Director David Giancola’s riproaring new sci-fi, Axcellerator, is revving up its world premiere at The Paramount Theater on Friday, January 25 before heading out to the Boston Sci-Fi Film Festival on February 9.
Described as a cross between Back To The Future and James Bond, the film centers on a car thief who stumbles onto a teleportation device and the girl of his dreams. As it stands, the invention of the century takes them on an adventure of a lifetime.
Cast scheduled to be in attendance at the Paramount Theater premiere and after-party include Sam J. Jones, John James, Ryan Wesen, Laura James, comedian Woody Keppel, and John Romeo, as well as the director and crew, according to the press release reprinted at Mountain Times.
“I am really excited to be able to share our film with my hometown first,” reflected Giancola. “The film takes place literally all over the world. Still, I don’t think that anyone but the editors and I will ever know how surprisingly much of the movie was able to be filmed right here in Vermont. We never could have achieved that without the generous support of the local community. That is why it feels so great to be able to return the favor.”
All proceeds from the premiere will be donated to the Rutland Free Library and the Paramount Theatre. Check out the poster below.
