Let In Los Alamo

Posted by on October 1, 2010 | 2 comments

UPDATE 10/03/10: NM in the top TEN. As of this afternoon NM’s Own, Wholly NM film Let Me In comes in at #8 for the weekend Box Office take! Raking in ~$5,300,000 opening on just over 2,000 screens! Woot!

The headlining pasty white vamps, creepish villains and blood-let victims of our long chronicled Wholly New Mexico film Let Me In may not be ready to hit the red and yellow carpet, but a premiere party will go on for the local extras, cast & crew in Los Alamos today:

“The Overture film, “Let Me In” premiers at the Reel Deal Theater on Friday with two showings; one at 6:50 p.m. and the other at 9:15 p.m.
Los Alamos County will co-sponsor a “red carpet” premiere with the Reel Deal for “Let Me In,” which will features prizes and special giveaways.
The movie was filmed in Los Alamos nearly a year ago and features several local community members, including teens from the middle and high schools. Staff from the county’s film office will serve free cake and punch in the lobby before each showing and have giveaways from the movie distribution company, such as copies of the book that was the basis of the film “Let the Right One In,” plus free movie posters.
Not only was “Let Me In” filmed in Los Alamos, but the actual town in the movie is Los Alamos. Many local residents were hired as extras and some of the kids in the film are wearing their ‘Topper High School letter
jackets with LA emblazoned on them.
The film has received rave reviews on all fronts and the Internet movie site, Rotten Tomatoes, scored it the highest at 100 percent. Some of the locations included in the filming were the high school, Barranca Mesa, the culvert at the roundabout, Ashley Pond and the ice rink
Expect long lines and sold out shows so buy your tickets early and arrive at the theater well in advance of your show time.”

NM Takes Toronto

Posted by on September 14, 2010 | Comments Off on NM Takes Toronto

This Wholly New Mexico film has one supremely creepy movie poster. Love it?

The forthcoming redux of the Swedish horror Let The Right One In by Hammer films is one bloody NM production. Let Me In premiered last night at the Toronto Film Festival.

Scheduled for wide’ish release on October 1. Click here for full ©Sindication coverage of the production and the official trailer.

The Wholly New Mexico film Passion Play also premiered to some harsh reviews last night in Toronto – but it seems that Bill Murray manages to win high praise overall.

Mayhaps pre-come wide(r) release we will get to roll out the red & yellow for our own NM premieres of these flicks…
