With just over two weeks to go before its release, a new UK quad poster and trailer have arrived online for the upcoming documentary Future Shock! The Story of 2000AD. Check them out here…
Future Shock! The Story of 2000AD – the film charting the story of how the multi-award winning comic 2000AD came to be, how it has survived for 37 years, and how it continues to be an innovator and game-changer in both comics and the wider cultural world beyond. Premiered to great acclaim at Edinburgh International Film Festival 2015, this feature documentary is a funny, moving and passionate chronicle of how a band of talented eccentrics came together to create something both visionary and extraordinary.
The publication was violent, edgy, anti-authoritarian and blackly funny and introduced seminal creators such as Alan Moore (Watchmen) and Grant Morrison (Arkham Asylum) to the comics world. The film features interviews with legendary fan-favourite writers, artists and creators – including such names as Neil Gaiman, John Wagner, Alex Garland and Grant Morrison – together with dynamic visual sequences that pay tribute to the ground-breaking artwork published in the comic throughout the years.
Future Shock! The Story of 2000AD is out on December 4th.
