Roar (1981) - Release Announced


Anticipation for next week's release of Noel Marshall's catastrophically certifiable Roar has reached a fever pitch. The film, which stars Marshall opposite his then-wife Tippi Hedren and step-daughter Melanie Griffith, plus his sons John and Jerry, plus over 150 untrained giant cats, is the most dangerous movie ever made, with dozens of on-set injuries and hospitalizations.

VICE ran an insightful story this week on the troubled production of Roar over on The Creators Project, and Entertainment Weekly got a taste of the insanity involved in theirexclusive clip debut, which features Marshall vs. about a dozen agitated lions. You may or may not be surprised by how that turns out. 

Also, this month Alamo Drafthouse Cinema locations will be screening Hitchcock's classic The Birds, starring Tippi Hedren, for which Victory members are entitled to two free tickets. Watch one Hedren-in-peril classic and get pumped for the other!

Finally, check out our full list of cities and playdates and take special note of the Q&A opportunities with survivor star John Marshall. Several shows have already begun selling out, particularly in LA, so make sure you secure your tickets in advance.
