Hey HTF friends, I just wanted to share one of the films I scored with you all that you all should be able to see theatrically June 1st...(some in limited markets May 18th). The film is called Crooked Arrows and it is the first mainstream hollywood movie about Lacrosse. The film stars Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), Gil Birmingham (Twilight), Chelsea Rickets and Crystal Allen. It has truly been an honor and exciting experience working on and scoring this wonderful family and inspirational film. The film is directed by veteran director Steve Rash (Buddy HollyStory, Can't Buy Me Love). The film is produced by J. Todd Harris (The Kids Are All Right) and Mitchell Peck (Priest). It will have a limited theatrical release in specific "lacrosse focused" markets of the northeast on May 18th...but then will open nationally in theaters everywhere June 1st. It is an independently produced and released film though...so don't expect it in thousands of screens like Avengers or anything. But it will be on hundreds of screens by June 1st in most all major cities. For our international friends, it will also be released theatrically around the world as well, in Canada, the UK and other European countries including an european premiere in the Netherlands. The full official synopsis of the film is the following: A mixed-blood Native American, Joe Logan, eager to modernize his reservation, must first prove himself to his father, the traditionalist Tribal Chairman, by rediscovering his spirit. He is tasked with coaching the reservation’s high school lacrosse team which competes against the better equipped and better trained players of the elite Prep School League. Joe inspires the Native American boys and teaches them the true meaning of tribal pride. Ignited by their heritage and believing in their new-found potential, coach and team climb an uphill battle to the state championship finals against their privileged prep school rivals…will they win? Crooked Arrows is an original, uplifting sports movie in the tradition of such classics as Mighty Ducks, Bad News Bears, Hoosiers, and Bend It Like Beckham–set in the fresh, contemporary worlds of Native American reservations, prep schools, and lacrosse… If you would like to read more, the official film website is at: www.crookedarrows.com and if you would like to help spread the word to your facebook friends, the film's facebook page is at: www.facebook.com/crookedarrows Here is the official poster: Here is the film's current internet teaser on YouTube: I have been scoring the film since early February. My score was performed by the Hollywood Studio Symphony orchestra in mid March conducted by yours truly. I don't know if we will have a soundtrack release yet. For any facebook friends of mine, there is a video on my wall from the scoring session. Feel free to friend me. We are finishing the film Dub this monday the 16th...and then the marketing campaign kicks in till the releases. This Tuesday, lead actor Brandon Routh will appear on the TV show EXTRA interviewed by Mario Lopez at The Grove in LA talking about the film and the new theatrical trailer that will run in theaters will also premiere on the show. You can check here for local showtime of EXTRA if you want to check it out, set your DVRs and tell your friends: http://extratv.warnerbros.com/about/whenitson.php For more about Extra At the Grove: http://extratv.warnerbros.com/at_the_grove/ Being a independent film...we will need all the help and support we can get to have a good theatrical run. I can assure you that the film is a good family film. Its test audience screenings have gone incredibly well with high scores across the board of all age groups from young kids to teenagers to parents. It is a good story...inspirational...and a great film featuring America's fastest growing sport, lacrosse, which of course has its roots in Native American culture. I hope you all are able to go see it. I would highly recommend you go opening weekend in your area because independently released films tend to get squeezed out by the big studio films after their first week or so. See you all at the movies!
