While most of you were out and about doing your last minute
Christmas shopping, some of us managed to escape all that and hit up the
Toronto Underground Cinema last night and take in a special screening of Paul
W.S. Anderson’s EVENT HORIZON, and this retrospective was quite a treat…
Anderson and long time production partner Jeremy Bolt
dropped by for a 40 minute Q&A session before the film. Both are currently in Toronto shooting
RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION (the fifth film in the franchise) and were gracious
enough to take some time out of their hectic schedules to reminisce about the
good old days (pictures like the underrated SOLDIER and MORTAL KOMBAT) and gab
about their latest projects such as THE THREE MUSKETEERS and RE 5.
Anderson was charming and pleasant; his recollections were
often humorous and insightful with lengthy discussions about the gruesome
'hell' sequence, and how there would never be a director’s cut involving that
uncensored footage. It seems Paramount accidentally tossed out the original negatives;
sad news for the fans. No chance of an EVENT HORIZON restoration or uncut
version, and apparently there was a lot hacked out.
The fans that came out thoroughly enjoyed the chat, and
Anderson and Bolt delivered on the goods.
Their anecdotes were enjoyable and informative and you truly got the
sense their partnership as director and producer has been rewarding for both,
and their love for creating old-fashion genre flicks is amply evident.
And here's the video to prove it...
