It's a HARD CORE HOLIDAY as the long awaited sequel Hard Core Logo 2 goes day and date on DVD in the US with the Blu-ray of the original Hard Core Logo on November 20, 2012. Both films will debut on iTunes US on the same date.
The followup to Bruce MacDonald(Pontypool)'s rock & roll film classic was decades in the making but well worth the wait. Starring McDonald, Care Failure of the band Die Mannequin and Julian Richings (Hard Core Logo, Cube), Hard Core Logo 2 premiered at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival to enthusiastic reviews ("smartass fun" - The Georgia Straight). The film follows Bruce McDonald, the director of the original movie, who finds himself involved with Hard Core Logo once again when a singer claims she is being possessed by the ghost of the band's lead singer, Joe Dick.
And if audiences don't remember Hard Core Logo, long in moratorium, then they can pick up "the best rock 'n' roll movie in the history of rock 'n' roll movies" (John Griffin, Montreal Gazzette) on a brand new Blu-ray. Originally released in theatres in 1996 and painstakingly restored under MacDonald's supervision to 16x9 anamorphic and high definition, the original Hard Core Logo is being celebrated with a screening at the Alamo Drafthouse on Monday, November 19th as part of the Drafthouse's Music Mondays series in Austin, Texas.
The film follows punk band Hard Core Logo on a harrowing last-gasp reunion tour throughout western Canada. As magnetic lead-singer Joe Dick holds the group together through sheer force of will, all the tensions and pitfalls of life on the road come bubbling to the surface. Also featuring an appearance by Joey Ramone, Hard Core Logo is one of Canada's most acclaimed films. The jammed Blu-ray release includes the full-length feature Hard Core Logo 2 as one of the huge package of bonus features.
"VSC is thrilled to be continuing our relationship with Shadow Shows and Bruce McDonald with the long-awaited launch of this Blu-ray," said VSC President Jonathan Gross, himself a former rock critic. " The restoration process reconstituted the soul of this rock and roll classic. The addition of Hard Core Logo 2 really "amps" up this release."
