artists and writers who were inspired and exploited by Loren, along with interviews with Alice Cooper, Mojo Nixon and more.
The directorial debut from filmmaker Ilko Davidov, this documentary examines the life and death of Todd Loren, who gained both acclaim and ridicule for publishing his controversial Rock ‘N’ Roll Comics before being murdered in 1992. Using interviews with the likes of Alice Cooper and Mojo Nixon as well as home-movie footage of Loren, Davidov attempts to shed some light on Loren’s mystery-shrouded slaying.

But before the screening, come to Forbidden Planet NYC and get your DVD signed by our special guests: the director of the film and several artists from the original “Rock ‘N’ Roll Comics” books!
