Sam Raimi’s Darkman: 25th Anniversary

Popcorn Nights & O Cinema are proud to present the 25th Anniversary of Sam Raimi’s Darkman

Tuesday, February 24th (9pm)

**Live Skype Q&A with actor Dan Hicks (“Evil Dead II”, “Maniac Cop”, “Intruder”, “Darkman”)**

 

Two decades prior to Liam Neeson kicking ass on screen with his particular set of skills in the hugely successful “Taken” franchise, he teamed up with “Evil Dead” creator “Sam Raimi” in the cult classic “Darkman. This film proved that Raimi could break-out of the horror genre with success and also marks the first starring role for Neeson after supporting parts in films like “The Dead Pool”, “Next of Kin”, “Satisfaction”, and “Krull”. I have always loved darkman, thanks in no small part to Larry’s Drake’s sinister turn at villain Robert G. Durant. If you are in the mood for some 90’s awesomeness, make sure to join us for this special screening of DARKMAN

Darkman is a 1990 American superhero action film directed and co-written by Sam Raimi. It is based on a short story Raimi wrote that paid homage to Universal’s horror films of the 1930s. The film stars Liam Neeson as Peyton Westlake, a scientist who is attacked and left for dead by a ruthless mobster, Robert Durant (played by Larry Drake), after his girlfriend, an attorney (Frances McDormand), runs afoul of a corrupt developer (Colin Friels).

Unable to secure the rights to either The Shadow or Batman, Raimi decided to create his own superhero and struck a deal with Universal Studios to make his first Hollywood studio film. He was subjected to a grueling screenwriting process and equally difficult post-production battle with the studio.

Darkman was generally well received by critics and performed well at the box office, grossing almost $49 million worldwide, well above its $16 million budget. This financial success spawned two direct-to-video sequels, The Return of Durant (1994) and Die Darkman Die (1996), as well as comic books, video games, and action figures. Over the years, Darkman has become regarded as a cult film.

The screening will be hosted by Marc Ferman of PopcornNights.com & Keepitclassic.com
