Apple Trailers premiered a shiny new trailer for Don Coscarelli’s JOHN DIES AT THE END, and it’s a cavalcade of weird and amazing. I cannot gush enough how excited I am for this film, which should be very evident if you’re a daily reader of Icons (I posted about it here, here, and here)! The film bows onto VOD December 27th, and hits limited theaters January 25th, 2013, so the torturous anticipation is almost over! To tide you over, watch the trailer several times (like I have), or read the novel of the same name (like I’ve been meaning to do).
Are you jonzed for the directorial return of Don Coscarelli? Are you a major fan of the book and cannot wait to see your favorite scenes translated to the big screen? As always, sound off in the comments!
Synopsis: “In John Dies at the End, it’s all about the Soy Sauce, a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. Users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly, a silent otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John (Rob Mayes) and David (Chase Williamson), a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can’t.
Adapted from David Wong’s audacious trans-genre horror novel, JOHN DIES AT THE END is written and directed by Don Coscarelli (Bubba Ho-Tep) and also stars Clancy Brown, Glynn Turman and Paul Giamatti.”
