Fans of author and screenwriter Joe R. Lansdale have something to look forward to later this year when All Hail the Popcorn King, a documentary chronicling Lansdale’s life and career will see a wide release. The documentary has previously toured smaller venues around the U.S.
From the official synopsis of the documentary:
With Squee Projects’ All Hail the Popcorn King, filmmaker Hansi Oppenheimer paints a vivid picture of award-winning author and screenwriter Joe R.Lansdale (“Bubba Ho-Tep”, “Cold in July”) in what’s been described as a “five star” film (GrimdarkMagazine). Chronicling the life and career of the Lone Star State’s “writer of the purple rage” (The Austin Chronicle), the acclaimed documentary also features new interviews with the likes of Bruce Campbell, James Purefoy, Joe Hill, Don Coscarelli, Mick Garris, Del Howison, Amber Benson, novelist David J. Schow and former Fangoria editor Tony Timpone.
The trailer provides a glimpse at the colorful writer, a native Texan with a matter-of-fact manner and a larger than life personality.
This is definitely going to be a must-watch for fans of Lansdale’s work. Check out the trailer below, and let us know what you think in the comments!
