World Premiere of Minerva Black and the Killer Robot Army

31 Aug

bevinwrobot3Shocking Beyond Belief Films, the Sword of Truth Behind the Shield of Entertainment, is proud to announce the release of its latest film series – Minerva Black and the Killer Robot Army.

Minerva Black and the Killer Robot Army is a six-part serial in the vein of the old Saturday matinee cliffhanger serials (i.e., Flash Gordon). Minerva Black, a small-town newspaper reporter, takes on a greedy corporation and its army of killer robots in this comically fierce takedown of government’s love of corporate money.

Audiences will have the opportunity to watch all six episodes back to back at the world premiere of the series – a one-night, two-screenings only event. The premiere takes place on Wednesday, November 14, 2018, at Denver’s Bug Theater in north Denver. Screening times are 6:30 and 9 pm.

Tickets can be purchased here.

Following the world premiere, each new episode of the series will air weekly on ShockingBeyondBelief.com and DenverOpenMedia.org starting on Wednesday, November 21.

The film stars Denver actors Bevin Antea and Chris Hayes, as well as a best-of collection of Denver theater staples, including Emma Messenger, Terry Burnsed, Jonathan E. Brown, Shannon Altner, Emily Paton Davies, Chris Kendall, Gina Wencel and more!

The screenings will also feature a short presentation and Q&A with the filmmakers, as well as prize giveaways! Matt Struck of Really Late Night with Matt Struck will emcee the event.

Minerva Black and the Killer Robot Army is joint effort by husband-and-wife team Ellen K. Graham (producer and screenwriter) and John Aden (director).
