Roar (1981) - More Screenings Than Every This Weekend!

When Noel Marshall's sublimely ill-considered Roar was finally released, 11 years after the project began...well, it was never actually released in North America, it just played a few global markets and disappeared. So, without any sort of hesitation, we are pleased to announce that Roar will be in more theaters this coming week than it has ever been in the past 30 years!

ICYMI, on Saturday night we hosted an AMA with Marshall's son and Roar star John Marshall over on Reddit, which featured a number of interesting revelations including the number of accidental injuries that made it into the final film, the most dangerous injury sustained on set (it's not cinematographer Jan de Bont's scalping) and more, plus details on the home video release coming from Olive Films later this year.

In the meantime, here's where you can catch Roar fever this week. And you should – Ultron will be creeping around theaters for weeks to come, but when else are you going to have the chance to watch over 150 giant cats run unchecked around a film set, causing total, unpredictable chaos?
