September 29, 2011
Drafthouse Films, the film distribution arm of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema announced the acquistion of North American rights to "Comin' At Ya! 3D" following the premiere of its stunning new restoration at Fantastic Fest 2011. In 1981, armed with exclusively developed, cutting-edge 3D technology co-writer/producer/star Tony Anthony enlisted Italian genre veteran Fernando Baldi to realize the first-ever 3D spaghetti western - a grindhouse-fueled tale of a vengeful gunslinger. Breaking indie box office records, "Comin' At Ya! 3D" is credited with igniting a resurgence of studio-prduced 3D films. Thirty years later, Anthony and producer Tom Stern of STERNCO 3D have broken new frontiers again with the first fully restored classic 3D film in high-definition, utilizing contemporary state-of-art RealD 3D technology. A limited re-release tour is planned for 2012.
"We felt that Drafthouse Films, with their young and aggressive leadership, combined with a new model for 3D distribution, gave us the best chance to reach both longtime fans of the film and new audiences." says Tony Anthony.
"In a barrage of flying arrows, snakes and old-school 3D thrills "Comin' At Ya!" certainly delivers." Drafthouse Films director Evan Husney says. "and matching quintessential 80s style 3D with cutting-edge contemporary technology is going to make for the ultimate 3D experience for movie-goers."
