The Invasion spreads to Los Angeles
Official War of the Worlds: Goliath US Premiere at the Los Angeles 3D Film Festival
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – September 12th 2012: Tripod Entertainment announced today that their 3D animated steampunk feature War of the Worlds: Goliathwill have its official US premiere at the 3D Film Festival in Los Angeles. The festival is the premiere showcase for 3D media in North America and takes place from September 20-22, 2012.War of the Worlds: Goliath will be one of the headliners closing the Festival. Screening is on September 22 from 4:30-6pm at Regal Cinema #5, LA Live Stadium 14 (1000 West Olympic Blvd).

The premiere is open to the public and ticket details can be found here: http://3dfilmfest.eventbrite.com/. The screening will be followed by a Closing Gala hosted and performed by Quincy Jones.

“Being part of the LA 3D Film Festival is HUGE,” explained Director-Producer Joe Pearson. “The Festival brings together thousands of people from all over the globe – from filmmakers to manufacturers – the people who not only understand the cutting edge nature of 3D today, but its future. This is THE place to introduce your 3D movie to the world.”

“It was an extraordinary challenge to build a compelling story about a Martian invasion set in an imagined history, featuring real characters like Teddy Roosevelt, Nikola Tesla and the Red Baron,” said Producer Leon Tan. “The real kicker however was the 3D – our movie is a hybrid of 2D cel character animation and CG vehicles, and we had to make both elements work together technically and aesthetically to create a cohesive and powerful cinematic stereoscopic experience. I think the audience is going to be pleasantly surprised.”

Pearson and Tan will be representing Tripod, accompanied by writer-producer David Abramowitz, at the screening and Q&A session, and will be available for further enquiries.

      Carter, why don’t you see the movie first, as opposed to trolling around the net attacking a film you haven’t seen? A bit hypocritical and obsessive aren’t you?
