Astron-6 Announces Screening Dates for ‘Father’s Day’ PLUS ‘Star Raiders’ Short

Star Raiders

Shortly after our review of Astron-6’s film Father’s Day hit last week it was revealed that the film was leaked online. Now WAIT – before you jump on BitTorrent to grab a copy for you and your closest 50 friends I want to personally offer a plea to reconsider. Not only is Astron-6 a small team of actors, directors and fellow film-lovers, but they also have yet to make much (if anything) off the film since Troma has yet to release it. Instead, I implore you to be patient and either catch an up-coming screening – the dates, times and locations of which are listed below – or wait until the film hits on DVD.

As a bonus to tide you over until then, Astron-6 has released the Star Raiders short that appears in the feature film. Go see it on the big screen and support indie movie makers… better yet, write to Troma and tell them to release it on DVD already!

    Thank you for this!
    Another thing people should know – the copy that got leaked was NOT the final cut… the final cut is two minutes shorter and contains MORE gore, sound effects and better sound. It’s frustrating reading reviews that criticize problems that were fixed long before the final cut.

      You bet, Sebastian! I hate to see indie guys get steamrolled like that.

      That ‘s great to hear about the final cut having even more in store for viewers. Hopefully we’ll get Troma to release that here very soon… at least before summer.
