Dean Cain Set To Star In Sci-Fi Thriller “2050”

Beginning on Valentine’s Day, the award-winning, satiric comic fantasy “2050” will kick off its theatrical release at “home” in New York City, where the film was shot. As reported by Deadline last November at AFM, ANERKE controls the domestic, theatrical distribution rights. The company announced that the film will open in NYC on February 14th, before heading to several other cities thereafter.

Theater chain AMC will join the run in February by opening the film on several of its screens for weekly engagements. With someone from the cast and/or crew in attendance every weekend for Q & A events, “2050” will slowly make its way across select cities including NYC, Los Angeles, Houston, Nashville, and Baltimore. ANERKE’s tour-like release strategy will keep the film in theaters until at least June. Domestic VOD rights are being made available ahead of EFM and Cannes, as the company negotiates offers from potential digital partners.

“2050” tells the story of a married video game developer who is introduced to a warehouse that customizes androids for human companionship. Dean Cain (Lois and Clark, God’s Not Dead, Supergirl) plays the role of Maxwell, the mastermind behind the warehouse. Along with Cain, the film stars a strong ensemble of actors including David Vaughn, Irina Abraham, Devin Fuller, Stefanie Bloom, Stormi Maya, Jace Nicole, Shannone Holt, Hope Blackstock, and more.

The satiric comic fantasy was produced by friends and frequent collaborators David Vaughn (who also plays Michael Greene), Princeton Holt (who also directed), Chris Riquinha (who also plays David), and Brian Ackley (who also wrote the screenplay. When discussing what the release, Ackley shares that he’s mostly looking forward to “an audience willing to be engaged by new ideas, perhaps scary ideas.” About the big screen release Holt adds, “Our DP, Jared Roybal convinced me early on that we should shoot the film in anamorphic 2.35. We obviously are thrilled for it be seen the way we intended.”

The film has premiered at many genre film festivals including Berlin Sci Fi, Other World’s Austin, and Boston Sci Fi Film Festival on February 12th. Along the way, the film has won 10 awards, so far mostly for the performances and cinematography. Dean Cain, along with the rest of the cast, continues to make the national TV rounds promoting the film’s opening. Venues and additional cities to be announced soon.

Watch The #MeToo Inspired Documentary “Rocking The Couch” About Hollywood’s Infamous ‘Casting Couch’

One of the most important releases of the year, ROCKING THE COUCH, available On Demand this February from Avail Films.

Hollywood titans, Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby, have been brought to their knees by the #MeToo movement. But they did not invent Casting Couch. The term casting couch has existed for decades. But in 1992, a case against talent agent, Wallace Kaye, was brought to court by 12 unknown actresses, who braved the loss of their careers, their privacy, and their Hollywood dreams. They stepped forward, despite the advice of their union, and brought the case to the police. Against all odds, they won, and no one listened.

Our documentary explores the case and asks, “Why didn’t we hear about this?” More importantly, why didn’t Hollywood learn from this case? For, if they had, maybe the Cosbys and the Weinsteins would have learned as well, and these sexual exploitations could have been prevented.

“Those who ignore history are bound to repeat it.”

From writer/director Minh Collins, produced by Andrea Evans, Minh Collins, and Jerry Sommer, and starring Lauren Anastasi-Peter, Ikon Barenbolm, Alana Crow, Jennifer Durst, Andrea Evans, Tiffani Fest and Sadie Katz, ROCKING THE COUCH is now available on Amazon U.S and UK.
