Comic-Con 2009 Update #4 – The Collector

Here’s a movie screening we unfortunately were not able to make this past Friday night at Comic-Con 2009, but I felt like I owe a BIG plug to their publicist for his kindness and hospitality in inviting us to the premiere of it at San Diego’s Pacific Theatres Gas Lamp Theatre.  From the previews shown on TV alone, this is a MUST-SEE for me this coming weekend!  What movie am I talking about?  Oh yeah…I guess I should mention that huh?  Well the movie needs no introduction, as The Collector will be thrilling and gathering victims this Friday, July 31stThe Collector is brought to you by the ingenius minds of director/writer Marcus Dunstan and writer Patrick Melton (FEAST, SAW IV, V & VI).  Need I say more?

The Collector follows the story of handyman and ex-con Arkin, who aims to repay a debt to his ex-wife by robbing his new employer’s country home.  Unfortunately for Arkin, a far worse enemy has already laid claim to the property – and the family. As the seconds tick down to midnight, Arkin becomes a reluctant hero trapped by a masked “Collector” in a maze of lethal invention – the Spanish Inquisition as imagined by Rube Goldberg – while trying to rescue the very family he came to rob.     

The project, produced by Fortress Features’ Brett Forbes and Patrick Rizzotti and Imaginarium Entertainment Group’s Julie Richardson, stars Josh Stewart (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Criminal Minds), Daniella Alonso (Friday Night Lights, The Hills Have Eyes 2), Michael Reilly Burke (Lincoln Heights, 24), Andrea Roth (Rescue Me, War), Madeline Zima (Californication, The Hand That Rocks the Cradle), Karley Scott-Collins (Pulse 2, The Class), Robert Wisdom (The Wire, The Forgotten) and Juan Fernandez (The Lost City, A Man Apart).
