Anchor Bay Films and Troma Entertainment proudly announce that RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH, VOL.1, the film that marks the return of Lloyd Kaufman to the director’s chair and kicks off Troma Entertainment’s 40th Anniversary celebration, will have exclusive theatrical engagements in New York and Los Angeles starting in January 2014 at the following venues:
January 10th – Village East Cinemas, 189 2nd Ave, New York.
January 17th – Laemmle’s NoHo 7 Theaters, 5240 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood
Q&As with Lloyd Kaufman and cast & crew will be take place at both NY and LA locations, with exact dates and times TBA.
With its inclusion in the NY Museum of Modern Art’s “The Contenders 2013” film series (Lloyd shares the same roster with such directorial luminaries as David Lynch, Sofia Coppola, the Coen Brothers and Woody Allen), and recently named “People’s Choice Award for Film of the Year” at the Bizarre Atlantic City festival, RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH, VOL. 1 is Lloyd Kaufman’s latest Tromasterpiece. A hilarious, thoughtful sci-fi event film with themes ripped straight from today’s headlines: the contamination and degradation of the world’s food supply, rampant bullying and LGBTQ love triumphing over prejudice and violence. The film — a revisiting of Troma’s 1986 Class of Nuke ‘Em High — is in the same vein as other classics such as Class of 1984, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School and Carrie, but it’s seen through the unique vision of Lloyd Kaufman and the Troma Team.
Welcome to Tromaville High School, where, unfortunately, the glee club has mutated into a vicious gang of Cretins. Chrissy and Lauren, two innocent lesbian lovers, must fight not only the Cretins, mutants and monsters, but also the evil Tromorganic Foodstuffs conglomerate. Can they and Kevin the Wonder Duck save Tromaville High School and the world?
Come celebrate Troma’s 40 years of creating some of the most revered – and reviled – films of all time!
