Leonard Nimoy To Speak At Hero Complex Film Festival In LA
A brand new film festival is set for June 11-13 at the Mann Chinese 6 in Hollywood. Called the Hero Complex, the fest will showcase 5 different films with on-stage appearances from famous film makers including Leonard Nimoy.
The five films showcased will be presented on separate nights starting on Friday June 11th with "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home". Voyage will be followed by a Q&A session with the movie's star and director, television and film icon Leonard Nimoy.
On Saturday, director Christopher Nolan goes back to Gotham with "The Dark Knight," the billion-dollar smash hit that many fans consider to be the zenith of superhero cinema. The Batman film is the second half of a Nolan double-feature -- the gripping thriller "Insomnia" opens the program, and the filmmaker will appear on stage between the two films. He will also bring along sneak footage from the highly anticipated July film "Inception."
On Sunday, it's a double feature with two of the most influential science-fiction films ever -- Ridley Scott's "Alien" and "Blade Runner." The Oscar-winning filmmaker will appear on stage between the two classics to discuss the powerful legacy of "Blade Runner" as well as his past (and future) with the deep-space horror franchise "Alien."
Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday morning, check back here at the Hero Complex blog for purchase details. Also, this Sunday's edition of the Los Angeles Times will have a full-page ad with more information about the on-sale. (source LA Times)
