Cool Kickstarter: AFTER LOUIE - An Independent Film Starring Alan Cumming

Getting a film made - whether independent or big-budget - is a crapshoot and a struggle, something I've personally had some experience with over the years. It's often those long-gestating projects that hold the most meaning, and for activist and artist Vincent Gagliostro, that project is AFTER LOUIE - a film that he will soon direct from a screenplay that he's co-written with NYC writer/actor Anthony Johnston. Bridging generations and shaped by Gagliostro's own experiences as an original member of ACT UP (The AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power), AFTER LOUIE tells the story of an artist and former AIDS activist (portrayed by Alan Cumming) "that has become disillusioned with the world around him until he meets a young man." The film is currently on Kickstarter with $17,383 of a $72,500 goal raised with 15 days remaining in the campaign. See the pitch for the film below, complete with words from the cast and filmmakers.

For Grownups: Trailer for Seth Rogen's SAUSAGE PARTY Arrives...

I've attended more than a few sausage parties throughout my life, so when an email from SONY hit my inbox at Rock Father HQ this evening alerting me to their SAUSAGE PARTY EPK, I wasn't sure what they were going for. Then I remembered... there's a naughty film coming out, what's being touted as the "First-Ever R-Rating CG Movie" - meaning: DON'T SHOW THIS TRAILER TO YOUR LITTLE KIDS. You see, they'll want to see it - but it will terrify them! Check out the Red-Band Trailer below...

For Grownups - The Lonely Island's POPSTAR: NEVER STOP NEVER STOPPING Trailer...

Activating the #ForGrownups tag here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine, because right now I've got a movie trailer that's most certainly not for the kids. It's no secret that I've been a big fan of THE LONELY ISLAND, so now that the Restricted Trailer for their new celebrity spoof, POPSTAR: NEVER STOP NEVER STOPPING is out, I feel obligated to share it. There's all kinds of family-unfriendly naughtiness in here, so again - don't watch this with the little ones... unless they're babies, in which case they won't understand the language, and they might think they're seeing "lunch" in there.

Trailer: IFC Films' A BALLERINA'S TALE (Sundance Selects)

A documentary about ballet isn't necessarily something I'd normally feature here on the site, but with both of my girls having wrapped their first run with ballet in the spring - and starting a year-long run of classes this Saturday - my eyes are more open to it (and yes, I did see BLACK SWAN in the theater). IFC Films sent over the trailer for their Sundance Selects release, A BALLERINA'S TALE, the story of Misty Copeland, the first African-American dancer in the American Ballet Theater. The film by Nelson George arrives in theaters and on VOD October 14, 2015. Take a look...
