Battle the Beast as RiffTrax Brings ‘Krull’ to U.S. Cinemas for Two Nights This August
June 21, 2018
DENVER – June 21, 2018 – The men of RiffTrax are back to take a glaive* to the early-80s sci-fi cult classic “Krull” with “RiffTrax Live: Krull” this August. Siskel and Ebert called Krull "one of the most boring, nonsensical, illogical fantasies in a long time," which makes the film prime fodder for RiffTrax’s Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett’s (of Mystery Science Theater 3000® fame) live lampooning.
Tickets for “RiffTrax Live: Krull” can be purchased at www.FathomEvents.com or participating theater box offices.
Presented by Fathom Events and RiffTrax, “RiffTrax Live: Krull” will come to more than 600 select movie theaters nationwide live on Thursday, August 23 at 8:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. CT / 7:00 p.m. MT / 8:00 p.m. PT, with an encore presentation on Saturday, August 25 at 12:55 p.m. (local time), through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN). For a complete list of theater locations, visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
From the sky will come the Black Fortress. From the Fortress will come the Slayers to devour the planet of Krull. Then shall a girl of ancient name become queen... She shall choose a king... And, together they shall rule the planet. And, their son shall rule the galaxy!
“Mike, Kevin and Bill continue to bring the laughs and we’ll continue bringing them back to the big screen!” Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said. “We’re proud to announce their return this August with another sci-fi cult classic that is sure to have audiences entertained.”
"I'm a card-carrying member of the American Glaive Appreciator Society, so I'm very excited to get to riff ‘Krull.’” Michael J. Nelson said. “Who knew that Liam Neeons’s particular set of skills also included ‘wearing a filthy jerkin’ and ‘appearing unconvinced by the special effects.’"
“RiffTrax Live: Krull” is the 27th original title event broadcast to movie theaters since Fathom Events and RiffTrax began their partnership in 2009.
