We're pleased to announce that Austin-based filmmaker Robert Rodriguez and director Nimród Antal will present a "First Look" at their upcoming motion picture Predators, at SXSW on March 12, 2010.
A bold new chapter in the Predator universe, Predators was shot on location under Rodriguez's creative auspices at the filmmaker's Austin-based Troublemaker Studios, and is directed by Nimród Antal. The film stars Adrien Brody as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they've been brought together on an alien planet... as prey. In addition to Adrien Brody, the film stars Topher Grace, Alice Braga, and Laurence Fishburne.
The special presentation of Predators will take place at the Alamo Ritz Theater in downtown Austin, at 10:15pm. Doors open at 9:45pm, and the special event is only open to SXSW Badge-holders on a first-come, first-served basis. An audience Q&A follows the unveiling.
We are also announcing the world premiere of Géla Babluani's 13, the previously announced Super Secret TBA as part of the SX Fantastic midnight section. 13, a remake of the 2005 French film 13 Tzameti, also directed by Babluani, stars Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Ben Gazzara, and Alexander Skarsgard. The thriller follows the story of Vince, who unwittingly becomes involved in a degenerate, clandestine world of mental chaos behind closed doors. The screening will take place at Midnight on Saturday, March 13 at the Alamo South Lamar Theater.
