So the big exciting thing that happened last Wednesday was meeting Nick and Amir of Brit Films who are distributing Ten Dead Men in the UK. We had some photos taken and did an interview which went well - nice to be interviewed by a third party instead of us interviewing each other like we did for the behind the scenes. It's great to actually have some communication with the people releasing the DVD too, as with the US and other releases it's been completely out of our hands. Brit Films have a posh website at http://www.britfilms.tv/ and the announcement about Ten Dead Men is here. I also recommend checking out their podcast which is pretty well produced and quite funny.
I did go off an have other adventures in London that day but it seems like months ago now and luckily other more relevant stuff has appeared that means I won't have to bore you with all that. First off there is a review at Flash Bang: Action Movie Reviews here. I was saying for ages that if people didn't get the voiceover they wouldn't get the film, whereas those who did get seem to genuinely enjoy the film as a whole. However, there have now been a couple of reviews from people who didn't get the voiceover but still liked the film, which is good to know. This one is notable also for outing Parker and Garrett.
Apologies for turning this into one big fat advert, but the release date for the UK Region 2 DVD is 04/05/09 and you can now pre-order it from Play and Amazon. Here is the rather spectacular list of special features:
