You've got it marked on your calenders right? June 15, 2010. It's quickly approaching people! The tenth installment of the epic PUPPET MASTER franchise hits DVD shelves on this day and we're almost there! .... Too much?
Alright, now I'm a huge fan of the PUPPET MASTER franchise, which I've stated numerous times, but even I admit I'm taking it a bit far there. But alas, PUPPET MASTER: AXIS OF EVIL is gearing up to hit DVD later this Summer so you can be sure we'll be seeing some goods for the flick to help pimp this shite out! Not too long ago I showed you all an extended trailer for the flick, which can be found below, and today I'm here to show you all some brand new promo art for AXIS OF EVIL!
I'm going to be honest with you... this promo art isn't very exciting. But my eyes spring open whenever I see some PUPPET MASTER news so let's just run with it! Over at PUPPET MASTER creator Charles Band's MySpace page the AXIS OF EVIL producer posted a new blog recently giving us a look at the promo art you see below. Here's the message Band posted along with the picture:
"Thanks go out to all the dedicated fans for making the Puppetmaster Collectors Trunk a huge success! The official release date for Puppetmaster: Axis of Evil is July 27th, but we have an early release date of June 15th for everyone who has ordered the trunk! Puppetmaster: Axis Of Evil is the first new Puppetmaster film in over 10 years and marks the 20th anniversary of the series. About 1300 Collectors Trunks have now been preordered and there's a very good chance it will sell out before it's available on June 15th. So thanks for preordering! AND there is a TON of exciting news coming in the next couple weeks! So look for it."
Awesome! Now take a look at the shot below... Is it just me or is that a ninja puppet? Genius. Now if you're asking yourself what 'Puppetmaster Collectors Trunk' Band is talking about let me school you a bit:
On June 15, 2010, Full Moon is re-releasing Puppet Master in a collector's edition 2-disc set with Puppet Master: Axis of Evil. The set is to include packaging resembling Toulon's trunk, a poster for "Axis of Evil," mini-poster cards for all of the films in the series, and stickers featuring each puppet. The set is available in DVD and Blu-ray, marking Full Moon's first foray into the Blu-ray market, including both their first film (Puppet Master) and their latest film (Axis of Evil, at the time).
They just made a sale to this schmuck! Anyone else out there planning on snatching this up? Sounds like a pretty sweet pick-up for any PUPPET MASTER fans out there!
In a stateside hotel during the height of World War II, young Danny Coogan dreams of joining the war effort. Following the murder of hotel guest Mr. Toulon by Nazi assassins, Danny finds the old man's crate of mysterious puppets and is suddenly thrust into a battle all his own. He discovers that Nazis Max and Klaus, along with beautiful Japanese saboteur Ozu, plan to attack a secret American manufacturing plant. After his family is attacked and his girlfriend Beth is kidnapped, it is up to Danny and the living deadly Puppets to stop this Axis of Evil...
PUPPET MASTER: AXIS OF EVIL comes from director David DeCoteau and stars Levi Fiehler, Jenna Gallaher (below), Taylor M. Graham, Tom Sandoval and Jerry Hoffman. It hits DVD everywhere July 27th! Unless you're picing up the Collectors Trunk of course!
